Reese Witherspoon in Calvin Klein at Elle’s Women in Hollywood Celebration

Posted on October 22, 2013

Someone likes herself very much at the moment, doesn’t she?


Reese Witherspoon attends Elle’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration in Beverly Hills, California in a Calvin Klein dress paired with Manolo Blahnik heels and David Yurman and Harry Winston jewelry.

And why not? She looks pretty hot. It’s nice to see her get outside her rich bitch/ladies who lunch wheelhouse a little. But only a little. This still gives off the whiff of  Country Club, but she’s working the sexy side of the room for once instead of the bitchy side or the mommy side. Could’ve used a bit more in the way of punctuation jewelry, though. And we’re afraid her tanning slave will be severely beaten when she sees these pictures. Ombre hair may be a thing, but ombre legs have yet to catch on.

    Beautiful color, great shape. Nice hair too.

  • J.E.W.E.L.R.Y. Please, for the love of all things holy. Also, a flesh colored naked shoe is pushing towards irrational anger.

    • SugarSnap108

      This woman’s aversion to jewelry is driving me insane. That’s right – I’m on the brink of insanity because Reese Witherspoon won’t wear jewelry.

      • Random Compliments

        I actually hate jewelry simply because I find it uncomfortable. However, I completely see the need for jewelry with certain outfits, and if I were a person whose job it is to be in the public eye, you bet your ass I’d rock it.

        tl;dr: I’m going insane over this too.

    • demidaemon

      NECKLACE! That’s what I am imaginarily yelling at my monitor. Also, I saw the caption that said “so and so’s jewelry,” and I was like, “What jewelry?”

  • Imasewsure

    She looks good but I really don’t like these bath towel dresses (even tasteful ones) and I hate the shoes now after seeing variations of them over and over and over and over and ….

  • She be the Regina George to my Gretchen Weiners any day.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      “Reese Witherspoon! Talk to me!”

  • Diego!

    She looks great but I hate her make up and her body make up is dreadfull too.

    • I’ll give you the body streaking as all bad, but I think her face looks great.

    • Tatiana Luján

      the skin around her eyes looks kind of gray, ¿doesn’t it?

  • Adrianna Grężak

    I suspect the ombre legs effect is a result of flash photography washing out her upper half

    • vitaminC

      The white backdrop is bouncing light onto the backs of her legs, too.

  • hughman

    Hollywood has sure changed Melissa McCarthy!

  • Glam Dixie

    Her eyes look a bit like dark holes and I would love a necklace here, but not bad. She looks pretty.

  • jw_ny

    This would be cuter with a little cropped jacket or sweater (and less zoom tan/glow…)

  • Bexxx

    I never realized how similar in the face she is to Brittany Snow.

    • alyce1213

      I think Brittany Snow looks just like Carrie Underwood, but I see a little Reese there too.

      • demidaemon

        There is a girl on The Voice right now who I swear is either Reese’s long lost twin or daughter. It’s kind of creepy.

  • Joanna

    I have to say, the lighting and camera angle on this particular red carpet is crap. Both Reese and Lea Michele look horrid, and I don’t think it’s entirely their fault.

  • alyce1213

    Impeccable fit is so important with a dress like this and I think she needs better support on top to pull up those little folds on her midriff. The color is beautiful, her fake skin color not.
    I don’t mind the out-of-season naked shoes, I think because the dress is so minimal.
    A missed opportunity to wear a fabulous piece of statement jewelry. This is the dress for it.

  • hughman

    “Miss Witherspoon, please lay on the massage table and Olga will be right with you.”

  • MoHub

    Annie grows up?

    • BuffaloBarbara

      My head went there, too. Grew up, got her hair dyed, and then accidentally fell asleep in one of the Warbucks’ tanning beds.

      • MoHub

        Glad it’s not just me. Red dress with white trim just automatically said Annie to me.

  • Sarah

    I know that color of dress is probably scary to pair with, but girl needs some lippy of some kind. Her face is getting lost in all that tan.

    • marlie

      Really, Hollywood stylists need to ban nude lipstick altogether. It’s making me cranky.

  • RussellH88

    This is the kind of outfit that is all about the fit and luckily for her it fits like a dream. She looks great here.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    She looks pretty good, though I’m not a big fan of the bright red-and-white contrast, unless one is working as one of Santa’s helpers. A little too long on the tanning, too. But otherwise, she looks nice.

  • Sarah

    Her makeup makes her look dirty.

  • ModernDowager

    She’s filming “Wild” right now–which is why the tan may be off. No tanning slaves on a 3-month hike on the PCT. Doesn’t mean her makeup has to look dirty though

    • pookiesmom

      1) There’s a film adaptation of Wild?
      2) Reese Witherspoon plays Cheryl Strayed?

      I have major, major mixed feelings about this…

      • ModernDowager

        1) yes 2) yes. It just started filming and is slated for release in 2014. Nick Hornby is writing the screenplay! Reese Witherspoon read an advance copy and bought the rights before the book was even published. She is producing it as well. From Cheryl Strayed’s Facebook and twitter feeds, she seems pretty darn happy about it.

  • TerryMH

    She looks pretty good here, but now every time I see her, all I see is a grown up Sharpay from HSM slurring “Do you know my name?” to the poor Atlanta police officer who pulled her over.

  • Ediths_Head

    Tanning slave! This is why I’ll love y’all for as long as forever is!

    • girliecue

      Word. A single TLo witticism can keep me entertained for days! Today was totally shot because all I can do is imagine the life of Reese’s poor tanning slave…

  • Crystal

    She looks really pretty.

  • formerlyAnon

    Hair and make up takes this to “relentlessly perky former cheerleader chairing or co-chairing TWO major charity galas this winter, Vice President of the PTA, interviewing for an assistant to help with her part time home based consulting business (& fill in if the sorority girl after school nanny’s sick), and no. 4 on the country club’s Ladies Singles Ladder. (Fell from no. 2 when she decided it was time to get serious about the business).”

    Why, yes, my feelings re: Ms. Witherspoon are somewhat conflicted, why do you ask?

  • marlie

    At risk of sounding like a broken record: Stop with the nude lip. And put on a necklace or some statement earrings or something. I do like this dress on her, and though I wish she’s gone with different shoes, these don’t bother me.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    She has every right to be pleased with herself. She looks better than most of us mere mortals, plus she lost the babyweight in what appears to be a nano-second (I know she had the kid back in April or something, but still!).

  • ashtangajunkie

    Not bad at all, minus the tiger striped tan. I hate the shoes, but the dress is making up for it.

  • elzatelzabelz

    Love the dress. She’s a little TAN, and could use some accessories, but a great effort.

  • jjjoy

    i like the sexy, minimalist look on her. way better than bitchy PTA mom.

  • Sunraya

    I can’t even be fair about her – after her entitled asshole episode, I can’t stand looking at her.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    the bags under the eyes really complete the look…ugh

  • Aidan B

    Needs a necklace, HATE the shoes. Other than that, not bad.

  • KT

    Wow, I think this is the best she’s looked in a while. That color is great on her, and the smoky eye is really helping this look less daytime/LWL. The accessories could have definitely been more interesting/inspiring, but she still looks good. Also she’s currently filming Wild (where she plays Cheryl Strayed, and thus, is spending a lot of time hiking through the wilderness), so I’m thinking that may actually be a natural tan. Maybe.

  • amber.

    she has been looking a lot softer as of late. i like.

  • Remember JoAnn Worley when she would open one of the doors on the “Laugh In” wall and yodel, “BOOOOOO-RING!”? That’s exactly what I’d like to say about this. Did she borrow this from Jennifer Aniston? And is Harry Winston lending only small earrings nowadays?

  • Erica Woods Tucker

    Nice to see her not in a parking lot.

  • It’s kind of boring. And not all that flattering. Plus, her hair looks like an afterthought.

  • kimiakay

    She does look softer here which flatters her. I really like the dress. Normally I hate these kind of hairstyles, but this works with this dress. The dress overcomes the shoes. Let’s face it, if she wore more jewelry it might detract from her and she wouldn’t like that…lol.
