See Cate Blanchett's changing looks throughout the years.
After graduating from Australia's National Institute of Dramatic Art and winning the Newcomer Award from the Sydney Theatre Critics Circle, the redheaded Blanchett began doing TV work.

The young actress displayed her natural talent in Elizabeth and her natural beauty with swept-back hair and understated makeup.
The star of The Talented Mr. Ripley and An Ideal Husband lightened up her layered cut. Blanchett has described her natural color as "a swamp-water blond."
She donned a dark wig on the red carpet after shaving her head for Heaven. "She's got a box of wigs," hairstylist Danilo has revealed of the trendsetting star.
She bared her buzz cut. Said makeup artist Jeanine Lobell: "People thought of her as retro, but then she cut her hair off and looked supermodern."
Having just given birth to son Dashiell John, the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers star battled blotchy skin. "A friend introduced me to SK-II, a Japanese skin-care line," she said of her return to luminosity.
The Veronica Guerin lead colored her angled bob a chic cinnamon hue to play Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator.
Following the birth of her second son, Roman Robert, Blanchett sported a wash-and-wear bob and starred in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
The actress wore retro waves and bold pink lipstick to accept her first Oscar for The Aviator.
Nominated for Notes on a Scandal, Blanchett attended the Academy Awards in an updo that made the most of her mane's texture: "My hair is naturally curly."
Pregnant with third child, Ignatius Martin, the glowing star (and double nominee for Elizabeth: The Golden Age and I'm Not There) hit the Oscars in a low-key look. "I'm quite minimalist about makeup," she told InStyle. "I get my lashes tinted so that I don't have to wear mascara."
The Ponyo voice was understated perfection in a loose pompadour and subtle tints. "She has the most beautiful canvas," said makeup artist Dotti. "Her complexion is polished, refined and never covered with heavy makeup."
Blanchett brought out her cheekbones with a short crop.
For the premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Blanchett adorned her bob with a simple barrette.
