In the nine years Oprah Winfrey's eponymous magazine has been in circulation, no one other than the media mogul herself has appeared on the cover. Michelle Obama will be the first person to share the cover with Winfrey in the magazine's upcoming March cover, hitting newsstands March 17th.

A woman of many firsts, Obama discusses life in the White House, her feelings about the historic inauguration (the weekend after was like a "huge, very complicated wedding", Obama said) and her hopes for making the White House, the "people's house." Obama looks engaged and elegant on the shared cover in a Michael Kors sheath as Winfrey looks on in a lavender shirt dress by Rachel Roy New York.

Winfrey strongly endorsed and campaigned for President Barack Obama during the Democratic primaries and in the election.

Prior to the upcoming March cover, Winfrey shared the cover with herself in the January 2009 cover, contrasting her 2005 trimmer body with her 40-pounds heavier 2009 self.
