When someone’s recognized by a single name (a la Elvis or Madonna) you know they’ve hit the big time, and Oprah is living proof that lotsa hard work really can lead to success. Born into poverty and a millionaire by age 32, Oprah Winfrey has spent the last 24 years hosting the most popular women-empowering talk show in television history. Oh yeah, let’s not forget Oprah’s Book Club, O the Oprah Magazine, O at Home,, Oprah Radio and the fact that she was once the world’s only black billionaire.

Millions of women everywhere instantly felt like they’d lost their best friend when news broke that The Oprah Winfrey Show was ending this season. There’s no need to worry, though, because her talent for getting other successful talk show hosts like Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz and Rachael Ray off the ground probably means that plenty of Oprah will still be out there, one way or another. Seen here in a pair of DSquared2 sunglasses, it’s a safe bet that Oprah will remain one of the most recognized celebrities in the world.
