If you’ve ever wanted to see fashion mogul Ralph Lauren outside of designing clothes or not driving his expensive car collection, tomorrow will be your chance. As if you weren’t already watching the last few remaining episodes of “Oprah” (yesterday and today the show’s namesake has been busy filming her last two episodes in front of 20,000+ people at the United Center), Wednesday’s episode is set to feature two firsts in the Lauren legacy: it’s the only time he’s allowed camera crews access inside his home and it’s the first sit down, on-camera interview he’s done in nearly 20 years. But when Oprah calls, especially when she won’t be calling anyone again anytime soon (at least until the once-quarterly, then monthly, then weekly specials start), you answer. Here’s a bit about what to expect…
From riding around the RRL Ranch in Lauren’s vintage 1948 jeep, and a private tour of the property that includes tepees furnished with antiques and whimsical artifacts, the hour is sure to make television viewers feel as though they have stepped inside a Ralph Lauren advertisement with the breathtaking views of the mountains of Telluride as the backdrop.
Oprah also sits down with Lauren’s wife Ricky, and the couple’s three children Andrew, David and Dylan.
Okay, so you’ll get to watch him drive a Jeep. We take the second part of our opening sentence back.
