With a new look, a new man, and newfound happiness, Reese Witherspoon lives out a fashion fantasy in the City of Light. Robert Sullivan reports.
The other day I had started Step 1 of the major overhaul to Glamour Reese Witherspoon. I spent some time going through e-mails and sorting all the contributions, affiliate requests and other things that have been piling up. And I got nearly all the pending pictures added as well as transferring all the 2005 & 2006 photoshoots (including some minor additions and replacements) and all the 2006 magazine scans from the old gallery to the new one. Check out everything here. Be sure you register / log in to see everything!
Now on to some site announcements. R-Witherspoon.com, ReeseWitherspoonForum.com and Reese-Pics.com are going to be moving servers and will likely not be updated for a week or two until the move is complete. We will be back and with some big changes very soon. Including: New designs, more gallery transfers & additions, content updates and more. Be sure to stay tuned!
Also, Reese’s Vogue cover will debut sometime next week!
Here are some previews of some of the gallery’s ‘new’/re-added things. (Part I)

Every three minutes in the United States, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer.
As a woman, a mother, and a daughter, I find that statistic terrifying. I was never naïve about breast cancer, but hearing this statistic put it all into perspective.
Women close to me have battled the disease and are now soldiers in the greater fight against it. But the moment I heard “every three minutes,” I felt vulnerable and scared as I realized that anyone is susceptible.
Tonight during the MTV Video Music Awards the trailer for Four Christmases made it’s debut in a short minute or so TV spot. Reese looked really cute and we saw a variety of scenes, I expect the online premiere any day now. It’s a strong possibility MTV will post it first so check there for now.
Update 9/10: You can watch a low quality version of the trailer snippet on Buzz Sugar. Thanks to Lindsey for the notice!
As earlier reported Reese was in Brazil yesterday as the Avon Global Ambassador. The event was “Speak Out Against Domestic Violence,” a joint campaign launched in 2004 by the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) and the Avon cosmetics company. She looked ultra pretty in a classy navy dress, hoop earrings and blue heels. The event was held at the World Trade Center hotel in Sao Paulo and lasted one hour, Reese highlighted the campaign’s aims in Latin America, including the sale of bracelets which is financing the charity. She flew back to the United States yesterday shortly after arriving on Wednesday. I’d like to thank Marcela for many picture contributions and translations!
Here is a news report regarding the press conference.
“One woman in three in the world is affected by domestic violence. There isn’t a woman in the world that doesn’t have a friend or a partner who’s actually experiencing some sort of violence against them, so I think although domestic violence hasn’t happened to me personally, I certainly know women who are dealing with this struggle every day.” – Reese Witherspoon
In a symbolic gesture, she gave one of the bracelets to Maria da Penha Maia Fernandes, a Brazilian woman who has come to represent domestic violence in her home country after she was left a paraplegic by her violent husband.
After a 20-year legal battle, Brazil in 2006 named a law after Maia Fernandes that recognizes domestic violence against women as a human rights violation, and extends a number of preventive and punitive measures as well as assistance.
According to UNIFEM, one Brazilian woman in five suffers violence at the hands of a man, and there were an estimated 2.1 million women in the country who each year are victims of domestic violence.
Domestic violence, Witherspoon said, “affects women who are famous, who are not famous, women who have money, women who have no money. This is an issue that crosses all boundaries and it certainly affects everyone.”

Check out the poster for Four Christmases courtesy of Tyler. I smell a trailer coming up soon! 😉 Reese plays Kate in the film, which opens on November 26th.
When upscale, happily unmarried San Francisco couple Kate and Brad find themselves socked in by fog on Christmas morning, their exotic vacation plans morph into the family-centric holiday they had, until now, gleefully avoided. Out of obligation—and unable to escape—they trudge to not one, not two, but four relative-choked festivities, increasingly mortified to find childhood fears raised, adolescent wounds reopened… and their very future together uncertain. As Brad counts the hours to when he can get away from their parents, step-parents, siblings and an assortment of nieces and nephews, Kate is starting to hear the ticking of a different kind of clock. And by the end of the day, she is beginning to wonder if their crazy families’ choices are not so crazy after all.

Avon Global Ambassador, Reese Witherspoon, will travel to Sao Paulo, Brazil to celebrate the success of the company’s first-ever global fundraising product, the Women’s Empowerment Bracelet, which has sold 1.5 million since launching in March.
Reese will be joined by female luminaries, Nilceia Freire, Brazil’s Federal Secretary for Women Policies, Ana Falu, UNIFEM Regional Director for the Southern Cone, and bio-chemist and domestic violence survivor, Maria da Penha.
The Avon Women’s Empowerment Bracelet was created to raise awareness about the need to speak out against the violence that affects women globally. In support of this mission, proceeds from the Women’s Empowerment Bracelet will go to the Avon Empowerment Fund, which will contribute to the UNIFEM-managed UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women. The first $500,000 from bracelet sales have been matched in 2008 by the Avon Foundation for a total donation of $1 million for new grants by the UN Trust Fund, representing the single-largest one-year corporate contribution to-date. Additional funds raised will support local domestic violence programs in each country Avon is located.
