Vogue Australia Turns Fifty

By  August 03, 2009

Cate Blanchett is gracing the cover of Vogue Australia for the commemorative September issue celebrating its 50th birthday. Rather than the standard glamour shot, the magazine is coming out with four cover versions that feature portraits of the Aussie actress drawn by illustrator David Downton.

In addition to the gorgeous covers, the September issue will also include a spread of swimsuits created especially for them (by Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior, and more), as well as a spread featuring Australian models Catherine McNeil and Abbey Lee Kershaw. Sounds pretty amazing!

Here’s a sneak peek at two of the four covers:
