Cate is often the equivalent of elegance personified on the red carpet, pulling off ensembles that most celebs wouldn’t even dare to try on. The actress is human, however, so even she occasionally experiences a slight misstep. Her appearance at the Blue Jasmine premiere over the weekend during the 2013 Deauville American Film Festival in France has us contemplating if this was one of those rare faux pas moments. Cate’s Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture black sleeveless gown featured colorful embroidered accents, which some have compared to an old quilt or patches off a Girl Scouts uniform. There’s also the issue of the length of this couture creation with the extended hemline only serving to create an exaggerated silhouette.
The star’s presence almost makes this look work, but we can’t decide if this should go in her “hit” or “miss” column. What do you think of Cate’s grand gown?
