Cate Blanchett Returns to Fabulous

After donning a puzzling dress for the Los Angeles premiere of her new film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on Monday, Cate Blanchett is back to looking sexy, svelte and fabulous!

The Aussie thespian has a history of looking stunning on the red carpet.

However, Oscar-winner Blanchett, 39, wore a bell-shaped, sparkling metallic Alexander McQueen outfit to the Los Angeles event the other night, causing her to look more like a Christmas tree than a leading lady.

But at Wednesday’s Button premiere, Cate stunned crowds at Australia’s Sydney Theatre with her shimmering green Balenciaga gown.

Last Friday, the Elizabeth actress was honored with her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Up next for Blanchett is Wes Anderson’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox, in which she stars opposite George Clooney, Bill Murray and Anjelica Huston. It’s due in theaters in November 2009.
