Cate Blanchett In Givenchy Couture - 'Blue Jasmine' London Premiere

Cate Blanchett attended the UK premiere of ‘Blue Jasmine’ held at the Odeon West End this evening in London.

As I hoped, the Australian actress did wear couture, selecting a look from Givenchy’s Fall 2012 collection, which was full of both drama and intrigue.

Her black cold-shoulder gown with a halter neckline, gold-embroidered details and cape back took a while to grow on me as my issue was – and still is – that it sits too low around the arms, rendering them useless.

But the gown is not supposed to be functional; it’s supposed to be a work of art, so on that basis you can’t help but be floored by it and admire how she manages to pull it off.
