Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" has the pedigree, star power and advertising campaign of a masterpiece -- so what could possibly distract from the 16th president's big-screen treatment?
Oprah Winfrey, of course.
The mogul quietly attended the film's world premiere in Hollywood on Thursday, where Spielberg presented the film as the closing night gala for AFI Fest.
Showing off an hourglass figure in a velvet sleeveless gown, one that will surely captivate in her forthcoming acting effort "The Butler" from Lee Daniels, Winfrey hit Grauman's Chinese Theatre with a female pal to catch Daniel Day-Lewis' turn as Abe.
And was she ever the Oprah we love -- arms spread open giving giant hugs to the likes of Tommy Lee Jones and producer Kathleen Kennedy, chatting near her seat while rows and rows of moviegoers buzzed about her presence.
