Prior to heading to the event – which was also attended by the likes of Sacha Baron Cohen, Rande Gerbe, Kenny Chesney and Mehcad Brooks – Oprah was alerted to having kale stuck between her teeth. The media mogul took to Twitter to thank the passerby for sparing her the embarrassment.
Hamilton, who saw Winfrey’s tweet, thanked her for stopping by the launch.

Hamilton, best known for his prowess on the surfboard, wanted to enter the fashion world to give men functional but fashionable clothing options.
“I wanted to create a line for the discerning man, which would withstand functional demands with a contemporary and multi-functional edge,” Hamilton said. “I wanted to provide my contemporaries with durable, stylish yet masculine clothing that feels unique to the activity he is exploring. It is difficult to find clothing that provides the technical fabrics and tailored construction that is required to achieve this hybrid emphasized by function first.”
