Ah, yes. She’s entered the priesthood of the Church of Pope Tilda. We expected this. We also fully support it. Go forth and spread the good news of fabulosity, Cate. Pope Tilda’s got your back.

Seriously, we dig this. We could’ve done without the ruffled white bands on the skirt, but we love the one that encircles the sleeves and continues into the back of the dress. It’s dramatic as hell.

And drama definitely seems to be on the menu for Cate’s latest poledance. She’s been picking outfits that are interesting over outfits that are merely pretty, and while the results have been spotty, we can’t help but appreciate the attempts.

 

Cate Blanchett attends The Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences New Members Reception at the American Ambassadors Residence, Winfield House, Regents Park in London, England in Proenza Schouler.

Like so. An attempt to be just a little different; to work outside the restrictive red carpet norms of “princess gown” or “cocktail dress.” Do we love this? Well, actually, yeah. We think we do. We admit the shape of the top is weird; both the exposed skin parts and the SUPER-fussy sleeves. But she has that Tilda-like ability to take strange garments and make them work (or nearly, in this case). Again, we can see some issues with a look like this, but we can’t bring ourselves to come down too hard on it because it’s so unique.
