Cate Blanchett was on hand to help Louis Vuitton open a new boutique in Sydney, Australia earlier today.

The talented actress and object of my affection wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 dress.

As much as I want to say I love this look, I just can’t.

Like Dita von Teese, Cate’s lip colour prevents her from being washed out by this white embroidered dress with a sheer overlay, but the dress itself is the issue.

The high neckline on the overlay bothers me. It feels like they forgot to cut the ‘V’ into it.

I don’t think this look is doing anything for her.

There are so many other looks I would’ve preferred from this collection for Cate. This would’ve been the last, behind the argyle romper – I kid.

White Louis Vuitton ‘Merry Go Round’ pumps, as worn by SJP earlier this week, complete her look.

Love or loathe?
