A slightly smaller update today than previously – the 2016 TV Appearances section of the Gallery has been updated. We already had photos from most of the appearances but there are a few additional photos & screencaptures, including from Reese’s interviews on Ellen & Jimmy Fallon. Reese did a bit of promotion for Draper James and Sing in 2016, but was relatively low profile compared to the previous few years!
Most available videos have already been posted – browse through our 2016 news archives to watch them, and find the clip from The Project below.
Get in Bed with Reese Witherspoon! Draper James x Crate & Barrel Sheets and Pillows Are Here
Draper James is launching bedding!
On Tuesday, the brand, founded by Reese Witherspoon, announced the launch of a bedding collaboration with Crate & Barrel that features duvet covers, pillow shams and sheets. The Willow Collection is the latest in an ongoing collaboration that has so far included dining and entertaining essentials.
In true Witherspoon style, the line has plenty of Southern charm, with designs featuring a classic blue and white leaf pattern and trellis motifs.
Prices range from $50 (for a set of two standard pillowcases) to $210 (for a king-sized sheet set), with many variations in between. A printed lumbar pillow costs $90, while a solid euro sham rings in at $70.
The Willow printed duvet cover goes for $200 for a king-sized bed, and features interior corner ties and pearlized buttons for a ladylike touch.
Witherspoon’s new bedding line is an extension of Draper James’ collaboration with Crate & Barrel, and joins other products such as placemats, napkins and dinnerware sets, as well as sun hats and printed tote bags emblazoned with phrases like “Hello, Sugar.”
Reese graces the cover of the new February issue of US Vogue! The magazine features a story on her as the “moral compass of Hollywood” (which is a great title for her!), and features an extensive new interview and a new photoshoot – including a photo with Betty and Ava. It’s a fantastic article exploring how Reese’s career has developed, and focuses mostly on her recent move into production and business; there are also some great quotes from Cheryl Strayed, Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep. I also liked reading about where her Oscar is, and that she has hardbound copies of scripts from her movies!
Read the full article below, and find high quality photos from the cover and the shoot in our Gallery. We’ll have scans for you soon. Make sure you pick up a copy when you can!
Reese Witherspoon: Activist, Advocate, Hollywood’s Moral Compass
The first time Reese Witherspoon found herself suspended from school was in third grade, when she was caught running a custom-barrette business from her desk. (She painted store-bought barrettes and sold them at a profit; when her paint pens leaked onto her desk, she was apprehended.) Another time was during her junior year, at a private girls’ high school in Nashville, when she complained to her English teacher that the work they were doing wasn’t challenging enough. Witherspoon was in many ways a model student—good grades, popular, a soccer player and cheerleader—but she also had a reputation for telling teachers what they were doing was wrong.
“I always tended to be outspoken with my opinions,” she says. “Whether they were appropriate or not.”
More than two decades later, Witherspoon is still fighting the status quo. Insofar as Hollywood is an extreme version of high school, a fishbowl of fragile egos, insecurity, and often-misdirected sexual energy, she has taken it upon herself to be a champion of the overlooked and the underestimated. She may still bear the imprint of the perky-blonde roles that kept her in American-sweetheart mode for the better part of two decades, but something’s changed beneath the surface. Witherspoon has become a formidable businesswoman, launching a company that has a hand in just about every imaginable sector of contemporary media, and she’s become a formidable activist as well, fighting for greater representation in Hollywood of people of color, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and—most of all—women.
“The idea is to put women at the center of the story,” Witherspoon says, sitting barefoot and in jeans in the kitchen of her sunny, sprawling Los Angeles home as her three dogs—a German shepherd named Nash (short for Nashville), a French bulldog named Pepper, and a lab named Hank—amble and snort among the rooms. “I was sick of making movies where I was the only female lead on the set. I was sick of seeing scripts where there was one female role, badly written, and yet every actress in town wanted the part because there was nothing else.”
There is perhaps no greater example in the history of television of putting women at the center than Big Little Lies, the HBO sensation that picked up eight Emmys in 2017. Witherspoon executive-produced the series with Nicole Kidman, with whom she also stars alongside Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz, and Shailene Woodley. In the second season, which airs in late spring, Meryl Streep will bring the show’s number of female leads to six.

Inc.com have published their list of their 100 most impressive female entrepreneurs, and Reese is included:
100 Women Making Money, Creating Jobs and Changing the World
They are scientists, creatives, MBAs, data-nerds, and visionaries. For some, it’s the first time they’ve ever started a company. Others have been at this for decades. The Female Founders 100 are the entrepreneurs Inc. has been most intrigued by in the last year, whose smarts are rattling industries far and wide.
Hello Sunshine/Draper James
Every year seems like Witherspoon’s year, but the past few set records. In 2016, she launched Hello Sunshine, a new storytelling vehicle that aims to change the narrative around women–then went on to produce, star in, and win Emmys for HBO’s Big Little Lies while running her fashion and homewares brand, Draper James. Whether it’s through Hulu and Apple TV–she’s locked in development deals with both–her own on-demand TV channel, or her book club rivaling Oprah’s, Witherspoon is channeling her smarts and financial power to fix the gender imbalance in entertainment.

Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James Inks New Eyewear License
Marchon Eyewear subsidiary Altair Eyewear Inc. is going into business with Hollywood.
The firm has signed a licensing agreement with Reese Witherspoon’s Southern charm lifestyle brand Draper James. The partnership will see Altair design, manufacture and distribute Draper James optical product. The line holds a sunwear license with B Robinson Optical Inc.
Eyewear will become available to the public beginning in March 2019, and will be on view to wholesale accounts at Vision Expo East. According to the company, the styles will “take cues from Draper James’ vibrant, upbeat ready-to-wear and accessories collections, celebrating femininity with a contemporary take on Southern charm.” The line will range in price from approximately $160 to $215.
Witherspoon, Draper James’ founder and creative director said of the endeavor: “I am thrilled that Draper James is partnering with Altair Eyewear Inc., a leading expert in optical eyewear, to create a new line of glasses. As a lifestyle brand, I feel it’s important to continue to add new categories that meet the everyday needs of our customers both in style and function.”
Marchon’s president and chief executive officer Nicola Zotta added of the partnership: “We are excited to embark on this venture with Draper James, a unique brand with a fresh point of view. We look forward to partnering with Draper James and Reese Witherspoon on expressive optical eyewear collections that complement the brand’s lifestyle and extend the current assortment into an exciting new category and market.”
To celebrate the arrival of Spring, Draper James and Crate & Barrel have co-designed a new range of home decor essentials that “captures the modern, breezy spirit of Southern get-togethers as the season heats up”. Reese told People.com of the range that “this charming collection of outdoor accessories is perfect for your next backyard dinner party with friends and family or an afternoon picnic at the beach.” “Growing up in the South, I’ve learned to love presentation and entertaining, which is why I’m so excited for the Draper James [heart] Crate and Barrel co-branded collection. It perfectly captures the spirit of Southern get-togethers with a blend of modern style,” she added.
