Oprah Winfrey walked Glori Nelson (née Rapalalani), one of the first girls to graduate from her South African Academy, down the aisle wearing a South African designer's dress.
The Billionaire media giant and philanthropist flew to Georgia to attend the wedding, and looked stunning as she strolled, arm-in-arm with Nelson down the aisle.
Winfrey opted for a flowing, gold chiffon caftan for the ceremony, keeping her look fashionably understated and void of any jewellery. Winfrey’s outfit was a subtle nod to the bride’s South African roots as it was designed by one of very own, Gert-Johan Coetzee.
Nelson, who obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Fashion Marketing and Management, Magna Cum Laude from Savannah College of Art and Design, was also accompanied by one of her former professors, Elizabeth Burns.
