Cate Blanchett's "Dress" Is Actually a 2-Piece Outfit, and We're in Love With the Rainbow Skirt
It's not surprising to see some of the year's most stunning dresses at the Cannes Film Festival, but some of them make you audibly say, "Wow." Case in point: Cate Blanchett's Givenchy Haute Couture outfit designed by Clare Waight Keller, which is one of the most eye-catching looks we've seen on the red carpet yet this year. The actress wore the intricate rainbow piece to the BlacKkKlansman premiere on May 14, and she definitely commanded every eye in the vicinity.
The real kicker, though, is it's actually not a dress — it's a top and a skirt! Consider us even more smitten with the look given the fact that it's a knitted silk black top tightly tucked into a hand-painted, pleated organza skirt. The two pieces seamlessly combine to mimic the appearance of a dress thanks to a black velvet belt, and Cate's light blue suede platform sandals tie it all together. Oh, and did we mention the top is backless and it photographs even more beautifully from behind? Take a look at Cate's impeccable outfit from all angles, then see everything else she wore at Cannes.
