Our Karla goes international after buying Oprah's shoes

YEPPOON businesswoman Karla McPhail has made international headlines, met Oprah Winfrey, and appeared on the Today show after buying a pair of Oprah's Louboutin shoes for $16,601.

The money went to the chat show queen's Do it In A Dress charity.

As well as getting a special callout from the star during her show in Brisbane this week, she also got a great picture.

And there was more as Karla was interviewed on national television about her purchase.

Speaking on the Today show, Karla said the shoes were a perfect fit.

Asked by former Rocky journo and Today show host Karl Stefanovic why she was dubbed "the Oprah of Yeppoon", a modest Karla referred to the good work her team did in the community and with local sporting organisations.

Karla even made headlines in the UK's Daily Mail.
