All About Oprah


Photographer: Juergen Teller Stylist: Edward Enninful

Styling the legendary Oprah Winfrey, who starred in Lee Daniels’ The Butler this past year, for W’s Best Performances portfolio, was the highlight of my career. She was even more amazing in person than I ever could have imagined: Oprah made the shoot with photographer Juergen Teller, which took place in a grungy New York hotel, a glamorous, joyous adventure by parading through the hallways declaring her love for Alaïa, Lanvin, and Carolina Herrera at the top of her lungs. See all the photographs here.

“My first crush at the movies was on Robert Duvall in The Godfather. He’s really the unsung hero of the film, the stabilizer of the family. He keeps everybody going, and he knows all the secrets, but he has his own sense of honor and dignity. I love that. I loved him.”
