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.

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.
