Post-Oscar Recap: Oprah Winfrey

Okay, so Oprah Winfrey has now worn the same dress twice. Once for a magazine shoot well over a year ago and then, again, for last month's Academy Awards.


But who cares? It's a fabulous gown, don't you think? And just because she's wealthier than just about anyone else doesn't mean she can't wear something more than once. She doesn't owe us a new one! 

And let me tell you, when you're a plus-sized woman, finding a dress for a special occasion that looks as good as that one does is no small miracle. I can totally understand wanting to wear it again.

Does it fit within a deep autumn color palette? Absolutely!

What do you think? Was it good enough to wear twice?

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

Deep Autumn:"Sensible and straightforward as all Autumns, but direct in speech, and quick to absorb change with good evidence, they speak honestly and bluntly. What I love most, I believe, is that they are not one bit threatened or defensive about new ideas. The person may demonstrate more of Winter’s reserve, or more of Autumn’s passive and natural way, but there is always an element of fire." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints


  1. Wow, Oprah looks so fabulous in that gown! :)

    1. I completely agree, and if I had a gown I looked that good in, I'd wear it everywhere! :)
