Everything old is new again. Just ask Cate Blanchett.

The award-winning actress commanded the red carpet at the 2023 SAG Awards on Feb. 26, wearing a black, skintight sequined dress by Armani Privé that featured a plunging neckline that was delicately covered with intricate lace detailing. 

But it turns out Cate's daring look wasn't exactly fresh off the runway.

In fact, the 53-year-old—who was nominated for her leading role in Tár (See the complete winners list here)—has recycled the little black dress not once, not twice but three times. She first wore the design at the 2014 Golden Globes, which originally featured a billowing ballgown structure, a high-neck collar and all-over lace with intricate embroidery. She recycled the look again at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival

For the 2023 SAG Awards, however, Cate added an edgy twist to the hot number by re-shaping it into a form-fitting style and creating a deep, chest-baring neckline.

This isn't the first time Cate has re-purposed a past look at a major—she did so just a week before the SAG Awards.

While attending the 2023 BAFTAs on Feb. 19, she was the definition of chic as she stunned in a sleek black gown by Maison Margiela, which she first wore to the 2015 Oscars. She styled the looked with layers of statement necklaces that were also made of sustainable and recycled materials.

Cate's fashion statements are just one of the ways she's practicing sustainability, a direction she's been vocal about in recent years. She even created a podcast, Climate of Change, with her friend Danny Kennedy, a clean-technology entrepreneur.

Of course, the actress wasn't the only celebrity to wow on the red carpet at the SAG Awards. Keep scrolling to see all of the fabulous looks below.
