On the latest cover of her self-titled O, The Oprah Magazine, media mogul Oprah Winfrey shows off her killer curves — from front and back — in a red-hot Badgley Mischka gown!
The TV host, who just turned 60 in January, talks "aging brilliantly" in the new issue, and questions why society puts such a strong emphasis on youth.
"Call me crazy, but I've never really understood our culture's fear of getting older," Oprah writes.
"One day I literally woke up and thought 'My god, these knees have been with me for 60 years. Wow! I've had these elbows for 60 years. My heart has been beating for 60 years. The feet I stand on have carried me for 60 years.' And when you think about it that way, you can be nothing but grateful."
The millionaire, who describes her cover look as "fabulous," refers to each passing year as "a brand new journey," and encourages her readers to do the same.
"Think about it: You get one chance to be 25, 38, 44, 61 and every age before and between. Why wouldn't you want to experience all the wonder in each step on your path?" she questions.
The Oscar nominee adds she's "celebrating the process with vibrancy and vigor and grace," which makes those emergence of wrinkles a whole lot easier to swallow!
