Reese Witherspoon in Étoile Isabel Marant in LA

Posted on March 21, 2014

It’s windy out, and future lifestyle guru and part-time accessories model Reese Witherspoon does not have time to show you all the parts of her outfit.



Reese Witherspoon out and about in Los Angeles, California in a Étoile Isabel Marant dress paired with a Current/Elliott jacket, a Chloé bag, and Rag & Bone booties.

“Fine. Here it is. Get the look for less. No, wait. Get it for full price. I’m working on commission. Listen, I’ve really gotta go. I’ll be modeling a Chanel bag in the parking lot outside my lawyer’s office in Beverly Hills in an hour.  See you there!”

    Everything above the ankles is working together. The booties are cute but I don’t think they go.

    I kind of love her exasperated expression. I’m reading that as “Dammit, I wish you guys weren’t everywhere I go, but I can’t hit you, so I’m gonna grit my teeth and walk fast.”

    • marlie

      I get “there’s no way I’m going to let my hat blow off and have you guys photograph me chasing it down the street, much less in a dress this short.”

      • Sophie

        I get “There’s no way I’m staying in this wind and short dress a minute longer than necessary and have you guys photograph me à la Marylin Monroe.” Risky business, that.

  • gayle

    On the one hand I really do not like her but on the other hand I want to raid her closet.

    • sk8tfan

      I want her personal shopper to be my personal shopper

  • halleygee

    For some reason I am starting to love her so much.

  • Anna

    On this week’s episode of Touring Parking Lots with Reese Witherspoon…

    • That comment came from Out of the Blue. (Couldn’t resist.)

      • Glenn Johnson

        I gave my brother a Napoleon world tour t-shirt. All the dates in Russia were cancelled.And this is Ginny, hijacking the account again!

    • KinoEye

      If I had lots of money and nothing better to do, I’d have t-shirts made up with all the dates and locations of the Parking Lot Tour. Like a concert tee. A picture of her epic bitchface on the front with “Parking Lot Tour 2013-2014” or something. And I’d give them away to all BKs for free!

      • Anna

        Nice! I like the way your mind works. My best friend and I have had in-depth conversations about what we would do with our very own t-shirt printing press.

        • Aside from ruling the world under a cotton poly-blend fist?

          • Anna

            And that’s just for starters!

      • Skippymom1

        I would pay you for one of these. It would go right next to my Clapton ’88 tour shirt. Epic idea. 🙂

      • Fuchaforever

        Your words are inspiring!

    • Yes!!! Oh so VERY strong!

    • Kent Roby

      So true! She’s probably running off to rumble behind a dumpster with a Tiffany celeb, who, of course, would look around and say “I think we’re alone now”.

  • marlie

    I still hate those booties. The rest of the outfit is just “meh.”

  • gabbilevy

    Don’t like the hat any better the second time around Reese. Stop trying to make felt happen.

  • Someone heard that Jem movie was being made and went out as Jerrica Benton.

  • Shawn EH

    She’s such a multi-tasker!

  • MilaXX

    Not loving this. It just looks like she forgot to wear pants.

    • 3boysful

      Seriously. Just because the front point of the hem comes within reach of your knees doesn’t mean it’s ok. And Reese is tiny–can you imagine this “dress” on a statuesque gal?

    • CT14

      Should have read comments, cause you said it first.

      It looks like a shirt/tunic/thing that needs pants.

  • formerlyAnon

    I hate the boots but they are perfect for the affected, privileged “let’s do lunch” paragon of successful-still-striving-but-see!-still-in-touch-with-the cool-kids she’s portraying.

    And, yeah. The power of the stupid aren’t-I-hipper-than-the-other-rich-moms-from-the-country-club hat continues to twist my admiration/hate into hate/hate. Another appearance and it may be cemented into hate/Hate/HATE.

    • demidaemon

      I’m still on the admiration, because girl is stubborn, and I can’t help but appreciate that.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    I wish her people had the courtesy to post the time and location of her future parking lot tours. I want to know when she’ll be at one near me.

  • hughman

    Pretty sure this is just a dry run for Coachella.

  • sagecreek

    She really is the Queen of the Parking Lot now, isn’t she?

    But I do love this outfit. (She says, defiantly but yet a bit tentatively, not having scrolled down to the rest of the comments.)

    • formerlyAnon

      You get to love it no matter what anyone else thinks!

      • B_C_J

        Amen. All of our opinions are valid.

  • Sofia

    i. hate. booties. when will they end????

    • Heather

      I like booties, WITH JEANS. Hate them with skirts. (They’re great for those of us in colder climes – in these weird-weather days where it’s not cold enough for a knee boot, but not warm enough to go the ballet-flat-sans-socks route.)

  • Granny panties

    A faux denim jacket. Barf barf barf. Pay some minion to break in a real one for you. My younger slimmer sister used to help do my jeans for me.
    Nice bag, but her and he parking lots are really getting on nerves.

    • kimmeister


      • Granny panties

        Not cotton, (looks poly or spandex containing to me) painted on distressing, I find this tacky.

    • When I was a teenager, I’d break in my mother’s new shoes for her.

      When I was in Brentwood yesterday, I looked for Reese but couldn’t find her. I must have been in the wrong parking lot.

  • Krysta

    Oh man. That bag! Those boots!

  • Miss wks

    That hem is just NASTY and should be tested for STDs…

    • Fuchaforever


  • DesertDweller79

    Once again rendering the same brimmed hat useless since she isn’t wearing it to actually block sun from her face. In fact, she is having to hold it on her head lest the wind blow it away. WTF is the point of that hat, then?

    • formerlyAnon

      To fetchingly frame her face, of course. And to tie her look in to some imagined hip community of poorer-than-her-but-interestingly-so people.

  • Griffinqueen

    I can’t explain why, but I have a irrational hatred of carrying a bag that way. That elbow hook, hand poised in mid-air. What is that? Why does it make me so angry?

    • alyce1213

      It really bugs me too. It’s so awkward and unnatural looking, and never feels right. And she’s got a shoulder strap for cryin’ out loud.

      • Griffinqueen

        Is it to show off the jewelry and manicure? I think that makes it a little more obnoxious. You’re exactly right that it is unnatural-looking—because it IS unnatural. Would you ever hold your arm that way if there was no purse involved?

        • alyce1213

          Only in self-defense!
          We’ve seen so many lady stars wear it that way — logo showing (if there is one) — for status, contractual obligation, etc.

          • Carrps

            Heh, the Kleier womenfolk on “Selling New York” all do this with their Birkins. I think their arms (‘specially Mama Kleier) must have arthritic elbows from always carrying their bags like this.

        • kimmeister

          For me it’s because my shoulders are slopey and shoulder straps just slide off.

          • Griffinqueen

            So are my shoulders. So….hold it by the handle?

          • kimmeister

            Yes, in the crook of your elbow.

          • I also hate the Kleier elbow crook. Seems to be the thing in New York. In LA, we all wear shoulder bags, but you can beat the slopey shoulder problem (which I have) by wearing a cross body bag. It’s incredibly comfortable and really feels good for your back. Unfortunately, those with very large breasts don’t seem to be able to wear a strap across their chest.

          • SophieB210

            Me too, can’t do shoulder straps at all, and holding it by the handle ties up a hand. Unlike the stars, I’m usually carrying my own shopping bags/computer case/lunch box so the elbow crook leaves a hand free to open the car door.

    • MilaXX

      I do. No idea why, I just do sometimes.

    • SusannaGA

      Sincere question here: What is the proper way to carry a satchel? (Assume it has no shoulder strap.) I never know what to do with my hand when I carry it over my arm, and I feel like a little old lady when I hold it dangling from my hand. Advice?

      • Griffinqueen

        I guess I never identified it as “old lady” to hold it by the handle. Interesting interpretation.

        • SusannaGA

          Yeah, old lady as in Queen Elizabeth. That, or it makes me feel like a little girl playing dress-up.

      • SophieB210

        Cup of coffee in the bag hand works, or a smart phone. Otherwise turn your palm towards your shoulder and let your wrist go slack. Practice not smiling at the paps until it feels natural.

  • Lucinda Head

    I always have questions about this. Is an assistant standing just out of frame holding her actual things and a half-eaten sandwich? Do they coordinate the outfits with the parking lots?

    • Glammie

      What, you think she eats? Sandwiches with gluten and carbs?

      • demidaemon

        Obviously, she is mainlined nutrients via IV, as all parking lot stars are.

  • Glammie

    Ah, there’s my bitchy Reese working to look hip, relaxed and *fun* in an ongoing effort to resurrect her public image. Cute, don’t like the sunglasses though and her hair could use some lowlights.

    You just know she’d feel more at ease in a twinset.

  • B_C_J

    Hate this from head to toe

  • ballerinawithagun

    I will always love Reese for her old movies, Election and Freeway. If you haven’t seen them, they are great movies and she plays very unexpected roles.

    • Carrps

      Me, too, but then she became a romcom monster.

    • Alloy Jane

      Yes! “My dick may not work but I’ve still got my smile!” If you ask me, her Legally Blonde role was unexpected considering those other movies. Lets not forget Cruel Intentions!

  • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

    It looks like a beach coverup forced into action with some other random pieces….

  • nannypoo

    She found time for all these accessories yet she forgot her pants.

  • Imasewsure

    This is ugly from the tip of her John Mayer hat to the bottom of her cute (but wrong choice here) R&B booties. She bugs…

  • stubbornthoughts

    I’ll be huddled in the corner, alone, loving this outfit.

  • Ediths_Head

    Do the visible socks bother anyone else? I know it beats stankboot, but the combination of sweat socks, beach cover-up, lady who lunches bag, and hipster hat is too confusing.

  • sundaynightaddict

    Anybody have a line on that necklace?

  • Sunraya

    Hate the booties. Dislike Reese and her bitch face (her natural look!) seems to be back.

  • Danielle

    If its so windy you have to hold on to your hat, maybe pants would have been a better choice.

    • Alloy Jane

      It was nice and warm yesterday and the breeze didn’t kick in until the afternoon. Not sure what weather does in other parts of the country, but shit comes outta nowhere here. Like, up until about 20 minutes ago, it looked like rain. Now the clouds have parted and the sun is shining. Weather systems are good for keeping you on your toes.

  • Sabin

    I misread the bag as “ParTAY,” and was trying to figure why how such an upscale looking purse would have such a frat-boy name.

    • Alloy Jane

      Me too! Although I didn’t realize it wasn’t “ParTAY” until I saw your comment. :-p

  • Hate the hemline.

  • Exactly. It’s so ‘outfitty.’ Reese Witherspoon: Catalog Model!

  • Alloy Jane

    She looks like a fashionable Satyr. Love the outfit, and really, I still like her. Freeway will always be one of my most favorite movies. She will always be that girl.

  • kimmeister

    Her bracelet and watch totally clash.

  • want. Outfit. NOW. *crying* must have bag! Must. Pay rent- NO! BUY BAG!!! BUY IT!

  • cocohall

    That is a whole lot of look for just running errands.. . . . The hat, the bag, the booties, the gold cuff, the gold necklace, the shades, the jacket, the grimace that says “let’s just get this over with.” I dunno, it is hard to “blend in” when you’ve ticked every box on the accessories worksheet – you might as well stopped pretending that you don’t wish to be photographed and just smile. Still, I think she looks cute, if a bit pretentiously “styled within an inch of her life” And I would very much like the bag in grey sent to my home.

  • conniemd

    Love the bag. The color is scrumptous. The rest – meh.

  • Hoffa_w_HerHead

    I remember when she used to be likable.

  • Fuchaforever

    Every time we get a “Queen of the parking lot” photo it’s a such a treat!!! Keep ’em coming Reese! Lol

  • Big Bear

    The future is Electric Youth.

  • CT14

    It’s not too short, but I still feel like it needs pants. Skinny ones.

  • uprightcitizen

    Dear Hollywood:

    If you’re going to buy a hat, please buy one that fits on your damned head. I know you all have enormous noggins, and you want to make sure that your face is visible at all times, but this nonsense is getting ridiculous. As proof, I offer the lovely Miss Witherspoon, who is now forced to walk around like she’s playing a game of “Mother May I” and isn’t allow to put her arm down, lest her chapeau fly away. Please consult a movie or magazine from the 30s, 40s, or 50s to figure out how a hat is supposed to work … you know, to keep the sun off your face or something.

    Thank you.

  • decormaven

    If you’re going to wear booties, wear a socklet that can’t be viewed above the bootie line. Despite that minor niggle and a dress that’s about to cross over to tunic territory. this is another great look from Parking Lot Tour ’14.

    • wisdomy

      Reese has a bootie proportion problem. When she wears them with skinny jeans she often has a strip of naked ankle showing, and now this.

  • LuisaNL

    i love that dress, no, i NEED that dress. she can keep everything else.

  • Sophie

    I feel that the original dress looks more like a dress by virtue of being knotted a bit lower. The hem in both cases still makes it look like a shirt, and the bag and shoes seem too heavy for the dress fabric. Bah.


    Cute but who’d guess this is a $4,000 outfit…

  • MannahattaMamma

    You could put a german shepherd in that damn bag. what really is the point? it’s going to leave bruises on her forearms, and hey THAT is an attractive look: le bruise de chloe”

  • SparkleNeely

    I like this outfit. While she does seem conceited, I have to admit, 95% of her clothes work for me. In other words, I covet her wardrobe and think she generally has good taste.

  • Mia Moreno

    Cute minus booties. She’s living the California Girl life. Kinda…

  • SierraDelta

    Is she wearing socks?

  • suzq

    “If I lose this hat, Pharrell’s gonna KILL ME!”

  • SweetJess MeanGreen

    Does she even act anymore? Why are they always taking her picture?

    Anyways, I don’t like the hipster cowgirl look she has going on. Wack.

  • J. Preposterice

    I love those booties, I covet those booties, but I do not love those booties over white athletic socks with that dress, no sirree bob.

  • quiltrx

    Love that bag! Does anyone else (I think you must be above a certain age) see leather that color and automatically think “Aigner”?

  • carnush

    Oh man, I cannot wait to be able to wear something like this. I’m wearing three layers as I write this, and fur boots.

  • AshleyDeHaye

    The hats! Ugh, so, so bad on so, so many people. A hat pushed back on the head like that will never say anything to me besides “Karma Chameleon”. Ridiculous.
