For the opening ceremony of the 71st Cannes Film Festival, the Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett wore a Giorgio Armani Privé gown.

The actress, who will preside over the Film Festival jury, chose to revise a gown that she wore to the Golden Globes in 2014.

In revisiting a gown already worn on the red carpet Cate Blanchett made a symbolic gesture towards the idea of more responsible consumerism, where clothes are not so frequently discarded.

The long black bustier gown, with a deep cut on the back and slightly flared lines, is tailored with crinoline lace and crystal-embroidered tulle.

For the opening ceremony Martin Scorsese and Chinese actor Wang Jia also wore a Giorgio Armani tuxedo.
