Why celebrate your birthday by just blowing out a candle when you can have a blow-out magazine cover? Oprah Winfrey will fête the ten-year anniversary of her eponymous magazine with a special cover featuring the star in a glittering custom gown designed by Isaac Mizrahi. Shot by photographer Ruven Afanador, the cover of O, the Oprah Magazine‘s 10th anniversary issue in May features the media mogul posing with a towering, flower-bedecked cake, dressed in a sequined lilac dress with three-quarter sleeves that is a re-imagining of a spring 2010 Mizrahi look just for her. “I wanted Oprah’s look to radiate celebration,” says O creative director Adam Glassman, who collaborated with the designer on Oprah’s cover look. While the daytime talk show empress has announced the end of her show in 2011, fans will be pleased to know that the shoot ended with a toast from Oprah, proclaiming, “Here’s to the next ten years!” To celebrate the 10th anniversary of O, The Oprah Magazine with Oprah herself and her pals during their N.Y.C. celebration weekend, visit www.oprah.com/oturns10 for info and limited tickets, and pick up a copy of the magazine when it hits newsstands on April 13th. — Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

Congrats to O!

Wow I love you in lilac, it is a personal favorite color of mine as well as the flower. My childhood bedroom was lilac. Can’t believe it’s 10 years already. I must admit I’ve only ever bought 1 issue. But I rarely miss an episode of the tv show, I am soooooo going to miss my daily dose of Oprah, you have done so many informational, educational and entertaining shows.

How can anybody be envious of somebody whose happiness and success do NOT belittle theirs has always baffled me!
I’m not a fan (and I’m not a teenager, though my post may seem a bit cheesy), but the woman achieved something which she shouldn’t be embarrassed to celebrate.
Money IS everything, no one can convince me otherwise… but Oprah really still has (or, at least, acts perfectly) that human warmth which too many people have lost!

ENOUGH with the air brushing..her face looks skinny and it doesn’t match the rest of here body and we ALL KNOW how heavy she has gotten, it is evident everyone day on her show..why does the magazine try to hind it…CRAZY!

Cam’t stand her. People act like she is the second coming. The screaming, the buying of her products, really people, get some intelligence. And she just looks worse and worse every month. Squeezing into that tight dress does not fool us, we still know she weight almost 300 pounds. That magazine is fine if your in the 100K a year income bracket , otherwise its
just a silly rag for people with to much money

10 years and I have yet to buy her magazine. Maybe in the next 10.

She deserves to be “full of herself” have you done even 1% of what this woman has done for others, the world, and animals. She cares for everyone no matter color, nationality… If she wants to show off a little, all the more to her because a lot of people in the world would be a lot worse off or dead if it weren’t for Oprah.

Wow…10 years? Seriously? Time flies.

Pink is too cool for Oprah. She would be so much better in gold or copper.

I would like to purchase an anniversary copy of O. What month was it, or when will it be out? I have been looking for it and have been unable to find the magazine. I tape Oprah everyday, I enjoy Suze Orman, Dr. Oz. and Dr. Phil also and I saw them the day they were on tv advertising the anniversary issue and I would love to have one and would gladly send a check. Thank you.
