Cate Blanchett’s Working Woman Style

Posted on August 13, 2014

The world of celebrity style is a vast wasteland this week, darlings. No one’s stepping out except the kinds of stars that tend to inspire responses of “Who?” And if it’s not that, it’s A-listers going out in something boring or not worth critiquing.

Cate? That’s your cue to prove us wrong.

This is striking a pretty decent balance for what she has to do here. She’s an Academy Award winning movie star on Broadway, which means her every movement to and from the theater will be documented. To be honest, we think that must suck for her, but dammit, she had to go and put the effort in and that’s like dangling a carrot in front of a couple of starving rabbits.

We tend to think that, even though this was put together because of the likelihood of it being photographed, this probably looks better and more striking in person. In these flatly lit twilight shots, it all looks just a bit too busy. Those sandals and those shades are pretty focus-pulling, after all. And it’s not like the dress needed any help in order to make a statement. Plus the bag doesn’t go at all. But she’s a working woman who is literally on her way onto the job site. On that level, it’s great street style.
