BAFTA Awards 2019: Cate Blanchett in Christopher Kane

Posted on February 11, 2019

We were so taken by Good Lady Cate’s breastjewels that it was actually several minutes before we even noticed she’d gone brunette. We’ll get to that in a second. First, we have a pressing question.




If you match up three of the breastjewels, does her dress disappear?


It’s an okay look, which feels like a bit of a disappointing thing to say about a Good Lady Cate ensemble. The dress is exceedingly plain except for that one fairly overwhelming feature. Does a spray of fake gemstones over a the simplest of frocks make for a chic look? We’re gonna lean towards “No” on that one. We want to say that this dress needs something more, but that’s not quite it. It’s got a lot. It’s just that it’s all concentrated on one element. We guess in the end we find the design more than a bit unbalanced. And this is probably a weird thing to focus on, but the black pumps feel like she gave up on trying to make this look more interesting.

We assume the hair’s for a role. It’s a great shade for her, but we think the blonde suits her better.
