Not many people can say they’ve seen Oprah Winfrey’s closet (one of many), except for her BFF Gayle King, until now.
Winfrey gave the green light to The Coveteur, a site that explores the homes and closets of global street style stars and tastemakers, to come and crash her Harpo Studios wardrobe for their highly coveted behind-the-scenes feature. In the process of packing up her Chicago-based abode for good, O shared some sentimental last moments in the studio where her career took off.

“I never walked out of the studio in my stilts. As soon as we finished taping a show, the crazy heels came off and the soft slippers slid on.”
“My clothes were for being seen on TV or at an event. I’m still doing those things, but now my clothes are just for me.”
“I just don’t need all this intense color, the embellishment, the heels anymore. 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.”
“A crisp white shirt under a V-neck has been my favorite look since I saw Mary Tyler Moore do it in the ’70s. The collar and shirttail are attached to this sweater, so there’s no extra bulk.”
“You know, Adam [Glassman was] the one who made me realize I was holding on to clothes that were all about a dream I had for myself. I chose them for this idea I’d gotten into my head of how someone like me was supposed to live, but they had nothing to do with my actual life. And that changed me!”
