RED CARPET SHOWDOWN OF THE WEEK: Cate Blanchett vs. Zazie Beetz

Posted on September 06, 2019

Hooray, Kittens! Hooray, we say! Why? Because our long national nightmare is over. The Fashion Drought of Summer ’19 has officially come to an end because for the first time in MONTHS, we have a could of looks so eye-poppingly fabulous that we have no choice but to submit them to a cage match-style vote! Brace yourselves for the different flavors of fierceness to come, darlings.

 

 

 

Lo’s Pick: Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé at the “Joker” Premiere at the Venice Film Festival

Lo’s Defense: The thing about Cate is that she can do a classically elegant look like this, bring in a few twists, and have it all come off completely effortless. She chooses styles that call for a minute or two of consideration, which is how you know she’s a true fashionista. It’s all in the details, from the pearl beading to the cameo earrings to the dramatic shape. Just flawless. 

 

 

T’s Pick: Zazie Beetz in Valentino Couture at the “Joker” Premiere at the Venice Film Festival

T’s Defense: Consider this the argument for the opposite of classic elegance. Consider this the argument for boldness, newness, and attitude. That dress is entirely too much, which makes her perfect for it. From the exuberant shape to the brilliant colors, from the hoops to the shades to the fabulous head of hair, girlfriend is serving a capital-L LOOK in a way no one but she could pull off. 

 

There you have it, darlings. A choice for the ages! Which one’s it gonna be, Classic or Fresh?
