As my housemates from my uni days would tell you, many of my sentences started 'Oprah said ...' or 'Today on Oprah they said ...' when I had the luxury of watching daytime TV. I freakin' love Oprah and this shoot for Harper's Bazaar shot by Marmite-esque photographer Terry Richardson (you either love him or hate him) is fantastic.
After Oprah's 25 years of 'Oprah' came to an end, it's clear that retirement wasn't on the cards for this self-made billionaire. This shoot shows Oprah's fun and stylish side while the interviews shows her amazing work ethic and determination. I'll miss the show, but I sure love this slick look and Jil Sanders coat.
"When you have reached the peak of a mountaintop, which is where I was with the Oprah show, you have absolutely no worries. I'd been in the right space at the right time, and I'd done that in the best way possible for 25 years. But you have two choices: You can come down from the mountain and spend the rest of your days thinking it was so beautiful there, or you can create a vision, look upward, see the next mountain, and start the climb all over again."Read the full interview here.
