Cannes Film Festival 2014: Cate Blanchett shines alongside other stars on day two at Cannes

Cate Blanchett steals the show at the Trophée Chopard after-party alongside Naomi Watts and Julianne Moore on day two of the Cannes Film Festival 2014.

Cate Blanchett arrived at the Trophée Chopard 2014 afterparty in a dress worthy of any red carpet, paired with a tsavorite, pink sapphire and ruby floral necklace from Chopard's Red Carpet collection.

On day two of the 67th Cannes Film Festival, all eyes were on the leading ladies and their red carpet jewels as they attended the premieres, parties and awards ceremonies associated with the most glamorous event in film.

Australian actress Cate Blanchett hasn't put a foot wrong on the red carpet this year. Her appearance on day two of Cannes required two outfit changes, which, true to form, were "very Cate" - ie. perfect - and impeccably styled with Chopard jewels.

As patron of the Trophée Chopard, which aims to encourage new talent by naming them Best Young Actor and Best Young Actress of the year, Blanchett presented Adèle Exarchopoulos and Logan Lerman with awards at this year's ceremony, held at the Hotel Martinez. Already a fan of Chopard's Animal World jewellery collection - she wore a saucer-sized pendant necklace featuring three little birds sitting on a wreath of diamond branches to the 2014 BAFTAs in London - Blanchett chose a pair of unusual shrimp earrings that had already caught The Jewellery Editor's eye earlier this year at Harrods in London.

She teamed the fun earrings, featuring black diamonds, white diamonds, sapphire briolettes and lavender and brown sapphires, all set in rose gold, with a snail bracelet from the same collection, which Maria Doulton selected as one of her favourite jewels from Baselworld 2014.

Adèle Exarchopoulus, star of 'Blue is the Warmest Colour', wore an impressive 55 carat diamond collar necklace to the awards ceremony, while fellow award winner Logan Lerman, who played one of the leading roles in Darren Aronfsky's latest blockbuster 'Noah', sported a steel Chopard Mille Miglia timepiece.

After a quick change, Blanchett emerged at the Trophée Chopard after-party looking magnificent in a glittering sea-green dress, with sparkling roses draped around her neck. One of the most impressive pieces from Chopard's Red Carpet Collection, the floral necklace features hundreds of tsavorites, pink sapphires and rubies while remaining incredibly flexible. Across town, at the CK Collection & Euphoria Calvin Klein Celebrate Women In Film event, Naomi Watts wore what was easily the most diamond-heavy necklace of the day: a vintage necklace in platinum and diamonds from the Bulgari Heritage Collection, dating from the 1930s.

Earlier in the day, in the bright Cannes sunshine, actress Julianne Moore impressed fashion commentators when she stepped out on the red carpet for the premiere of 'Mr Turner' in a custom-made Louis Vuitton gown with a burgundy leather corset and spiral skirt in black embroidered satin. Her jewels didn't disappoint either: a pair of rich, red ruby and diamond wreath earrings by Chopard and two rose gold chain bracelets.

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.
