Whoopi Goldberg has been a style icon for years and now she’s talking about it.
The “Color Purple” star and the “View” co-host is in the latest issue of Garage magazine, speaking to author Ottessa Moshfegh about her sense of fashion and a whole lot more.
“I’m anti-social but I don’t want to be an asshole, so I talk to people when they come up to me. I like it out here, though,” Goldberg says of living in New York.
Speaking about her unique approach to fashion, Goldberg humbly says, “I just want to feel comfortable.
“You know, I love high heels but I always wore them with socks. And fashion is finally catching up to me. When you go to the shows, now you see girls on the runway wearing socks with heels.”
Goldberg has a new clothing line, DUBGEE, coming out this spring, and she says she was inspired to create it after going on a trip to Greece and not being able to find clothes that fit her.
“It made me feed bad, like my body doesn’t fit,” she says.
Goldberg hasn’t always been thought of in terms of her looks, she says. Looking back on her 1987 film “Fatal Beauty”, the actress recalls, “Nobody who worked on that movie saw me as sexy. They didn’t even think of me as a woman. Because I’m black.”
