There are so many women in the entertainment industry who love getting dressed up and looking good for any red carpet event but, as is always the case with these ceremonies, there are always going to be people who are out to shoot you down, no matter how good you look. There are always lists of who wore it well and who did not, which is really not fair on those who have put a lot of effort into their look, only to get slated online.
Hollywood veteran Cate Blanchett has been working in the entertainment industry for many years now, walking a huge amount of red carpets along the way. Cate has now been talking about wanting to look good on the red carpet, while insisting that she hates the fact that there is so much more pressure on the women than the men, with so much unnecessary criticism of what they wear.
Blanchett slammed, "Women like looking sexy, but it doesn't mean we want to f**k you. No one says to Steve Bannon, 'you look like a bag of trash. Do you want me to throw you out?' But the comments that get said about what women wear on the red carpet - I mean. If you troll through those trolls on the Internet, just don't. I just say, 'bring it on, ladies!' Break it wide open. I think you're all extraordinary.''
She added, "You know what? I would be totally fine about walking down the red carpet without any make-up if everyone didn't have their telephoto lenses looking for faults. The thing is, the red carpet is a gladiatorial sport for women. There was one moment at the Golden Globes when they wanted me to stick my hand into a mani-pedi cam. It's like, are you f***ing kidding me?! Are you really that micro in your assessment? I'm here because I'm nominated for my work, you know what I mean?"
While we can completely understand where Cate Blanchett is coming from, we have to admit that we cannot see anything changing any time soon and we can pretty much guarantee that the next red carpet will see the trolls back out in force.
