Talk show queen Oprah Winfey walked the red carpet at ‘The Butler’ premiere in New York this week in a custom rose colored sequined Theia gown designed by Irish man Don O’Neill.

The dress featured thousands of sequins in five varying sizes and shapes and was fitted and altered for the star just hours before Monday night's premiere.

“Meeting and dressing @oprah was a huge honor, she is #GorgeousInsideAndOut,” the Kerry man Tweeted.

The media mogul was in New York to promote ‘The Butler’ in which she plays the wife of a butler (Forest Whitaker) who served eight U.S. presidents in the White House over the course of more than 30 years.

Oprah, 59, also sported a giant afro of curls for the evening, mimicking the hair style she sports on the cover of O Magazine’s September 2013 issue.

This is not the first time the TV mogul has worn one of O’Neill’s designs, Oprah also wore a hammered gold sequined gown with three-quarter sleeves and a sleek silhouette on the cover of O Magazine in 2011.

Theia (named after the Greek goddess of sight and lights in the sky) is currently sold in over 350 stores globally including Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.
