Looks like Oprah Winfrey has made yet another dream come true! Designer Prabal Gurung, who launched his namesake collection this year, got the coveted chance to dress the star for her landmark December cover for O, The Oprah Magazine which she shares with fellow talk-show host Ellen Degeneres. “There have always been dreams and milestones that I have set for myself as a designer,” Gurung tells PEOPLE. “Dressing Oprah Winfrey has always and truly been one of them.” Outfitted in an elegant red gown (seen here in an exclusive sketch), Oprah stands side-by-side with a white-suit-clad Ellen for the festive shoot. “[Oprah is] a role model, a mentor, a leader and a constant source of inspiration,” he says of working with the star. But the designer wasn’t the only one who found himself dazzled during the shoot. Oprah herself was struck by Ellen’s composure. “When Ellen arrived at the photo shoot for our cover, I didn’t have to ask her how she was doing: it showed on her face,” Oprah says in a release. “She radiated the kind of peace and satisfaction that comes only when you’re living at your highest potential.” Check out more from the issue when it hits newsstands Nov. 12 or go to oprah.com now, including features an in-depth interview with Ellen about life with wife Portia DeRossi — and her new gig as an American Idol judge.–Kristin Larson
