Cate Blanchett: Scent shoot was a challenge

Cate Blanchett hopes she has things in common with Giorgio Armani’s Sì woman.

Cate Blanchett found it challenging to shoot the campaign film for Giorgio Armani’s Sì fragrance.

The double Oscar winner has long since been an Armani fan and often wears the designer’s gowns when stepping out to a glitzy event, which means she was a natural choice to front the brand’s perfume Sì. The latest film promoting the scent was shot in Cate’s native Australia and is full of billowing curtains, sweeping landscape shots and stunning dresses.

“Making this film for Sì was a challenge, actually,” Cate admitted in a behind the scenes video. “You have to communicate in a nutshell her depth of feeling, something that connects very powerfully the messages of the Sì woman. It’s a very creative and fluid environment in which we were all working.”

Cate also praised the cinematographers she worked with for their creativity and accomplishment in storytelling. “So the idea of making this little film about the Sì woman who is complicated in a glorious way, intelligent, adventurous, graceful, has been a real gift for me creatively,” she smiled.

“The Sì woman is quite aspirational for me. The Sì woman, and I hope I have this in common with her, is saying yes to life really. I think that’s a wonderful thing to say.”

Cate is known for her glowing complexion, and at 46 looks much younger than her years. She recently revealed that getting a good night’s rest is her top tip when it comes to skincare.

"Sleep!" she smiled to when asked how creates the lit-from-within glow. "Which I am a little bit deprived of right now. Also, you know when someone has a migraine or a headache and they haven’t done anything to their face, but their whole face constricts? I think that anything you can do to remove stress will give you a better glow. That’s the number one answer."
