Dame Judi Dench has become British Vogue’s oldest cover star, appearing on the June issue of the magazine.
Posing in a floral Dolce & Gabbana high-necked trench coat, the Oscar-winning actress is styled with minimal makeup with an image from a photo shoot that took place just before the UK went into lockdown.
Inside the magazine, Dench is interviewed about her experience self-isolating at her home in Surrey, saying: “What is a good thing is that it has made people aware of the predicament of others who are completely alone. If a great deal of kindness comes out of this, then that will be a plus.”
She also complains of her appearance in the Cats movie, describing the CGI as making her look like a “battered, mangy old cat.” Dame Judi also insists that she will not be retiring from acting any time soon.
In recent weeks, Dench has become somewhat of a social media star, featuring in her grandson’s TikTok videos and her daughter’s Twitter feed.
