Look what Cate Blanchett wore to the opening of a thing down at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) at Federation Square today!
It's a crochet dress! It looks like she's taken her nanna blanket and had it specially made into couture!
My word, if I ever needed any more proof that craft is the new cool, this is most definitely it. A crochet dress. A one-shouldered, full sleeved, ruffle-ornamented crochet dress. Worn without any sense of irony at all. Seriously, Cate Blanchett must be the only person in the world who could wear a nanna blanket and look good in it. And doesn't she? I especially like the double ruffle layer at the bottom.
Crochet couture. What boundaries will craft push next??
