Dench it appears in the June issue of the fashion magazine and Edward Enninful, editor in chief, hailed her on Monday as “one of the nation’s most loved citizens” in an Instagram post.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am to see Dame Judi Dench, the unassailable queen of stage and screen, star of her first Vogue cover at the age of 85,” he wrote.

Dench was photographed for the June issue in early March, before a blockade was introduced in the UK.

“I’m sure I feel like everyone else, so unprecedented times are difficult enough to understand,” Dench told the magazine.

“The good thing is that it made people aware of the situation of others who are completely alone,” he added. “If a great kindness comes out of this, then it will be an advantage.”

Dench became a kind of online sensation during the coronavirus block, starring a viral video published by his daughter in March.

In the interview, he talks about life in his Surrey home and his dislike of the word “retirement”.

Dench is wearing Dolce Gabbana in the cover photo, which was photographed by Nick Knight.

Vogue has been around for over 125 years, with its British edition launched in 1916.

There have been many attempts by Vogue – and it’s its British counterpart – to apparently challenge conventional beauty standards.

However, readers criticized the brand for still remaining within the narrow parameters of the fashion industry in terms of body shape and skin tone, although it has a recently diversified approach.

Enninful took over the leadership of British Vogue in August 2017.

The former Ghanaian-born model, raised in London, is the first male and non-white publisher in the history of the magazine, and has led an attempt to make the magazine more diverse.

Enninful put the black English model Adwoa Aboah on the cover of her first ever issue in December 2017 and made Halima Aden the first hijabi woman to appear on the magazine cover in 2018.
