Get Oprah Winfrey’s Style
Get Oprah Winfrey’s Style America has been watching Oprah Winfrey on her syndicated talk show for the past 25 years. Now, in her farewell season, the media mogul is gearing up to say goodbye to her loyal fans and move on to bigger things, such as her OWN network. But no one will ever forget the impact she’s had – or the fashion statements she’s made – on 'Oprah.'
Jene Luciani, style expert, regular 'Today' show contributor and author of 'The Bra Book,' has had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Winfrey in person, and can assure you she looks just as good in real life as she does on TV. Here, Jene shares with us her top tips for how to recreate the talk show queen’s signature look.
Orange We all know Oprah is not one to shy away from wearing bold colors, especially when it comes to one of her favorite hues: orange. “Oprah knows this color suits her and she wears it often,” says Jene. “Whether it's a classic cashmere cardigan or silk blouse, you have to have a pop of tangerine, which happens to be huge this season!”

Hermes Oprah is a lover of all things fabulous, and that includes designers who deserve their expensive price tags, such as Hermes. “Oprah was famously turned away from this store after hours, and is said to buy tons of gifts at Hermes, including their fabulous silk scarves and of course, the covetable Birkin bag.” While you may not be able to afford Oprah’s favorites, a less expensive option along the same lines will do, like the Tellis bag from ALDO ($40, zappos.com)
Pearls “Oprah is classic, period,” says Jene, and we couldn’t agree more. Throughout her long career, the media mogul has kept the content of her show, magazine and radio programs classy, sophisticated and concerned with important topics that affect real women. And, as Jene says, “You don't get much more classic than a string of pearls!”

Platforms For a woman as busy and successful as Oprah, shoes that are comfortable yet stylish are a must. “You'll never catch Oprah in stilettos or pointy toes,” says Jene. “Sturdy shoes are her thing.” Invest in a pair of power pumps, like these Cream Leather Open Toe Pumps from Kate Spade ($298, katespade.com) and you too may be running the show like Oprah!
