Cate Blanchett Falls Short of Expectations at the 2015 Oscars

Cate Blanchett is a style queen when it comes to the film industry’s biggest events, and has raised her own bar very, very high. Because of that, we were a little underwhelmed to see such a minimal look from the red-carpet pro at the 87th Annual Academy Awards at the Hollywood & Highland Center tonight (ET).

That’s not to say we didn’t love the get-up, including a black high-neck Maison Margiela by John Galliano gown and a statement turquoise Tiffany & Co necklace, it’s just that we’ve gotten used to the wow-factor of her old-Hollywood elegance. It feels wrong to just give her a thumbs up, rather than bucketloads of praise.

We would’ve loved a bit more glamour from the Australian actress, whether it was embellishments, a floaty silhouette, or soft and polished waves. It also struck a bit of déjà vu, with Sofia Vergara repping a similar look at the 2014 Golden Globes.

John Galliano on Getting Used to Sobriety

John Galliano’s fall and return to the fashion industry has been well-documented, but today we get another view of what the designer has been up to recently. Vogue visited Galliano as he was putting together his first collection for Maison Margiela at the house’s studio in Paris. 

During the visit, the designer notes that this is the first time in a long while that he’s attempting to live life and design without being under the influence of substances. “It’s great just being alive again… and every experience is new,” the designer said. “I’ve never done this sober before. And I have to keep reminding myself that it’s actually quite normal. It’s actually quite nice, John.”

Galliano also mentions that he found solace in teaching during his absence from the design scene. Four students from Central Saint Martins insisted on being under the tutelage of Galliano for a special program. The next year, four more students, three of which currently work with the designer at Margiela, signed on to work with him, which Galliano says gave him a release. “[It] stopped me worrying and thinking about myself. That’s part of the reason that I started to do it when I was coming out into the real world. It was fun sharing, and it was fun to talk to them about Modigliani and Lartigue—blank! nothing!—and we’re learning so much from each other.”

All in all, it sounds like Galliano has finally regained his footing, and we can’t wait to see what he does for the house next.

Cass Bird Photographs Saskia de Brauw for Vogue Korea’s March Cover (Forum Buzz)

Magazines are pulling out all the stops for the big spring fashion issues, tapping A-list stars and the hottest models to grace their covers. Vogue Korea is taking its March issue in stride, however, giving us a laid-back cover shot by Cass Bird. Saskia de Brauw poses nonchalantly, looking as though she was interrupted while hanging out at the beach. The Karl Lagerfeld favorite sports an embellished jacket, swimsuit and a pair of white socks with sandals (yes, really).

Members of our forums were sure to voice their opinions inside the thread. “I like the colors, it feels really fresh and appropriate for spring,” KateTheGreatest shared, oozing a positive attitude toward the cover.

TeeVanity was also feeling it. “Always nice to see Saskia, pure simplicity,” he posted.

“Saskia and Cass Bird are both awesome. Can’t wait to see more,” anticipated oliverhm. Are we in for a home run?

“I’m actually really [looking] forward to see[ing] the editorial. Excited about the Cass Bird Saskia combo. I like the cover photo, not so much with that layout though,” mistress f added.

The discussion soon went downhill. “It’s so lifeless. And I don’t like Saskia styling in that way,” narcyza stated.

Forum member kokobombon disapproved, “I don’t like it, it looks too bare.”
