My Fashion Spirit Animal: Cate Blanchett in Ocean’s 8

The new Ocean’s 8 is filled to the brim with epic fashion. From Sandra Bullock serving us effortless glamour to Rihanna’s laid back threads there is a style inspiration for us all. So we partnered up with Warner Brother’s to recreate the fashion from the film and brought together some of Joburg’s most styling lasses. You can check out the full shoot here as well as the Ocean’s 8 inspired fashion films.

But now for my fashion inspo: Cate Blanchett as “Lou”!

It’s retro, it’s sexy, it slays. She looked incredible in every single scene! Costume Designer Sarah Edwards has this to say to the LA Times about Blanchett’s wardrobe:

“Her character owns a nightclub in New York, and we thought about what her history was, probably a rock n roll pioneer in the 80s and 90s. We looked at a lot of iconic rock stars throughout time what they did and how they wore their clothes and jewelry. Shes a very strong character, so we ended up doing 70s three-piece suits, which became her silhouette through the film. We incorporated vintage jewelry and scarves. Each one was kind of painfully chosen from everywhere from a thrift store to Burberry to H&M. Getting those layers and textures was really important to defining her character.”

So this is how we did it! Enjoy!
