Cate Blanchett's acting prowess allows her to take on any character seamlessly, and this chameleon trait happens to translate brilliantly to fashion.

The Australian beauty graces the red carpet in a sculptural gown with floating flowers one night and then a structured wide-leg pantsuit the next. She consistently takes risks but is forever polished and never ridiculous—even when she's covered in sequins or a flurry of feathers. Of course, her dewy complexion and unrivaled poise only make us fall that much harder.

Unbelievably, the ageless actress turns 45 this week, and to celebrate we gathered her best and boldest looks. Take a scroll to see why she's the reigning queen of the red carpet.

Personal, practical, architectural. I like things that have great shapes and are tailored to fit just right.
