Cate Blanchett was back down under yesterday to attend the opening of the Sydney Film Festival and chose this double breasted Giorgio Armani suit. Although the suit is beautiful - it is Giorgio Armani after all - the proportions just sem all wrong. The shape and length of the trousers let this look down.
I know you are a style icon for many, Rihanna, but I'm not sure about this one. The Bajan singer went androgynous on us in a black puff-sleeve suit, white ruffle shirt and black bow tie by Dolce & Gabbana at the “Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion” Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Katy Perry normally doesn't get it wrong. I like the fact that she's wearing a suit and being daring with the print because suits are everywhere this season. However, I think she might have taken daring a bit too far with the print. I might be wrong. Do you disagree?
"They told us to wear jeans to work Wednesday, and if we're not in the building by 9 a.m., we're not getting in. Since the city's pretty much on lockdown, they're not even letting anyone out for a smoke, so I'm more worried about people not being able to get nicotine than anything."

Gearing up to tomorrow's G20 conference kickoff is a full days of protests, which have an apocalyptic Four Horseman theme (?!) and have anarchists and other more confrontational activists threatening to storm troop financial institutions and law firms.
And yet, this all carries a very specific dress code.
