It's a true labor of love to show up on set, at fashion shows, and at award shows year after year serving an unbroken series of lewks. Luckily, it's a labor that Whoopi Goldberg has undertaken for decades, appearing everywhere from the Golden Globes to the Met Gala in flawlessly selected couture. Goldberg is no less committed to fashion in her civilian clothes, so, to celebrate her GARAGE Magazine Issue 16 profile by Ottessa Moshfegh, we've rounded up some of Goldberg's all-time best looks—onscreen and off.
