Let's take a quick look at the extraordinary life this woman has led.

Judi launched her acting career in the world of theater.

Born and raised in York, England, as a young woman Judi made the big move to London to study at the Central School of Speech Training and Dramatic Art.

It was here where she would give her first critically acclaimed performance.

Her portrayal as Ophelia in the 1957 Old Vic production of Hamlet, won her a tremendous amount of praise from the critics, therefore putting her on the radar.

Over the next 2 decades, Judi would go on to perform in several theatre productions...

And her performance as Lady Macbeth in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Macbeth earned her a Laurence Olivier Award from the Society of West End Theatre Managers.

Her work in the arts was truly remarkable.

And, in 1970, Judi was created Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), which was then advanced to Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in 1988.

Yet, throughout all of this, Judi had continuously dabbled in and out of the world of television.

Judi's on-screen debut was in the 1964 The Third Secret, which was shortly followed by performances in other movies such as Four in the Morning, and A Midsummer Night's Dream.

But most of you will probably recognize her best from her role in the James Bond franchise.

Judi portrayed the role of M, the Head of the Secret Intelligence Service, and, pretty much, James Bond's boss.

Judi replaced Robert Brown in the role when she joined the cast in 1995...

And people evidently loved his female replacement, because she continued to portray the character across several Bond movies up until 2012.

And other movies under her belt include...

Murder on the Orient Express, Pride & Prejudice, Roald Dhal's Essio Trot... Oh, and Cats, weirdly. The list could go on.

Did I mention that this woman has done it all?

At the age of eighty-five, there aren't many stones that have been left unturned in Judi's life.

But recently, she has ticked off another remarkable feat...

via: Getty

Because, this month, Judi has broken a record in the world of modeling.

Now, despite her undeniable good looks...

via: Getty

And despite the fact that she looks incredible for her age, Judi has never dabbled much in modeling.

It is one of the star-studded industries that Judi has, over the years, left firmly alone.

via: Getty

Because who has time for modeling when you're such a celebrated actress?

But, now, Judi has made her modeling debut.

And it is on the cover of the mogul of fashion.

Introducing, Vogue's latest cover girl.
