Well Played: Cate Blanchett Makes Weird Look Wonderful

Cate Blanchett sure ain’t afraid of no freaky fashion, but what’s really almost miraculous about it is that, even at her strangest, the esteemed actress is very rarely a sartorial flop. This Balenciaga cape-over-frock look, for example? My initial reaction is to be like, “god, that’s weird,” but the longer I look at it, the more I’m convinced that Cate can take even the weirdest silhouette and turn it into something really, really convincing.
