At the ongoing Venice Film Festival 2020, Cate Blanchett stepped out in gorgeous outfits. But turns out the actor was not wearing them for the first time.

Brand Wagon Conclave

For the festival, the Ocean’s 8 actor chose to repeat her clothes in an effort to promote sustainable fashion.

In one of her appearances, Blanchett, who is the president of the jury of this year’s film festival, donned a midnight-blue, shimmering gown by Esteban Cortazar.

Later, she was seen in an asymmetrical, floral top by Alexander McQueen, teamed with a pair of black trousers.

Celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart wrote on Instagram, “IT’S CHIC TO REPEAT! #CateBlanchett has decided to rewear some of her most cherished looks at this year’s Venice Film Festival, like this Esteban Cortazar (gown) worn…that was first worn to a premiere in 2015. In her words, Beautiful things can come out of sustainability!”
