In the April edition of Essence magazine, CNN's "American Morning" entertainment correspondent Lola Ogunnaike recently discussed with Pamela Edwards her move from print to television.

Lola Ogunnaike on how her personal style changed: You're not dressing for yourself anymore. You're dressing for viewers.

Lola even goes further by saying she's wouldn't mind being a trainer because "you wear sweats all day and make people look fabulous".

The former New York Times culture reporter also dished out a few of her favorite things which include a red patent leather Christian Louboutin pump, Marc Jacobs "daisy" perfume, a green Chaiken dress, and a purple Catherine Malandrino jacket.

Lola on Oprah Winfrey: It's the only time in my career that I've been starstruck. Oprah's so regal. I almost kiss the ring!

Lola however failed to talk about the huge ring on her wedding finger...hmm!
