Let’s work from right to left. First, Natalie Portman looks amazing at the West Coast premiere of The Darjeeling Limited in Beverly Hills, CA. How would you describe the color of her satin dress? Tomato red? Burnt orange? Whatever it is, we’re digging it. Her tiny frame is perfectly suited for pulling off this layered ruffle. It’s a definite red carpet risk, but she doesn’t look like she’s trying too hard due to the outfit’s simple black accessories and her ever-confident smile.
In the middle, we have Fearne Cotton at the London premiere of Stardust. To be honest, we actually aren’t too familiar with Fearne, but those turquoise shoes grabbed our attention straight away. Fearne chose bold colors, but they’re colors that work together and so, altogether, the outfit works. It’s young and fun, and those shoes are 100% unique, but there’s certainly nothing classic about this look.
And now Cate Blanchett… Cate is usually impeccable on the red carpet, but at the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie, Elizabeth The Golden Age, she turned up wearing a 4-person turquoise tent. Huh? Cate’s turquoise “dress” confused us as much as Fearne’s turquoise heels, but not in a happy surprise kind of way. No, it’s more of a ‘how could you do it?’ kind of way. We don’t get it. We don’t like it. It hurts our eyes.
