RED CARPET REPORT.....86th Annual Academy Awards Red Carpet Predictions: Cate Blanchett

Actress Cate Blanchett

The "Blue Jasmine" Academy Award-nominated Actress, Cate Blanchett, is a Fashion Muse--with
her perfect model stature, lean figure and almost regal demeanor. Although
Blanchett is known to be an Armani loyal fan and wore one of his creations beautifully
at the 2014 Golden Globes, she has worn different designers lately. Of note,
she looked fabulous in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci at the 2014 Screen Actors Guild

Blue Jasmine Ball Gowns: Two looks from Armani Prive Spring 2014 Haute Couture collection

For Sunday's 2014 Academy Awards, I think
she will go back to Armani and specifically Armani Prive Spring 2014. The
designer's collection showed lots of strapless ball gowns that Blanchett would
easily wear and look marvelous in (sans the couture sequined "shower cap" of course!). These gowns are very "safe" even for Blanchett's fashion-forward standards but I feel that for such a big night, she might go that route. Would I rather hope she went the non-safe fashion route? Yes, definitely. But, we will soon see on Sunday.
