Beauty is pain!
From an awe-inspiring cape to a sleek LBD in one fell swoop!
Cate Blanchett always stuns us with her incredible ability to look equally at ease in something dramatic as something relatively simple, like she did during an appearance on Late Show with David Letterman on Monday.
The actress wore a long-sleeved Altuzarra sheath dress with a subtle bustier-like accent along the bodice and open-toe, pearl-trimmed Nicholas Kirkwood heels.
She completed her look with a two-toned Roger Vivier handbag and a no-fuss updo.
Doesn't she just leave you so utterly inspired???
