Y’know? You rarely see the ladies working a good, strong stripe on the red carpet. You’d think they’d be as ubiquitous as florals, but they can go wrong a lot more easily in a picture-taking situation, we suppose.
Fortunately, Miss Cate is not a lady who gets it wrong on the regular.
She’s working those stripes like a champ.
The addition of the belt completely alters the look from the runway version (and explains why that area just below it tends to look a little unresolved or haphazard to our eyes). It’s definitely a more workable way of wearing it off the runway, though. We think we’d have liked this better if she’d worn the blue version. All of these are minor quibbles, however. We love the dress and love the way she’s wearing it. Our only hard no is on the footwear choice, which is way too matchy and on-point.
