Who: Cate Blanchett

Where: The premiere of Woody Allen's new film Blue Jasmine at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

When: July 22

What: A custom-made, blush colored Balenciaga dress; Balenciaga shoes, and "Socrate" earrings and a "Between the Finger" ring by Van Cleef & Arpels.

Why: The dress melds couture-like elegance with off-kilter proportions—which Blanchett pulls off with natural aplomb. It's an appropriate combination considering that her character, Jasmine, is a Park Avenue princess who devolves into mental instability.
