Oprah Winfrey Gives Dress Off Her Back to Twitter Follower

s-OPRAH-AND-JIMMY-KIMMEL-O-MAGAZINE-DECEMBER-large640She has famously given away cars, trips and her favorite things on her talk show and even held a public auction of her home furnishings, but now Oprah Winfrey is literally giving fans the clothes off her back.

The former talk-show queen surprised one Twitter follower, and likely sent the rest of her 23.4 million Twitter followers who didn’t ask slapping their heads – with the dress she wore on the cover of ESSENCE magazine after the fan simply asked:

Atlanta-based Twitter user Brandi ( @snobaby28) got a reply from Winfrey herself less than one hour later saying that, yes, she could have the Brian Rennie for Basler gown Winfrey wore on ESSENCE’s March cover that featured “The Butler” star posing alongside Forest Whitaker, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael B. Jordan.

 

 

After a few failed attempts at reaching someone on Winfrey’s team, Brandi was contacted by one of Winfrey’s assistants, Maya Watson, who instructed her to follow her on Twitter so she could send her a direct message.

On Feb. 21, exactly one week after she first tweeted Winfrey, Brandi tweeted that the star’s dress was now in her hands.
