Cate Blanchett Wears Odd Givenchy Space Gown To ‘Blue Jasmine’ UK Premiere

Cate Blanchett wore Givenchy Couture to the UK premiere of Blue Jasmine tonight, and I disliked it muchly.

What I did not dislike muchly was discovering a name like Tuppence Middleton, which combines one of my favorite British words with a very popular surname.

Middleton and Blanchett were joined by Richard E. Grant (he of Spice World fame, for our American readers) at the Odeon West End to check out Woody Allen’s latest movie.

Blanchett, who many hope will score an Oscar nod for her portrayal of a tragic socialite, spoke fondly of the director at tonight’s event.

“I think he absolutely loves women, in all their mad, complex, crazy, hilarious glory,” Blanchett said, according to the Daily Express. “And as a dramatist he’s created some of the most memorable female characters on screen.”
