The only question left is, what to do with the extra space in our suitcases next time we return from Paris fashion week?
Oprah showed off her hair-raising September cover on Instagram. According to The Cut, the super-sized wig weighs roughly the same amount as a Chihuahua (3.5 pounds). But if there’s anyone that can wear a ‘fro this fantastic, it’s the Queen of Talk. Winfrey’s top tip for pulling off a massive mane: equally large earrings. “Otherwise they just get lost in the hair,” she says.
