Cate Blanchett Vexes Us in Preen at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva

Posted on January 17, 2018

We may just have broken our record for length of time staring at a lady’s chest. To be fair, it wasn’t much of a record to begin with. Also: we feel like we have a good excuse; namely, our intenze puzzlement as to why anyone would ruin such a perfectly good dress by slapping a jellyfish on it.

But what we had assumed was some random bit of whimsy on the front of her dress was, in fact, a random swatch of lace, haphazardly stapled to it, no doubt by some vandal with malicious intent. Because truly, no designer would just slap some sad-looking lace swatch on the front of a dress, would they?

Seriously, is that not the weirdest design element you’ve seen in a long time? It’s distracting to the point of irritation. We get that Miss Cate likes to pick edgy and weird things just to see if she can make them work, so we can see why she’d have chosen it. But Miss Lady, we got news for you: it’s still pretty weird looking.

And is she wearing boots with this? How odd.
