  • The red one
  • The black silk one
  • The leopard one (made from real leopard)
  • The one Stedman gave her on their anniversary, which she framed and hung in Stedman’s room
  • The one that says BE FRI (Gayle has the pair that says ST ENDS)
  • The one with the Maya Angelou poem
  • The monthly ones created to coincide with/match the covers of O Magazine
  • The low-cut one she wears while tending to her avocado garden
  • The one with “OWN” embroidered on the crack fabric
  • The one that has First Black American Female Billionaire written in diamonds
  • The super comfy one she wore for a questionable amount of days in a row when, like the rest of us, there was no reason to get out of bed
  • The GOOP one Gwyneth gifted her but she still can’t figure out how to use
  • The tacky one a fan sent to her that says THE BIG O, which she refuses to wear, but will bust out when she’s had too many cocktails at one of her dinner parties
  • The one she wore to her 2013 interview with Beyoncé
  • The one she framed and sent to Beyoncé after the 2013 interview (same as above)
  • The feathered one she made as a craft project with Martha Stewart
  • The ones that appear in a recurring dream where she flings them at a horny studio audience (you get a thong! and you get a thong!)
  • The holiday one, which is also an advent calendar
  • The one she accidentally wore as a mask
  • The one she continues to wear as a mask
  • The days-of-the-week ones (which she threw out this year because they no longer sparked joy, but plans to repurchase in 2021)
  • The edible ones (only 3 Weight Watchers points!)
