Cate Blanchett in Alexander McQueen at the 2014 BAFTA Awards

Let us start the day with a prayer. Please open your prayer books to the page marked “Fierce as fuck.”



Cate Blanchett attends the 2014 BAFTA Awards in London in an Alexander McQueen dress accessorized with Chopard jewelry.

It’s a teeny bit too tight on her, but other than that, this is a look worth bowing down to. We love the change in the neckline and the addition of sleeves. It’s a much more interesting dress this way. It’s also a dress that cries out for a necklace or pendant, which doesn’t always mean much with the red carpet crowd, who tend to follow the trend not to wear anything on or near the chest. Thank God Cate’s not a trend whore, because that pendant is CRAZY-FABULOUS. If we gave out prizes for accessories, that would win JEWELRY PIECE OF THE YEAR.

That really should be a prize. You should say it out loud the next time you put your favorite earrings on.

We do think the face and hair are just okay. We get why she wouldn’t want to take the focus away from that pendant, but there’s a disconnect between the breezy, clean head and the Liz-Taylor-level diamondry.
