Reese Witherspoon in Monique Lhuillier at the “Shine on with Reese” Launch

Posted on August 07, 2018

Hey, girlfriend! Miss Reese is out here, celebrating the launch of yet another of her many irons in the fire and she wants you to know all about it! Why, she wore her best borrowed dress for the occasion and everything!

BUTTERFLIES AND ICE CREAM CONES, GIRLFRIENDS!

We tease because we love. Miss Reese has got a docu-series launching where she sits down with and celebrates the careers of female trailblazers and to be honest, we’re kinda disappointed it isn’t literally called “HEY GIRLFRIEND!” But we suppose “Shine on with Reese” polled well with test audiences or something. Sounds a little like a televangelist show, but that’s just us with our big city ways, not understanding the power of the Witherspoon.

Anyway, we really feel like we should hate a B&W lace dress with a butterfly motif just on principle alone, but we find ourselves inexplicably … okay with this. It’s a little stiff and more than a little precious, but the motif is kept subtle by the lack of color, so it works okay. It’s not our fave style in the world, but it suits and flatters her. We’re surprised that we kinda of like the shoes (since they’re just a bit tricky), but we wish they’d been paired with a dress that didn’t pull focus from them. You don’t need those bow-things on your ankles if you’re already covered in butterflies.
