Cate Blanchett in Silver Maison Martin Margiela Dress

Next to Cate, Did Rooney Play It Too Safe?

It's a safe bet that when Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara attend the same event, there will be more than one red carpet look to remember. The actresses proved just that yesterday at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where Cate took home the outstanding performance of the year award.

And while Cate shimmered like her prize in a heavily beaded cocktail dress by Maison Martin Margiela, Rooney — who presented Cate with the award — opted for a chic black dress with lace detailing along its cutout sleeves. Even though their dresses couldn't have been more different, both style stars kept the jewelry to a minimum and finished their looks off with shoes that matched their dresses to a T. While we would love to have either (or both!) of these dresses in our wardrobes, we're left wondering which one you liked better! Let us know, below.
