For the event, the star decisively rewore a sequined Armani Privé halterneck gown — first worn at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in February. In line with a little dash of spontaneity, the lace neckline was replaced with sheer colorful paneling from spring/summer 2023 in the revised dress. She accessorized with black heels and little jewelry, including Louis Vuitton earrings, and wore her blonde lob in beachy waves with gorgeous peach blush.

While Cate’s latest appearance makes this the fourth time she has recreated the iconic look, the dress itself has a long and rich history of sustainability behind it. According to Blanchett’s stylist Elizabeth Stewart, she previously wore the lace on an old Armani Privé gown to the Cannes Film Festival in 2018 and the Golden Globes in 2014.

In a Business of Fashion interview, the actress spoke more about her reinforced commitment to eco-friendly fashion and sustainability: “It should be completely unremarkable, the idea of re-wearing (clothes), because we do it in our daily lives. We do it out of habit; we do it out of choice; we do it out of necessity,” she said. “I think that there are a lot of people like me who are tired of the churn. But who also wants to keep the industry healthy in all its dimensions? There’s a chance here to redefine the notion of luxury. I think that it’s bringing back the cherished love aspect of it.”
