I have a fantastic and big update for you today – I’ve added almost 100 scans from Reese’s recent magazine spreads that were missing from our Gallery. This includes full spreads in US Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, and Women’s Health, reprints in various international magazines, and fashion snippets in People Style Watch issues. Check out the spread in eNews Magazine which has some gorgeous full-page photos from Wild, and People magazine’s celebration of Reese’s birthday in their March 28th issue. We also have scans from the new ‘Most Beautiful’ issue of People magazine, and from the latest issue of Glamour South Africa, which although is a reprint, does have some nice old quotes on various topics.
Reese and Draper James are featured in the new May issue of O – the Oprah Winfrey magazine. In the spread, Reese showcases items from her Draper James line whilst holding a Southern brunch for her friends. Read the article below (courtesy of oprah.com), and find the scans and photoshoot in our Gallery:
Reese Witherspoon Showed Us How to Throw a Classic Southern Party
Another perfect L.A. day made for an outdoor get-together—warm, sunshiny, breeze rippling the backyard pool. But there’s something distinctly un–Bel Air in the air. The smell, for one thing, which is almost like…homemade biscuits. Could there be carbs on the premises? And coming from the speakers—is that Toby Keith, lamenting that if women come a dime a dozen, he ain’t got a penny?
On the patio is the smoking gun: a cauldron of hot-popping fat. A deep fryer must be grounds for a citation here in the land of sea vegetables and hemp milk. Either the apocalypse has come or there’s a Southerner in the house.
Fortunately, it’s the latter. In this case, the Southern girl is Reese Witherspoon, born in New Orleans and raised in Nashville. The actress and producer loves to throw a party, and today there’s a good excuse: She’s celebrating the first anniversary of Draper James, her line of fashion, housewares, and other little touches essential for gracious living. It’s a uniquely Southern combination of tradition (a monogrammed mint julep cup modeled after vintage barware) and humor (a tote bag that says TOTES Y’ALL, which is so popular, it’s sold out twice). “I wanted to make the kinds of things I grew up with and things that would make people happy,” she says. “Southerners don’t take themselves so seriously, and at Draper James, we didn’t want to take ourselves too seriously, either.”
Southern Living magazine have named Reese one of their Innovators Changing the South, saying:
Of course we swooned when we heard that one of our favorite actresses, one who hails from Nashville, was opening a storefront and online store. But when we saw the gorgeous pieces Draper James offers, from charming accessories and dresses to classic choices for Southern decorating, we really fell in love. Even better? Draper James prioritizes made-in-America, made-in-the-South products, and the company is continually working to make the offerings even more authentically Southern.
