Comments Off on Reese supports the #SpeakUpForKids children’s mental health campaign
This month, Reese is pledging her support to the Child Minds Institute‘s #SpeakUpForKids campaign, to raise awareness, and combat the stigma, of mental illness in children. Watch her special Mother’s Day video below, and find out more at speakupforkids.org.
Last night Reese attended the annual Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Gala in New York City. Reese looked elegant in a floor-length teal gown by Brandon Maxwell, accessorising with Tiffany jewellery. She posed on the red carpet with other celebrities including Claire Danes, Jennifer Hudson, Hayley Bennett and Ruth Negga, and spoke to reporters about why she loves Tiffany’s and her jewellery must-haves. The company are backing an initiative to stop global trafficking for elephant ivory, and Reese voiced her support for this too. We have the first few photos from the night in our Gallery (more are sure to follow), and further down this post are articles and videos from the red carpet:
Reese attended Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Sustainability Panel in New York City earlier today, to discuss the fashion industry’s role in protecting the environment and promoting sustainability. Reese also spoke about the role of women in film, as well as the importance of celebrities using their status to promote positive causes. Reese looked smart in a little navy dress, and accessorised with Tiffany’s jewellery. Read more about the event further down this post, and find the first few photos in our Gallery.

TIFFANY & CO. HOSTS ‘IN CONVERSATION’ PANEL DISCUSSION ON SUSTAINABILITY
Reese Witherspoon, Michael J. Kowalski and Dudu Douglas-Hamilton joined panel to discuss ‘The Art–and Protection–of the Wild: Preserving Earth’s Treasures.’
Tiffany & Co. hosted an intimate breakfast and ‘In Conversation’ panel discussion at NeueHouse Penthouse focused on the theme of sustainability.
Panelists included Oscar® award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon, who wore Tiffany HardWear; Tiffany & Co. chairman & interim CEO Mike Kowalski; and Save the Elephants Activist Dudu Douglas-Hamilton. The discussion was moderated by Tiffany & Co. chief sustainability officer Anisa Kamadoli Costa.
Discussion topics ranged from the rising demand for corporate responsibility and the role of business and brands to the journey of Tiffany jewels and the protection and preservation of wildlife. Mike discussed Tiffany’s commitment to environmental issues, which began 20 years ago and led to the brand paving the way for sustainable practices in the luxury industry. Reese touched on the growing importance of women’s rights and diversity in film, as well as the role of celebrity and influencers in raising awareness for crucial causes. Dudu gave a personal recollection of her family’s role in pioneering elephant conservation across Africa, combatting criminal elephant poaching syndicates, and recent successes as China begins to shut down its ivory trade.
Reese lends her face to designer Tory Burch’s’ #EmbraceAmbition project, which launched today to celebrate International Women’s Day and encourages women to ‘own their power’. Reese in featured in the PSA – watch below – and on the project website, along with many other female celebrities. Tory Burch will be selling #EmbraceAmbition bracelets and t-shirts, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Tory Burch Foundation, which “empowers women entrepreneurs in the United States” – shop here (US only).
Today, to challenge the cultural stigmas associated with women and ambition, the Tory Burch Foundation launched the global initiative, #EmbraceAmbition. This nonprofit campaign will encourage women and girls to voice their ambition and to own their power.
In 2004, a reporter asked me if I was “ambitious”. His question made me very uncomfortable. After the interview, a friend of mine called and said, “I really liked the article but you shied away from the word ambition.” She was right. I realized that I had bought into the stereotype that women shouldn’t admit to being ambitious – that it felt, in a way, unattractive.
Unfortunately, more than thirteen years later not a lot has changed. Even though I have learned to embrace my ambition and pursue my dreams, the cultural stigma around being an “ambitious woman” still exists. It is apparent daily, in very public and private ways; from the wealth of studies revealing that ambitious women are frequently penalized for their goals to some of our Foundation’s entrepreneurs sharing that they, “Google how to appear less ambitious.” In most cases, it’s an unconscious bias that women themselves internalize.
We all can play a part in ensuring ambition is no longer a harmful stereotype in six ways:
Talk about your ambitions – do not be afraid to own and voice them.
Be mindful of your own attitudes. Ask yourself, did I just react negatively to a woman for demonstrating her ambition?
Remember that ambition is incredibly personal. Determine what success means to you. It might be to run your own company or it might be to raise your children with integrity. (In my case, it’s both.) Whatever someone’s ambitions are, it’s not our place to judge them.
Support other women. As a friend, relative, or colleague help those around you make their ambitions a reality. When we support each other, we all do better.
Engage men in the discussion. Their involvement will help reduce the cultural biases their co-workers, partners, daughters, mothers, sisters, and friends face.
Join the movement and take the pledge to #EmbraceAmbition and own your power, your drive and your dreams.

Reese Witherspoon on What She’s Giving Her Kids for Christmas (and What She Really Wants!)
Reese Witherspoon‘s got a list, and she’s checking it twice!
The star, 40, is gearing up for the holidays by making sure all her family’s favorite things are under the Christmas tree, especially for her three children: daughter Ava, 17, son Deacon, 13 (from her first marriage to actor Ryan Phillippe), as well as son Tennessee, 4 (with her husband of five years, agent Jim Toth).
“My kids already have fond memories of our Christmas traditions,” says Witherspoon, wearing the Winter Deer Skirt ($195) from her clothing line Draper James in the photo below. “They’re definitely not grown up. They still love presents.”
So what’s she getting for them? For Ava, she’s turning to her teenage daughter to guide her. “She wants blue jeans and a cool coat,” she says. “I told her to tell me exactly what to buy. I don’t want to guess!”
Yesterday Reese attended the Baby2Baby Snow Day in Los Angeles. The event was sponsored by Tiny Prints, and kids in need were provided with a backpack of winter essentials and gifts for them and their families. Reese wore a Draper James dress, and posed with other celebrities including Jessica Chapshaw, Kelly Sawyer, and Santa 🎅
Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey Join Star-Studded Family Fun Day to Support a Good Cause
Reese Witherspoon showed off her impressive multitasking skills on Sunday during a special screening of Sing, which raised $100,000 for charity and allowed the actress to have a fun day out with her family.
The actress, 40, brought along her two sons, Deacon, 13, and Tennessee, 4, and husband, Jim Toth, to the Aero Theater in Santa Monica, where she and her Sing costar Matthew McConaughey spent an hour chatting with fans.
The special screening, hosted by Hint Water, helped raise money for Witherspoon and McConaughey’s respective foundations — Girls Inc. and Just Keep Livin’ Foundation. After the meet-and-greet with fans, Just Keep Livin’ Foundation executive director Shannon Mabrey Rotenberg introduced the two Oscar winners, who spoke about their organizations.
“I have gone to different schools in Nashville and Dallas,” Witherspoon said of her work with Girls Inc. “I’ve seen the profound impact it is having on these girls’ lives and teaching them about financial education and social media and life skills. It is giving them incredible confidence.”
Also in attendance were Robert Downey Jr. and Jennifer Garner, who brought her three kids to see the movie. In it, McConaughey portrays a koala named Buster Moon, who is desperate to keep his family-owned theater running; Withersoon, meanwhile, stars as a busy mom and pig named Rosita who spends her days caring for her litter of 25 piglet children — all while hiding her secret dream of being a singer.
