Oprah Winfrey’s Theia Gown Returns for Oscar Encore

Coverage of The 84th Annual Academy Awards®
February 27, 2012

Oprah Winfrey received plenty of comparisons to an Oscar statuette when she wore a gold Theia gown to the Academy Awards. But that isn't the only striking thing about the dress.

Oprah must like the fit of the scoop-necked, sequined number because she's worn it twice now. Before she donned it on Sunday night to accept the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, she was photographed in it for the September 2011 issue of "O, The Oprah Magazine." Perhaps she liked the way it looked on the cover so much that she decided to make a second appearance in it. She even kept her hair and accessories similar, aside from the addition of the shining Oscar statuette.

It was clearly comfortable enough for a long night. After the show, Oprah joined Jimmy Kimmel for spoofs and interviews on his post-Oscar special. Maybe we'll see it show up soon on her Favorite Things list.
