Good deed queen Oprah is at it again! A few weeks ago a woman named Brandi (@Snobaby on Twitter) managed to turn a kind tweet into a wedding dress, thanks to the media mogul.

Upon seeing ESSENCE’s March cover featuring Forest Whitaker, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael B. Jordan and Oprah, in a gorgeous Brian Rennie for Basler gown, Brandi tweeted Oprah about how beautiful she looked on the cover. To the Atlanta woman’s surprise, Oprah responded:

@snobaby28 you’re right I won’t wear ever again contact my asst. and show her this tweet.

Sure enough, Brandi got in contact with Oprah’s assistant Maya and received the dress less than a week later.
