There's grace, and then there's Cate Blanchett grace. Only the 159-time award winner, 343-time nominated actress and director could figure out a chic way to wear something as uninspiring as a face mask.
At the 77th Venice Film Festival, the first high-profile, in-person event celebrating cinema since the arrival of COVID-19, Blanchett demonstrated how to make a face covering look perfectly red carpet-ready. In white, wide-leg trousers, white Clergerie loafers, a blazer, bulky black bag and sunglasses by Valentino Garavani, and white button-down shirt, Blanchett protected her airways with a gaiter-style face covering that's wildly popular among Amazon shoppers who swear it's more versatile and comfortable than traditional face masks.
But, far from looking like she tacked the essential accessory onto an outfit last minute, the around-neck style of the covering was tucked into her crisp white shirt to look like a turtleneck layered intentionally beneath. While Amazon shoppers loved the affordable style for its cooling abilities during summer, it's clear that it will also be useful for bundling up in the cooling months.
As this isn't a typical face mask style made for the explicit purpose of preventing the spread of coronavirus, it's important for wearers to fold the fabric so that it creates a double-ply protective layer, as recommended by the CDC. If you look closely, it appears that Blanchett is abiding by that recommendation. Shop the gaiter-style face masks Amazon shoppers (and Cate Blanchett) love, starting at just $4 a piece, below.
