After 27 years of dating, Tina Turner took that leap of faith and at 73-years-old finally walked down the aisle with her beau, German music producer Erwin Bach. Before running off to Italy for their honeymoon, Tina looked like she seriously hasn’t aged a day since 1985 and stunned in a black and green Armani dress that she paired up with sheer leggings and strappy heels for the ceremony at her Algonquin estate overlooking Lake Zurich in Kuesnacht, Switzerland.
Cheering her on from the crowd were friends like Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King, who were excited to watch Tina get married for the second time, and Tina let Hello! Magazine snap flicks of her big day. She also talked to them about how she found her dress and what it’s like truly being in love.
I thought, ‘I gotta have that, even if I never wear it.’ Then I thought, ‘I know, that will be my wedding dress.’
On Her Relationship With Erwin
“It’s that happiness that people talk about, when you wish for nothing, when you can finally take a deep breath and say, ‘Everything is good.’ It’s a wonderful place to be.”
Tina and Erwin’s romance started after they met in London at an industry party. Tina married Ike Turner back in 1962 but left that abusive marriage in 1976.
Now, if someone were to ask Miss Tina “What’s love got to do with it?” now, she’d say “Everything.”
