We here at Glamourtunist are of a charitable nature. Before you end up on the list of “Missed Glamourtunity” offenders we fire some warning shots. So, Cate Blanchett, Kerry Washington, and Gina Rodriguez … here is your warning and below are our reasons why.
These are three actresses I love, but who’s fashion needs to step it up. I say citations because the looks aren’t horrible, but because they are slipping from great in some cases and just are repeatedly boring in others. All three are talented, smart, and beautiful, but here is the issue. Cate Blanchett is usually winning in the red carpet but last night she showed up looking so damn basic in this black dress. Yes, the necklace is beautiful and the fit of the dress is impeccable, but you must give us more for fashion dear heart. Her stylists should have thought about how common this would look in photographs. The same for Gina Rodriguez, who is a repeat offender in a similar way. Her dresses always look beautiful, but they are doing nothing for fashion or for her lovely figure. Step it up! And Kerry Washington was also always a favorite in the red carpet, but the last few times at these big events she has left much to be desired. She was overheard on red carpet saying how she wanted it to be no fuss and easy. Sweety, this is the Oscars. Bring the fuss or stay home. She has so much more style than this.
