Cate Blanchett is gorgeous in white Givenchy at The Hobbit London premiere

by Jennifer Barton

Cate Blanchett oozed glamour on the green carpet in a fashion-forward Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci frock as she attended the premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey at Leicester Square in London

SHOOTING FINALLY BEGINS ON PETER JACKSON'S THE HOBBIT

The Aussie actress, who plays the Elf Galadriel in the franchise, chose a long-sleeved, high-necked white gown with gold shoulder and cuff accents from the Spring 2013 catwalk, which featured a sexy open back detail and side slits.

Cate teamed the edgy dress with a white clutch and clear vinyl and leather ankle strap sandals from the label and finished off her look with a simple chignon, peachy blush and a pink pout to complement her fair complexion.

The star was joined on the red carpet by co-stars Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellan, Andy Serkis, James Nesbitt, director Peter Jackson and a dapper-looking Prince William, who attended the event solo while wife Kate Middleton recuperated at home after suffering another bout of morning sickness.
