Cate Blanchett wore a dress from Givenchy's resort 2013 collection to the Uncle Vanya photo call in New York City on Saturday afternoon. She accessorized with Roger Vivier lace-up booties.

What do you think of the paisley fabric on the left side of Cate's dress? Is it distracting? Or an interesting break from the black and white?
