Fall is here, which means we’re going to see a lull in fringe and florals, and the return of (faux) fur and … feathers?! Believe it or not, the somewhat hippie-chic embellishment is taking the red carpet by storm in surprisingly sophisticated ways.

And just in the past week alone, three big stars braved the bold trend.

Cate Blanchett commanded our attention in this Prabal Gurung design featuring a full skirt of red and white feathers, worn to the Beauty in Wonderland Exhibition in Milan.

Both Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett are known for their excellent acting skills, but they’re both about to take on very different roles: fragrance pitchwomen, according to WWD.

Mara has been named as the face of Calvin Klein’s new scent Downtown, which will include TV spots helmed by her Girl With the Dragon Tattoo director David Fincher (plus ads shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, below).

We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the best – and worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Cate Blanchett, who selected a Rodarte dress for the Dubai International Film Festival:

Well hello there Cate Blanchett, don’t you look fantastic on the red carpet?!

I must admit, I initially did not like what Cate had going on in this photo. At first glance the dress looked a little “ick” for me, but that’s so not the case. Within seconds I experienced a moment of clarity and said to myself, “Whoa, this is so elegant and quite becoming.” I am so loving it, to say the least.

Cate Blanchett 'Frightened' by Plastic Surgery

If there’s one star in Hollywood who won’t be getting Botox anytime soon, it sounds like it’s Cate Blanchett. “I’m not sitting on a soapbox telling women what they should and shouldn’t do,” she tells Fashion ETC. “I just know what works for me. I’d be too frightened about what it means long-term. Looking at women in their 20s doing this stuff, in the end all you see is the work. It doesn’t fill me with admiration; it fills me with pity.”

Luckily, the actress doesn’t have to worry too much about her skin: her pale complexion is basically flawless, a fact she credits to Japanese skincare brand SK-II (she’s the face of the company). “I’ve been using it for a long time,” she says, adding that part of her basic routine is born of laziness. “If it works, I keep using it. It’s about consistency.”

In addition to using the brand’s delicate lotions and masks — she put her own $250 skincare kit together back in 2008 — the Aussie actress relies on occasional oxygen facials, emu oil, Paw Paw Ointment and daily doses of sunscreen. But some signs of aging even Blanchett can’t prevent: when asked about sun exposure, she resigns, “You’re going to get it anyway.” Tell us: How do you take care of your skin?
