A new accolade for Cate, and not from an actors guild!
Two-time Academy Award® winning actress Cate Blanchett will receive the LACOSTE Spotlight Award at the 18th Costume Designers Guild Awards (CDGA) on February 23, 2016 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The LACOSTE Spotlight Award honors an actor whose talent and career personify an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design. Blanchett is being honored for her unparalleled talent as much as for her status within the costume design community. Her appreciation for the artistry of costume design and her collaboration with the Costume Designers has made her an icon both on and off the screen.
