And yes, I am taking about the extraordinary Givenchy Haute Couture dress she wore to the Oscars (deal with it, Jennifer). So this week, we’re taking a look at some of Cate Blanchett’s greatest red carpet successes. Whether elegant in a favorite like Armani, or stunning in Valentino, or unforgettable in McQueen, Blanchett always manages to keep it interesting. More »
