Cate Blanchett Shines in Stunning Metallic Gown at Cannes Film Festival, Receives Standing Ovation for Rumours

Cate Blanchett was every inch the silver screen queen as she stepped out at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of her new film Rumours on Saturday night. 

The Australian actress, 54, stunned in a puffy gold gown that featured dramatic pleating on the bodice, beaded shoulders and a dramatic fishtail skirt. 

Looking like a woman half her age, the svelte blonde highlighted her age-defying complexion with pink blush, taupe lipstick and liquid eyeliner, and swept her hair back into a messy up-do. 

She completed her look with gold drop earrings and a large ring on her wedding finger. 

Cate beamed and waved at photographers and adoring onlookers as she swanned down the red carpet with the cast and directors of Rumours – which tells the story of world leaders who meet at the G7 but get lost in the forest while trying to write a joint statement.

Rumours received a four-minute standing ovation from the crowd following its screening at Cannes, according to Variety. 

‘While some of the auditorium emptied out while the credits rolled, the majority of filmgoers waited patiently to pay their respects to the film’s stars,’ the publication reported. 

Cate’s co-star Alicia Vikander did not attend, however.

The event comes after Cate was accused in February of ‘destroying holidays’ with her ‘noisy’ renovation works on her £5million (AUD $9.4million) Cornwall eco home.

The Australian actress and her husband Andrew Upton bought and demolished a former cottage in Mawgan Porth in 2020 to make way for their five-bedroom eco-home.

She was then accused of a ‘blatant land grab’ by purchasing an additional plot of land with plans to turn it into a driveway and parking for the holiday home.

The plans subsequently sparked a fresh row with a Cornwall holiday home owner, who accused Cate of having a ‘total disregard’ for neighbours with the renovations.

Karen Burgess, who owns a neighbouring holiday let, alleged that ‘noise’ from the construction had ‘destroyed’ the holidays of her guests across the past year.

In a complaint filed to Cornwall Council’s planning portal, she claimed to have lost £60,000 (AUD $114,075) in rental revenue due to the construction, Cornwall Live reported.

She claimed at the time that she was having to advertise her holiday home as being impacted by construction noise, but architect firm Watershedd insisted the noise was coming from another development rather than Cate’s.

In her January objection to the latest plans, she reportedly said: ‘I am deeply concerned that there has already been a total disregard for the noise that has destroyed the family holidays of all my guests […] throughout 2023.

‘The losses are more than £60,000 last year and still, we are having to advertise as a property affected by building noise, we thought [Blanchett’s property] work was finally over and now there is a new application for groundworks, this work should NOT be permitted during the holiday season.

‘Never before in the bay, have we ever experienced such a blatant disregard for the people who flock here for their holidays and residents’ enjoyment of the area during the holiday season.’

However, a spokesperson for Watershedd – the architect firm behind Cate’s build – denied her claims and said the noise was coming from other nearby developments.
