Fugger: Cate Blanchett

Fug or Fab: Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive


If you know me at all, you know that I totally wish I could use this fabric as wallpaper:

Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive

For, like, a dark and glamorous powder room, you know? With great retro tile and a dramatic light fixture, and very fluffy hand-towels, and an orchid next to the hand soap, and perhaps an enchanted mirror that tells your fortune while you wash your hands. (Note: I do not have a powder room of any sort, much less a magical one.) As a jumpsuit…I am somewhat less enamored.

Fug or Fab: Cate Blanchett in Givenchy


This SO MUCH BETTER than what she wore to the Tonys. It’s a bit wacky….but deliciously so.

Tony Awards Unfug It Up: Cate Blanchett in Louis Vuitton


We will be putting Cate’s carte blanchett to the test today, y’all, thanks to another one of Louis Vuitton’s hodgepodges.

Cate Blanchett

Once again, her face is magnificent. Cate Blanchett, it must be noted, is GREAT at the dark smoky eye with a lighter lip color, because she and her team always pick something that still makes it clear she HAS lips. It’s never consumptive.

But y’all, this dress is ghastly. Almost comically so. She’s playing that carte blanchett card as hard as she can, but she cannot convince me to like it. I’m simply not a fan of the drunkenly deconstructed looks LV has been putting out lately. This is like someone put a leather jacket in a blender with a halter dress and several things from LK Bennett. I do not care to drink that smoothie.

I want to delete the bra top — I want to delete it with GREAT PREJUDICE; if there were a keyboard button for it, I would dance around for a second and then smack it with a tremendous flourish — and then see if it’s possible to salvage the skirt idea by having it start at her waist. It might be that simple. It might be better used to line the bottom of a birdcage. Trying to fix this might be a fun project, though, so somebody with a better reconstructive eye than mine needs to weigh in here while I go practice with a kohl pencil.

Fugs and Fabs: Celebs at the Airport


As we head into Vacation Time, it seems wise to revisit the carry-on bags and airplane cardigans of a variety of celebrities, no?

WTF: Cate Blanchett in Louis Vuitton


I love the bob on her.

I am not as certain about the dress, which I assume was inspired by a dream the designer had about bees. The black patches being so high make it look like her boobs live in her collarbone.

Oscars Well Played, Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive


Cate was the person whose look I was most interested to see last night at the Oscars — even when I don’t like what she’s wearing, it’s never boring. That said, I loved this. WHAT A RELIEF.

Well Played: Cate Blanchett in Versace at the Costume Designers Guild Awards


This is so perfect and cool on her, it’s almost unfair to anyone else in the room.

I don’t know if the neckpiece is part of the neckline, or a brilliant add-on, but it is the perfect piece of flair for that slithery, slickery black gown. Insert all the usuals about how I am clearly not living my best life and need to liquefy all her movies and then drink them in a smoothie with lots of kale and a few tears from an innocent.
