Oprah Winfrey graces the cover of British Vogue


Oprah Winfrey is the cover star of the August issue of British Vogue.

On the cover, the media icon wears a custom-made taffeta gown from British designer Stella McCartney and white-and-yellow-diamond and emerald earrings by Buccellati.

Photography was by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, with styling by Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, hair by Nicole Mangrum and Malcolm Edwards, and make-up by Derrick Rutledge.

In the accompanying editorial Winfrey looks flawless. In one image she wears a made-to-order Duchesse-satin dress by Alexander McQueen, and another where she sports a made-to-order green jacquard gown.

Inside the issue, she talks with writer Decca Aitkenhead about racism, feminism, the loves and losses in her life, her Royal wedding appearance and addresses her rumored move into politics.‘In that political structure – all the non-truths, the bullshit, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on – I feel like I could not exist,’ Winfrey says. ‘I would not be able to do it. It’s not a clean business. It would kill me.’

The August issue of British Vogue in store will hit newsstands on July 6.
