Style Icon

Hands down, Cate Blanchett is my favorite actress. She draws you in. It's hard to pin her down because she has such a range both in her acting career and as a person of great style. I also find it refreshing that she can speak very intelligently about her work but can still laugh at herself too. Mrs. Blanchett has such an elegance about her that is almost regal, even when she's dressed very casually. But don't be fooled because she definitely is not afraid to try a lot of different looks and experiment. She never disappoints on the red carpet. Never. My all time favorite look is of her at the 2011 Academy Awards in Givenchy couture by Riccardo Tisci (pictured center). And her skin! Let me just say if you ever needed a reason to try SK-II and always wear sunscreen she would be it.
