Cate Blanchett for Vogue Australia April 2015





She is unequivocally a style icon despite persistent denials claiming otherwise.

And even with her hands full, Hollywood star Cate Blanchett, who has just adopted a baby daughter to add to her brood, still manages to look impeccable.

The 45-year-old Oscar winner donned a striking silk headpiece by milliner Rosie Boylan and vintage statement earrings from Harlequin Market | HQM and posed in an array of designer threads as she opened up to Vogue Australia about the beauty of children. Styled by fashion director for Vogue Australia, Christine Centenera.

On the other hand, a friend whos an investment banker with three grown children says that family and career are absolutely mutually supportive and inspiring [and] that she cant imagine her life any other way. I loved this, because deep down thats how I feel, too. I feel that the question of: How do you do it? sometimes contains the retrograde implication that to be working is necessarily to be neglecting ones children.

So, without asking you: How do you do it?, can you talk about how you feel about these roles in your life and how they feed one another? (For my part Id say that I feel that my children have expanded my world in more ways than I could ever name. But just one of those is that they teach me more about human nature than I otherwise could have known, to say nothing of my own limitations ...)

Blanchett replies: Yup, agreed. Children certainly teach one about compromise. I think before having children the idea of compromise rubbed shoulders with weakness or deception in some way.


Children are spirited, passionate, political, demanding. They are also heartbreaking. They constantly extend parents and so parents are constantly confronted with their failures, dont you think? Id rather presently live life this way than not.
