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.
