Media mogul and actress Oprah Winfrey attends a special screening of The Butler in New York City on July 31. She recently had an encounter with a saleswoman in Switzerland over a Tom Ford handbag.
Oprah Winfrey gave $12 million Tuesday to help build the Smithsonian's new National Museum of African American History and Culture, seen here in a scale model (lower center). The facility is expected to open in 2015.
