Happy Birthday, O! Oprah’s Style Evolution
Big hair, coloured eyeshadow, fringe, fur and over-the-top accessories – you name it – we all embraced the now-haunting trends of the ’80s and ’90s. Admit it, in a dust-covered photo album somewhere, you are posing in an oversized, brightly patterned sweater with matching eyeshadow and a fresh perm. That is your one advantage over Queen of Media Oprah Winfrey, your proof of (hair) poof is now hidden. Oprah’s, on the other hand, has been heavily recorded after years spent in front of cameras. We’ve watched the media mogul embrace countless looks over the past 30 years and in honour of her 61st birthday, we couldn’t help but take a walk down memory lane. Click through our slideshow of Winfrey’s style evolution, from earnest morning show reporter to one of the richest women in the world (somewhere along the way, her jewels go from costume to Cartier).
