WDWT? Cate Blanchett In Givenchy!

WDWT - What Did We Think?

While watching the 2011 Oscars Red Carpet, I don't believe that I actually got this dress at the time.

I thought the color scheme was great and the construction from the front was very unique, but I maybe was too critical of the design as a whole.

If you take a look yourself, you can see that the design is definitely a work of art and should be respected as such.

After reading the Instyle article, I found out how Cate felt about the dress. "People get so worried about dressing for other people, but you've got to wear what you like," Blanchett told InStyle.

"If people get it, they get it. If they don't, then it doesn't matter. There are so few houses that can afford to do couture, and since the red carpet is such a wonderful showcase, we should be celebrating that."

I decided Cate's statement is a very good explanation for wearing the Givenchy dress to the Oscars and it definitely changed my perspective of the dress.

Dear Notable stylistas, when given a platform do something with it and don't be afraid to utilize it. If you can't express yourself with a couture gown like this during a time like the Oscars when can you do it?
