The cover says it all: "Simply The Best!" Which is why we can't believe this April 2013 issue of Vogue magazine marks Tina Turner's first time gracing the glossy. Finally!
The legendary singer is seen rocking her signature honey blonde-highlighted hair, a silky navy blouse and what appears to be a black skirt for Vogue's German edition, which was shot by Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer and styled by Nicola Knels. We would have loved to see Tina's showstopping legs framed by some fringe, but maybe she's flaunting them for the editorial feature inside the issue.

And let's talk about the fact Tina is 73 years old and looks like she just stepped on the stage at the "The Ed Sullivan Show" in 1970 to perform "Proud Mary." Fashionista.com points out that the age-defying beauty might be the oldest Vogue cover star ever--snagging the title from Meryl Streep who covered American Vogue last year at the age of 62.
Either way, we're just thrilled to see the Queen of Rock-n-Roll in all her glory. Although, it's a bit embarrassing that an international Vogue publication is celebrating one of our homeland icons, who's career spans over a half a century and could out dress most of the cover stars we've seen. What gives, American Vogue? Let's not let this happen again. Thanks!
