Stepping out for a promotional appearance, Cate Blanchett showed up at the New Zealand premiere of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” today (November 28).

The “Curious Case of Benjamin Button” babe looked gorgeous as she strolled around outside the Embassy Theatre in Wellington, sporting a pink and white top with black trousers.

Evangeline Lilly was also on hand, rocking a shocking new coif along with a sparkling pink dress.

In career news, Cate is in talks to star in the forthcoming Disney reboot of “Cinderella,” though nothing is official just yet.

If she scores the gig, Blanchett would play Lady Tremaine, the evil stepmother of main character Cinderella. Mark Romanek has been named as director and Chris Weitz will write the script.
