Then and Now: Veronica Lake and Cate Blanchett

Just recently I've realized how similar two of my favorite actresses, Veronica Lake and Cate Blanchett, look to one another. Cate has the magical ability to transform herself in every new photo shoot or film that she is in, morphing into Grace Kelly and Marlene Dietrich on the red carpet, Ingrid Bergman (superbly done in The Good German), Katharine Hepburn (to Oscar-winning perfection in The Aviator), and Bob Dylan (in I'm Not There). 
Cate's talent is matched with rare grace and poise that is reminiscent of a time in Hollywood's Golden Age when femme fatales like Veronica ruled the screen. 

With pale blonde locks styled in Veronica's eponymous peek-a-boo hairstyle, both women look like the cat's meow in their subtly sexy 1930s makeup and shimmery, sparkly gowns

Cate is the best in the business when it comes to portraying famous figures of years past - whether Queen Elizabeth I or the queen of the silver screen, Veronica Lake, she's always perfectly cast. Here, Cate mimics Veronica's distinctive kittenish slouch

Thank you L-Ann! Cate and Veronica are both such iconic parts of cinematic history, even though they are known for very different genres of film.
