17 years earlier, she starred as Lady Gertrude Chiltern in the 1999 film An Ideal Husband that is based on the 1895 play of the same name by Oscar Wilde.

Released in the United States on June 30, 1999, Cate was 30 years at the time. Born on May 14, 1969, in Ivanhoe, Australia, she was 29 years old when filming An Ideal Husband in England during the summer of 1998.

For the 2016 SK-II #ChangeDestiny Forum held at the Andaz Hotel, the then 46-year-old actress made quite an impression in the form-fitting frock from Antonio Berardi’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection.

The plain but classy number had a fitted waist, tulip-inspired cap sleeves, a zip detail on the side, and a straight hem that fell a few inches below her knees. It showed off her slender figure excellently.

Cate kept her jewelry to a bare minimum, adding extra height to her statuesque frame with a pair of silver pumps.

She completed her look by wearing her golden tresses in loose waves and sported smokey eye-makeup and coral pink lipstick.

The Benjamin Button star looked polished in this ensemble. Her mirrored leather metallic silver pumps, which featured pointed toes and about four-inch heels, further glammed up her look.
