Oprah Winfrey arrives in Sydney & celebrates in the Botanic Gardens

| 12 December , 2010 | 6 Replies

Oprah has finally arrived in Sydney and OMG these photos of her in a Camilla Franks Kaftan that she bought in QLD is just divine on her and to see the pics of her with the backdrop of our harbour, it’s just beautiful. And her best friend and business partner Gayle King looked glamboyant in bright pink … I’m so thrilled the weather turned out the sunshine yesterday and today, it’s been so wet and miserable in Sydney.

Last night (11th December), the TV Queen hosted a lavish party for 450 guests, her audience members, business leaders and politicians at the Royal Botanic Gardens.  The party at the Botanic Gardens ended with a big bang of a fireworks display and a giant pink “O” illuminating the Harbour Bridge … which will stay until she leaves next week … a bit cheesy yes!

Entertainment included Guy Sebastian and Hawaiian singer Jack Johnson, the food was styled by Donna Hay and MC’d by Channel Ten newsreader Sandra Sully.

Mrs Macquarie’s Chair was transformed to represent the best Australia has to offer. One area had been turned into a beach with surfboards, deck chairs and umbrellas. Another room was decorated with hay bales and saddles, while   another area was outfitted with chandeliers, white leather lounges and displays of daisies and white hydrangeas.

I can’t wait to see who she has on her show next week, I hope there will be some interesting Aussies and not just the same ol’ same ol’ … sadly I didn’t get media accreditation but that doesn’t surprise me, you’ve gotta keep trying and not let things like the Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway ‘incident’ keep you down!

This is the last leg of Oprah’s visit in Australia, she’s been to Hamilton Island, Uluru, and Melbourne.  This is an amazing opportunity for Australia and the next visit we need is from Ellen De Generes who I love so much, I hope to launch my completed website for Ellen’s visit early in 2011, the magazine that has been in creation for two years now is nearly finished, but you can visit my website to see the first stage:  www.elleninoz.com.au.

    Hey Jaez,
    I’m sorry I don’t know and it’s unlikely I will be able to find out, I will try for you though and submit the question to their PR.

    Thank you Lala that’s very kind, I’ve been so grateful for all the support I’ve received and really didn’t expect it to get the coverage and support that I did.

    I really love these gorgeous wedge sandals Oprah is wearing here. Do you have any details? Like who makes them and where I can buy a pair??

    Wow, how you realise how amazing people look when they wear colour. Oprah and Gayle look radiant, as they should being on such an amazing holiday!

    Sorry to read about Jake & Anne incident, how disheartening for you. Onwards and upwards lovely 🙂
