The Curious Case of Cate Blanchett and J Lo

By: Celebuzz / December 9, 2008

Given the mystical plot of David Fincher‘s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, there is no surprise something supernatural happened at Monday night’s Los Angeles premiere for the epic.

Thirty-nine-year-old Fashionista’s Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lopez seem to have magically swapped places.

Lopez, who has been on a slow climb reclaiming her body and career since the birth of adorable twins Max and Emme, has finally hit a red carpet stride. After a series of over-the-top misses, Lopez delivers the goods reminiscent of her glory days.

In a stunning white Roberto Cavalli Grecian-gown, Mrs. Marc Anthony showed a bust and body that no mother of twins should have, a gorgeous bright face and hair worthy of a true diva.

Blanchett, on the other hand, always the impossible combination of a fan and critic fave, confused viewers in a bell-shaped Alexander McQueen number complete with micro-metallic detail and matronly flesh-tone cropped leggings.

Where’s the accounting for the fashion Freaky Friday?

Perhaps Lopez is ready to reclaim her crown, and Blanchett is resting on her laurels?
