When Oprah Winfrey (Lady ‘O’) adopts a movie, she really does it up. Just ask the cast of the British costume drama, Belle, feted at a fabulous garden party recently in the backyard of Oprah’s Montecito Estate near Santa Barbara, California three days after having seen the movie Belle on May 9, 2014.
You’ll see an abundance of pink peonies perfuming the tables and guests being served Cherry Infused Veuve Clicquot Champagne Cocktails.
Click on the video below to see the rest of the decor and what was on the lunch menu. Oprah, enthusiastically talks about her new passion, Belle and its breakout star, Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Critics are raving about Mbatha-Raw’s “radiant” and “pitch-perfect” performance as ‘Dido’.
Cherry Infused Veuve
’Dido’ Elizabeth Belle Lindsay played by actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What’s Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.
“Falling in Love” John Davinier, an aspirin attorney played
