Q&A: Which celebrity do you think has the best skin?

As I am slightly skin obsessed this weekend I thought I would continue the theme.

The beautiful Cate Blanchett

For me, the winner would undoubtedly be Australian Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett. She always looks immaculate and the radiance of her skin is evident in every photo of her. It is no surprise that SK-II wanted her to represent the brand.

Cate Blanchett for SK-II
In a decade where tanning has been one of the biggest trends, I am thrilled to see that with the success of the Twilight films and the popularity of vampires in general, pale skin is now something to be embraced rather than covered in fake tan. I think Cate Blanchett and other young actresses like Kiera Knightley and Kristen Stewart really show how beautiful pale skin can be, as well as being a great advertisement for sunscreen.


  1. Cate Blanchett has beautiful skin, absolutely luminous (I didn't get on at all with SKII skincare though, such a shame!) I think Jessica Alba has lovely skin too, it has such a nice glow to it.

  2. Hi Grace, thanks for leaving my first comment! I've never tried that brand but I am wary of ultra expensive skincare. I saved for ages to buy the gel version of Creme de la Mer a few years ago, expecting it to be the holy grail of moisturisers, and it really disappointed. I guess there is sadly no one size fits all with skincare. Unfortunately, trial by error is very costly!
