In addition to her performance in Tár, which garnered critical acclaim, Cate also impressed with her wardrobe as she continues a non-stop press tour leading up to the film’s release.
Backed by superstar celebrity Elizabeth Stewart, Blanchett has recently impressed with Alexander McQueen and Giorgio Armani.
The style icon’s next role will be quite a departure from her dramatic character in Tár when she joins the mockumentary TV series Documentary Now! to fake a British barber.
Tár will be in select theaters on Friday and opens nationwide on October 28.
