One of my favorite actresses, Cate Blanchett, is featured in a captivating photoshoot by the legendary Annie Leibovitz in the February 2009 issue of Vanity Fair magazine.
In the shoot, Cate Blanchett is styled by Michael Roberts as Cleopatra in a John Galliano gown. She also channels a Chekhov heroine backstage in a sweeping blood red Nina Ricci gown.
Implications - The huge contrast between her surroundings and her clothing makes for a very interesting set of photographs. It almost dims down her overly-dressed style, posing in what looks like a very old theater. Cate Blanchett is brimming with confidence that you can't help but smile at as you browse through the graceful editorial.
