Reese attended and co-chaired the Stand Up To Cancer Standing Room Only event at the weekend, to celebrate the work Katie Couric has done for cancer advocacy. Reese wore a blue dress by David Koma, shoes from Yves Saint Laurent, and Draper James earrings, and was accompanied at the event by her husband. Read more about the worthwhile charity event below, and find photos in our Gallery.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth’s Ideal Date Night Involves Sleeping In the Next Day
Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth ended their Saturday night by dancing onstage to Jamie Foxx’s hit “Blame It (On the Alcohol)” – a charity event-turned-date-night for the couple.
The pair, who served as co-chairs for Stand Up to Cancer N.Y.C.’s Standing Room Only event at Cipriani Wall Street, told PEOPLE that the party was “sort of” a romantic outing.
Then how would the actress define a real, quality date night? “Going to a nice dinner and not having to wake up at the crack of dawn with the kids,” she said. “That’s nice.”
Witherspoon, who celebrated her fifth anniversary with Hollywood agent Toth in March, and a week earlier, her starry 40th birthday party, indicated that they usually include their children in their festivities.
“They were at my party, it was really fun,” she said. “Except for the little one [son Tennessee, age 3]. We had cake with [him] the next day.”
Reese Witherspoon’s New Role: Power Broker The actress has emerged as one of Hollywood’s most influential literary tastemakers in the book-to-screen business
Reese Witherspoon was frustrated. It was 2011, and the screenplays coming across her desk had one bland female character after another. Defined as wives or girlfriends, they were nice, respectable and, for an actor interested in character work, boring. She was drawn much more to the protagonists of the novels and memoirs she curled up with at night.
“My husband said, ‘Honey, you read more books than anybody I know. Why don’t you just option some and turn them into movies?’ ” Ms. Witherspoon recalled in a recent interview in Santa Monica, Calif.
In short order, she teamed up with producer Bruna Papandrea, launched an independent production company called Pacific Standard, and went on the hunt for challenging female characters. The pair quickly demonstrated that they could sniff out best sellers. They scooped up their first two books—Cheryl Strayed’s memoir, “Wild,” and Gillian Flynn’s thriller, “Gone Girl”—before they were published. In July 2012, just five months after the company was launched, the books hit No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list at the same time—in the nonfiction and fiction categories, respectively. Together, the films earned three Oscar nominations and grossed more than half a billion dollars.
Since then, Ms. Witherspoon has emerged as one of the most influential literary tastemakers in Hollywood. Her regular book recommendations on Instagram send Amazon rankings soaring. At a time when book adaptations remain a crucial segment of the film industry, Pacific Standard is an increasingly important player in the book-to-screen business. She and her partner have also invited some authors to adapt their own books, in the hopes of bringing new writing voices to film and television.
The 2010 Events section of the Gallery is now complete! As with 2009, we already had photos from all events, so I’ve just replaced several pictures with HQ versions and added some new shots. There are lots of fabulous photos of Reese posing with her kids and Bruiser Woods (RIP) at her Hollywood Walk Of Fame ceremony, lots of Reese looking beautiful at the How Do You Know Premiere, and over 100 gorgeous HQs from the How Do You Know press conference (always some of my favourites!). In terms of style, 2010 was the year of the cocktail dress, with Reese sporting a range of styles at the events she attended – my favourites were the EIF Benefit Evening, Vera Wang Boutique Launch, and Avon Gala dresses.
I’m continuing to work on the Public Appearances section of our Gallery, and have now completed the 2009 category. We already had photos from all the events Reese attended, but many have now been replaced with HQ versions, plus there are several additional photos too. The focal point of the year was the promotion of Monsters Vs Aliens which had a big world tour, and Reese also continued her work with Avon by attending events for them. I particularly love her looks at the Berlin photocall and premiere for Monsters Vs Aliens! Pictures from press conferences are always a highlight, too, and we have over 100 gorgeous HQs from the Monsters Vs Aliens one. As always – enjoy! 😀
As posted about on the night, Reese attended the Oscars in Hollywood last weekend. She wore a gorgeous purple gown by Oscar de la Renta gown, with Jimmy Choo shoes and jewellry from Tiffany’s – I really love this look on her! Reese walked the red carpet with her husband, and was snapped greeting friend Naomi Watts. Inside, she presented clips from two of the Best Picture nominees with another friend, Kate Winslet. I’ve now added another 240 HQ photos from the event to our Gallery, and further down this post are a couple of videos and articles about how Reese put together her look for the night.
Big thanks to our friend Lindsey for many of the Photos ^_^
Reese Witherspoon Looked Positively Regal in Purple at the 2016 Oscars
Saoirse Ronan, Rachel McAdams, and Naomi Watts weren’t the only ones who got the jewel-tone trend memo at the Oscars; Reese Witherpoon sported a stunning plum Oscar de la Renta gown that almost was another color. “Last week, it was lavender,” reveals stylist Leslie Fremar. “We remade it in a darker purple because we thought it was really fresh and looked beautiful with her skin tone.”
The body-skimming gown featured a fan-like front detail and matching back bustle, as well as an intricate black corset. “The shape of the fan was really different and something I hadn’t seen before, and the black corset was really sexy,” she says.
Tiffany earrings and four bracelets bedecked with diamonds finished the look, explains Fremar. “We didn’t want to compete with how beautiful, but simple, the dress was.”
Reese attended the Oscars tonight, looking beautiful in a purple Oscar de la Renta gown. Reese walked the red carpet with her husband, and during the show introduced a clip of one of the Best Picture nominees with Kate Winslet. We have the first HQ photos in our Gallery, and check back tomorrow and in the coming days for full coverage…

Comments Off on 2008 Events photos
Over the past month the Gallery has been updated with photos from Reese’s appearances in 2008. She had a fairly quiet year – starting her work with UNIFEM and Avon, and then promoting Four Christmases – but was well photographed at the Four Christmases premiere. My favourites from Reese this year were her stunning CMA Awards look (I love the dramatic make-up and dress), and her classic Four Christmases premiere style. Plus, make sure you check out over 100 beautiful HQ photos from the Four Christmases press conference. Enjoy!!

"It took me years to be the woman my mother raised. It took me 4 years, 7 months and 3 days to do it, without her. After I lost myself in the wilderness of my grief, I found my own way out of the woods."
