TÁR Star Cate Blanchett in Sportmax at the Writers Guild of America Awards

Posted on March 07, 2023

In her quest to hit every red carpet in the western hemisphere this month, hard-campaigning actress Cate Blanchett showed up at the Writers Guild Awards in – get this – a new dress!


We have concerns. We almost typed “We have issues,” but that probably goes without saying at this point. Good Lady Cate has spent most of awards season rewearing things she wore in past awards seasons, but for the WGA Awards, she broke out this fresh-from-the-look book frock. We don’t think the WGA Awards necessarily call for a lot of high-end attention-seeking fashion. We wouldn’t, for instance, recommend that a star show up dripping in borrowed jewels, for instance. We can certainly understand why Cate would want to keep things toned down, but she looks like she’s about to be baptized into a cult. This dress would probably look great in an editorial on a model, but on anyone who has to walk and move through the world, it’s going to look awkward. We also don’t like the color and don’t think the boots go with it at all.
