Wrapped up in a sparkling, skin-tight Cavalli dress, actress and full-time goddess Cate Blanchett graces this month’s special Icon Issue of British Harper’s Bazaar. She’s absolutely divine here, isn’t she? One more reason to love her.
Cate on fashion:
There are people out there who sculpt things on the body. I mean, you spend half an hour with Karl Lagerfeld and heâ€™s so keyed into your current movements, and heâ€™s always expanding himself. He gives you 20 books to read, and youâ€™re enriched. At that kind of level, thereâ€™s a really interesting crossfertilisation (of culture) that goes on.
Cate on Hollywood:
In the film industry, thereâ€™s this real sense that itâ€™s not just what youâ€™re doing at the time, but itâ€™s where itâ€™s going to lead you. Thatâ€™s antithetical to the way I think. Iâ€™ve always been much more interested in the process, rather than the outcome. Itâ€™s taken me a long time to kind of remember that these things come out and they (generate enormous) exposure.
Cate on acting:
Itâ€™s a fascinating thing to do with oneâ€™s life. Itâ€™s sort of like not having to make a choice about how one spends oneâ€™s life. You get to have so many different sets of experiences. The journey is immensely broad.
In case you were wondering, Cate is wearing this amazing golden Roberto Cavalli dress from the Fall 2007 collection which was the highlight of the show. So want to have this one!
