Cate Blanchett attended the Opening Night Gala of the 10th Annual Dubai Film Festival held at the Madinat Jumeriah Complex in Dubai, United Arab Emirates this evening.

What a dramatic way to close the week, with the Queen looking outstanding wearing a Valentino Spring 2014 gown.

Her maroon short sleeved cady gown featuring a column skirt and a cape-style bodice with overlay falling down her back, was styled with a breath-taking Hervé Van der Staeten ancient artisan inspired tiered gold necklace.

This is how a statement necklace enhances the look. Someone please show this to the Duchess.

Gold Christian Louboutin ‘Sylvette’ sandals and a rose-gold watch completed her look.
