The 48-year-old accepted the Style Icon Award and took the time to make her speech about praising women who aren't afraid to be themselves. She made it clear they deserve better than to be constantly watching their own (and each other's) backs. "My aunties were Black Panthers", she says.

Cate Blanchett and Zendaya pointed out that fashion means more than just clothes. "I mean, you know we all like looking sexy but it doesn't mean we want to f-k you", she said. "No one says to [former White House chief strategist] Steve Bannon, 'You look like a bag of trash".

During her acceptance speech, the Oscar victor made a humorous comparison in order to make a stellar point about the way women present themselves.

Cate Blanchett is a red carpet pro, but that doesn't mean she hasn't experienced being judged by her outfit choices, whether by an internet troll leaving harsh comments or a man assuming a revealing look is an invitation for sexual advances.
