Requiring thousands of hours of cutting and sewing, this beadwork couture dress by Givenchy drapes flawlessly on Blanchett’s statuesque figure. It is decorated with numerous Swarovski crystals and pearls, forming an intricate piece that’s contrasted by it’s laser-cut, robotic edges.
3. In Armani Privé and Chopard at the 2014 Oscars
The 2014 Oscars proved to be a landmark moment for the actress, winning the coveted Best Actress award for her role in Blue Jasmine. Quite rightly, she attended the event in this gorgeous, nude crystal-embellished gown by Armani Privé. Accentuating her fairytale look further are her elegant Chopard jewels, comprising a pair of 62-opal earrings, a brown diamond bracelet, and pear-shaped diamond ring. This is definitely a statement-making number.
- In Maison Margiela and Tiffany and Co. at the 2015 Oscars
The following year after her Oscars win, Blanchett wore a more toned-down look at the 2015 Academy Awards.

For a finishing touch, she wears a giraffe-inspired Tiffany and Co. bracelet in gold, adding an eye-catching accent to her look.
