Cate Blanchett's Controversial Shoe Trend Will Leave the Internet Divided

As the SAG-AFTRA union strike marches on, I can't help but miss red carpet fashion moments. Cate Blanchett is one of the celebrities best known for her impeccable red carpet style, where she's regularly dripping in diamonds and designer gowns, but her off-duty style is absolutely worth noting, too. Photographed on a late-summer vacation in Ibiza, Spain, Blanchett looked incredibly chic in a loose vest, matching trousers, and a white button-down shirt.

It was her shoes, however, that caught my attention. If I had to describe her outfit, it I'd say "business on top, party on the bottom." Her platform clogs are certainly a polarizing choice, as the clunky trend isn't for everyone—and that's more than okay. Scroll down to see how Cate Blanchett styles platform clogs and shop the trend for yourself.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
