Reese Witherspoon in Beverly Hills

Posted on July 22, 2014

We got really excited when we saw this series of pictures.

Not for the outfit (which is lovely and cazh-chic, to be sure) or the smirk (which is standing ovation-worthy), but because we thought for a moment she was pulling pepper spray out of her bag and was about to send a paparazzo running away screaming in horrified pain without even having to break her stride.

Admit it: you’d love her more if she did it.

    Am I nuts or are those jeans too tight? My eyes see a muffin-top, but my head tells me that’s impossible. I’d also take care about that zipper, lest it fall open in public.

    • Vegas Girl

      No, you are not nuts. Which tells you how teeny tiny those jeans must be. I’m thinking they were bought for a barbie doll!!

    • Synnae

      Considering the zip is pulling and showing they are just too tight. And I also think she has a muffin top, due to getting the wrong cut of the jeans, which seems to be for curvier women.
      Before you go wtf? I swear by the levi’s curve lines and if I take the slight curve I get a muffin top I don’t have in a demi curve in the same size and washing.

    • tallgirl1204

      My first thought was “girl, those jeans are not your friend.” Because Reese is almost as pocket-sized as they come, and if these pants make her look poured-in-and-spilling-over, it is completely the fault of the pants.

      • MoHub

        Or her choice of them.

    • MoHub

      My immediate reaction as well. Not only muffin top, but the fly is gapping. I don’t care how good one’s figure is; correct sizing counts.

  • Matt Kaler

    Her fly bugs a little.

  • Gatto Nero

    Nice to see the proper deployment of a jean jacket.
    Does she act anymore, or is the parking lot tour her full-time job?

    • lunchcoma

      She actually has a movie coming out in the fall that has some pre-release Oscar buzz. I think that’s actually the reason for the parking lot tour – lots of chances to see her being normal and approachable and sober before she starts campaigning.

      • Qitkat

        Wild based on the excellent book by Cheryl Strayed. I have high hopes for this film, I hope they did right by the story.

        • Gatto Nero

          And she’s cast as the lead? Interesting.

        • lunchcoma

          I haven’t read the book, but have heard very interesting things about the movie – and in any case welcome more good films about women rather than with them on the sidelines, especially if those women are actually past 30 or so. I have mixed feelings about Reese, but I’ve seen her be very good, and I’m hoping that’s the Reese who’s acting in this film.

        • Sara Brams-Miller

          ME TOO! So psyched about it.

        • MarissaLG

          I can’t WAIT for this movie. The book was great, and from the trailer at least Reese seems like she’ll do a great job. She’s working hard for that Oscar.

        • Yolanda

          I believe she bought the rights for the book adaptation and is a producer of the movie as well as its star. Back to her jeans – that zipper looks like it’s going to give at any second. Other than that, love the look.

      • lunchcoma

        Misplaced reply to Qitkat!

    • Gloriana Reginata

      She also did a nice turn in ‘Mud’ with Matthew McConaughey – one of the best movies out in 2012, imho.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        She was good opposite Matthew, and yes, I place “Mud” high on my personal favorites for 2012.

      • KinoEye

        I’ve been debating watching Mud, since it’s on Netflix now. You and B3 sold me!

      • Carleenml

        I can’t not watch Matthew but that movie to me was just a little overwrought. I did laugh when he stripped his shirt off (I always do because I have a “drink” moment whenever he does – I swear it’s in his contract).

  • mickiemonkey

    I got out my hand mirror and tried to smirk like that but I just looked petulant. Or gassy.

  • suzq

    The jean jacket fits her better than the model.

  • charlotte

    I’m waiting for the tabloid headline à la “Reese Witherspoon’s luxury Beverly Hills parking lot worth three million $ is for sale”.

    • Brian G. Cox

      That’s the part that makes me think it’s all a set-up. Other than a hand-off for a valet there’s no possible way for one person to score street parking in BH as frequently as she does.

  • AlexisPayne

    Reese would like to show the ladies at home how you can reinterpret the B&W Red Carpet Trend of Summer 2014 for your everyday style.

  • R.A.

    I get excited anytime I see a “Reese Witherspoon” post on TLO. The parking lot tour continues to be truly glorious.

    • heybethpdx

      I do too! She’s still on my Celebrity Dislike List but now I’m entertained by this parking lot nonsense.

      It’s a super bonus that the jeans are very unflattering.

  • Sarah

    Man. She has three kids, right? I’d hate to get that pursed lip from my mom. “I’m very DISAPPOINTED in you. You are not Meeting my Standards.”

    • Why do I suspect her Standards are impossible to Meet?

      • formerlyAnon

        Not impossible. Just requiring drive, self discipline and an enormous capacity for hard work, with a weather eye out for what the neighbors, grandma, and (in her case) the tabloids might think.

        Steel magnolias raise steel magnolias, and it’s not by letting ANYbody rest on their laurels.

        • Tuneful54

          Why is why, when they lose it, they lose it Big. Now that’s entertainment.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      You know that it is so much worse to hear those magic words than to get a swat on the butt from your mom.

      • Constant Reader

        My mom can still stop me in my tracks with “First Name – Middle Name – Last Name” said through clenched teeth, despite the fact that she comes up to approximately my chin and it’s been quite some time since she had the ability to ground me or take away my Starsky & Hutch-watching privileges.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          It’s one of those magical powers that mothers develop, and they don’t lose it-ever.

      • Grumpy Girl

        Just the look alone withers me more than words can. (Which is funny because my mom by now has glasses that make her eyes look like cartoon eyes taking up half her face.)

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          I wonder if when moms deploy THE LOOK when we’re small children that it imprints on our brains and we never, ever forget that first time.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Her smirk and my smirk should get together and be bitchy over cocktails.

  • hughman

    J-Lo had on a similar Hermés bracelet in one of her street pics recently. I wonder if that is a “Thing”. Like they are all connected to Celebrity Headquarters and if there’s some Celebrity Emergency® (“Selena needs pants! Stat!”) they are in contact.


    • kerryev

      Love it, but if it were then Selena would have pants. From what we’ve seen recently, Selena really really needs pants.

      • Carleenml

        Selena in pants? Surely you jest. Crazy talk.

    • karonf

      Or they went to the same event that had the same bracelet in the gift bag. They are bound by party invitations!

    • decormaven

      Yes, it’s truly a secret decoder device. That’s how Blake Lively summoned Martha Stewart when she was in pre-wedding panic.

      • Carleenml

        speaking of — DO check out the Entertainment Weekly review of her new “lifestyle” website. It’s a scream.

        • decormaven

          Thanks! Will do.

  • Thomas

    She has that southern rich bitch style down pat, that’s for sure.

    ETA: I know celebrities get lent a lot of clothes, but does anyone else get the impression that Reese actually owns a lot of this stuff?

    • marlie

      Considering that her parking lot/sidewalk looks seem to include items that aren’t super high end*, I wouldn’t be surprised if she die actually buy a lot of it.

      *I get that Citizens of Humanity might still be out of a lot a kittens’ price ranges, but it’s a more standard department store brand than, say, Prada. Depending on the budget, “real people” could still buy this.

      • Thomas

        You’re right. I never picked up on that before. Except for her shoes and handbags, which are almost always luxury brands, looking back on her posts, her clothes have been Club Monaco, Tory Burch, Citizens of Humanity, etc., which are all upscale, but I wouldn’t consider them luxury brands. Her clothes are actually “affordable” for a celebrity.

        ETA: She even wore J. Crew once! That’s it. I’m saying she owns this shit. Maybe not all of the handbags and shoes, but most of this stuff is hers.

        • halleygee

          And I actually went out and bought that J Crew shirt! Only Oprah has had the power to persuade me to buy something just like that. Love the shirt too.

        • marlie

          I think TLo said something along the lines of “Country Club” being her aesthetic, which also totally ties into those brands. They’re absolutely the brands the the chi-chi suburbanites near me wear.

    • Sophie

      She doesn’t seem to be showing off her handbag here, so I imagine she even owns that.

    • EveEve

      Why would her publicist issue a press release to fashion bloggers and paps so they know in advance what /when/where she’s going to be wearing the garments and accessories? Answer: Because she’s agreed to hawk the goods in exchange for being given said goods. Sidewalk salesmanship – Hollywood style.

      • Thomas

        I said I think the shoes and handbags are borrowed. I think the clothes for the most part are hers.

  • Qitkat

    I am always amused by the high-end jeans jackets, because they all look alike to me. My JJill one is just as cute as this one.

    I thought the pursed lips indicate that Reese is perhaps getting just a teeny bit tired of this endless PLT.

    • Thomas

      Tired of the PLT? Never! At least I hope not. I savor the bitchy fabulosity.

  • StephanieLovesTLo

    I wouldn’t love her more, but I would dislike her less.

  • teensmom99

    White jeans and strappy high heels–yup, that’s what I’d wear to go grocery shopping.

  • The fly bugs, the smirk bugs, the tightness of the jeans bugs….I’m kinda over this chick to tell the truth.

  • MilaXX

    I love it! After watching Taylor failed Empty Purse tour, I have new respect for the performance art that is the Reese Parking Lot tour.

  • Betsy

    I kind of covet this outfit. As a busy mom, it is chic enough for me. Well, more chic than my usual sweats.

  • AlisonS

    Is it me or does she dress like her “Sweet Home Alabama” character in real life?? I swear this could be Melanie Carmichael / Smooter???

  • Jacob Bowen

    Thank you Reese for putting on the bitch face and kicking my ass. No more crying for me, I need to put on my bitch face and rock this school year.

  • prisma

    I envy her sunglasses collection.

  • Tracy_Flick

    Tracy Flick approves.

  • marlie

    OK, that cracked me the hell up. Anyway, another cute, everyday, real-woman look from Reese. These are the things that make me like her, as much as I try not to. 🙂

  • White jeans are no woman’s friend. Even the Queen of the parking lot stroll.

    • Fannie Wolston

      I have two pairs of white jeans! Held up amazingly well on a 8 hour flight and daytime tour of Paris, it could have been disaster, but i ate nothing but french bread, brie and tap water that day.

  • KT

    I was JUST thinking before I read the first line that I have gotten so much more excited to see Reese Witherspoon these days! The parking lot tour has really done wonders for her. I feel like maybe – just maybe – she actually might have a sense of humor about herself and is putting on these little smirks and hair flips as a joke?

    Oh who am I kidding. She’s taking those smirks and hair flips SERIOUSLY, GOD DAMMIT.

  • Freynika

    I inexplicably love her, and always have, even though she’d probably stick her nose up at the sight of a plebe like me. She comes off like a prissy bitch most of the time, but at least she seems to own it. Still, the pants are making her look bigger than she is. I love how the bag is just thrown on, no logos front and center. Looks like she might actually use it.

  • Sam Smith

    Need more photos of bag, please.

    • EveEve

      The bag was not meant to be part of this particular tour. Otherwise it would have been front and center and we’d have been told what it was.

  • crash1212

    Great outfit. Excellent sunglasses.

  • Danielle

    I really like the shoes for some reason.

    • kimmeister

      They’re basically the “Nudist” sandals, but with cute graphics.

    • GeoDiva

      They are a must have!

  • Sofia

    i love the way she dresses, especially her taste in heels. she always looks like she put in effort, but she never overdoes it. i don’t know anything about her personal life, i’ve just loved her to pieces since “Freeway.”

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    I can only fantasize about a Bitchface Justice League movie. Anna Wintour would be like the Nick Fury.

    • formerlyAnon

      I’d watch it.

  • alyce1213

    I like the shoulder bag so much better than her usual oversized, empty handbags. The jacket is, well, a denim jacket, what can be said? The jeans are obviously too tight. And I really can’t get on board with high heels and jeans — it never looks right to me. A more casual shoe for walking would look so much cooler and more chic.
    She’s an okay actress, maybe better than just okay, but I can’t take her. I hope she gets permanent frownies and marionette lines from that smirky face.

    • Thomas

      I used to like her when she was doing Legally Blonde and she played June Carter in Walk The Line. I thought she was fabulous in that and obviously a lot of other people did since she won the Oscar. Since then I don’t think I’ve watched any movies she’s been in other than Mud, which was a very good movie, but she only had a small supporting role in it. Now I just like her for her street style and how smug and bitchy she looks all the time because since the incident with the cops, we all know that’s her true personality.

      • alyce1213

        I liked her in Election and Legally Blonde, and give her props for being able to carry a movie – star power. I don’t know why, it’s more than just the cop incident, she just bugs me. I guess that’s why they have irrational hate lists, right?

        • Thomas

          Yup. I think she gets on my mom’s nerves sometimes cause she’s too perky lol

  • Jangle57

    Jeans do look too tight; maybe they’re just GTANYJ (girl, those are not your jeans) or maybe she’s… dare I say it? pregnant?

  • that face: alison hendrix realness.

  • lbl

    She reminds me of Emma Watson in these pics.

  • Those shoes are killer. Love, love.

  • evave2

    Okokok: if she was on one side of town on her parking lot tour, and Taylor Swift was on the OTHER side of town with her empty-purse tour, WHERE would the photogs go? If they could only get one shoot?

    Everything looks fine, I like the blouse and the SHOES are to die for. Her hair and makeup are nice and relaxed and PERFECT for on-the-street parking.
    BUT that jacket looks like the same denim jacket I bought at JC Penney in the 90s. Hey, I’ll get it out. And the pants look tight across her midsection.

    I can’t believe that the last empty-purse tour by Taylor was one of Fashion Police’s finalists for Fashion Hero. But there you have it.

  • JynxTheCat

    super cute. And yes pepper spray would endear.

    • EveEve

      Silly string would have been even more fun. The last thing this gal wants to do is scare away the paps who her publicist worked so diligently to get to the parking lot to snap her pic.

    • Shawn EH

      Maybe she could track down Taylor S. and let her have it!

  • Kathy

    Oh Reese, never change. I do so enjoy having you on my rational hate list. BTW, looking good.

  • Fannie Wolston

    Gwen should take note of this, one does not need to be lacquered up stem to stern to strut about on a parking lot tour.

  • decormaven

    Not quite sure that’s the right cut of jeans on her, but she’s rocking the jean jacket. Shoes are very cute! Power of the Parking Lot Tour prevails again.

  • Maria Parramore

    I’m going to practice that smirk for the next time I run into someone from my high school.

  • boweryboy

    Besides the verbal berating of a cop and the subsequent parking lot tour of 2014 what has she done lately?

  • quiltrx

    They seem a bit much for the parking lot tour, but those shoes are completely awesome.

    • LJCdoc

      I find myself coveting her shoes in general much more frequently then most of the rest of Hollywood.

  • NBG

    I love that her public relations MO for an Oscar-buzzy movie is the same as it was for a police incident: dress in outrageously expensive “casual” clothes and be papped in parking lots. I guess if it ain’t broke…

  • Great outfit; bravo!

  • Tuneful54

    Can I unsee the multiple images foisted on us this week of this dame and her chin?

  • gefeylich

    Oops, the 22nd. This outfit is OK for the temperature outside.
