This is like a scene out of a Nora Ephron movie, where a crowd of stock-character New Yorkers learn to let down their defenses and love the plucky out-of-town girl with the funny accent and the big dreams.
Y’know, now that we think of it, it’s kind of a shame Cate never got to star in a Nora Ephron rom com. She’d have brought a wry intelligence to the treacly, feel-good material, much in the same way she put a spin on the standard neurotic Woody Allen female lead in Blue Jasmine.

Anyway, we’re rambling. She looks chic and she’s clearly reading our advice to her because she finally got rid of that hideous bag and traded it in for something chic and classically “New York rich bitch.” She’s even making the drop crotch pants work for her. And she’s obviously very in love with those sandals and shades, because she’s been wearing them everywhere all month. We’re not in love with either pair, but we’re coming around on them. They certainly work with this outfit.
Congratulations, Cate. You’re a New Yorker.
