American rock icon, known as the Queen of Rock & Roll, has become the oldest ever cover star for the international fashion magazine Vogue in a new shoot by Swiss photographers Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer for their German edition. At 73, Turner makes a stylish "cover girl" in a blue gown by Armani, and styling by Nicola Knels.

Until now, Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep held the record as the oldest ever Vogue magazine cover star, at 62, when she graced the cover of the US Vogue's January 2012 issue.

Born Anna Mae Bullock in Nutbush, Tenn., Turner began a successful musical career with her guitarist ex-husband Ike Turner. As a solo artist she went on to win eight Grammy awards and has sold over 200 million albums and singles worldwide.
