Oprah Does Oprah at the NY Premiere of “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”

Posted on April 19, 2017

Miss Oprah’s looking kind of adorable here:


Love the head styling. The hair and glasses look really cute.

The look’s kind of a casual one, which is just right for a setting like this one, but still surprises us somewhat. We want our red carpet Oprah to be serving up full divahood at all times, but given both the subject matter of this film and the serious awards buzz surrounding her work, it does make some sense for her to tamp down on any grandiosity and serve up Serious Actress Oprah instead of Diva Oprah. She’s comfy, confident and staying true. And it all shows on her face.

But we’re not without our critiques, being the bitchy fashion bloggers we are. The top half’s a little confusing. She’d look much better if she closed that jacket, but that’s at least partially because the shirt’s not photogenic and the sheer peplum thing is just weird.

She looks great because she’s comfy and serving up Oprah face, but the outfit itself is only so-so.



Man, they might as well just put Jessica Lange, Nicole Kidman and Oprah in a cage this year and have them fight it out for the Emmy. We almost feel sorry for any other actress who might be nominated.
