Cate Blanchett Double Shot

Posted on July 25, 2013

We happened to catch a long interview with Cate the other night, conducted by Charlie Rose. Immediately we sucked in air between our teeth, which is never a good sign. “Ohhhh,” said Tom. “She’s become kind of … pretentious, hasn’t she?” This was upsetting to us, because we want to love her in that creepy way of people who claim to love other people they will never know personally. Fortunately, we sat through the next forty minutes of the interview, and while it’s true she’s adopted some seriously actress-y affectations, it turns out she’s still really charming and extremely intelligent; probably one of the most intellectual of the big screen A-List actresses of the moment. We breathed a sigh of relief, secure in the knowledge that she would, in fact, be our special friend, if only she had a chance to. We’re not weird.

Hit it, Cate:

We love this so much. It’s just so chic in that way that very few ladies can pull off. Sure, the jacket’s easy-breezy, but those pants would be a challenge for most people. But we adore the idea of finishing the look off with those showy sandals. The whole thing just screams “I’m a sophisticated world traveler who only flies First Class, bitches. Except I would never call you ‘bitches’ because I’m so much more classy than that. Also: I would never say “classy” because no one with class ever does.”

What a chatty little outfit.

This almost bored us in comparison. If you’re going to wear McQueen on the red carpet, why would you pick something so boring and pedestrian? She looks okay, but she’s not turning heads in a way one would assume when Cate Blanchett is wearing Alexander McQueen on the red carpet. Great bag and shoes, though. We just wish the dress had a little more oomph to it.
