A Tuxedoed Oprah In Harper’s Bazaar…

In my opinion Oprah is looking pretty fierce in this white tuxedo ensemble. Photographed by Terry Richardson for November’s Harper’s Bazaar; Oprah talks about why it was time after 25 years, to leave her infamous talk show, which touched many people’s lives the world over; and move on to create and run OWN {Oprah Winfrey Network} TV cable channel.

The statement I admire from most people’s favourite billionairess, is “When you have reached the peak of a mountaintop, which is where I was with the Oprah show, you have absolutely no worries. I’d been in the right space at the right time, and I’d done that in the best way possible for 25 years. But you have two choices: You can come down from the mountain and spend the rest of your days thinking it was so beautiful there, or you can create a vision, look upward, see the next mountain, and start the climb all over again.”  My question to you is… Which path would you choose?

Enter Mr. Reggie Wells…

While getting my bi-weekly haircut on Saturday, which at this point was actually at 3 weeks (busy, busy), who should walk into the salon, but Emmy award-winning make-up artist, Mr. Reggie Wells himself! Who is Reggie Wells? some of you may ask; Mr. Wells was Oprah Winfrey’s makeup artist for 20 plus years!

He was an absolute darling and a pleasure to talk to and was so down to earth with no airs and graces.  Reggie had us all rolling with laughter within 15 minutes of his arrival.  Reggie has worked with all the major stars including: Chaka Khan, Diahann Carroll, Oprah Winfrey, Iman, Whitney Houston, and more.  Unfortunately I was unable to take a pic with him, though he was willing; but I was smack in the middle of my haircut and colour and he had to leave.  So here is my photo of Mr. Reggie Wells and Mr. Duvall who is the owner of the salon.

Can you believe Mr Duvall is 82 years young!! He is one of the sharpest business men I know, with amazing stories of Washington, DC in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.  To read more about Reggie’s time with Oprah click here.

Mr. Wells is also the International Creative Director of Australia’s beauty brand Hissyfit.  Hissyfit is the brainchild of Australia’s Olympic gold medalist Louise Dobson and former magazine editor Sue Smethurst.  To see more on Hissy Fit click on the link.

Wishing you an amazing and productive week.  Smooches!
