CBD - Melbourne Exhibition Building


I visited the AFI red carpet last night at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre. This photo is of the always angelic Cate Blanchett. Unfortunately, I did not have my usual SLR camera and instead was using a simple point and shoot. And to make matters worse my camera battery died. I was unable to ask Cate for a proper photo but I did ask her who she was wearing. She replied with “Rodarte, a new American brand.”

Cate’s shift was adorned with pleated undulating waves of creamy peach chiffon. The hand-finished subtle detailing in organic forms is a classic signature of Rodarte.

As mentioned in my previous post, Rodarte were runners up in the 2006 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award. A spread of all the nominees is featured in the November issue of US Vogue... and how ironic that featured on the cover is the one and only Cate Blanchett!!

I think this shot is beautiful. Even though its not a frontal shot of Cate, it still captures the moment and her etheral beauty.

Cate is such an icon. She harks back to old hollywood glamour

definitely best dressed at the AFI's, everyone else looked cheap and nasty.

agree. this shot is better than the ones i've seen of her from the front.

she has a much better side profile.
