Our first impulse is that this looks a bit too “LOOK AT ME!!!!!” for a group cast photocall:

Our second impulse is, holy shit, there’s a lot going on with this dress. It helps that it’s all black, but if you kept every element and added one color to the mix, we think it would look a right mess. What really grates on our nerves are the multiple straps, too-busy neckline, and keyhole cutout. That’s a lot for one bodice to bear. Add a skirt that doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be and we’re getting eyestrain.
And yet, strangely enough, even though we just did all that bitching, we don’t quite hate it. We appreciate that she kept everything else very toned down. We also appreciate that she tried to make that hair look a little edgy, but we’re not sure that’s working for her. Ambivalence, darlings! The savior of lazy fashion bloggers! You make the call.
IN! Edgy and unique!
OUT! Busy and focus-pulling!
Many kittens rose to Miss Cate Blanchett’s dress, but the majority thought she didn’t bring the Galadriel to the Hobbit premiere, voting it OUT.
