tina turnerTina Turner is the oldest woman ever to appear on the cover of Vogue! Guess how old Tina Turner is.

She is 73. She looks absolutely amazing. I am saddened only by the fact that I sincerely doubt I will look that amazing at 73. She is, however, a surprising choice for the cover of Vogue Germany, which, as Fashionista points out, generally prefers younger models.

The Telegraph reports that:

The Simply The Best singer was shot by photography duo Claudia Knoepfel & Stefan Indlekofer and styled by Nicola Knels in midnight blue gown by Armani.

Since we’re playing guessing games, guess how many other issues of Vogue she has been on the cover of?

Zero. Which frankly, I am shocked by, because I thought Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome alone would be enough to make that work.

In the future, I hope all the issues are just pictures of Tina Turner staring majestically out at people. A commenter at The Fashion Spot summed it up wonderfully, saying:

“I literally had to take a second look at the thread title to see if I had the right person hahah, what a glorious surprise,” Mrs Dalloway wrote. “She looks wonderful, its great to see someone her age being on the cover, exuding grace, and being natural, there is an easiness to this image, love it [sic].”
