  • From her undeniable talent to her incredible sense of style, there’s much to appreciate about Cate Blanchett. The Australian actress celebrates her birthday today, so we’re paying homage to the latter, especially as Blanchett’s become known for her risk-taking, directional looks over the years. She cemented her fashion icon status at the 1999 Academy Awards in a custom-made backless gown--and she’s continued to stun us ever since. From a figure-defining, shimmery red number to a metallic silver pantsuit, Blanchett’s style is anything but conventional. Click through our slideshow to celebrate some of the actress’ best looks!
