Even Cate Blanchett Has a Miss Now And Then

11/09/2006 at 03:00 PM ET

We always think of Cate Blanchett as being an incredibly stylish woman; one of the rare stars who can push the edges of fashion and still look classic. But seems like even Cate has bad days. Attending a screening of her new film Babel (which already has major Oscar buzz) in her native Australia, Cate combined a cropped pantsuit with a red sweater and boots for a look that falls short of her usual impeccable standards. (We much prefer her in this fabulous silver Ralph Lauren gown). Sorry, Cate. We’re not digging the pantsuit.

Cate is dressed for a Halloween custome party; it is the only logical explanation for such horrible outfit.

Kristin on

At least the boots are cute…

Brandy on

Apart from the creepy boots, a cute and kitschy choice.

Iskrenie on

Who cares how Cate dresses. She’s classic Hollywood. She’s a woman of natural beauty and talent.

Haley on

YIKES!! Could have been a good thing, but definitely too much going on there.

sharon on

Boots are cool but not with the hideous outfit.

Chris Kragh on

Not something I would choose for her but really….Cate could wear a burlap sack and still sleek sleek, elegant and beutiful.

Dra on

I think it very fashion forward. It is an old style mixed with a new breath. I think it looks cute.

CC on

She looks good to me. It’s an unusual ensemble but she pulls it off with panache. Very reminiscent of Katharine Hepburn. At least she doesn’t look like all the clone-like starlets out there who wear the exact same thing.

Could have been better. I agree, Kate usually looks fabulous, but this…needs a little more work. I do adore the boots though, but maybe with something else.
