Cate Blanchett stuns on the red carpet in daring frilly dress

Cate Blanchett has walked the red carpet at the prestigious BFI awards in London in one of her most daring looks yet.

She was attending the event as the guest of honour after being awarded the BFI Fellowship last year and certainly made an impression in a dress hot off the catwalk in Milan.

While the Australian actress is known for taking risks on the red carpet, she stepped it up a notch with a designer number by Gucci.

The dramatic dress features a plunging neck line and ruffled shoulders in yellow, with a red sash and long black skirt tying it all together.

While most people would struggle to pull off a dress like that, Cate had many naming her as the best dressed of the night.

“Absolutely LOVE this on her. Simple but glamorous….Wow,” said one admirer.

“Very dramatic, very couture. I love it but it needs someone of height and charisma to carry it off – which Cate possesses. The sleeves are reminiscent of Diana’s wedding dress!” commented another.

Others though weren’t so sure…

“She looks like a frill-neck lizard,” wrote one commenter online.

“Way too much going on here! Maybe if the frills weren’t there I’d like it, but it’s all too busy right now,” said another.
