Cate Blanchett in the new Armani campaign
When it comes to classic, timeless beauty, Australian actress Cate Blanchett wins hands-down in our beauty books, so we were beyond thrilled to see Miss Blanchett looking every inch the blonde beauty in her new campaign for Giorgio Armani fragrance, Sí.
The 44-year-old actress is no stranger to the beauty world, having already starred in ads for skincare line SK-II, although this is Cate’s fragrance debut, and by golly, doesn’t she just look gorgeous? Elegant and understated in a simple white shirt, the actress looks totally stunning as she stares into the camera with a winning fresh-faced complexion. Want to get the look at home? Arm yourself with a rose-peach powder blush a la Blanchett- team Grazia beauty are huge fans of cult NARS blusher in Orgasm, £21.50. Cate’s pouty yet lipstick-free mouth is also an uber-fresh look for spring, and beyond easy to pull off. We recommend a tinted lip balm like Burts Bee’s Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus, £5.99 for a slick of colour and a burst of hydration to boot.
Either way, we just can’t stop swooning over these images of the gorgeous Cate, and we’re loving the clean, minimalist 90s aesthetic, too, which, by the way, is totally fitting with the fresh notes of the new fragrance. A blend of vanilla, cassis, patchouli and freesia- this is one heck of a grown-up scent which we cannot wait to get our hands on.
The new fragrance is currently only available in Harrods but goes on sale nationwide from 1 September.
