Continuing the October/November event catch-up, we now have photos from the New York Avon Walk For Breast Cancer that Reese attended last month. Reese walked, talked and posed at the event, and looked casual and comfy in a black Avon t-shirt and black trousers.
I’ve already posted a couple of articles/videos that came from this Walk, but further down this post are a few more. I love hearing/reading Reese talk about her work for Avon, as she’s obviously really passionate about it and it means a lot to her.
Reese has attended several events in the last few weeks, and I am now working to catch up on photos from them.
At the 2nd annual Art Mère / Art Père Night, which was held to benefit the LIVEstrong Foundation, Reese posed for photos with her husband Jim Toth, as well as her Mud co-star Matthew McConaughey and his partner Camila Alves. Jim’s father, James Toth Sr. was being honoured at the event. Reese looked super chic in a leopard print dress and black blazer. Further down this post is the press release for the event and a video with some brief footage of Reese posing for the photographers. And in our Gallery are 5 HQ photos from the event.

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon Talks Breast Cancer Awareness: ‘These Are The Issues Affecting Women Every Day’
“Every three minutes a woman is diagnosed, and that’s just unacceptable.”
This is how Reese Witherspoon speaks about breast cancer, a disease that more than 200,000 women in the U.S. were diagnosed with in 2007 alone. On Oct. 16, Witherspoon joined more than 3,000 men and women at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in New York City, raising more than $8.4 million for breast cancer research and care — just one of many events held throughout October, also known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Organizations such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization and the Avon Foundation use Breast Cancer Awareness Month as a way to educate the public about the disease and how to be proactive when it comes to detection. Acting as a public face of the Avon Foundation, it is this consciousness-raising role that Reese Witherspoon finds herself in. In town for the walk and to announce the foundation’s latest Global Scholars Initiative, we had a chance to catch up with Witherspoon (who was just as sweet as she appears to be on-screen) and learn more about her involvement with breast cancer education.
Witherspoon has been the foundation’s global ambassador for the past five years, and she says the experience alone has been an education:
When I was first approached by Avon to represent their foundation … I wanted to know, what were the issues on women’s minds? … Breast cancer is first and foremost on the list of concerns for women. Domestic violence is also in the top three … It was really an education for me to see that these are the issues affecting women every day of their lives.
This is a nice surprise for Reese fans – Reese is gracing the cover of the new October issue of US Marie Claire! Looking gorgeous doing so, of course. The magazine features a new photoshoot and interview, which talks about her recent work for Avon and her marriage. The magazine hits newstands in North America on September 20th (just under 2 weeks from now), so pick up a copy if you can!
MarieClaire.com have posted the article and photos at their site, and you can view them there, or read the article further down this post and find the pics in our Gallery. Scroll down this post for a behind the scenes video from the new photoshoot.
EDIT: Screencaps from the behind the scenes video have now been added to the Gallery! Thanks to Marica for grabbing the vid for us.
Last Sunday Reese was invited to attend a Reception to mark the launch of the Tusk Trust‘s US Patron’s Circle, in Beverley Hills. As one of the last engagements on their US tour, Prince William and Kate Middleton were also in attendance, as he is a patron of the charity, and Reese was seen chatting to them both … I wonder if they talked about their recent weddings!? It’s wonderful to see Reese with these two, and, knowing her excitement about their wedding, I’m sure she was very pleased and honoured to be able to meet them!
Reese looked radiant in a short orange-red dress, with her blonde hair left naturally down. 17 photos from this reception can now be enjoyed in our Gallery, and even better – they are all in perfect HQ!!
More catching up, and last month Reese resumed her Avon duties by accompanying Avon CEO Andrea Jung to Eastern Europe as part of the 16-date Avon Believe World Tour. In Warsaw, Poland, and Moscow, Russia, Reese and Andrea presented two local domestic violence organisations with a $60,000 grant each, and in Moscow Reese also took part in a press conference and posed for photos wearing the Avon Empowerment bracelet. Reese looked gorgeous, it’s great seeing her take part in these events and you can see how much it means to her.
Further down this post is the official press release for these two stops on the tour, giving you more information on the organisations they gave the grant to plus a quote from Reese about it. There’s also an official video from the event, with footage and interviews with Reese.
Photos – including HQ versions you won’t find elsewhere – from the two stops have been added to the Gallery, along with screencaps from the official video!
The new trio of perfumes is meant to capture different nuances of her personality as a mom, woman, Global Ambassador for Avon and Hollywood thespian. Each scent has a name which reads like an inspirational message: Love to the Fullest, Live without Regrets, and Laugh Often…
The Expressions collection is all about perfume as being reflective and expressive of moods and emotions, fully acknowledging their changing nature while contributing to the, hopefully, better capture of a complete, harmonious personality.
Love to the Fullest is described as a floral-oriental and as the sexiest of the bunch, meant for “the moments that you share with someone special.” It reportedly captures the glow of falling in love. It is an opulent composition featuring juicy black cherries, lush peony and floral amber with woods.
Live without Regrets is a fruity-floral scent for the woman who lives intensely every day of her life. The composition is said to be modern, optimistic, and an expression of “pure joy.” Notes include opulent flower petals, juicy fruity notes, sparkling bergamot, silky lilies and gardenia.
Laugh Often is said to be a crisp, fresh, and luminous perfume. Its personality is reportedly cheerful and full of spontaneity. There are sunny notes of citrus, mandarin, white tea, light freesia and rose.
