Cate Blanchett and her recycled red carpet looks have been the talk of the 2020 Venice Film Festival.
In an interview with WWD prior to the festival, she explained that the festival was the perfect time to reinvent the nature of the red carpet event as it is the first one in almost six months.
On Tuesday, her something new didn’t go down to well, so she reverted back to her sustainable style for the premiere of ‘Spy No Tsuma’ (Wife Of A Spy) on Wednesday (September 9) in Italy.
Cate first wore this Armani Privé Spring 2015 gown to the ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival premiere back in 2015.
Much like the first time Cate wore this. The look screams simple elegance, yet I feel
a little a lot guilty for wanting more.
I love the point that Cate is making with sustainability, but if you’re going to go back, why not go back further?
A lot of these recycled looks are quite recent.
I wish she had opted to recycle her 2008 Armani Prive gown from the ‘Blindness’ Cannes Film Festival premiere (one of my faves from Cate), her Givenchy Haute Couture gown from the 2011 Oscars, her Jean Paul Gaultier gown from the 2005 Golden Globes, her Armani Privé gown she wore for the 2007 Oscars.
Even her John Galliano for Dior Couture gown from the 1999 Oscars would’ve been a real treat.
I could really list these dresses all day long.
I think what I’m saying that I feel that these repeats would’ve piqued my interest more had they been repeats from some of her more iconic moments, but I still admire the message she is sending out.
