Oprah must not be more than 5 when she decided that she won’t live a life she didn’t like. Who knew that the small girl living on an isolated farm in Mississippi would one day grow up to be the “Queen of All Media” or should I say “America's First Lady of Daytime Talk Shows? The title has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Starting from scratch to becoming the visionary entrepreneur that she is today, Oprah made her way up with hard work, persistence and a belief that ‘everything is possible in the world’.
Philanthropist, producer, entrepreneur or actress, the woman has so many shoes to fill. Raising herself to the heights of glory and using her power to elevate others, she is the true example of humanity.
Here, we will talk about the most famous eyewear looks of Oprah. She has been giving me major eyewear envy for years and now it’s time that I share some of her eyewear achievements with you all.
No matter if she is hosting a show, giving a speech or attending an event, Oprah Winfrey’s glasses game is always on point. And she also seems to have a pretty impressive collection as well. So why not take the style notes from the queen bee herself?
1. Serene But Spunky - Tortoiseshell Glasses
Oprah is a lady of class and honour but boy does she know how to play it cool with her glasses. Tortoiseshells have always been a symbol of class, sophistication and wealth. But, throw some contemporary colours into the mix and you get fantasy eyewear that’s perfect for a bold and eclectic look.
Keeping it fresh
The gentleman here ‘Hale’ is an imitation of Oprah’s Winfrey’s glasses in a teal tortoiseshell pattern. The hipster frame is perfect for the fans of vintage and art. Style it with bold colours or keep it minimal with a muted ensemble and let the colour pop. Milton will inject fun into your outfit and comes with free protective lens coatings. Shop for Milton as your next prescription or fake glasses.
2. Chic And Elegant - Golden Rim Oversized Glasses
As she is wearing a white long dress with a pair of boots, I can’t take my eyes off of those beautiful and elegant full-rim glasses in gold. She is just looking very elegant and gorgeous. This picture is taken when Oprah arrived for the opening celebration at the Statue Of Liberty Museum.
Her nude- lip shade and neutral white dress are complementing her glasses. This is one of the many reasons why she is a fashion icon even for millennials.
Elegant in Gold
Lymm here is elegant and beautiful. Perfect for every moment, this beauty will make every occasion more special. Want the focus on your glasses? Pair them with lighter hues and soft eye shadow. If you crave a bold look, deep purples, stark black and red have some pretty nice contrast to offer. I like to pair mine with a berry lip, minimal eye makeup, complementary blush and white or a black outfits. Did I just forget to mention my favourite white sneakers? Damn!
3. Shrewd Yet Innocent - Black Cat-Eye Glasses
Oprah is the epitome of the American dream. Being the undisputed queen of daytime television for 25 years is no joke. If I could learn one thing from her that would be her sharp business skills. Just have a look at these sophisticated professional cat-eye glasses? Doesn’t it scream professional?
Black Cat EYE Glasses
Catworth here has an air of sophistication and professionalism perfect for your office look. Pair it with a power suit and high heel. The clean finish and simple designs will fit well in any company’s culture. I can literally see this frame on a female marketing director.
4. A Staple of Individuality - Mottled Wooden Glasses
A still picture when Oprah attended ' ‘US Open 2015 tennis” match between Serena and Venus Williams at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, Oprah opted for a subtle white top with these sunglasses. She has built an empire out of motivational and inspirational public speaking. Again, she chose to match her warm frame colour with cool and subtle white colour for an all time inspirational look.
The Enduring Trend
The classic Adswood is a replica of Oprah’s Winfrey’s sunglasses above. This vintage-inspired frame is born to steal the show. Turn your casual and preppy looks into a retro dream or add an ultra-chic vibe to your office attire. The wayfarer shape suits every face and occasion. Bring back 80s charm with Adswood.
5. Subtle Shade, Huge Impact - Soft and Sober look
The iconic media mogul went for a classic look when she attended the red-carpet premiere of the documentary “Sidney” at the Academy Of Motion Pictures. She completed it with round glasses in soothing white and a beaming smile with an elegant earring. She was in an all-white ensemble with natural-toned heels.
Not ‘in your face’
The young Clough in round silhouette and glossy finish will go with any attire. Pair it up with a crop top, white spring jacket, wide-leg trouser and loafer. For home parties, mix and match with a sky blue shirt, tennis skirt and a pair of sneakers. Men may wear this frame with an all-black ensemble or double denim.
What do you think?
