Celebrity Look 4 Less – Cate Blanchett’s & Michelle Obama’s Emerald Green Dress

by Irina on June 27, 2009

You may not remember this summery green dress on Cate Blanchett and that’s probably because she wore it 4 years ago in 2005 to the Napoli Film Festival. The moment I saw Cate in this beautiful Alexander McQueen Fall 2005 dress it made such a big impact on me that I still remember it more than 4 years later. Her look was perfection and the emerald green silk dress looked divine against Cate’s fair complexion. Everyone’s favorite First Lady, Michelle Obama, wore a similar dress when she presented the Gershwin Award for Lifetime Achievement which was given to Stevie Wonder. Mrs O’s emerald green dress was by Kai Milla, Stevie Wonder’s wife who also happens to be a designer, and I was mesmerized by Michelle’s elegant, chic look. It’s so refreshing to see some ladies in the authority world being brave enough to step outside the neutral color palette and wear a bold color.

AK Anne Klein Empire Waist Dress

When I saw this empire waist dress by AK Anne Klein I was instantly reminded of these two looks above. The dress is a great look 4 less alternative and priced at $139 it’s also relatively affordable for a formal event like a wedding or cocktail party.
