Who: Cate Blanchett

Where: The 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards in Santa Monica, California

When: Thursday, January 16th

What: A forest green, floor-length dress with almost T-shirt like simplicity from Lanvin Pre-Fall 2014 with a wide black leather belt and sleek clutch.

Why: Modest by red carpet standards, only a true Hollywood veteran could pull off a paired down and covered up look like this. With her simple and clean take on the long bob, minimal accessories, and orange-red lip, the Blue Jasmine actress walked away with the award for Best Actress—and our seal of approval.
