This year’s Oscars are fast-approaching, and are very much shaping up to be a roll call of the best of the best. A particular highlight is the ‘Best Actress’ category. While we’re rooting for our girl Saoirse Ronan (or as Dennis Quaid might say it, “Sheesha Ronan”), we think Cate Blanchett may be the one to beat for her stunning performance in Carol.
Regardless of whoever takes home the gong on the night, we’ve no doubt that both ladies will look fabulous as always. Cate’s red carpet style is classic and elegant and she just never seems to get it wrong when it comes to occasion dresses. Here’s how you can steal her style.
Pale and interesting
If you’re a sucker for a whimsical lace floor-length dress (or even if you’re in the market for a budget-friendly wedding dress), this Jarlo Djuna Long Sleeve Maxi Dress makes for a lovely choice that brings back memories of Cate Blanchette’s wonderful gúna from this year’s Golden Globes.
If you want to recreate Cate’s polished bob, smoothen the hair out using this Remington S3500 Ceramic Straightener along with a couple of drops of Colour Wow Pop & Lock Shellac Gloss. If you have longer hair, fake a shorter cut by tucking and pinning your locks using bobby pins.

Artful blue dress
For a look that’s summery and light, copy the baby blue gown that Cate wore at this year’s Palm Springs festival with this Jarlo Cora Cold Shoulder Maxi Dress. Add on some dainty pieces like these Shoe Box Isabella Minimal Ankle Strap Heeled Sandals, a cute Floral Clutch Bag and these sparkly Oasis Flower Cuff Earrings.
To give the look an artsy feel, cover up using this Joe Browns Stunning Pattern Cape and add a pop of drama with this NYX Matte Lipstick in Eden Red.

Maxi skirt and blouse combo
For a look that’s slightly alternative but nonetheless perfect for formal events (like the premiere of the recent Cinderella movie – not to put too fine a point on it!) , try copying Cate’s blouse and skirt combo. This So Fabulous Jersey Maxi Skirt (which is available in sizes 14-28) would go perfectly with this vintage-inspired V by Very Dobby High Neck Blouse.
Do like Cate has done and inject some fun with the addition of interesting accessories. This River Island Ethnic Style Necklace, glamorous Snake Box Clutch Bag and a pair of Dune Ibby Strapped Heel Sandals would go together beautifully.
