Cate Blanchett Steps Out in Stella McCartney, Christian Dior Couture for 2014 Zurich Film Festival

Cate Blanchett was on the 2014 Zurich Film Festival Circuit over the weekend, turning to high-end designers for two appearances on Saturday, September 27. The 45-year-old maintained her feminine sophistication, as always, in ladylike getups by Stella McCartney and Christian Dior Couture.

For the IWC Photo Exhibition opening, the actress stepped out in a textural blue dress from Stella McCartney’s Resort 2015 collection. There was definitely a vintage vibe with large buttons and side pockets, but the piece stayed fresh and on-trend with a triangular midriff cut-out. She teamed the dress with dark-mahogany pointed-toe pumps, which tapped back into the retro feel.

Later that day Cate attended a screening of Blue Jasmine, the film which won her an Oscar for Best Actress, in a Christian Dior frock coat from its Fall 2014 Couture collection. The forest-green piece with full skirting and kinked-up collar looked a regal dream once teamed the same mahogany heels from earlier in the day. The embellished white belt gave the look shape, while also adding an element of modernity.
