Cate Blanchett repeats a spectacular custom McQueen at the Venice Film Festival

Cate Blanchett poses on the red carpet at the a screening of Amants ( Lovers ) for the 77th Venice International Film Festival ( La Biennale Di Veneziale ) on Thursday 3 September 2020

As much as I have concerns about film festivals conducting “business as usual,” I have to say, I’ve enjoyed the treat of new fashion photos this week. They’re a nice little gift! I didn’t care much for Cate Blanchett’s repeat of that Esteban Cortazar gown on Wednesday night at the Venice Film Festival, but I do applaud her effort to rewear old looks in her closet. And she pulled out a spectacular one last night. Cate originally wore this custom Alexander McQueen top to the 2016 BAFTAs, only at that time, she paired the (absolutely gorgeous) top with a bad skirt. In Venice, Cate put the top with a pair of tuxedo pants which I NEED IN MY LIFE. I need this whole look, actually. That McQueen top is just so special and beautiful.

More photos from Venice: here’s Stacy Martin in Louis Vuitton. I find this… underwhelming. It’s not a bad dress at all and it looks nice on her, but if you’re risking your health to attend a film festival, maybe bring something besides a dinky little cocktail dress?

Frida Aasen in Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition Spring 2020. I kind of love this? Totally appropriate for Venice and just a great, dramatic gown.

Taylor Hill in custom ETRO. This is just a velvet mini-robe and I feel like no one needs to see her Venetian canal!

Bonus: Tilda Swinton wandering around Venice in what amounts to a high-fashion tracksuit.

    Taylor Hill and Etro is such a beautiful combo. A white girl who thinks mocking indians is fun and a company whose top manager go to slavery themed parties and do black face. Perfection.

    • Hello says:

      I’m out of the loop – would you mind sharing what you know?

      • Lauren says:

        There are several clips of her (she filmed herself mind you) mocking Indian accents and another of her and her boyfriend harassing a taxi driver with her mimicking an Indian accent and asking the driver if he smells like curry. The we have Carlo Mengucci, the marketing director at Etro who participated in a slavery themed party. There were people in chains, people in blackface and people in loincloths with animalier furs. It was disgusting. They deserve each other really.

      • Hello says:

        I’m speechless. Just awful – truly can’t comprehend what people are thinking. Thank you for sharing

    I love Cate Blanchett’s outfit. She looked drowsy in the last pictures you posted but she got some sleep because she is awake and feeling herself in Those Pants. Did she also gain some weight? If so, it’s doing her wonders.
    Swinton is Swinton. Now I want a glam shiny tuxedo track suit. Have they posed together on the red carpet already?

  3. Astrid says:

    I love the top, especially paired with the tuxedo. My only quibble is that the pants don’t seem to fit right.

  4. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    God I love Tilda.

  5. Veronica S. says:

    It’s not often I clutch my pearls and go “That’s inappropriately short,” but that Etro is…inappropriately short. I refuse to believe that was meant to be worn alone. Guess she got the attention she wanted, though.

    I actually liked the skirt she wore that McQueen with the last time around because it gave it sort of a “wilderness” look between the feathers and floral pattern, but I do like it with the pants here, too. And that hair! What a nice little bit of stylish flair to round off the look.

    • Hello says:

      Agreed! I really like the styling- just a bit on the short side

      • Veronica S. says:

        Yeah, that’s my issue with it. It would be really cute if it hit mid-thigh or even at the knee, but instead of enjoying the dress, all my eyes do is zero in nervously on her crotch waiting for the flash. Not to mention the proportions are all off because of the length – that dramatic shoulder cut needs a longer skirt to balance it.

  6. Becks1 says:

    Oh I live that McQueen top with the tuxedo pants. That’s a gorgeous look.

    And man I love Tilda Swinton.

  7. Embee says:

    Frida Aasen (with whom I am completely unfamiliar) looks so much like Margot Robie to me! I love her gown. That is a GOWN.

  8. Lisa says:

    Love the whole outfit on Cate.

  9. lucy2 says:

    I love all of these except for the Etro. Too short and the design makes her look boxy.
    I even like the LV?! I never like their designs.
    Cate’s is really beautiful.

  10. Jalene says:

    Tilda ❤️ My androgynous spirit animal.

    I need that track suit. LOL

    • K says:

      Can’t you just see Timmy Chalamet wearing that exact same outfit? In fact, I think they could probably swap most of their clothes and look equally striking.

  11. Libellule says:

    That top is simply gorgeous

  12. GR says:

    Tilda is the best – and her smile even looks real.

  13. Lightpurple says:

    That McQueen top is exquisite. I would wear it with everything. Tuxedo trousers, jeans, shorts. Everything.

  14. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    I don’t know Stacy Martin and the dress is blah – but the SHOES?! AMAZING!

    • josephine says:

      I bet that dress is a lot prettier in person. I feel like the detail is getting lost and the belt is taking away from the dress.

  15. ArtHistorian says:

    Cate’s outfit is amazing! That gorgeous top gives such an edge to the black tuxedo.

    I’ll be frank, Tilda’s outfit is ugly but she’s Tilda Swinton so she gets away with it. No one else would.

  16. a reader says:

    Tilda’s blazer!!! AHHHHHHHHH WANT.

  17. candy says:

    Oh Tilda.
