Cate Blanchett wows at 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' premiere

09 December 2008


It's tipped for Oscar success next year, but you'll forgive us for being a little distracted at last night's LA premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by the dresses. After all this is a movie that stars Brad Pitt (accompanied by Angelina Jolie), Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton and drew in quite a fashionable crowd last night. Ange went long in black (how come we're not surprised?) but Eva Longoria-Parker cheered us up with her striking turquoise satin dress. Oh, and if you want to know about the movie too, here's the low-down. Adapted from the 1920s story by F Scott Fitzgerald The Curious Case of Benjamin Button tells the story of a man born in his eighties (Brad Pitt) who ages backwards and the love he finds along the way (Cate Blanchett). It's not set for release in the UK until next February - just in time for Oscar season, where it's predicted to compete in the Best Picture category - but you can see a sneak preview of the trailer here. All last night's fashion's below to whet your appetite too...
