Will Cate Blanchett be joining the next Star Trek film?
If this black skirt suit by Tom Ford is any indication, she may be headed to actual space, perhaps as a member of the in-flight crew on Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic flights? Something about the tight fit, wide peplum pop and all-around uniform feel make the Blue Jasmine star look like she's about to partake in some very official business, in a galaxy far, far away.
Of course if we're wrong and Cate-the-Great isn't headed on a mission to Mars, then does this look work on Earth? Frankly, we're not so sure...
It's very drab and severe, even for fall fashion. Plus we prefer The Hobbit actress in something that highlights her light features. That said, we have to give her (and Tom Ford) credit for designing a suit unlike any we've ever seen. Maybe someday we'll all be wearing this uniform on our space pods—unless it's silver jump suits for everyone, as originally planned.
