Sneak Peek! Giorgio Armani Sketches Of Cate Blanchett's Wardrobe In Hanna

You guys know about Hanna, right? As in, the movie that opens this weekend that's directed by Joe Wright with Saoirse (pronounced: Surr-Sha) Ronan and Cate Blanchett. The one where (very mild spoiler alert) Hanna is a baby-Bourne-Identity-hard-core-assassin, and Cate is the scarlet-haired, power-suited spy hunting her down? Anyway, Eric Bana is in it, and he plays Saoirse's dad and trains her like CUHRAZY in this tundra, which, yeah, ridic hot father figure FIGHTING in the snow? SOLD. BUT the thing you may not know, the fashion Easter egg that really gets us spoiling to get in line at midnight, is that none other than THE MISTER GIORGIO ARMANI designed Cate's elegant, restrained, and menacingly beautiful suits and coats. And we have sketches!

"Working with Cate Blanchett, on and off the screen, has always been a highlight for me," notes Mr. Armani. "She embodies the perfect combination of consummate actor and world-class fashion icon.” Man, can you imagine the conversations? An Academy Award winner with a sartorial LEGEND discussing hems and fabric? Also, do you see how the classically feminine, narrow shawl collar (so so so Armani) softens the harsh ladyboss-in-the-field-of-espionage hair? While being so precise that she still looks totally, quietly scary?

Uuuuuuum. Also, this makes PERFECT sense. Giorgio Armani created the wardrobe for GATTACA, which was an exacting study of clean lines with the most gloriously subtle detailing delineating characters, which are intended, upon a cursory examination, to appear as though they're wearing uniforms when in actuality, GOD IS IN THE DETAILS telling us everything. God, here, of course, being Giorgio Armani. Wow. Beautiful cashmere abounds.
