One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
Ooh! This is one of Cate Blanchett's sexiest looks ever!
The actress attended yet another award ceremony, the AACTA Awards, in Sydney, Australia today, and she DAZZLED in more ways than one!
Her bronze and gold Givenchy gown featured a pleated skirt and very pluuuunging neckline that gave just the tiniest hint of side boob!
But, of course, it was totally classy and regal as always!
