Every Time Cate Blanchett Has Reworn a Red Carpet Look

As Cate Blanchett’s longtime stylist Elizabeth Stewart once said, “It’s chic to repeat.” And boy did she mean it. While some celebrities will reuse a look once or twice throughout their red carpet career, Blanchett is constantly digging in her archives to bring back her best looks for another go around.

So while we wait to see which old look Blanchett breathes new life into next, check out every time the actress has embraced chic repeats over the years.
