Cate Blanchett Bared Her Shoulders in Couture


At the U.K. premiere of Blue Jasmine, the Australian actress whipped out another bold gown for her red-carpet rounds. It even doubled as a glittery off-the-shoulder capelet. She wore her blonde locks slicked behind her ears and allowed the intricate black look from Givenchy's fall 2012 couture collection, complete with a halter neckline, to speak for itself. Though she looked like a royal in this outfit — or perhaps, even, an elegant witch headed to a ball — she would not even be able to lift her arms to give a regal princess wave, given the gown's unique constrictions. The ultimate sacrifice for fashion.
