Go Meryl! With Meryl Streep’s most recent film depicting the life of former Prime Minister of Britain Margaret Thatcher – The Iron Lady – set to be released on January 13, 2012, and the Oscar buzz already swirling for her performance, it is little surprise that Anna Wintour choose the iconic and talented Academy Award winning actress to grace the first cover of 2012 for Vogue. However, Streep is the oldest (62) model to be on the cover which is reason for even more applause.
Photographed by seasoned veteran Annie Leibovitz, the issue is set to hit newsstands soon and sure to be a cover to provoke great conversation. (View a trailer for The Iron Lady here.)
