Happy Birthday, Oprah! A Brief History Of The Queen Of All Media’s Style

oprah-birthday-collage

Today is Oprah’s birthday! Oprah Oprah Oprah YAY YAY YAY. Ok, sorry, but I just really love Oprah. I think she’s one of the most incredible people who’s been born in the last century and I’m really happy to share an earth with her. (She also has a great sense of humor about herself).

She’s also, let’s be real, pretty well-dressed. I’m sure Oprah has an amazing stylist and also killer taste, because she usually always looks gorgeous in her trademark colorful, long-sleeved dresses. Personally, I think she gets better with each year and every outfit.

In celebration of the fact that this incredible woman has been living and breathing for 60 years as of this very day, here’s a look at some of Oprah’s memorable style moments.
