Oprah Winfrey: The presidency would kill me

"It would kill me", added the star.

"People talk about "these are such dark times", but what if we shift the paradigm?" "I see, 'Isn't this remarkable that we're waking up?' For years, women have endured craziness".

Luckily she called on a friend, designer Stella McCartney, who managed to pull a rabbit out of a hat and came up with a brand-new light-pink creation which she wore on the day. This is what's happening to people.

When the TV mogul gave her viral speech at the Golden Globes in January, many speculated she would consider running for president in 2020.

"I had enough people, billionaires calling me, saying I can get you a billion dollars, I can run your campaign".

Inside the issue, the media icon discusses race, feminism, her Royal wedding appearance, the loves and losses in her life - and that rumoured move into politics - in a rare one-on-one interview with writer Decca Aitkenhead.

Besides her cover girl comeback and her daytime job as CEO of Harpo Productions - which produces shows such as Dr. Phil, The Dr. Oz Show and Rachael Ray - Winfrey signed off on a multi-year content partnership with Apple late last month, that will see her create original content for the technology giant.

Seth said in jest: "In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner, jokes about how he was unqualified to be president".

Though Winfrey looked stunning in a pale pink Stella McCartney number, she nearly committed a major faux pas by wearing a cream gown to the nuptials. I Googled, "Can you wear white to a wedding?"

Despite nearly risking it all, the media mogul seems to have had an unbelievable time at the wedding.

Winfrey said of the sermon: "It was a cultural moment and you could not be there or watching on television... and not feel that there was a shift that just happened in the middle of it".

In the rest of the Vogue pictures shared on Monday, Winfrey oozes elegance in a rich, red satin gown from Alexander McQueen and a floral gown from Erdem, one of the Duchess of Cambridge's favorite labels.
