The 64-year-old talk show host has been photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for the feature for the elite fashion publication, which sees her don a custom-made gown by designer Stella McCartney.
The TV personality discusses issues of race, gender, her royal wedding appearance and her passion for politics in the rare one-on-one interview with writer Decca Aitkenhead.
In a preview of the article, Oprah admits that she made a mix-up with her Stella McCartney gown she had on order for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s nuptials on May 19.
She told Decca: “[the dress] looked white, not cream. I Googled, ‘Can you wear white to a wedding? Answer: ‘No, don’t risk it.”
And she also spoke about The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry’s empowering sermon at the ceremony.
She said: “It left me feeling that anything is possible through the power of love. Reverend Curry was right!”
