Oprah Winfrey, O, The Oprah Magazine

It's hard to believe that O, The Oprah Magazine is 15 years old!

Oprah Winfrey celebrated the momentous occasion with, what else, a cover shoot showing her looking possibly more stunning than ever before.

The incomparable Ms. O donned a custom Xscape blue Swarovski crystal-adorned gown with sheer cutouts, Leviev earrings and sultry smoky eye that made her famous features pop.

The media mogul wanted to go full-blown glam for the special anniversary cover, and she did just that!

"For the past 15 years, we've been able to fulfill on a monthly basis, the original dream for this magazine. The original dream is that it would be a manual or a guide to meet women exactly where they are in their lives and to help them elevate and exalt their lives in such a way that they could literally live their best lives," she told the mag.

"I just don't know a magazine that better fits woman where they are in their lives without the expectation that they have to be anything other than who they really are. Our magazine is really about enhancing who you are, not saying you have to be like or do like anybody else."

The 61-year-old also dished about her favorite cover shoots over the years, saying, "The covers are always great experiences. I remember being in a waterfall in Puerto Rico with my hair wet and my clothes wet and I remember feeling like, 'Oh! So this is the glamorous life of doing magazine covers!'"

And it makes perfect sense that the anniversary cover would feature none other than the founder herself, but even she joked, "I wonder who's on it!" Luckily for us, it's Oprah.
