Cate can be seen with slicked hair (Very Leo), dressed in a suit jacket, white shirt and bow tie.

The only nod to her femininity is her beautiful face, and her piercing eyes highlighted with kohl liner.

The Oscar-winning actress, who was born in Melbourne, fronts the Powerful Australia issue of the men's version of Vogue alongside Baz Luhrmann, who also got his own cover.

For the first time L'Uomo Vogue is dedicating a whole edition to Australia. The special edition, the idea of Franca Sozzani, Editor in Chief of L'Uomo Vogue and Vogue Italia and UN Ambassador of Goodwill, is a celebration of modern Australian society through the eyes of L'Uomo Vogue.

The magazine explains: "The pages of the issue feature actors and directors, artists, Olympians, musicians, and costume and fashion designers – stand-out individuals whose work has helped to project an image of Australian success beyond the borders of the country itself. Each talent has been shot by leading L'Uomo Vogue photographers, creating a series of images collected here."

Cate chats to the mag about her and Australian screenwriter hubby Andrew Upton's decision to move back to Australia, settling in Sydney, from England in 2006.

According to the Daily Mail, the Blue Jasmine actress said: "We were, after all, tourists in England. The two of us were born in Australia, where we have our roots...

"Australia has such resources to use that my husband and I decided to go back and reinvent ourselves... It was important for us to recover our history, and from that to shape the future. It has been an extraordinary experience."

Anyway, back to the cover. C'mon, how cool does she look?
