If you’ve got it, flaunt it – Oprah Winfrey is definitely feelin’ herself after shedding 15 lbs.

Appearing earlier this month on Stephen Colbert‘s The Late Show, the former talk show host looked noticeably slimmer in a black velvet, off-the-shoulder long-sleeve dress.

The 61-year-old accessorized the curve-hugging midi dress with studded pumps, heavy gold earrings and thick-framed glasses, and wore her hair naturally curly.

Before promoting her seven-night television event Belief, Winfrey showed off her stems outside the famed theatre in suede beige pants and matching booties, worn with a cozy pink cardigan.

Winfrey revealed during a later interview with Ellen DeGeneres that she’d lost the weight in only a few months – 15 lbs. since Aug. 12.

The star, who has long been vocal about her weight struggles, recently spent $43.2 million for a 10 percent stake in Weight Watchers. The agreement adds the star to the company’s nine-member board, and allows them to use her name, image and likeness to promote its services, subject to Winfrey’s approval.

“Weight Watchers has given me the tools to begin to make the lasting shift that I and so many of us who are struggling with weight have longed for,” Winfrey said in a statement from the company. “I believe in the program so much I decided to invest in the company and partner in its evolution.”
