Cate Blanchett loves men's fashion

Los Angeles, Aug 20 (IANS) Actress Cate Blanchett says she used to love wearing men's suits, and adds that she loves mixing masculine and feminine looks together.

"It's hard to describe my own style. I think it's probably quite eclectic. Even in high school, I wore men's suits. I was always in men's jackets, men's pants, which I'd get my mother to adjust," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Blanchett as saying.

"Ultimately, it's about great tailoring, but I love the mix of masculine and feminine, playing with traditional men's silhouettes," she added.

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" actress also likes to wear fragrances.

"Fragrance is such a mood changer, because it is so full of memory and desire and aspiration. That's why people purchase fragrance, they think, 'I'd love to walk through that door'. It transports me backwards, but it can also change the way I feel," said Blanchett.

"My mother wore a lot of fragrance. She chopped and changed. I'm just realising that people inherently have a natural smell. I notice it when my children come out of the shower," she added.
