The article discusses the new look of Oprah Winfrey in light of her appearance at the 2005 Academy Awards event. Trading compliments with Star Jones Reynolds on the red carpet, Winfrey showed off her newly svelte look, stunning proof of her triumph over a decades-long battle of the bulge. "After many years of my weight going up and down, I realized that the commitment to do well and to be well is a lifetime of choices that you make daily," she wrote in the February issue of "O" magazine. That includes swearing off fad diets--remember Optifast?--for a sensible eating plan and making peace with workouts. It also means dressing her size-10 body in figure-revealing fashions, like the Celine suit she wore to kick off her show's 19th season, and couture fashions from Valentino and Ferr�. INSET: HOW SHE DID IT.
