It might as well have been the Oscars. Megawatt stars like Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning, Alicia Keys, Aretha Franklin, Maria Shriver and more showed up to fête Oprah Winfrey in Chicago Tuesday night as she filmed two of her final Oprah Winfrey Show episodes. “I feel the love, and I thank you for it,” Winfrey told her famous friends — and the crowd of 13,000 fans inside Chicago’s United Center — as the festivities rolled on. And naturally, for such a big event, stars brought out big style. Halle Berry, in Victoria Beckham, joined Katie Holmes, in shorts and a blouse, and an LBD-clad Queen Latifah for a touching Winfrey tribute. Madonna wore a dress from Miu Miu‘s fall/winter 2011 collection, while Beyoncé performed in a tuxedo-inspired leotard and hot red heels. Not to be outdone, Winfrey — perhaps dressed by her stylist? — looked regal in a floor-length purple L’Wren Scott gown, green gems and a slicked-back ponytail. Nary a fashion miss to be seen! Tell us: Which stars’ look was your favorite?
