Shoe Closet Spot Light – Walk In Oprah Winfrey’s Shoes!!!
All Oprah needs to do is sneeze her approval of a brand and the majority will jump on the brand wagon of that brand. From clothes to shoes, handbags, jewelry and anything you can think of, Oprah in all her career till date has been seen spotting one designer label or the other.
She is a fashion lover no doubt, but not one of those who believe in the Fashion is Pain mantra. The moment it starts to get uncomfortable, she takes the item off. Reading through some interviews with her stylists, Kelly Hurliman and Adam Glassman, the one thing they both had to say was, she’s a woman of her own, if she doesn’t like the outfit or feel comfortable in it at the moment, she’s not wearing it.
I’ve rounded up some of her iconic shoe moments (out of many many more) below
I think it’s safe to quote her favorite designers to be Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo if she has to wear high heeled shoes for more than just a few minutes.
Her comfort is definitely of utmost importance because in all the red carpet gorgeousness, what you’d find on Oprah’s yearly list of favorite things are Ugg boots, and recently the Vionic brand of sneakers.
Once the cameras are off, Oprah wastes no time in taking off her shoes.
And when she needs to get super comfortable, out come her flip flops and ballet flats
Sometime in 2010, she auctioned about 150 shoes on E bay to help raise funds for her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls. That was at the point she realized she wasn’t a size 10 but a size 11.
I love Oprah for the same reasons the world does, but i love her even more for her rational footwear choices.
Peace, love and more shoes
