15th anniversary is also celebrated as Crystal anniversary and Oprah Winfrey’s O magazine sure knows to make the best of the dazzling milestone. O, The Oprah Magazine, first published on April 19, 2000, is a monthly magazine founded by Oprah Winfrey.
Primarily marketed at women, the magazine’s cover has been dominated by Oprah only since its inception. Marking the glossy’s 15th anniversary, the cover features its founder in a dazzling Swarovski crystal-encrusted dress complemented by a sparkling “O” logo. Signed by Winfrey, the Crystal anniversary edition is adorned with over 1500 Swarovski crystals per issue. However Oprah played it modest on the occasion of the unveiling of O’s May cover by dressing up in a bright orange sweater with white piping, dark blue jeans and off-white sneakers bearing sparkles on the toe box.
The founder and the face of the magazine described the first-ever black-and-white O magazine cover as “It’s very iconic.” The 61 year old media giant Oprah Winfrey raised a toast at the unveiling and added, “I won’t say 15 more [years]. Fifteen more of dragging me out, I don’t think so.” Though the commemorative edition will hit the stands on April 14, the exclusive May 2015 anniversary edition will be offered to only fifteen premier members of O’s Circle of Friends who can win a copy of the magazine. Lucky winners will also receive a selection of luxury beauty products worth $500 with the issue.
