To paraphrase the Countess of Trentham, “Difficult color, peach. Very tricky.”
Cate Blanchett attends the premiere of “Blue Jasmine” at the Hayden Cremorne Orpheum in Sydney, Australia in a Roksanda Ilincic dress.

But Miss Cate does have a way of making tricky or underwhelming garments sing when they’re put on her. The current styling vogue is to eschew belts on everything, but this is a dress that could have used a thin little belt to add some contrast and give it a bit more shape. It’s pretty and flowy, but ultimately it looks like a nightgown to us and even Cate Blanchett can’t work a peach effectively. It’s not her color. Actually, it is her color in that she’s pretty close to peach-colored herself, which is why she shouldn’t wear it.
We suppose we’re grateful that this version isn’t half leather.
