I adore Cate Blanchett. I think she is one of the most intelligent, most capable and most stylish women on the planet at the moment.

I admire that, because it’s all too easy to go with an elegant and safe style and never be on the worst dressed list. Cate often goes for a fashionable look, which is usually surprising, often incredibly stylish and never boring.

This is just the first of over 40 style icons I plan to feature on this site. Who is your favorite style icon?
All the best,
