This might just be the most mind-boggling magazine spread we’ve seen in a while notorious perv Terry Richardson has photographed Oprah Winfrey for Harper’s Bazaar. And get this — she’s fully clothed!
Ann Caruso styled Winfrey in a fire engine red Jil Sander coat, a white Escada menswear-inspired tux, and a smattering of blinged-out rings. As much as we adore Oprah, we’re still weirded out by a shot of her doing a thumbs up pose à la Richardson.
However, once we get past the bizarre spread, the interview with Laura Brown is pretty much as normal as you’d expect — a recap of how Winfrey has juggled the move from her eponymous talk show to OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. But before we all think that Oprah’s some sort of superwoman (let’s be honest, she is), she’s quick to point out that she’s just a work in progress and does not always follow her own motto, “Live your best life”:
“Like this morning, I had the intention to meditate for 20 minutes, but I really only made it about 12. And then I said, ‘Okay, don’t beat yourself up; you did the 12.’ I had the intention to work out for an hour, but I only did a half. And even with that I was still a half hour later getting here, so…”
Yeah, we’ve all been there. But we’ve got to give Oprah a break, considering her day starts at 5:45 a.m. So, how does she relax then?
“Oh, I’ve got all the Shades, for the time I can take some guilty pleasure and just read. But I’m thinking, Stop with the story, get to the juicy part! Bathing is my hobby. I love creating bathing experiences—bath gels, bubbles, crystals, salts, lavender milks…Oh, yeah! I go prune. I go waaaay prune. I’ve gone to sleep.”
And now you know.
