So many excited fans turned up to the Royal Premiere of the Hobbit on Thursday night gone. Many die-hard fans braved the cold to catch a glimpse of their favourite stars. The FashionThirst team's attention was taken by Australian Cate Blanchett who stars in this tale of an unexpected journey in to London. Cate sported a long-sleeved, plain column, high, turtle-necked white Givenchy gown with fitted waist, bell sleeves, gold/metal shoulder rims and cuff accents. Each time she turned around on the green carpet we viewed the graceful open back detail on the dress as well as the thigh-high side slits (no thermal undies spotted !). Cate carried a white matching Givenchy clutch bag and sandals. Her hair was done up in a simple chignon bun. Simple, graceful and futuristic in tandem. The elegant Aussie stole the limelight and wooed the crowds. All in all a great night with some dazzling celebs.
Look out for FashionThirst's up and coming feature articles - it's winter in Europe and we all book vacations to sunnier climes our next featured articles will be on bikini designs from Miami and of course for the party season we have 'On point trendy party dress of the month' .

Dresses from the Burberry range demonstrate so much of their current designer's talent for blending style and colour in an innovative and inventive new way each season. Cara Delevingne who picked up the Model award, in recognition of her contribution to international fashion at the British Fashion Awards event recently sported a bright green, metallic, mini shift Burberry dress. The event was held at London's Savoy Hotel. Her dress shined and sparkled as she graced the red carpet. this simple design was powerful and didn't merit the need for any over the top accessories. Cara's look is very popular big bambi eyes and a button nose and her trademark thick eyebrows. Her choice of dress was a show stopper despite Alexa Chung's award for best Style icon. Alexa's Simone Rocha's Summer 2013 dress lacked the 'wow' effect. Carla stole the show. The FashionThirst team are keeping an eye out for more from the Burberry dress collection. Watch this space !
