Balenciaga Dress Face Off: Cate Blanchett Vs Jennifer Connelly!

  • Pin it

Sometimes I wonder how good fashion can go wrong. The answer in images, below! Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Connelly chose two dresses (similar in style) for Red Carpet movie premieres (two different movies, two different locations). One ended up looking like a puppet on a string and the other like the princess from fairy tales. Guess who’s who?

I really like Jennifer Connelly. As a professional and physical appearance (I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting her personally) but this Balenciaga does her no justice! Beautiful colors complimenting her eyes, sparkling texture for a festive mood and still… Something’s missing! Cate, on the other hand (well, you already know I like her, but still…she has been known for making her share of fashion faux pas!) she’s also wearing Balenciaga. Same Spring Summer 2009 collection. Above the knee dress. But she’s perfection! You can’t get more from that dress, never! Her coolness and that sequined dress were meant to be together in my view! Who’s you favorite Balenciaga girl?

They both look lovely but I would have to pick Cate, simply because she looks happy to be where she is and happy to be wearing that dress.

I adore both women. I’ve been a fan of Jennifer Connelly for ages and Cate like since forever. I might get hit on the head for this but I don’t like either dress. The girls look like Christmas decorations. Hit me again but I don’t like what Nicolas Ghesquire is doing at Balenciaga.
However I think Cate wins here. As Ellington said she looks happy with herself and that’s what matters.
She could light up Oxford Street with that tin foil dress!

I don’t like either dress.. they colours are too cold for winter, and they’re so blue they make me think of swimming pool tiles.

That’s an easy one for me, I second Hapsical and agree with Dolly Bird about Nicolas Ghesquire. So that dress Jennifer wears is actually a “design”? That guy is so overrated……….
