Real Women Superheroes - Cate Blanchett

Lucille Ball made advances for women in television, Billie Holiday made advances in Blues, Cate Blanchett may not make political advances in terms of feminism, but the film roles she selects are ALWAYS kick butt women.

Austrailian Catherine Elise Blanchett was born in 1969. In the latest Robin Hood, she is Maid Marion, a strong, independent woman, protecting her father in law, and fighting alongside Robin in defense of her country. She is Galadriel, one of the most powerful fairies in The Lord of the Rings. She is Katherine Hepburn in the Aviator. She is a desperate mother who sets out into the wilderness to save her daughter who is kidnapped after the death of her husband, and most famously, she is Queen Elizabeth, undoubtedly one of the strongest, most powerful women in the History of royalty.
Cate Blanchett is strong, gorgeous, and soooooo classy!

I usually try to post some items for sale related to the superhero of the day, but I couldn't decide what to post for Cate because her roles are so diverse. Instead, I'm posting some classy, fun clothes I'm in love with :)

All of these clothes and shoes are available at

And these shoes aren't classy, but they sure are perfect!
