The American Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony drew in the biggest stars from the cinema universe. On the red carpet, elegance was paramount. Full-length dresses caressed the floor, and mesmerized with their regal, intricately crafted designs. Emily Blunt's red attire adorned with Japanese flowers was eye-catching. Cara Delevingne's ensemble was inspired by classical styles. However, it was Cate Blanchett who truly stole the spotlight. The star revamped her old lace dress and became a modern style icon.

Cate Blanchett recycles dress from 2014

This was not her first time recycling, at least not entirely. Cate Blanchett's attire wasn't a shiny new "gem" straight from Armani's atelier. The star redressed in her old lace dress, which she previously sported at the Golden Globes in 2014, and the Cannes Film Festival in 2018.

The stylist shares truth about the black dress

The star chose to don her intricate black lace dress for the third time. The actress's stylist, Elizabeth Stewart, revealed the secret of the dress, by posting a photo of Cate Blanchett from the recent SAG ceremony and the aforementioned Golden Globe Awards. The original dress underwent modifications, but the common elements are easy to identify.

The original design of the dress encompassed lace throughout its length. The design with short sleeves, an open back, and a collar that flares out, has delicate cut-outs exhibiting a touch of skin.

The same lace was incorporated into Cate Blanchett's latest ensemble. Intricate embroidery adorned the attire's top, and crafted an interesting cut-out, tastefully highlighting the décolletage.

Old is new again. Cate Blanchett reuses dresses

She merged the old design with a new sequin dress. The bodycon, black, and shimmering dress gorgeously accentuated the actress's figure. The dress thereby emanated glamor, sex-appeal and the aura of a leading star.

Cate Blanchett embraces fashion with sensibility and exceptional creativity. She seeks originality, fuses old and new, upholds sustainable fashion, and as a result distinguishes herself from her contemporaries who tread the convenient route by opting for ready-to-wear dresses.
