Judi Dench Becomes Oldest Woman to Grace Vogue Cover

Making history at the age of 85, the ‘Victoria and Abdul’ star has teamed up with photographer Nick Knight for the publication’s June issue before the coronavirus lockdown was imposed.

AceShowbiz -Dame Judi Dench has made history as the oldest star to grace the cover of Vogue at the age of 85.

The veteran actress was photographed by Nick Knight for the June cover of the British edition of the publication before the coronavirus lockdown kicked in. The shoot also marks Dench’s first cover for the iconic magazine.

In the accompanying feature, Dench reveals how she’s been spending her time during the pandemic.
