Shining Moment
When Oprah's in her garden, she's in her element. "Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?" she says of a pink peony. Of course, the sequined skirt she wore for our cover shoot isn't exactly down-in-the-dirt garb: "I'd wear this at a dinner party. Maybe without the boots." But if you want to compete with nature's splendor, sometimes you have to up your game!

On Oprah: Cardigan, Jed. Shirt, Lafayette 148 New York. Skirt, Badgley Mischka. Boots, Hunter.
