Cate Blanchett in Mary Katrantzou at the Golden Globes: alien-fug or alien-fab?

Nominee, Cate Blanchett, arrives at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA on Sunday, January 5, 2020.

I will forever stan Cate Blanchett’s style because I think she loves clothes and cares about fashion. She also has the kind of personality and look where she can pull off weird, unconventional stuff. But her Mary Katrantzou look at the Golden Globes was awful! It reminded me of one of those little dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, you remember them? I mean, she’s not the worst dressed! But this was a bad look. The boob cups and the sheer whatever – yikes.

Rooney Mara in Givenchy. She was just there as Joaquin Phoenix’s date, right? I don’t remember her presenting. Joaquin won and he couldn’t even really finish his thought when he said her name and it was very sweet. That being said, lord – she’s such an odd little goth wood sprite.

Rachel Bilson and Bill Hader made their red carpet couple debut. I guess it was sweet? I don’t know, I still haven’t figured it out. She wore Brock Collection – a bit twee.

Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach. I mean… it’s sort of funny that their films were almost entirely shut out? The only thing won between Marriage Story and Little Women was Best Supporting Actress for Laura Dern, who didn’t even deserve it!! Anyway, Greta has been wearing terrible stuff throughout Little Women’s promotion, but I didn’t hate this Proenza Schouler look.

    I don’t care for any of these dresses.
    Laura Dern’s award has to be a cumulative thing, her part in Little Women was so small. She was good, and the film was good, but for me the whole movie was Saoirse.

  2. Chaine says:

    TBH Cate’s whole look would improve with different hair and makeup. The hair reminds me of Something About Mary, very unfortunate, and her makeup is very kabuki.

  3. Sarah says:

    Greta’s dress reminded me of the Brenda/Kelly prom dress. That’s all I’ve got.

    • Nikki* says:

      The neckline white band looks like someone yanked her top down so she can be publicly whipped in Colonial times. It’s that bad: so unflattering!!

  4. Becks1 says:

    I…..don’t hate Cate’s look? I don’t love it, but something about it is intriguing to me and I don’t think its completely ugly. At first I did, but the more I look at it the more I’m like, “hmmm, there’s something about it….”

    • Lightpurple says:

      The back of it was very dramatic and fascinating. It seemed a throwback to the House of Worth style of the 1920s with all the pleating. It was a bold statement and would have worked with better hair and mo

      Without the alien bra thing going on it could’ve been an interestingly structured dress.

      These are all fails in my book. Ugh.. it was a really disappointing red carpet for the most part.

      Gotta say though, I DID love hearing Joaquin calling out the faux eco-warriors in the room, telling them to “maybe not fly private to Palm Springs” hahahahahaha!

    • Scal says:

      It was stunning when she was moving across the stage.

    • Nikki* says:

      She does take chances doesn’t she? I like her elegant, crazy flamboyance!

  5. BANANIE says:

    I died at the Jurassic Park comment! Greta’s styling is childish, and Rachel Bilson’s look is kind of fussy but I think it works on her.

  6. Eliza_ says:

    So many of the women had “vampire face” at the awards. Too light foundation, pink eyeshadow to look slightly sickly. Some paired with color-less lips and others strong lipstick but the effect was the same undead result.

    • Nikki* says:

      Tom Hanks’ wife Rita is such a gorgeous woman, but I thought she looked exhausted due to her very pale lip color. I agree w/you about so many “vampire faces” last night.

  7. Anne says:

    Cate looks like an intergalactic warrior. I like it. But I like all the space looks.

  8. ooshpick says:

    I thought Laura Dern killed it in Marriage Story. She’s a fine actress.

  9. A says:

    I love Cate’s dress. That colour and pattern looks gorgeous, one of my top five looks from last night.

  10. Lily says:

    Don’t know why but I’m rooting for Bill and Rachel.

    I love the length of her hair

  11. Elaine Stritch says:

    Greta Gerwig is a consistent fashion miss IMHO- I think she tries, she just never gets it right- but she’s a bit of a BEC for me so I might be biased. It’s been an interesting season watching the opinions shift of her from her Lady Bird days- I have no theory about it, just an observation…

  12. Jerusha says:

    Did anyone else see Where’d You Go, Bernadette? The performances were so, so good. I would have been happy to see Emma Nelson, Billy Crudup and Kristen Wiig nominated as well as Cate.

    • Mee says:

      I saw Where…Bernadette, I thought it was ok. I absolutely forgot about it 2 minutes later. It didn’t stay with me as some of her performances does. Parasite on the other hand, I couldn’t stop talking about for 2 weeks

  13. JanetFerber says:

    Cate’s dress would be fabulous if Tilda Swinton were wearing it. Tilda would have killed it with her other-worldly, superbeing look. Not for Cate though.
