Cate Blanchett in peacocky Gucci at the Spirit Awards: cute or crazy?


I feel like Cate Blanchett’s Independent Spirit Awards look bodes well for the Oscars. This Gucci makes it seem like she’s in a playful, fun mood. And why wouldn’t she be? She’s got two Oscars, she knows she’s not going to win this year and she can just go and have fun. So why not have a great time and wear this crazy Gucci gown to the Spirits? Right? I mean, I would LOATHE this on anyone else. But on Cate, it almost looks elegant instead of cuckoo-bird cray-cray. Speaking of birds… yes, that is a very fancy peacock on her dress. SO FANCY.



Cate was also in on the joke when the Spirit Awards hosts – Kate McKinnon & Kumail Nanjiani – did an absolutely amazing spoof of Carol. After this bit aired, Cate was seen crying from laughter, she thought it was so funny. “Clandestine glove lunch” is the new thing. It’s a seduction!

As for Cate’s partner-on-crime, Rooney Mara, she wore Hugo Boss. And she looked like a sad mime. No no no! I actually think this Hugo Boss dress is totally fine, albeit slightly boring. At least it wasn’t another f—king nude gown! What’s tragic here is her hair. Ugh, so dour.

    It’s Rooney’s expression that makes everything so joyless; a great smile would’ve made this outfit+hair+makeup just fine. I don’t understand; maybe that’s just her natural expression, maybe she’s in chronic pain from the sadness of living…? I worry about her.

    I do LOVE Cate’s dress. Lovely, and such a playful and happy attitude!

    I love it too. She looks great.

  4. Kristen says:

    Cate is gorgeous and the peacock dress is amazing. How do I get my skin/makeup to look like hers?!?

    I love the print but the nude dress color is throwing me off. I think black or dark blue or green would look so much better.

    Rooney’s hair…wtf?!

    I love bith dresses. I’m in the minortiy, but I love Ronney’s style, severe hairstayles and all. At least she’s got a look and usually looks interesting. Most young actresses dress so boring.

    • Rhonda says:

      I agree! I don’t think everyone needs to smile all the time. People only say that to women, imo. They both look gorgeous and interesting.

  7. Moo says:

    I love it! Rooney would benefit from being a little more adventurous, just my two penn’orth.

  8. Minxx says:

    Cate’s dress is too much, IMO, though she’s pulling it off. Rooney should stop wearing black or white all the time, she needs color. She’d look amazing in red.

  9. Lindy says:

    I love the peacock dress! It’s so different without being try-hard (though perhaps it would be on another actress). The second picture where she’s smiling is really delightful.

    The dress is crazy, but so Cate. She pulls it off fantastically.
    I kind of like Rooney’s dress, but she has so little presence it seems kind of drab.

  11. manda says:

    I adore kumail nanjiani!

    I would like the peacock dress better if it weren’t on flesh toned material.

  12. Jayna says:

    I don’t like the gown. And I don’t know how it works on her, but it does. She wears clothes so effortlessly, and she is so photogenic. Someone else would have worn that dress and it would have been wearing them. Not Cate.

  13. Tig says:

    Watched the Spirit Awards- and Cate and Rooney presented. They were fun together, and Rooney looked like she was having fun- what a difference! I liked the dress, but not the hair.

    Loved Cate’s dress! Wouldn’t surprise me to see a variation at the Met Ball.

    OT-loved what Jessica Chastain wore! Hope it gets a post soon!

  14. LadyElenor says:

    that Carol spoof was insanely funny!!!!!

  15. Josefina says:

    It’s both crazy and cute. I love it!

  16. felixswan2 says:

    I actually really like both dresses. They also have gorgeous skin. I’m confused by Rooney’s hairstyle…are those bangs?

  17. sauvage says:

    I think Cate Blanchett’s dress is absolutely fabulous. I want it for myself!

  18. A Fan says:

    Cate Blanchett’s dress was unique; definitely her taste. The colour, however, was not good – too pale and washed out for her skin/hair.

    [*Peacock Blue perhaps?*]

  19. kri says:

    amazing embroidery work on that. Stunning.

  20. Ally8 says:

    Cate’s dress looks less Gucci and more Ed Hardy.

  21. 11bd says:

    Please Rooney Mara never smiles. I love to read how pissed off everyone on Celebitchy is when you don’t smiles on the pictures they see.

  22. Deevia says:

    Dear Cate: What the actuall h3ll?

  23. What's inside says:

    Nope. She’s great. The dress not so much.

    I clicked the title ready to come in here and go to bat for Cate because i love her, but, girl. No.
