Cate Blanchett and Elle MacPherson were on the red carpet yesterday for the second day (Wednesday January 19th) of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva supporting luxury watch brand IWC’s latest generation of its Portofino watch family, titled “A Night in Portofino.”

Cate wore on the red carpet Dries van Noten Spring 2011 outfit which included a black jacket with satin lapels, a white shirt and white pants.  Don’t know what Elle wore, but will find out and update. I also have some behind the scenes pics of them earlier in the day as well as pics of the party set!

The entire evening celebrated Italian-style joie de vivre, as around 900 guests were transported to the carefree days of the 1950s and 60s. The focal point of the evening was an exhibition by celebrated photographer Peter Lindbergh, whose shoot in the picturesque harbour town of Portofino featured a selection of international friends of the brands including party attendees Cate Blanchett, Kevin Spacey and Elle Macpherson.

The 21st Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (International Fair of Fine Luxury Watchmaking) is held from January 17th to 21st 2011 in Palexpo, Geneva. This private trade fair is a landmark event for the fine watch sector, and at this year\’s show 19 watch brands will present their new products, including Baume & Mercier, IWC, Cartier and Mont Blanc.
