You get Oprah's clothes! And you get Oprah's clothes! And you get Oprah's clothes!
The talk show titan and billionaire businesswoman has listed some of her famous — and colorful — ensembles for auction on eBay to raise money for her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation in South Africa.
"I just don’t need all this intense color, the embellishment, the heels anymore," Winfrey told The Coveteur. "When you’re in front of TV cameras every day, you have to stand out, but I’m in a different place now, and those things no longer serve me."
Winfrey decided to auction over 250 items from her "work closet" as part of her preparation to shut down the famous Harpo Studios in Chicago, which housed her talk show for 25 years. The company relocated to new headquarters in West Hollywood last year.
Items for sale include a black and silver sequin Badgley Mischka dress, a Gianfranco Ferre belted overcoat, and some four-inch Manolos with a yellow pointed toe and a “bright and fun feel.”
New items are listed every day, and bids are already extremely competitive. The “Oprah’s Closet Cleanout” auction ends March 4.
