Queen of all media, Oprah Winfrey is emptying out her closet and putting 150 designer pieces up for auction on eBay beginning March 1 at 11 a.m. ET. "Whether it's your boots, whether it's your purses that you like, I really do think that there's something for everybody in Oprah's closet," says O Magazine Editor-at-Large Gayle King.
No kidding! We've long been obsessed with Oprah's shoe obsession—and we're pretty sure the queen of all media will be shedding some nice baubles and designer handbags in aid of charity as well. So sign us up! The sale will benefit the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa
