She looked super-elegant and phenomenally regal in a stunning embellished nude gown from Giorgio Armani’s Prive Fall 2013 collection. It was a very romantic outfit, enhanced all the more so by her inherent grace.

Although the dress had plenty going in the way of sparkle, she chose to add even more with a bracelet, ring and dazzling dangle earrings by Chopard, the last standing out almost as much as the outfit itself. She completed the look with nude makeup and exquisitely curled locks. Whether or not she had taken home the little gold man that night, Cate was definitely one of the winners on the red carpet.

She was genuinely surprised when her name was announced during the awards ceremony and her jaw dropped when she realised she had won.
The accolade meant the world to her and she admitted that she slept with the golden statue that night.
