When Cate Blanchett stepped on to the red carpet at the Oscars this year in a lilac Givenchy Haute Couture gown people either loved it or hated it.
But for those that thought the latter, Cate could care less.
She told InStyle:
"If people get it, they get it. If they don’t, then it doesn’t matter. There are so few houses that can afford to do couture, and since the red carpet is such a wonderful showcase, we should be celebrating that."
As for her favorite part of the dress, the Aussie gushed:
"The color combination, I couldn’t believe it when I saw it in real life. I was tempted to wear it two ways, because if you take the top part off, it’s a really simple halter dress underneath. I thought the external piece was so unusual."
We agree, but in the best way possible.

You know times are tough when robbers have to resort to using trees as weapons!
Check out this report out of Virginia about a robber who used a rather unusual weapon to hold up a convenience store. (above)
In case you were wondering, yes, the big stick beat out the hammer. Sad.

This is the strangest thing! There's so much weird going on here, we not even sure where to begin!
Meet Vladimir Putin, the current Prime Minister of Russia. At a recent fundraiser for children's-cancer research in St. Petersburg, the Prime Minister decided to, um, wow the crowd with his rendition of Blueberry Hill.
The performance is so unusual that within a few short days, its already gone viral! What makes things even more bizarre are the random celebrity cameos strewn throughout the video, while the Prime Minister punches out his jam.
No, really, we can't put into words how truly weird this is. You just have to see it to believe it!
Check out the video of Putin above!

She's not the first person you would consider for the part, but we think she is going to do an AMAZING job!
The long-awaited Janis Joplin bio-pic has yet to be greenlit, and is still going through various screenplay revisions, but there's word that Amy Adams is confirmed for the role of the iconic singer!
The film has also snagged City Of God director Fernando Meirelles to take the helm, so we are certainly curious to see what kind of final product is produced!
What do U think?? Do U agree with the casting choice??
