CANNES, France (AP) -- Radiant Academy Award-winner Cate Blanchett broke the fashion mold with panache at Friday's "How to Train Your Dragon 2" screening at Cannes in a multi-colored, bejeweled bodice and a chic black pleated floor length chiffon skirt, courtesy of Givenchy.
While Cannes is a mainstay of va-va-voom ball gowns, Blanchett stayed ahead of the fashion pack by thinking outside the box. Her bold look got her noticed for all the right reasons -- sapphire chandelier Chopard earrings added a touch of class.
The colorful, tropical plume embellishments on the bust, taken from a fall-winter 2014 ready-to-wear look by Riccardo Tisci, also nicely mirrored the dragon-theme of Dreamworks' latest animated picture, for which she lends her vocal talents.
