Fugger: Cate Blanchett

Recent Fugs and Fines: Cate Blanchett

It is so glorious to be back in a place where Cate Blanchett leaves the house at least once a day.

Fug or Fab: Cate Blanchett in Lanvin

You can imagine my reaction when I saw this look of Cate’s in thumbnail. Please bear in mind that I am on painkillers right now:


Reader, I screamed. “CATE BLANCHETT, ARE WE GOING TO SEE YOUR BUTTCRACK?” I would have clutched my pearls if I were wearing any. Instead, I clawed at my pajama top with such existential dismay that a button popped off and flew across the bedroom, landing in a pile of laundry. Then I started wondering, “Wait. Am I hallucinating? I am on drugs right now. Can someone call Courtney Love for me and ask if this is right?” (No disrespect to Courtney Love; I truly believe that if you are friends with her, and you have questions about how certain drugs work, you could call her and she would totally tell you.) And Courtney Love would have yelled at me to get a grip, because we are never going to see Cate Blanchett’s buttcrack on the red carpet. It’s all an illusion.


She needs jewelry, but from the front, I think it’s great. 150% less terrifying, which is all you can really ask for.

Fug or Fab: Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive

I don’t know. My brain isn’t that offended by this…

… but Fiery Hand of Ouchy Fire is feeling super cranky right now, as if I just cupped the sun, and so THAT makes me want to crab about the pants. Do they seem a little dowdy to you? If you are going to wear velvet pants, they had better be the hippest, most precise, coolest tailoring imaginable or else you end up looking like a model in a dying, outmoded catalog.

Well Played, and Fug or Fab: Cate Blanchett in Schiaparelli Couture & Alexander McQueen

Cate Blanchett is REALLY into elaborate bodice detailing right now, you guys.

Surprisingly Fab, then WTF: Cate Blanchett in Esteban Cortezar and Givenchy

Three guesses as to which designer — Cortezar or Givenchy — made the WTF outfit. You’ll only need one.

Fugs and Fabs: People Wearing Stuff to the Airport

Because we cannot get enough of seeing what other people chose to put on their bodies before getting on a plane. (In one of these, Rihanna is toting her own sleeping bag, I think. Rihanna appears to be a woman who is committed to REALLY SLEEPING while in transit, which I respect.)

Fug or Fab: Cate Blanchett in AOUADI

In case you ever stared out your office window wistfully and wondered, “How would Cate Blanchett look if she had, like, a lot of tattoos?”

53rd New York Film Festival - "Carol"

To me, the answer is, “kinda cool, and honestly I’m way more worried about her boob popping out here than anything else.” Your mileage may vary.
