The chic, upscale, and tony River Oaks District has been site to myriad national celeb sightings, most recently, Kylie Jenner and her partner (and Houston native), Travis Scott, who were enjoying a quiet date night. But on August 8, the scene amped up to mega-wattage proportions, as Oprah Winfrey stopped by the shopping center — eliciting a social media frenzy.
The pop culture icon, queen of talk TV, and oft-wished presidential candidate is said to have visited the Stella McCartney store (she's apparently a fan — remember the infamous pink royal wedding dress?). Donned in a white top, black pants, a nifty black and white hat, and — naturally — large sunglasses, Winfrey was ringed by her bodyguard and throngs of fans. She posed for pictures with staff before being whisked away in a black SUV.
The moments were cleverly captured by River Oaks District social media staff, who exclaimed, "You get a sighting, you get a sighting, you get a sighting!" in reference to Winfrey's signature "you get..." giveaway catchphrase. No word on where the mega-star will turn up next, but here's hoping that H-Town is on her list of favorite things.
Queen O, while you're here: If you're looking for post-shopping refreshments, we humbly suggest you peruse food editor Eric Sandler's list of hot spots. (Hey, we even have a Nobu.)
