Cate Blanchett news compilation

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Some Cate related news. A new boxset of the The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy will be released in October 2021 for the 20th anniversary of The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. It’s a 31-disc boxset that will have both theatrical and extended version of the movies, it will  include the (virtual) cast reunion that was shown post screening at Alamo Drafthouse cinemas early this year.

Cate is also in a cover for a new book titled Portrait of an Artist: Conversations with Trailblazing Creative Women by Hugo Huerta Marin which will be released on October 5th 2021. We will also have first look on Don’t Look Up on September 25th 2021.

Portrait of an Artist

From legendary visual artists Yoko Ono and Tracey Emin, to groundbreaking musicians like Annie Lennox and Debbie Harry, to fashion giants such as Miuccia Prada and Diane von Fu?rstenberg, this collection of original interviews and Polaroid photographs of almost 30 trailblazing women spans creative industries, nationalities and generations to bring together a never-before- published collection of leading voices. Featuring an astounding range of names including FKA Twigs, Isabelle Huppert and Rei Kawakubo, this book creates both a portrait of each individual woman and – collectively – a powerful portrait of the impact of women on the creative industries. Each pioneering creative is interviewed and photographed by the Mexican artist Hugo Huerta Marin. The women speak openly with Huerta Marin about their challenges and joys; their vulnerabilities and their triumphs. Cate Blanchett reflects on the differences between acting on stage and in film; Marina Abramovic discusses her most radical piece of performance art; Annie Lennox reminisces about London in the 1970s; Carrie Mae Weems discusses the relationship between race and photography —these and other conversations are further brought to life by Huerta Marin’s candid, intimate Polaroid images. These photographs, which allow readers to lock eyes with their subjects, reflect the natural tone of each conversation, allowing the reader rare insight into the lives of these renowned artists. Inspiring and revealing, this collection of interviews and photographs gives readers an unparalleled connection with some of the most fascinating women working in the arts today.

Cate Blanchett was the second celebrity we were brushing shoulders with this week on the EVOKE beauty desk, just a day after watching Hailey Bieber take us through BareMinerals new Virtual Villa.

Hailey was keeping us informed on the latest skin and makeup launches at BareMinerals, Cate was part of the new Sì Intense EDP launch from Armani Beauty on Thursday afternoon.

And really, there is nothing we like more than hearing about, writing about, and wearing fragrances, so it was a real treat.

Cate, as you know, is the face behind the most modern and elegant scent that is now in the top five fragrances in Europe if not yet the whole world, an impressive ranking for a scent that’s really not that old. And this new one sounds right up our street.

The launch itself was quite an achievement, the 3 pm start time was to allow press from the States to take part, in all more than 200 journalists from 30 countries were all zoomed into the meeting that was taking place in Milan, while Cate Blanchett was coming in from her UK home.

Dressed in Armani red, Cate looked immaculately groomed and no doubt wearing her new Sì Intense eau de parfum, she really looks the part of the strong, independent, feminine woman that the fragrance represents.

Speaking about the new perfume, Cate said it’s her type of scent, the new Intense joins the other two in clear glass bottles, all three are Chypre, while the two Sì Passione fragrances are more Floral Musky scents.

The new Sì Intense has some extra notes to really ramp up its depth and fragrance trail. Blackcurrant nectar adds juiciness to the top notes, while Isparta Rose and Davana amplify the floral heart with an apricot and velvet feel.

In the dry down, the last lingering aroma of a scent, Armani has added a divine trio of vanilla, patchouli, and benzoin resin, this is a seriously sexy perfume. It will launch in March at Brown Thomas, Arnotts, and independent pharmacies nationwide, €90/50ml.

When asked what her beauty secret was towards the end of the huge zoom meeting, Cate Blanchett said she doesn’t ‘believe we should have beauty secrets’ but if she had to pick a mantra for beauty it would be to ‘look after your gut health, the Chinese say it’s your second brain’ so it makes sense that if you look after your gut health, all beauty will spring from this healthy approach. Sound advice, thanks Cate.
