Cate Blanchett was shot by Annie Leibovitz for the December 2009 issue of Vogue US looking like a goddess or a beautiful Oscar statue wearing a golden strapless Donna Karan gown.

The rest of the editorial sees the actress wearing Armani Prive, Oscar de la Renta and the same Valentino dress we’ve seen on Victoria Beckham’s Elle October 2009 editorial and Rose Byrne on the red carpet at the 2009 Emmy Awards.

If you are having a touch of de ja vu looking at Cate’s editorial, that’s because it’s very very similar to the editorial which was also shot by Annie Leibovitz for the February 2009 issue of Vanity Fair.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On career choices: “I’m not very cautious or careful. It’s always been more about having a variety of experiences than any planned trajectory.”

On her family: “When the boys aren’t playing with friends, they can usually be found playing backstage. ‘They’re always engaged in the family business, so to speak.”
