Oprah Winfrey showed off her vast selection of wigs on the set of her new film today.

Oprah Winfrey, 58, tweeted a photo of her make-up free self in front of a whole wall of hairpieces, writing “me and my <<girls>> in the make-up trailer”.

The usually glamorous star has been seen wearing some of the less than flattering hairpieces as she films her new movie The Butler.

Oprah Winfrey plays Gloria Gaines in the historical drama – the first time she will appear as a character other than herself since 1998’s Beloved.

She has been filming scenes with co-star Lenny Kravitz and Cuba Gooding Jr. in New Orleans.

The star-studded film tells the tale of a White House butler who serves eight Presidents over the course of three decades.

Her hair seems to be on Oprah’s mind recently.

This week saw her grace the cover of her self-titled O magazine, showing off her natural hair in all of its glory.

In the snap, Oprah Winfrey proudly models her curly tresses with a big smile.

She also shows off her curves in a dress by Badgley Mischka paired with earrings by Alexis Bittar and a ring by Jordan Alexander.

For decades Oprah Winfrey has rocked several hairstyles and weaves during her long-spanning career as the world’s most famous talk show host.


Writing in the column “What I Know For Sure” inside September’s Makeover Issue, Oprah Winfrey discusses her tresses and the role they play in the expression of “self”.

The talk show icon, who often wears her hair naturally in her down time and on the weekends, reveals that she once nearly chopped it all off.

“I wanted to wear it close-cropped a la Camille Cosby but her husband Bill (Crosby) convinced me otherwise,” she explains.

“<<Don’t do it>>, he said. <<You’ve got the wrong head shape and you’ll disappoint yourself>>. I took his advice.”

Oprah Winfrey, who has sported countless dos during her career, believes that altering your hairstyle can be liberating.

“I even notice a change in my dogs when they get their summer cuts: they’re friskier and livelier, feeling more themselves once the weight of the hair is released,” she says.

And while she is a firm believer in change, Oprah Winfrey says that the makeovers which are the most successful and maintained are those in which something inside the receiver clicks, aligning with that which is being received.

“The only way to real transformation is through the mind.”
