If you're looking to see all of New York's finest fashionphiles in one place, a Woody Allen event is pretty much your best option — as we learned in the flesh last night at the premiere of his latest, Blue Jasmine. Jenna Lyons, Solange Knowles, Zosia Mamet, Ireland Baldwin, and many more all showed up dressed to the nines to the event sponsored by SK-II and Quintessentially Lifestyle at the MoMa's Titus I theater. And they looked great. But then, this weird, bright, shiny light appeared and nearly blinded us with its beauty. That light's name? Cate Blanchett.
We've gushed over her red-carpet style before, and this is no exception. The pale-pink Balenciaga number was all we needed to cheer up on a rainy Monday, and of course, she pulled off the difficult shape and delicate blend of textures like a pro. Andrew Dice Clay may have hoped to upstage her by showing up dressed as a crooked '70s police officer (no, it's not Halloween yet), but we only had eyes for Blanchett.
As for the film itself — well, it's definitely worth seeing for OG Allen fans and casual viewers alike. While the fast-paced banter is somewhat unusual for the normally cool, calm, and collected Ms. Blanchett, she takes to the role with ease. As per usual.
