Cate Blanchett attended the ‘Uncle Vanya’ cast photocall in New York City on Saturday afternoon.

The Australian actress donned a Givenchy Resort 2013 dress.

Cate can usually pull off trick pieces like this with total ease, but there is something about this look that isn’t quite working for me on this occasion.

The model worked this dress with a pencil skirt, flared elbow-length sleeves and a geometric bodice with a paisley printed scarf-like detailing to perfection.

Maybe it’s the addition of Cate’s overly fussy Roger Vivier ‘Cloud’ black lace-up open-toe booties which sent me over the edge.

A side-parted hairstyle and natural-looking makeup completed the look.
