Oprah Winfrey is a queen that deserves her flowers. She’s a television executive, filmmaker, philanthropist, actress, author and so many other things that can’t fit under one title. She is best known for her talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, which was the highest-rated television program of its kind and the blueprint for all of the talk shows that came after it.

The Oprah Winfrey Show hit the airwaves on September 8, 1986 and ran until May 25, 2011, something that was unprecedented at the time. When the show first began, The Oprah Winfrey Show was able to double the viewership of Phil Donahue’s national audience. At the time, Donahue had the number one daytime talk show in America. Oprah claimed that crown and for many years to come, a black woman dominated the airwaves and the daytime talk industry.

Oprah got into acting in 1985, giving us the classic The Color Purple film, directed by Steven Spielberg. Oprah was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance. In 1998, she produced and starred in Beloved, based on the Toni Morrison novel of the same name. She remains one of the most dominant people in the industry. She’s definitely one of the wealthiest celebs in the world, not just the United States but THE WORLD. And even though she’s been in the game for a long time, she continues to serve us looks. I mean, when you’re worth billions, you should never serve anything but the very best, right?

It’s only right that we celebrate Oprah by compiling some of her best looks in a gallery. Make sure you check them out. It’s totally worth it!
