She had the fashion world buzzing when she wore an elaborate Givenchy Haute Couture gown to the Academy Awards, and now, actress Cate Blanchett continues her style streak with a specially designed Giorgio Armani wardrobe in her new film, Hanna. In the thriller, Blanchett plays Marissa Wiegler, a woman on a mission to catch a 16-year-old assassin, so director Joe Wright wanted her to look like the “wicked witch” of the story, with red hair and green attire, according to Hanna costume designer Lucie Bates. To illustrate that persona, Armani hand selected silhouettes, which included sharply tailored suits and a striking green cashmere overcoat. “Working with Cate Blanchett, on and off the screen, has always been a highlight for me,” Armani said in a release. “She embodies the perfect combination of consummate actor and world-class fashion icon.” Armani was not only a perfect fit for his front row fan, but it’s hardly the first time the legendary designer has dressed actors on screen: he suited up Richard Gere in American Gigolo, helped Katie Holmes in The Kennedys and lent his fashionable hand to Ocean’s Thirteen and The Dark Knight. Tell us: what do you think of Blanchett’s Hanna look? –Kim Peiffer

I liked the contrast with the green shoes that eventually magically failed her a the end. Quite a fairytail.
