Week’s Best Celebrity Style: Cate Blanchett, Kate Hudson, Jessica Chastain and more

By Ava Baccari

It takes a certain confidence to pull off a bold, notice-me print. That's why we're taking style cues from red-carpet pros like Kerry Washington and Cate Blanchett, who never fail to compliment their vibrant personalities with colourful looks - and give us serious spring #fashiongoals in the process.

While in Tokyo, Cate visited the Louis Vuitton Exhibition “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez,” fittingly attired in a striking number by the French fashion house. The Australian Oscar winner, 46, stepped out in a sculptural black, white and yellow colour-block dress with a ruffled hem from Louis Vuitton's Fall 2016 collection.

Kerry attended the United Way of Greater Los Angeles Women's Summit dressed like a boss. The Scandal star, 39, donned a ladylike midi Dolce & Gabbana floral dress and strappy black heels for the event.

Jessica Chastain proved that prints can be playful and sophisticated in the sleek Prabal Gurung dress she wore to the opening of Long Day's Journey Into the Night on Broadway in New York. The 39-year-old came out to support actress Jessica Lange, who's starring in the epic production of American playwright Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer Prize-winning play.


Always staying true to her bohemian roots, Kate Hudson attended the premiere of her latest film, Mother's Day, in an embelished Valentino gown. The pale-pink ballet-inspired halter dress featured a geometric print and a high-waisted silhouette, giving it a distinct '70s vibe. Totally en pointe with the mom of two's breezy style.

Playful prints were also spotted on Florence Welch (in Gucci) and Canadian model Hilary Rhoda (in Fendi). Even Dame Helen Mirren couldn't resist the trend, attending the Chaplin Awards Gala in New York in a pink floral Dolce & Gabanna gown. In style and in life, the stars are clearly all about having fun – something we can all take away!
