Cate Blanchett's Cape Dress Is An Optical Illusion (PHOTOS, POLL)

Cate Blanchett is always turning heads. The actress often chooses glittering, edgy, show-stopping frocks for red carpet events -- and the dress she wore to Monday's "Blue Jasmine" premiere was no exception to her aesthetic.

In a pastel pink, caped Balenciaga.Edition dress, Cate certainly made a fashion-forward statement. The dress' careful structure incorporated strong shoulders and floral embroidery in one striking look -- and we were surprised to see she removed the outfit's mullet-like cape detail later in the evening.

Check out Cate's dramatic dress below. What do you make of it?
