Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett's credibility as a style icon has been questioned by her own husband, who has likened the BABEL star to Hollywood veteran Burt Reynolds. Dressed in grey, checked trousers by designer Alexander McQueen and a matching waistcoat over a light blue shirt, her writer partner ANDREW UPTON compared Blanchett's look to that of the SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT actor. She recalls, "Just before I left this morning, he said, 'You look fantastic. Dressed like that, you remind me of someone.' "I said, 'Oh really? Who? I was waiting for this enormous compliment. He thought for a bit and said, 'Burt Reynolds.'"
