Blanchett recalls first style splurge

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett bought an Armani suit with her first ever paycheque.

The 44-year-old actress has made it no secret she is a massive fan of designer Giorgio Armani.

As part of an interview for the January edition of Canada's ELLE magazine Cate shared a purchase she made after receiving her first ever earnings.

"When I emerged from drama school with my very first paycheque, I bought an Armani suit, which I still have - and still wear!" she smiled.

Cate looks flawless in the photoshoot for the publication, which was helmed by photographer Jan Welters. Her blonde hair has been tussled and although the pictures are black and white it is clear she is wearing a dark-coloured lipstick.

In addition to loving Armani's clothing Cate is also the face of the Italian label's latest fragrance Sì.

She has previously spoken about her passion for designer brands and how she is drawn to a fashion house who have original and innovative pieces.

"I'm really excited to see what Jason Wu is going to do [in the future], always. Prabal [Gurung] is really interesting, and Christopher Kane is doing some really amazing stuff. What Raf [Simons] is doing at Dior, what Karl [Lagerfeld] is doing at Fendi. Mr. Armani is constantly reinventing the wheel - there's always something new to look at," she recently gushed.

"And, it's not always the up-and-coming designers - often you get a complete surprise by a gown or a collection from a really established designer. That's what I really admire."
