The generous talk show host made a fan's dreams come true after gifting her the lavish white dress she wore on the cover of Essence magazine's Hollywood issue earlier this year.

Twitter user @snobaby28, who is believed to be called Brandi, tweeted Oprah after seeing the cover, which features her, 'The Butler' co-star Forest Whitaker, Michael B. Jordan and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

She wrote: "@oprah you look beautiful in that essence cover pic. WOW. CAN I please have that dress? Cuz I know u won't wear again lol luv u (sic)"


Oprah responded: "@snobaby28 you're right I won't wear ever again contact my asst.

and show her this tweet. (sic)"


It appears the bold and unusual request was granted, as a week later Brandi wrote to the 60-year-old star again after receiving the dress and declared she will wear it on her wedding day.

She wrote: "@Oprah THANK YOU! Recv beautiful dress. Plan to wear at my wedding when I find a groom lol but will twt pic wearing it soon. Luv u to life! (sic)"



Oprah is no stranger to surprising her fans with gifts and has previously stunned studio audiences on her talk show, 'The Oprah Winfrey Show', with her generosity.

The star infamously gave cars to every member of her audience in 2004, cheering, "You get a car! You get a car! Everybody gets a car!"

And in 2010, to mark the final season of the show, she flew her entire audience out to Australia for a week of episodes taped Down Under.
