opened up about her weight loss transformation as she stole the show at the Color Purple premiere.

The 69-year-old was nothing short of a vision while at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in LA on Wednesday.

She clearly got the dress code memo as she arrived in a floor-length purple gown, complete with a sparkly bag and lace shoes.

The TV icon, who was in the original flick in 1985 and serves as producer for the revival, spoke to about what led to her new look, in recent months.

‘It’s not one thing, it’s everything,’ she told the outlet, when asked if her transformation was a result of Weight Watchers. ‘I intend to keep it that way.

‘I was on that treadmill today.’

Oprah was joined at the premiere by a string of A-Listers, and was pictured mingling with director Steven Spielberg and Tyler Perry on the carpet.

Cast member Halle Bailey was also in attendance beside her sister, Chloe, with Taraji P Henson, Margaret Avery, Danielle Brooks and Ciara – who decorated her baby bump in gold for the occasion.

The Color Purple is hitting the big screen in the US this month, before premiering in the UK in January.

Oprah recently made headlines when she reflected on how by the public in recent years – insisting that people behaved differently before she lost 200lbs.

Speaking on her Oprah Daily’s The Life You Want Class: The State of Weight panel in October, the entertainment mogul: ‘This is a world that has shamed people for being overweight forever. And all of us who’ve lived it know that people treat you differently, they just do.

‘It’s that thing [in shops] where people are like, “Let me show you the gloves. Would you like to look at the handbags? Because we know that there’s nothing in here for you.”

‘There is a condescension. There is stigma.’

‘You all know I’ve been on this journey for most of my life. My highest weight was 237lbs,’ she added. ‘I don’t know if there is another public person whose weight struggle has been exploited as much as mine over the years.

‘You all have watched me diet and diet and diet. It’s a recurring thing because my body always seems to want to go back to a certain weight.’

The Color Purple is released in the US on December 25, and in the UK on January 26.
