The blouse was inspired by Spitalfields silk. It uses a combination of beading and floral appliqué to create one cohesive piece. While it could almost pass as a different outfit, the re-wear is no coincidence.
In fact, Blanchett’s red carpet re-wears will benefit a fundraising campaign in collaboration with RAD (or “Red Carpet Advocacy”) and Chic Relief, the latter of which was co-founded by the actress’s stylist, Elizabeth Stewart.
Not only will Blanchett continue to flaunt recycled outfits during the ten-day film festival, but she’ll also donate each look to RAD for an upcoming philanthropic auction.
Stewart shared more details about the fundraiser on Instagram, writing, “Thank you to Cate and #SarahBurton for donating this look to the RAD for Venice auction benefiting @facinghistory and @unwomen. Please visit @chic-relief website (link in bio) from September 23 — October 2 to bid on this and many other looks from Venice! 100% of sales will be donated to these two charities.”
Timeless fashion FTW.
