Oprah Winfrey’s Plus Size Curvy Dresses: Formal + Casual Fashion Stye




Because you loved our post on plus size celebrity dresses, lets do another one but this time focusing on the fashion style of the most powerful woman in the world, Oprah Winfrey. There is no question that Oprah knows how to pick her dresses. Check out for instance this fabulous Zac Posen gown which she wore to the Oscars two years ago.

Oprah wowed fashion critics and our uberly-critical and hard-to-please friend Kevin who shouted to the TV saying, “That’s how you do it, girlfriend!” That’s how a curvy girl should dress indeed. And what did critics say about Oprah in Zac Posen? Here you go:

Red Carpet Fashion Awards:

Wow. Just Wow Award. Oprah Winfrey dazzled on stage at the 2011 Oscars tonight in LA. The media mogul was at the ceremony to present ‘Best Documentary.’ She graced the stage looking absolutely divine wearing a custom Zac Posen charcoal grey gown. What I love about this gown are ombre sequins. Oprah doesn’t do glamour very often, but when she does, she does it very well.

Anyhoo, let’s check out the other dresses that Ms. Winfrey wore in other formal and informal occasions. Here’s Oprah looking gorgeous in this longsleeve gown from the Honor Fall 2011 Ready to Wear collection. Pic is taken at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy in South Africa.

Probably our favorite Oprah dress is this L’Wren Scott Custom Tribal Gown she wore during her 2011 surprise tribute party in 2011. We’re loving Maria Shriver’s sparkly dress too :-)
