Cate Blanchett for Vanity Fair France Magazine

Posted on March 31, 2014

Miss Cate takes a post-Oscar win victory lap. Y’know, we wish more stars did that. We’d love a whole bunch of Lupita editorials right now.

Not that we’re complaining. Cate giving FACE more than makes us happy at the mo.

That suit is gorgeous on her. Love the hair too.

Okay, Lupita. Your turn.

    Bowing the fuck down. Kate Hepburn motherfucking REALNESS.

    World. Rocked.

    I effing love this suit. Love the hair, and that is some good face. Nice to have some great Cate going on.

    *lies prostrate on the floor*

    *wonders if she should vacuum*

    *looks up at the glorious ladypants*

    *doesn’t care*

    • Danielle

      *joins you*

  • marlie

    Gorge. I love everything about this.

  • Clash D

    Now THIS is a face that sells magazines, not Kanye and whatshername.

  • Lucinda Head

    *Congregation rises*

  • blue808

    Face is world-class….crotch area is wonky-ville.

    • kimmeister

      Ha! That city is, sadly, over-populated.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Hot damn!

  • Gatto Nero

    Awe-inspiring. And I like the collarless patterned shirt with this suit.

  • KT

    Really fab. Love this look.

    Is it just me, or does she look a bit like Eva Green in the first shot? I’ve never thought that before, but something about her eyes resembles Eva here… weird

  • boweryboy


  • Aidan B

    Perfection in pattern. Just what I needed today.

  • decormaven

    Thank you so much for this. After the parade of tacky from the youngsters, it’s wonderful to see Cate show ’em how it’s done.

  • B_C_J

    Wondrous eyes. Love her in the suit too.

  • Alicia

    Aren’t those Jennifer Lawrence’s eyes, though?

    • B_C_J

      Definitely a resemblance.

    • jilly_d

      TRUTH. Just scrolled down to type the fact that this was giving me “JLaw in 15 years” realness

    • kmk05

      OH THANK GOD. I thought I was the only one.

    • futurenicole

      I totally thought it was JLaw when I saw the thumbnail, which only shows the upper half of Cate’s face. (A little disturbing on the airbrushing front, though, that it seemed believable that I was looking at a 23-year-old’s face when it’s really a 44-year-old’s. Not saying Cate isn’t an otherworldly beauty, though …)

  • zenobar

    Marlene Fabulousness.

  • Janet B


  • Kent Roby

    We are being schooled on style lessons she learned from playing Hepburn, and I am the eager student taking notes.

  • ovarB

    à chaque rôle, je me dis que c’est fini!!

  • BlairBear

    I am so bummed France gets her and we will probably get Kim Kardashian or Tan Mom. sigh

    • Golfkat

      I just subscribed (I live in Europe) and I honestly have no idea which one I subscribed to. I didn’t even really know there were more than one 😛 I guess I’ll have to wait and see! I think the US cover for April is the Game of Thrones cast, so that should be okay 😉

      • BlairBear

        Thats pretty decent. But I would swap for Cate in a second.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Yes, I would too. Nothing against GOT, but I love me some Cate.

  • greymain

    hair is spectacular!

  • Loramir

    LOVE the suit. She can channel Kate Hepburn like nobody else.
    Dubious that James Franco is among Hollywood’s new elite. Pretty sure any list that puts James Franco in the same category as Emma Thompson is deeply flawed.

  • Tanya Wade

    That bespoke suit is the world on a silver platter with a red ribbon and cherry on top.

  • formerlyAnon

    Ohhh YUM! I love that suit on her.

    It all looks a tad warm and bulky now that Spring is supposed to be here, but seasons & fashion shoots apparently no longer must align.

  • Sophie

    Reminds me of Marlene Dietrich. She looks great.

  • Danielle

    And the angels sang!

  • SugarSnap108

    Goddess in a herringbone suit.

  • Fuchsiaforever

    The other day this random thought popped in my mind: “I miss Lupita…wonder what she’s up to?”. HAHAHA

    Cate- this is TERRIFIC! *Applause*

  • demidaemon

    KILLED IT! Love this hair on her, too.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    LOVING that cover, and I cove that suit. Our Cate looks fabulous. and yes, Lupita, you’re next!

  • Sunraya

    She is the definition of fabulous!!!

  • understateddiva

    Lovely. I have to whine a little, though. Her skin looks more luminous in pap shots than it does here – how is this possible? Did they matte-ify her?

  • e jerry powell

    That suit made me die. I AM SLAIN.

    But seriously, who is offering Lupita editorial shoots right now? Miss You-Know-Who is up to her elbows in Kimye poop.

  • littlemac8


  • ScarlettHarlot

    I’m a busty true hourglass shape, (exactly A-B-A proportions) and I love it, but oh how there are times I wish I could give up my curves for a day to rock this kind of suit look that she and Tilda get away with. She looks fab, and I am jealous.

  • Pablo

    Cate looks beautiful but seriously, where did Lupita go? I haven’t seen posts about her for very long

  • rage_on_the_page

    Cate + Armani = a beautiful thing.
