Oprah rocks a sexy high-volume Afro that spans almost the entire background of the magazine's cover. In bold lettering to her side is the issue's mantra, "Let's Talk About HAIR!" (We will, O, we will.) She wears a flirty, décolletage-bearing orange dress with gold and fuchsia accessories, including a sparkly headband to hold her colossal coif back.
Oprah explains why she chose hair for the mag's September 2013 theme. "Women, we have issues with our hair," she said. "[Women's] hair represents the first thing anyone sees of them, or of ourselves, and so we identify with what our hair looks like."
