Watch Oprah Winfrey Get Sewn Into Her BAFTAs Dress

All awards season, Oprah Winfrey has given her Instagram followers a glimpse into her red carpet prep—from her glam squad in progress to her gown selection. And before this weekend BAFTA Awards, the Lee Daniel's The Butler star added to her behind-the-scenes videos by revealing the secret to last-minute tailoring.

"It's an hour to go, and this is Raj and Giuseppe, who are literally stitching me into my gown for the red carpet," the Best Supporting Actress nominee shared in the quick clip.

Then, in typically Oprah style she sang an intro to her dress designer by belting out: Stella McCaaartneeey!

The plum colored gown from the British designer was custom made for Oprah and featured a long sleeved lace bodice and satin bow sash—which appeared to be the area receiving the sewing—and satin skirt.

The tweaks clearly worked as the 60-year-old looked stunning at the London fete later that night. But sadly this may be our red carpet last sneak peek for awhile as it is unclear whether the star—who did not get an Oscar nod for her role—will be attending this year's Academy Awards.

Here's hoping she will so we can get another designer shout-out in sing-songy form. Perhaps: Oscar de la Reeentaaa!
