Cate Blanchett Recycles Favorite Armani Gown for Cannes Opening Night | THR News

Cate Blanchett re-wore her favorite Armani gown for opening night at the Cannes Film Festival, and she did it to make a statement. Now, sustainability has become a hot topic in fashion, and Blanchett put it front-and-center on the Cannes red carpet. The jury president stepped out on Tuesday night wearing an intricately detailed, black lace look that keen style watchers may recognize: it’s the same Armani Prive gown she wore to the 2014 Golden Globes. Blanchett exclusively told The Hollywood Reporter, “From couture to T-shirts, landfills are filled with garments that have been unnecessarily discarded.” She added, “Particularly in today’s climate, it seems willful and ridiculous that such beautiful garments are not cherished and re-worn for a lifetime.” The Ocean’s 8 star’s stylist, Elizabeth Stewart, echoed the statement, saying, “We couldn’t see any reason not to re-wear a dress we love so much…” She added, “It’s not just couture gowns that take hundreds of hours to make but all clothes that are filling landfills. We need to get the word out to get rid of this ridiculous notion that dresses cannot be worn twice! Beautiful clothes should last a lifetime.” The jury president has been choosing her Cannes wardrobe carefully to address several issues that are top of mind in Hollywood and the fashion industry, including sustainability and female representation. On Tuesday afternoon, for a jury photocall, the actress chose a pastel pink suit by Stella McCartney, a designer who has made environmental and animal welfare the foundation of her luxury business. Blanchett isn’t the only start to recently make headlines for recycling a look. Tiffany Haddish also received praise for re-wearing the white Alexander McQueen gown she originally donned at the Girls Trip premiere during both her Saturday Night Live hosting stint and while presenting at the 2018 Academy Awards.
