Cate Blanchett's tiered-dress by Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga makes the Rumpelstiltskin myth of spinning hay into gold a glorious, glowing reality. Chic, modern, fashion-forward: Blanchett would have made the event's posthumous honoree Paul Poiret proud. Beautiful.
I had to laugh. Cate Blanchett's looking a little "posthumous" herself!
