Cate Blanchett’s awesome crocheted dress

September 18, 2009

The biggest celebrity-related fibre story of the week is probably Cate Blanchett stepping out in a granny-square-style crochet dress at the opening of the Screen Worlds exhibition in Melbourne yesterday.

Although she’s been blasted by news and fashion commentators for wearing something ‘better suited to a granny’s sofa’, I think it’s fantastic! Good on Cate for being confident and daring enough to wear something a little different, and for supporting local designers. This dress was created by Romance was Born, and I love how it manages to combine elements of both quirky vintage and feminine charm. And Cate, as ever, looks just gorgeous in it.
