Delpozo is fast becoming a favourite within both fashion and Hollywood circles. This Madrid-based label was first founded in the 1970s by Jesús del Pozo but over the past two seasons, headed up by creative director Josep Font and rebranded since 2011 as just Delpozo, it has grown exponentially and, divine demi-couture clothing aside, that’s down to the clever idea to present at New York Fashion Week.

It’s become a bit of a smug Front Row secret and a secret Hollywood favourite, but a global seal of approval came last week when Cate Blanchett and her stylist Elizabeth Stewart made a radical move away from the expected uber-brand of the Cannes red carpet by choosing a matchy blue and red scalloped, trapeze crop top and ankle-swinging tailored trousers. Like a modern pantsuit from the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, the Australian actress brought more than a dash of directional dressing to what is most commonly a safe zone of swishy dresses.

Cate may have put Delpozo into the international spotlight, but she’s not the first A-lister to hop onto the label’s quirky finishes, full skirts and joyful prints. And the fan club spans from starry young’uns like Kiernan Shipka through to Leslie Mann, Margot Robbie and Fan Bingbing.

The average cost of a dress is around the £2,000 mark; so don’t expect to see this covering the backs of all and sundry. However, we do predict that with this season’s stand-out florals and midi skirts more paparazzi moments will be Delpozo’d very soon.
