In or Out: Cate Blanchett in Louis Vuitton

Posted on September 20, 2011

Okay, so we sat open-mouthed last night through that Hannah movie, with Cate and Saoirse Ronan. We won’t go so far as to recommend it, unless you’re really in the mood for something weird and unless you want to see Cate plod her way through the worst “suhtherrn ayccint” you’ve ever heard. But two hours of Cate in frumpy hair and sensible heels sent us running to the wires this morning, desperate to see her wearing something fabulous.

This’ll do.

It’s a store opening, not a film premiere, so the rules (if there even are any) are somewhat relaxed here. Even so, she looks fantastic in that dress. We wouldn’t have recommended matching peep-toes, but they work, which is about as far as we can go on complimenting them. Really, it’s the hair and makeup that have us puzzled. We’re not loving the mousey-looking cut she’s attempting to work here and her hair looks bleached out to us. The rather heavy eye makeup with the over-bleached hair is making her look a little bit like Dakota Fanning in The Runaways and just so you know, that’s not really a compliment. Oh, Cate. You can’t have lapsed into thinking “I’ve got a kickass dress and that’s all I need to do,” can you? That’s a rookie mistake. Detailing, sweetie. Detailing.

Vote Now!
IN! Oh, shut up, you bitches. I’d KILL to look that bad!

OUT! That hair and makeup requires a glitter t-shirt cut in half and skin tight acid-washed jeans!

Gwynnie Paltrow’s belly buster of a dress was debated ferociously, but the OUTs prevailed.
