The Oscars peaked when Cate Blanchett appeared

Cate Blanchett arrived at the Oscars with — almost inarguably — the dress of the night. Enjoy it here.


Here's what she is transmitting in just this photo.

1. “This was a plain dress twenty minutes ago but I used method acting to make a beautiful garden appear.”

2. “I have swan DNA.”

3. “I'm a more aerodynamic Katharine Hepburn.”

4. “I'm a slightly unsharpened Tilda Swinton and you should fear me for it.”

5. “Every facial expression I have is devastating, including this one.”

Thank you, Cate. Just thank you.
