Oprah makes a very bold statement with O Magazine‘s September issue. The TV titan sports a big afro wig.
The hefty headpiece weighed a whopping 3.5 pounds! That’s the size of a small Chihuahua, according to the Huffington Post. It was transported to the photo shoot back in June in its own special, custom-made pink carrying case and bubble wrap.
When asked about the magazine cover, Oprah replied, “I wish I could say it was all mine. In fact, though, it’s borrowed. And it feels like carrying around an extra head,” Winfrey reveals. “My own hair is shorter, not quite so spherical, and a lot lighter. But that doesn’t mean it never gives me grief. When it comes to hair, I’m in the same boat as most every other woman.”
It’s not Winfrey’s real hair, but she loves it all the same. “Just revealed this new cover of o_magazine — 1 of my faves ever — Let’s talk about HAIR!” she tweeted. She even changed her Twitter avatar to the issue’s cover.
