Let’s face it: this would look like a pile of laundry on anyone else.
Cate Blanchett attends the 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, California in a Chloé ensemble paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and gold flat sandals.
If it works at all – and to be honest, we’re not sure it does – it’s because of the Power of Cate. We suppose this is meant to look ethereal and floaty, but it just looks heavy to us. Almost… damp, somehow. The skirt’s got potential but that top can’t be seen as anything but dowdy to us. Thankfully, Cate doesn’t rely solely on the dress to make her look good. She’s always been pretty great about accessorizing and she’s no less impressive here. Both the sandals and the earrings are gorgeous. They’d be perfect for the kind of dress this dress is trying to be.
Did that make sense?
