It might as well have been the Oscars. Megawatt stars like Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning, Alicia Keys, Aretha Franklin, Maria Shriver and more showed up to fête Oprah Winfrey in Chicago Tuesday night as she filmed two of her final Oprah Winfrey Show episodes. “I feel the love, and I thank you for it,” Winfrey told her famous friends — and the crowd of 13,000 fans inside Chicago’s United Center — as the festivities rolled on. And naturally, for such a big event, stars brought out big style. Halle Berry, in Victoria Beckham, joined Katie Holmes, in shorts and a blouse, and an LBD-clad Queen Latifah for a touching Winfrey tribute. Madonna wore a dress from Miu Miu‘s fall/winter 2011 collection, while Beyoncé performed in a tuxedo-inspired leotard and hot red heels. Not to be outdone, Winfrey — perhaps dressed by her stylist? — looked regal in a floor-length purple L’Wren Scott gown, green gems and a slicked-back ponytail. Nary a fashion miss to be seen! Tell us: Which stars’ look was your favorite?

Counting down the days until this is on air! What a wonderful way to end such an amazing career. Oprah has meant so much to so many of us, both celebrities and every day average joes!


We are all sorry to see Oprah go but she has to do what makes her happy. We all seem to forget she is a real person and has feelings also.

Halle and Queen Latifah looked amazing! I’ve got no comment on the others.

Can you tell us where we can get Halle’s look for less from the Oprah show finale?
