What to Wear ...

on the Red Carpet, when you've finally decided that you're fed up with the whole vanity and vapidity thing, the inane worship of celebrity? Stylists be damned - didn't Meryl Streep claim she purchased the little black dress she wore to the Oscars on one occasion, back in the 1980s, right off a sales rack in a department store?

So, what to wear? This:
Doesn't Cate Blanchett's get-up look as though it has been crafted from a re-purposed, vintage afghan? How totally environmentally AND politically relevant. How cheerfully irreverent! Look at the smile on her face - she is having a good time with this fashion "faut-pas". As in: Il ne faut pas ...

By the way, we have written about fashion before. Here.

That is one weird-ass dress. But yeah, she looks like she's having fun wearing it.

I remember a line from an old detective novel -- might have been Dashiell Hammett -- detective notes that someone seems to have taken particular offense at his shoes. 'Good', he thinks, 'That's what shoes are for.'

If it had another sleeve, I would wear it. Looks warm and comfy.

Yes. The 'toga style' doesn't quite work with the granny-quilt patches.

OMG! A granny-squares dress! How cool is that? She definitely has ovaries! I love the trim.

I hope that's lined. Large crochet granny squares tend to expose more skin than one might think.
