Oprah Winfrey In Honor – Leadership Academy for Girls Inaugural Graduation

Oprah Winfrey was beaming with joy at the inaugural graduation for the Leadership Academy for Girls in Henley on Klip, South Africa earlier today.

The graduates, who were all dressed in white, were just as excited to share their accomplishments with Oprah.

Fashion would’ve been the last thing on on their minds at this event, but it has to be noted that Oprah looked so very charming and graceful wearing an Honor Fall 2011 dress.

Her emerald green silk chiffon dress was accessorized with a multi-colour tasseled belt, flat sandals and emerald jewels.

The former TV host founded the Leadership Academy for Girls in January 2007 in an effort to provide leadership and educational opportunities for gifted girls from impoverished backgrounds.

At the celebration she said, “I’m one proud momma today, I always held the vision that this day was possible.”

    Is that green eye shadow? Yikes! Sorry but I can’t get past the eye shadow. Love the green dress, but is it too big?

    The jade green color is lovely, but the top seems a bit too baggy on her. Of course she’s a different shape from the model but I would have preferred the top to drape better.
    The girls dresses are all so pretty!

  9. Obviously, the girls dresses and hers were carefully chosen but to great effects. O looks radiant without taking away from the girls. Beautiful pictures!

    I love the color and the shape of this dress on her. She’s beaming. And a sandal is a far better choice than what the model is wearing.

    She looks amazing

    Lovely colour, and of course she chose a dress that she thought would be appropriate on this occasion. But she should´ve also toned down her hair, makeup, and jewellery, they are a bit overdone, and go for a more natural styling.

    I love it, she looks fresh and vibrant
