In or Out: Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé

Posted on July 06, 2011

Okay, we’ve all had our fun at Ke$ha’s expense; now the real work starts. As dedicated minions may know, Empress Cate of Ferocity has let us all down in recent days; opting to forego her normal fierce and fabulous looks in order to show up on red carpets looking like a dowdy real estate agent or loopy art school teacher.  The world recoiled in horror; the moon fell out of the sky; cats and dogs cohabitated. The End Times were upon us.

Until….

YES! SHE’S BACK! THANK YOU, MR. JESUS!

Only…

Well, it’s all a bit monochromatic, yes? It’s a fantastic suit, and we’re grateful she skipped that second tier on the skirt (as well as the satin leggings), but did she have to go with red shoes, a red purse, and orangey-red earrings? That will never not look totally Barbie to us. To our way of thinking, if you’re going to strip the outfit of its more out-there elements, then you need to style what remains correctly, otherwise it’s going to look a little severe. Something a little more interesting in the jewelry and shoe departments would have made us happier. As it is, we’re mostly relieved that she seems to be getting her mojo back.

VOTE NOW!


IN! She’s streamlined and fierce, bitches!

OUT! Lawyer Barbie!

The Minion Opinion on Ke$ha’s unique brand of attention-seeking was a near-unanimous OUT.
