Vote! Is Cate's Look a Hit or Miss?

12/21/2006 at 03:20 PM ET

We’ve been keeping a close watch on the lovely Cate Blanchett and all her various outings lately. As we mentioned before, she’s one of our favorite award season dressers. Just look at her in this sleek Armani pantsuit! Matched with Louboutin pumps and a spritzed-up do, we think she’s a vision of holiday chicness. Popsugar is wondering if she took a page from Gwen Stefani’s stylebook with those big bangs. What do you think of this look?

Click through to this week’s Hit or Miss Gallery to vote on Cate’s outfit, as well as recent looks of Drew Barrymore, Fergie and more!

Definitely a miss. The color does not complement her pale skin in the least.

MAJOR MISS! This look is sick! She is shiny,and the whole outfit looks like it is too small! Yuck! p.s. get a tan!

Ashley on

She looks like she just stepped out of a Star Wars movie.

Amber on

It’s a HIT :)!!! I think she looks very elegant and sophisticated.

Lesley on

Blecch. I’ve seen her look so much better…she just looks pale, washed out, and sick in this outfit. Color please.

Some people really need a mirror at home.

I Love it. It’s very sophisticated along with chic and it’s twist from the formal dress. I normally woullnd’t pick that out myself but she really pulls it off.

jenna on

she’s stunning. she’s a risk taker always chic. i love cate!

Samantha Brewer on

Although I love Cate Blanchet, I absolutley hate this outfit. She sort of looks like an astronaut or something out of star trek.

Jen on

I think the outfit isn’t that bad, but her hair has got to go.

Elda on

Like the outfit but the hair due has got to go!!

Jeri Blackford on

I’m sorry, but she looks like a VERY bad “B” movie with a space theme actress!

Melissa on

Defiantly a miss. The suit is ill fitted. The color makes her look deafly pale and her hair looks like they put the whole bottle of hair jell in it and just brushed it up at the front.

Candi on

Ewww… She looks like a washed out space cadet!!! A little sun wouldn’t do her ANY harm.

Dimmu on

She looks like a Pixie in foil. Her hair is disgusting.

Mrs.Borrego on

I like her outfit. I just wish she would of picked a different color. As for her hair…don’t really like it much. I don’t like her shoes either. She should of worn a shirt under her blazer.

wildflower on

It is so far a miss the target is even out of the picture.

laney on

eeewww!!! a definet miss! She does not completly fill out the shirt! She looks like the tin-foil man off of the movie the Wizard of Oz!!!Ever heard of a tanning bed???

Haley on

Ewwwww!!! She looks like a freaking ghost!

miranda w. on

gross! MISS!! she looks like Neal Armstrong. she is WAY TO SKINNY for that low-cut shirt! has she EVER seen tha sun? and tha hair…. it looks like she juss woke up, and didn’t have time to fix it!

katie on

I’m not diggin’ the hair, the shoes, or the outfit, so I’d have to say it’s a big miss.

jessica on

obviously a miss

Heather on

Wow, Cate is usually spot on, even with edgy clothing. She could have done the suit with softer hair, but the hairstyle makes her features look to sharp. You would almost expect her to be carved out of very very shiny ice!

Danielle on

Cate Blanchett is such a beautiful woman, but I believe this is not one of her finest fashion choices. Not that it’s the worst outfit ever, it just not display her ethreal quality she so often has!

santa baby on

Total miss ! What was she thinking? Does she have a mirror?

stellar ! on

I think it’s totally awful !
Gotta shinding, when I’m lookin at her xD

Becky on

I agree the colr is not good for her. she is too pale for that color especially with the light hair. but that suit is gorgeuos. simple and elegant I love the pin that is used as a button. very tasteful

Rebecca on

This is not one of Cate’s better looks, but it’s not a total failure. The jacket is elegant, the pants kind of a funny cut, but the hairstyle is truly awful!

Heather Seymer on

She looks a hot mess 4 real…

Frab on

Yeah, it’s a miss- but she’s allowed to make some mistakes. She still rocks!

Michele on

AWFUL!!!! she looks completely washed out!! and a little too metallic

Kiki on

This is such a weird look for Cate. And what is with the hair? Yuck.

Karen Tulk on

She looks like a silver candle that is lit. You would think with the amount of money she has, she’d afford to hire a style consultant or buy some food.

Allison on

I think the cut and style of the suit is wonderful… the color? Not so much.

Tara on

Oh, I absolutely love it. It is very modern, and I love the little bit of color on the jacket! Gorgeous

Branna on

Wow….I dont like this look at all. It looks like she made it out of foil, I hope she didnt pay too much for that. And she is so pale that it kinda sets that of as well. I dont like it.

Courtney on

The outfit is okay. I don’t care for her hair like that though.

Courtney on

the clothes are ok. i dont like her hair like that though.

julie on

looks ugly on her, but i would wear it.

lacy on

i think she looks like a robot, and her hair i sjust plain stupid, she’s a pretty person tho

Brittany. on

shoot me…. NOW. omg. thats HORRIBLE!!!

Lisa Bonanno on

She is so beautiful! What was she thinking! She looks like she is about to take off into space!

Nunya on

I am from the future. I am here to warn you that in the future we all dress like this.

Maureen Olsen on

As a fellow Aussie, I love her look. Not for everyone, but for gutsy Cate it is definitely a yes

Hannah on

LOL, she looks like she’s about to join the crew of Star Trek!!! Beam me up, Scotty!

alex on

omg! she looks like the robot off “The Wizard of Oz” never ware that unless your staring 4 a comedy show

ruben on

whatwas she thinkin this outfit looks like she put it togther in five minutes!

angela on


Wow, she definitely looks like she stepped out of a Star Trek TV show or something…

steph on

i would like the top with maybe plain black pants.
or a cute skirt.
but it’s too much grey and shine.
in my opinion


luara on

hey i would NEVER want to wear a thing like that but if it expresses who u r then wear wat ever u want!!!!!! :P

Lisa on

Wow, people are harsh. I can see her mindset behind this outfit, her ingenuity. But I think she got too bogged down in details and the idea of the look, and lost the big picture. It’s anything but complimentary, and while her class and independent spirit shine in her eyes, the outfit is a big eyesore miss.
