And lo and behold, Cate Blanchett will wear it.




It’s been nearly 24 hours and I’m still trying to work out if I like this dress or not. What do you guys think? At the very least kudos to her for wearing one of the very few interesting dresses on display last night.

    I didn’t see the back last night so the yellow on the front made no sense to me. Now that I see the back, the dress still makes no sense to me. I think I like it though, and the color is excellent on Cate.

    oh, i have to admit, i am completely in love with this dress especially on cate. she’s such a goddess. i thought she looked stunning.
    on the other hand, if i wore this dress, i’d look like i had a disease.
