As expected, Reese took to the stage at the first Vanity Fair Founders Fair conference today, during which she spoke about being a woman in business and her recent producing work. The Founders Fair gathers female entrepreneurs from different industries to talk about why they started their companies, how they built their businesses, and the lessons they’ve learned. Reese was joined by one of her investors, Forerunner Ventures founder Kirsten Green, and the twosome were interviewed by Vanity Fair West Coast editor Krista Smith. Reese’s cute little white dress is (presumably) from Draper James. We have the first photos in our Gallery, and scroll on down this post for a short article from the event. We’ll likely have more from this event for you in the coming days …
Reese took time out of her holiday in the Caribbean to chat to fans on Facebook live yesterday. She and co-star Laura Dern also did an interview on Instagram. They revealed that they are considering a second season of Big Little Lies…

Reese Witherspoon Teams with Birchbox to Curate a Limited Draper James-Inspired Beauty Box
Reese Witherspoon‘s a serious #girlboss.
On top of running her super-successful Southern lifestyle brand Draper James, she’s starring in (and executive producing!) HBO’s latest hit series Big Little Lies and now, the 40-year-old star just teamed up with Birchbox to curate two custom limited edition boxes filled with beauty and fashion goodies inspired by prints from the Draper James spring collection.
And the best part? The box was made to celebrate Women’s History Month and appropriately named “Pretty Mighty.”
“We are so excited to team up with Birchbox — another dynamic, female-founded company, to celebrate Women’s History Month,” Witherspoon said. “We had a lot of fun putting the box together to honor all of us – mothers, sisters, friends, daughters and coworkers — as the powerful women that we are.”
Subscribers can opt out of receiving their personalized March beauty box to get their hands on this limited box filled deluxe-size samples of Reese’s favorites: Benefit’s POREfessional Primer, R+Co’s Dallas Thickening Spray (for those big Southern curls!), the Clarins Hydra Essential Silky Cream, ARROW’s Color Enhancing Lip Balm and the Davines OI Shampoo + Conditioner. “It may look dainty, but inside you’ll find powerful, high-performing products for equally powerful women — just like you,” Witherspoon says in a personalized note card included in every box.
But if you’re a true Draper James and beauty fanatic, the other limited box (which can be purchased without a subscription) is for you. On top of tons of powerhouse favorites like Dr. Jart+’s Pore Minimalist Sheet Mask and Bioderma’s Cleansing Water, for just $58, you also get an exclusive Draper James makeup pouch and jewelry tray that can’t be found anywhere else.
First-time Birchbox subscribers can sign up by March 24 to receive their own “Pretty Mighty” custom-curated Reese Witherspoon beauty box. The limited edition Birchbox + Draper James box hits stores and online March 6.
It’s the start of a New Year, and time for us to look back on Reese’s dynamic 2016 and look forward to what she’ll be offering in 2017. On the surface 2016 was a relatively quiet year for Reese, but behind the scenes it seemed as if she’d been working in overdrive! She made a few red carpet and magazine cover appearances, but Reese’s 2016 seemed to have been focused on her Draper James company and developing strong roles for women in film through her production company Pacific Standard. 💛
The start of the year bought us Reese on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, in a gorgeous, feminine new photoshoot and an interview in which she chatted to the magazine about Draper James and her career. She echoed similar sentiments about improving the image of women in film to Entertainment Weekly magazine, in a ‘beyond beautiful’ spread also including Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria, and Elizabeth Banks. The interview touched on topics from social media to their diverse careers, and the pretty but simplistic photoshoot complemented the meaningful nature of the interview.
Reese’s major public appearance at the start of the year was at the Oscars. She wore a gorgeous purple gown by Oscar de la Renta, with Jimmy Choo shoes and jewellry from Tiffany’s. Her husband accompanied her on the red carpet, and inside the ceremony she introduced clips from two of the Best Picture nominees with her friend Kate Winslet. Reese’s stylist Leslie Fremar explained the choices behind Reese’s dress: “Last week, it was lavender. We remade it in a darker purple because we thought it was really fresh and looked beautiful with her skin tone. The shape of the fan was really different and something I hadn’t seen before, and the black corset was really sexy. We didn’t want to compete with how beautiful, but simple, the dress was.”
Reese is on the cover of the new issue of People magazine, in a feature about her festive plans. The magazine features festive photos taken to promote Draper James, and in the interview Reese talks about what she plans to give her kids for Christmas, her holiday traditions, and New Years Resolutions. Find scans from the magazine in our Gallery – and be sure to pick up a copy yourself! Merry Christmas, Reese fans!
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!”
