Oprah knows a good investment when she sees one.

Early in the 2008 presidential campaign, she threw her support behind a little-known U.S. Senator named Barack Obama. We all know how that turned out.

The Big O is also high on the First Lady of the United States - specifically her fashion sense. Taking style cues from Michelle turned out to be a wise move.

Yesterday, while hosting J.Crew’s Creative Director Jenna Lyons on a special “Dream Jobs” episode of her show, the media made an interesting admission.

After seeing Michelle Obama pictures showing her in relatively affordable J. Crew cardigans, sweaters and skirts, O went and became a J. Crew investor.

Oprah knows a style star when she sees one.

“The very first time I saw the First Lady, before she became the First Lady, wearing J. Crew - full disclosure – I went and bought J.Crew stock,” she said.

The host also said putting her money on Michelle’s mix-it-up, high-low look was indeed a smart bet, saying, “That [investment] was a very good decision."

Good thing, too. In these troubled economic times, Oprah needs all the financial breaks she can get. Hey, better than her taking advice from Octomom.

Up-and-coming fashion designer Jason Wu may have gotten major attention after he created Michelle Obama's inaugural ball gown, but it looks like Michael Kors is running a close second with some non-TV-related press thanks to Mrs. O, too.

Not only did Michelle Obama's White House portrait feature a black Kors ensemble, but she sports an eye-scorching blood orange (red?) dress on the April cover of O.

This is celebrity fashion news in and of itself, as the only person to ever grace the cover of O during its nine year history is, well, the Big O herself. We mean Oprah.

Bruce Weber shot the cover of the magazine, upon which Oprah is wearing Rachel Roy and touting this as the first interview Obama allowed in the White House.

Technically, wouldn't that honor belong to the already-released March issue of Vogue? Either way, do you like the dress Michelle wears on the new cover of O?

The wife of U.S. President Barack Obama has become our de facto celebrity style icon in-chief since he took office in January. She recently became the second First Lady to grace the cover of Vogue (after Hillary Rodham Clinton).
