Every time Cate Blanchett steps onto the red carpet, we swoon. Between the sartorial genius of her Blue Jasmine promotional style to her absolute domination of the 2014 award season, Cate's impressive red carpet résumé has solidified her place in
the fashion world history. Whether she's floating down the start-studded aisle in a whimsical Givenchy, pushing the envelope in an over-the-top Christian Dior Haute Couture, or foreshadowing future fashion in a sequined red Armani Privé, we can always count on Cate to shatter the sartorial precedent.
In honor of Blanchett's birthday, treat yourself to a collection of her most ravishing red carpet ensembles to date. We can only imagine the savoir-faire surprises she has up her sleeve.
