Vogue Australia loves Cate Blanchett. No wonder that the Australian fashion bible turns to its favorite face in such uncertain times. The magazine welcomes the established actress to her double edition in June / July 2020 (three years after her last appearance). Cate partnered with her renowned Australian artist Fiona Lowry on the other side of the world to create a truly calm painting made from a photo for the cover photo.
Our forum members were certainly not thrilled with the cover. "Vogue Australia has turned into one of the most sophisticated editions," said MON when the cover appeared.
"Edwina McCann is so lost. She thinks she is a god. This magazine is Bullsh * t, ”said Caioherrero.
"I find it senseless. When painting a cover, it is better to opt for stylized anatomy / graphics than for realism. It always looks like a badly edited photo, ”criticized avonlea002.

Benn98 was not a great admirer: “It's pretty disappointing, really everything. Layout, picture and this stupid pose. "
"My God, how do you get this painting and go, yes, that's our cover ?!" a startled Miss Dalloway wondered.
"Of all the artists they could have walked with, they chose Fiona Lowry, whose sepia painting style doesn't fit the Vogue brand a bit," emphasized dodencebt.
"As much as I love Cate Blanchett and how she is the perfect candidate for an Australian Vogue cover, I find the result extremely questionable. This is ridiculous compared to David Downton's illustrated covers for the 50th anniversary edition," added vogue28 added.
