One Of Our Favorite Things? Oprah's Vera Wang Gown

Year after year “Oprah’s Favorite Things” segment caused pandemonium among American women, as the show’s audience crossed their fingers and toes with hopes of Oprah Winfrey yelling, “You get a car, you get a car, you get a car!”  

On the December cover of O, The Oprah Magazine Oprah dons a magical red Vera Wang dress. While magazine readers will flock to purchase the issue for the media maven’s favorite items, it’s the extravagant gown that’s the real jaw-dropping beauty.

Lucky for us, Winfrey’s people dropped a few numerical details on the dress.

Ten people worked on the gown for a total of 100 hours. The train is 15 feet long and weighs 25 pounds. One hundred and sixty yards of fabric were used, the equivalent length of 1 ½ football fields. And 165 rosettes were applied to the skirt.

It’s simply gorgeous.

In the December issue you can find 60 items on “Oprah’s Favorite Things” list ranging from $30 purse mirrors to a $295 toulouse jewelry box. Check out the complete list here!
