Cate Blanchett strikes an unusual look on red carpet
Hollywood actress Cate Blanchett cut an unusual silhouette at last night’s Blue Jasmine New York premiere
The 44-year-old attended the Museum of Modern Art event in a soft peach Balenciaga feather dress, styled with the designer’s sweeping reverse cape to match.
Although not to everyone’s taste, the actress managed to carry the unconventional look off with elegance.
Blanchett was joined at the launch of the Woody Allen drama by fellow Blue Jasmine actors Alec Baldwin, Joy Carlin and Richard Conti.
Starring actor Alec Baldwin attended the premiere with his pregnant wife Hilaria Thomas, who is due to give birth late this summer. The yoga instructor showed off her growing bump in a white maxi dress.
American actress and comedienne Amy Poehler, although not in the film, had her own group of fans on the red carpet who were all eager for her to sign autographs. She chose to show off her pins for the event in blue satin shorts.
Blue Jasmine, which is set for release in Ireland and the UK in September, tells the story of a pampered New York housewife (Blanchett) whose life falls apart when her wealthy husband (Baldwin) is discovered to be a criminal.
