Cate Blanchett was the guest of honor at the Vogue Australia 50th Anniversary Dinner and she’s also graces 4 covers of their commemorative issue which goes on sale this Wednesday.

Vogue Australia editor-in-chief Kirstie Clements opted to capture the great Cate via illustration instead of photography.

David Downtown captured the actress in four separate poses wearing looks by Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Martin Grant and Armani for the quartet of covers.

As much as I like this idea, it would’ve had major goosebumps had the images been photographic.

Cate picked the designers herself knowing they’d be the ones to bring out the best in her, but I can’t help but feel this was a missed opportunity to capture her at her best.

See the rest of the covers in illustration below.
