Not many could have pulled off Lanvin’s Pre-Fall tent dress as well as Blanchett. The red carpet vet brightened up her Critics’ Choice Awards ensemble with a red-orange lip and soft, simple hair.

Blanchett’s pale pink Givenchy dress for the SAG Awards was her most unusual—and perhaps prettiest—look to date. Abandoning her now-signature waist-cinching styles, the Blue Jasmine actress kept the overall vibe soft with simple makeup and accessories and loosely pulled-back hair.

Ever the style chameleon, Blanchett opted for a shimmering Givenchy dress at the AACTA Awards in Sydney. With a messy ponytail and edgy jewels, the star shined in more ways than one.

Blanchett stunned in a black Proenza Schouler dress at the New York premiere of The Monuments Men. Her sleek side bun and Chopard jewels amped up the glam factor of the sparkling, but covered-up, choice.
