Celebrity Style on Trial: Cate Blanchett’s questionable shiny Giorgio Armani Prive suit

Cate Blanchett always pushes the envelope when it comes to red carpet fashion, but we wonder if she pushed it a bit too far at the Tony Awards. The super shiny, super tight Giorgio Armani Prive pantsuit gives off a cartoonishly futuristic vibe. Especially when worn with pointy white satin platforms and nothing underneath the blazer but a statement necklace. Perhaps the jacket mixed with other pieces would work, but it’s all too matchy matchy for our taste. We hate to accuse Blanchett of a fashion crime, but everyone gets a citation once in a while. What do you think?

    It is really cool fabric and the jacket with something else would of looked better, but the look is too matchy matchy. I think the fabric would look great as a dress!

    I think Cate Blanchett has a way of making her style stand out without being looking too much like an attention-seeker (all the Gagas out there, listen to this). THis looks amazing. The fabric goes well with her choice of shoes and even though I agree it’s a bit too matchy matchy, it still works.

    Nope, it doesn’t work. I’ve seen this elsewhere already and people are mostly defending it on the grounds of “but… It’s Cate Blanchett”. Sure, I love Cate, and sure, her style is almost always impeccable, but hey, everyone makes mistakes sometimes, even the mighty Blanchett.

      well I guess it’s a matter of taste. I think it looks good and different.

    Dressed like this, she should have gone to a Star Trek audition.

    It’s too small, too. (At least the jacket.) I can see her bare stomach, and that’s just not good.

    It would have been cool if the pants were a mini skirt and the top fit a bit better. and…change the shoes.

    Personally I don’t like the suit. But Cate Blanchett pulled this suit gorgeously : )

    The jacket is fine but the fabric just doesn’twork as trousers! Could have been a little A line skirt or maxi.

    In a darker and less shiny solid-color fabric, I think this outfit would be totally hot (on the red carpet- can’t really picture people wearing a suit jacket with nothing under it out in the real world), however the color and sheen of the suit really cheapens what could be a really sexy, understated and different look. Maybe soften up those shoulder pads, too…

    The jacket, the shoes and a nice, black skirt – I would love it. But that way it looks too much like bad science fiction.

    She looks like a lightning themed superhero from the 80’s.

    Personally I don’t like it but Cate has the figure and colouring to pull it off.
