Barbra Streisand flaunts some leg, at 74, on the cover of W, shot by Steven Meisel.

In the profile by Lynn Hirschberg, she identifies her first crush as Marlon Brando:

Since I was 13, Marlon Brando was my favorite. I saw him in Guys and Dolls—and that was it. Interestingly, there was a period of 27 years when I didn't sing in public, because of stage fright, and when I finally did, I created a scenario in which I sang “I'll Know” with Marlon Brando in Guys and Dolls. I put myself in his movie! I invited Brando to my house to see the piece, and he made me take him through my entire show. We then watched a movie together. It was wonderful: He was my idol, my biggest crush.

Of that crazy, sheer pantsuit she wore to accept her first Oscar, she notes:

That night, in my dressing room, I was choosing between two different outfits. One was lovely, but very conservative. And then there was the pantsuit with plastic sequins. I had no idea that when the lights hit that outfit, it would become transparent! I wanted a white collar and cuffs, which it had, and I wore my hair under my chin, because I thought to myself, I'm going to win two Oscars in my lifetime, and I'll be more conservative next time.
