Cate Blanchett in Louis Vuitton at the Cesar Awards: lovely or overworked?

The SAG Awards were not the only weekend award show. On Friday, the Cesar Awards were held in Paris. They got a lot of international coverage because Cate Blanchett was given their lifetime achievement award and she came to the event in person and spoke some French. Cesar Awards are rarely given to non-French actors, so it’s pretty notable that she was honored. Care wore a very cool Louis Vuitton ensemble which probably only really works on her. Is this better with or without the jacket? I think it’s better without?

Adele Exarchopoulos in a simple black gown… kind of boring but chic. Boringly chic. Love the Cartier necklace.

I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I love Lea Seydoux’s Louis Vuitton look too? It suits her, the simplicity of the black column gown combined with the polka-dotted cape. It looks incredibly cool.

    Cate’s look was probably really cool in person, but didn’t photograph well. It’s hard to make out exactly what she’s wearing.

    I didn’t like Cate’s until the photo without the jacket. Then I really liked it!

    Leave the jacket. It looks better without.

    Blanchett looks like if an aspiring matador’s mother ran out of time to sew the costume.

    I love Lea Seydoux’s ensemble! Maybe because she reminds me of a vintage Barbie? She looks old school glamorous and I love the vivid red lip.

    Are the polka dots suppose to look like that? Like mishaps and mistakes? Looks unfinished.

    But the look is *chef’s kiss*

    I want to wear Lea Seydoux’s gown with the polka-dot cape every damn day!

    Love the dot cape

  9. Kaye says:

    I thought the “polka dots” were sequins, some shiny and some not.

    I love them all – especially the polka dots. Is the snake necklace Bvlgari? They’re usually the serpent-types…

    Lea Seydoux looks amazing! I love everything about her look – the styling is spot on. I prefer Cate’s look without the jacket. The shape of it is odd over that jumpsuit and looks ill-fitting. It would probably look great over a mini dress or an all black look.

    They give this Cesar to a non french actor almost every year. In my opinion it’s a way to give a “Hollywood touch” and glamour to the ceremony.
