Cate Blanchett is getting recognized for her appreciation of costume design. The Oscar-winning star will receive the Lacoste Spotlight Award at the Costume Designers Guild Awards, it was announced Wednesday.
The award “honors an actor whose talent and career personify an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design,” according to a release. Blanchett has proven she’s quite deserving of this honor — the Australian actress has worn one-of-a-kind designer pieces in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, donned chic pantsuits and glamorous gowns in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator and looked like the ultimate boss in Middle-earth in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Most recently, she wore elaborate ball gowns as the evil stepmother in Cinderella and embraced ‘50s elegance in Carol.
The annual CDGA ceremony will be held Feb. 23 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
