Cate Blanchett +teased-out hair + heavy eye make-up + purple tube dress + matching panties = HOTNESS

Okay, i was already looking forward to seeing this movie, but yer right, that's a fucking fantastic equation. Super hot.

Oh, c'mon -- Cate Blanchett + anything + anything = HOTNESS. Cate Blanchett in your granny's housedress and splattered with elephant dung = HOTNESS. Or at least hotness.

Erik, oh just you wait!

Meg, good point. But seriously, she's hot throughout, but when she starts to rat out her hair a little and cake on the eyeliner, the stakes are BEYOND raised.

Regardless, it's a great moment, even if it did remind me of Jame Gumb's make-up application scene in Silence of the Lambs ("I'm cryin, cryin, cryin over YOU...."). Yes, I'm sure that was unintentional, but that's where my head went during the scene, if only for a second.

And surprisingly FUN, too. I wasn't expecting it to be so raucous.
