Cate Blanchett will blow out 53 candles on her birthday cake today. The famous Australian actress, producer, and theater director was born on 14 May 1969 in Melbourne. She is considered one of the most versatile and best actresses of her generation, and for her great acting performances, she has twice won an Oscar and three Golden Globe and BAFTA awards.
In addition to a number of fantastic roles such as The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Carol, Elizabeth, The Aviator, Blue Jasmine, Charlotte Gray, and many others, Cate is also known as a favorite of fashion critics.
Always her own, recognizably different, interesting, and fearless fashion player – that’s Cate Blanchett. When everyone on the red carpet appears in a bright trendy shade, you can count on the fact that she will step on the red carpet in something completely opposite, like an ordinary black dress decorated with only a few statement pieces of jewelry, and look perfect.
On the other hand, on occasions when others play it safe, it is she who will shine in spectacular creations of unexpected cut or unusual texture. Most importantly, Cate really has a sense of fashion and wears it all confidently and with attitude, and that is a big part of a good final fashion impression.
The Australian also has many fans among her famous colleagues, and one of them is Kristen Stewart. In 2018, Kristen was a member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival, while Cate was president. The photos in which Kristen and Lea Seydoux enthusiastically look at her as a deity and applaud her then have traveled the world.
“If we should send someone from Earth to the aliens as our representative, I think it should be Cate”, Kristen said. One thing is for sure – she would delight aliens with her style.
Cate Blanchett is one of the highest-paid actresses in the world, and in 2007 and 2018 she was considered one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Oh, and we almost forgot! Happy birthday, Cate!
