Each year, W Magazine releases an issue celebrating art and fashion. For their December/January edition, Cate Blanchett graces the cover and features in the most incredible photoshoot.

Speaking to Lynn Hirschberg, Cate spoke about the importance of art, costume, and fashion in her films, like her upcoming role in Todd Haynes' Carol.

Set in New York in the 1950s, the titular character, Carol, wears this luxurious mink coat, which Cate described as "perfect" for the role.

“The mink was old and it kept falling apart. Between takes, Sandy Powell, the costume designer, would sew it back together by hand. I considered changing coats, but when you find the right thing, you know immediately: That coat was the one to tell Carol’s story. It was perfect.”
