Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive
go-fug
    It's not un-pretty, and it's occasion-appropatie, but it's also just... nude and be-spangled. Like so many other things. It's Taylor Swift. It's Kate Mara. It's Kristen Wiig. (Or a loose version of a Britney or J.Lo catsuit.) And somehow the ubiquity of that style makes it banal, even if gleamingly, glitzily so, and Cate Blanchett and "banal" don't compute together. She elevates it, but... let's own what's really going on here: We're dealing with one blogger and her dashed hopes of having something really offbeat come out and surprise me with how much I liked it -- or something HEINOUS that delighted me with its crapwittery.
