Dame Judi Dench Becomes British Vogue’s Oldest Cover Star at 85.

85-year-old Oscar-winning actress, Dame Judi Dench was photographed for British Vogue Magazine’s June issue before lockdown, but in the interview talked about self-isolating at home in Surrey. She said she hopes “a great deal of kindness” will come out of the crisis.

Judi Dench is pictured wearing Dolce & Gabbana in the cover shot, which was photographed by Nick Knight. Vogue, which has been around for more than 125 years, with its British edition launching in 1916 has had many attempts by Vogue — and it’s British counterpart — to seemingly challenge conventional beauty standards.

“Judi is the oldest person ever to grace our cover, and she brings a great perspective and a message of hope from her own quarantine in the English countryside. Ever modest, the dame is not a fan of the term national treasure. But treasure her we do. Now more than ever.” said Edward Enninful, Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue.
