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?

Cate Blanchett Wears Custom Armani Wardrobe in 'Hanna'

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

24 Hour Trend Alert: Sexy Menswear-Inspired Suits

Jan/19/2011 at 07:00 PM ET

We have already seen literal interpretations of menswear for the ladies, but fashion’s boldest trendsetters re-imagined the trend in a variety of ways — all in the last day! The latest iterations of the look range from the risqué to the buttoned-up, but always include stylishly sexy details. Tuesday night, Cate Blanchett opted for a black-and-white look, selecting crisp white trousers and shiny lapels for the IWC “A Night in Portofino” gala in Geneva, Switzerland. In L.A., Camilla Belle was spotted pairing high-waisted tuxedo trousers with a gauzy nude bandeau, revealing her toned abdomen at the premiere of From Prada to Nada. And back across the pond, Kylie Minogue ramped up a classic suit with a sheer blouse, breezy bow and crimped updo. We applaud Hollywood’s affirmation that behind every menswear-inspired look is a strong woman, but want your opinion. Tell us: Are you riding the coattails of the latest menswear trend? Are you ready to add a pantsuit to your going-out wardrobe?Justine Harman
