Better late than never: Meryl is finally featured on the cover of the mag — and takes the title as the oldest covergirl ‘Vogue’ has ever had!

Meryl Streep might have played the role of Vogue‘s Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour in The Devil Wears Prada, but she was never featured on the magazine — until now! Shot by Annie Leibovitz, the 62-year-old star looks flawless in her signature look, a collared shirt and full skirt, and takes the title of the oldest covergirl to ever grace the front of the mag. Inside, she talks about her upcoming role as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady — and admits she thought her career was over when she turned 40. Obviously she was very wrong!

Meryl says that the year she turned 40, she was offered three separate roles to play a witch. She thought it meant ladies in her age group were considered “grotesque on some level.” The talented actress told her hubby that it meant “It’s over,” but that clearly wasn’t the case!

What do you think of Meryl’s cover?
