Cate Blanchett calls out red carpet sexism at the SAGs

Where was Leonardo DiCaprio’s full-length, outfit-spanning shot at the Screen Actor’s Guild awards?

And how about Bradley Cooper’s turn in the E! News ‘mani-cam’?

Gallery: Pics from the red carpet.

Cate Blanchett might be the darling of the awards season, having scooped up Best Actress awards across the board so far, but she’s not beyond calling out casual red carpet sexism when she’s confronted with it.

The Blue Jasmine star found herself the victim of one particularly objectifying sweeping camera shot, that aimed to capture her outfit from the hem of her Givenchy gown to the tip of her side-swept hairstyle.

Crouching down to the E! cameraman’s level, she pointed at him and said: “Do you do that to the guys?”

True to her observation, the broadcaster didn’t appear to pay nearly as much attention to any of the male actors who stopped to talk to presenters on their way into the awards that evening.

Since then, Blanchett has become the heralded star of a feminist GIF doing the rounds on social media, that highlights the fact that women in Hollywood are still honoured by the media for their appearance ahead of their talents and achievements.

As has Top of the Lake and Mad Men actress Elisabeth Moss, who showed E!’s manicam-eraman exactly what she thought of their equally tasteless new feature.

Delphine Arnault Leaves Dior for Luxury Brand Louis Vuitton

One of the most powerful women in the industry, French business mogul Delphine Arnault, is going to be taking a step up in the fashion world. Although currently holding a position as Diors deputy general manager, this September she will be taking over as second-in-command at

Louis Vuitton

. This news comes as no great surprise, as Arnault has been moving across the LVMH family (which includes influential names such as Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Fendi, and Bvlgari) for years; giving her an opportunity to study the family business. Her father Bernard Arnault is CEO of LVMH, one of the largest luxury brands in the world, and Delphine Arnault is more than suited to someday rise to that position.

Givenchy Men's Pre-Fall 2013

Givenchy’s menswear—beloved of women, too, by the way—can feel like a snarling Rottweiler snap at tradition. But don’t tell Riccardo Tisci that. His pre-fall menswear, debuting exclusively here, “is important because it is about iconic recognizable shapes, fabrics, prints, and looks,” Tisci tells Style.com. “It shows this elegant man with strength who knows how to mix couture and urban street elements. He’s got the confidence to play with his own look.”

The Rotts are back—well, dobermans, this time, but who’s counting—in digital-painted versions and gnashing their teeth on buffalo plaid jumpers that should be the latest sold-out hit for a label with a long track record of them. Leather-paneled puffers and sharp tailoring are among the other standouts in a collection long on bite. You’ve got to goggle at the temerity of Tisci, to slap PERVERT on the back of a top whose label bears the name of one of couture’s most august houses. But that’s not far from his mind, either. He sprinkled a monogram motif throughout: HDG, for House de Givenchy. Food for thought: Those are the initials of its founder Hubert, whose spirit Tisci said guided his most recent women’s show.
