Cate Blanchett in Givenchy

Posted on December 13, 2012

Ah, there’s the Galadriel we were looking for:

Cate Blanchett attends the ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Royal Film Performance in a Givenchy gown paired with Givenchy shoes and Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry.

We didn’t much love the outfit she wore for the film’s Wellington premiere, but this feels far more in line with how we think she should dress for an event like this. When your big-budget Elven princess film is having its premiere, you break out the ethereal gowns to wow the crowd. We’re old-fashioned that way. It’s a gorgeous and dramatic gown and she’s rocking the shit out of it. In fact, we think she looks magnitudes better than the model on the runway. There’s not one thing we dislike about this look.

Actually, that’s not quite true. She’s sporting those nutty Givenchy heels we wrote about a while back. She’s actually doing a pretty good job with them, but we still don’t love them. They don’t detract from the look, though, so we’re willing to avert our eyes and focus on the fabulous.
