Also on the show, Alex received $10,000 in gift certificates from Express, www.expressfashion.com. To help her pick out new clothes, Oprah took Alex on a shopping spree at Beverly Center in Los Angeles, California, www.beverlycenter.com!
With the team of fashion experts at Express, Alex has plenty of cute, sassy little outfits to choose from. She loves black, but punches up her wardrobe with some pink and orange. And she tries on dozens of new outfits, modeling every one of them for Oprah!
"This is exhausting, people!" Oprah exclaims. "And I'm not even the one trying on the clothes. You can get shopping overload. You need to relax, take a break, come back, start again."
And after adding everything up? It's just $1,835!
"For all of that ," Oprah says. "You still have $8,000 to spend!"
