“Practicing for when my turn comes?... lol helping pick a dress was SO fun,” she wrote. “Now...we wait for the groom to arrive in about ... 10 years - at least - I hope (or more) #monatempolaye."

Winfrey reportedly shut down the whole store to ensure the group was able to shop uninterrupted. She also took them out for a meal at Spago.

The three women were members of the academy’s inaugural class when it opened in 2007. There were 72 girls in the first class, and all of them went to college on a full scholarship.
