Paris is hosting the annual Haute Couture fashion week and yesterday, it was the turn of Armani Privé to show. The show consisted of a high-bling collection, with every piece cut from rich textured fabrics and embellished with thousands of silver sequins and crystals.
Cate Blanchett was reportedly guest of honour at the show and wore this beautiful Japanese print Privé dress with statement shoulders. Joining her on the front row was Megan Fox, also in Armani Privé, at her first Couture show.
I don’t know about you but I can’t help but compare the two actresses. They are almost polar extremes of beauty; Fox in a figure-hugging one-shoulder dress, tanned with high-gloss coiffeured hair vampish red lips and nails and a heavily made up face. Blanchett the exact opposite, with natural hair and skin, and make-up that allows her perfect complexion to glow from across the catwalk. You can’t deny that they both look fantastic but I think with her quiet confidence and natural, classy look, Blanchett has it in the bag.
