The best fashion moment of last year’s Oscars, and maybe the best fashion moment of the year, was when Cate Blanchett showed up on the red carpet in Givenchy. The fashion bloggers went into esoteric hysterics. It was a bold move done with quiet conifedience. She wore this beautifully strange (and strangely beautiful) gown with patrician assurance, daring, just daring all those lowlifes who scuttle about on the sides of the red carpet to say something negative about it. Not that she’s tuned into that low of a frequency anyways.
