With her sixth Academy Awards nomination for her role in “Carol,” and the 2016 Oscars just a couple of days away, you might think Cate Blanchett would want to take it easy. Instead, the talented actress decided to do the opposite, arriving in style at the Costume Designers Guild Awards. The actress even went home with an award!

At this point, “Carol” has already earned the 46-year-old both BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, and the Costume Designers Guild decided to honor Cate further with the Lacoste Spotlight Award. During an evening filled with fashionable celebrities, this stunning actress was impossible to ignore in her body-hugging Versace chainmail gown and lavish $1.5 million Tiffany & Co. diamond collar necklace.

Cate was a sultry goddess emanating both elegance and sexiness as she showed off her curves beneath the nearly painted-on fabric of her gown. The Versace couture gown featured a structured fit around the waist and a bodice that emphasized the sharp feminine figure of the actress. The highlight of the stunning dress was certainly the tiny black sequins that shimmered with every movement and seemed to adorn Cate like body armor.

A modest neckline and floor-skimming hemline don’t stop this gown from flashing some flesh. The dress also featured a thigh-high split and back-baring design which added to Cate’s seductive look. Cate allowed her collar of jewels do the talking, styling her wispy blonde locks in a loose updo and opting for minimal makeup. A gorgeous Tiffany & Co. necklace, encrusted with diamonds all over, certainly completed her dazzling display.

A sleek pair of Christian Louboutin pumps were visible through the slit of her gown. Though we can’t ID the specific style, there’s no mistaking those iconic red outsoles. This particular pair featured black satin fabric, covered heels, wide cross-over straps with side cut outs and about 4.5-inch heels.
