Blanchett rocked classic menswear while arriving at the festival on Sept. 1. Perhaps more impressive than her résumé as an actress is her ability to wear all white without getting dirty.

Blanchett is a pro at wearing simple, classic ensembles — and looking impeccably stylish while she's at it. She added a navy blazer to the ensemble upon arrival and transformed the outfit.

Bringing Back the Bling

Starting off her re-wearing spree, Blanchett recycled this Esteban Cortázar gown on Sept. 2. We first saw this look at the BFI London Film Festival premiere of Carol in 2015 — it's no surprise that Blanchett still looks amazing in it.

Blanchett's stylist, Elizabeth Stewart wrote on Instagram that the dress will be donated for an auction via RAD (Red Carpet Advocacy), benefitting UN Women and Facing History and Ourselves.
