To Chanel With Love


Cate Blanchett wearing Chanel in Blue Jasmine

On Monday night, Cate Blanchett showed off her fashion chops while wearing a high-volume Balenciaga look to the New York premiere of Woody Allen’s new film, Blue Jasmine. But it would seem the actress’s designer sensibility extended to her on-screen look, too. The film’s costume designer, Suzy Benzinger, told Lucky magazine that she enlisted Karl Lagerfeld to create some custom bouclé Chanel jackets for Blanchett’s character, Jasmine—a Park Avenue princess who loses it all. Blanchett also wears Ralph Lauren—seemingly a Woody favorite, considering the label outfitted the cast of Annie Hall—in her starring role. Allen’s always been a trendsetter, but his embrace of Kaiser Karl brings him to a whole new level on the style front—and we’d have to believe that Chanel is a club of which he wouldn’t mind being a member.
