Posted on March 02, 2015

Hmmm. This makes us a little sad.

As much as we dig the return of big-ass pendants to the red carpet, this is a rare Blanchett misstep. We imagine the thinking behind such a low-key indy-film-premiere kind of look was so she didn’t compete with her co-star’s exuberant (and for once, highly appropriate) princess gowns. But Cate, this Art School Professor Chic was not the way to go. Instead, you should’ve pulled out the full Effie Trinket for this one. Let Cinderella have the ball gowns. You should be in crazy couture and insanely dramatic pieces, of which you have an established talent wearing. We can understand not wanting to come across try-hard, because the press can be insanely unforgiving of a female celebrity having the nerve to age, but you went too far in the opposite direction. In your quest to avoid the try-hard label, you’ve landed on “gave up.”

We will call this a momentary bump in the road and expect you to dazzle us next time, dear.
