Last night Reese attended the annual Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Gala in New York City. Reese looked elegant in a floor-length teal gown by Brandon Maxwell, accessorising with Tiffany jewellery. She posed on the red carpet with other celebrities including Claire Danes, Jennifer Hudson, Hayley Bennett and Ruth Negga, and spoke to reporters about why she loves Tiffany’s and her jewellery must-haves. The company are backing an initiative to stop global trafficking for elephant ivory, and Reese voiced her support for this too. We have the first few photos from the night in our Gallery (more are sure to follow), and further down this post are articles and videos from the red carpet:
Reese attended Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Sustainability Panel in New York City earlier today, to discuss the fashion industry’s role in protecting the environment and promoting sustainability. Reese also spoke about the role of women in film, as well as the importance of celebrities using their status to promote positive causes. Reese looked smart in a little navy dress, and accessorised with Tiffany’s jewellery. Read more about the event further down this post, and find the first few photos in our Gallery.

TIFFANY & CO. HOSTS ‘IN CONVERSATION’ PANEL DISCUSSION ON SUSTAINABILITY
Reese Witherspoon, Michael J. Kowalski and Dudu Douglas-Hamilton joined panel to discuss ‘The Art–and Protection–of the Wild: Preserving Earth’s Treasures.’
Tiffany & Co. hosted an intimate breakfast and ‘In Conversation’ panel discussion at NeueHouse Penthouse focused on the theme of sustainability.
Panelists included Oscar® award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon, who wore Tiffany HardWear; Tiffany & Co. chairman & interim CEO Mike Kowalski; and Save the Elephants Activist Dudu Douglas-Hamilton. The discussion was moderated by Tiffany & Co. chief sustainability officer Anisa Kamadoli Costa.
Discussion topics ranged from the rising demand for corporate responsibility and the role of business and brands to the journey of Tiffany jewels and the protection and preservation of wildlife. Mike discussed Tiffany’s commitment to environmental issues, which began 20 years ago and led to the brand paving the way for sustainable practices in the luxury industry. Reese touched on the growing importance of women’s rights and diversity in film, as well as the role of celebrity and influencers in raising awareness for crucial causes. Dudu gave a personal recollection of her family’s role in pioneering elephant conservation across Africa, combatting criminal elephant poaching syndicates, and recent successes as China begins to shut down its ivory trade.Continue reading this entry »
Iconic Harper’s Bazaar covers light up Empire State Building for magazine’s 150th anniversary
On Wednesday night, Harper’s Bazaar magazine celebrated its 150th anniversary in New York City by projecting its most iconic covers and shoots on the Empire State Building. Photos from Audrey Hepburn’s vintage spread to Rihanna’s recent Amelia Earhart tribute – plus Reese Witherspoon’s February 2016 cover – covered the entire Northern side wall of the famous landmark. The show, led by editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey, ran from 8:30 p.m. to midnight and was streamed live online.

A Fashion Show on the Empire State Building
On a typical New York night, you can see the Empire State Building lit up in color to honor a special occasion — green for Earth Day, for example, or red and blue for a Chicago Cubs World Series victory. But the building will look decidedly more extravagant on Wednesday, when Harper’s Bazaar will project 150 cover images — including of Audrey Hepburn, Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow — onto the building’s north facade to celebrate the magazine’s 150th anniversary.
The images were chosen from across the magazine’s history: There will be works from Andy Warhol and Richard Avedon, and images of Lauren Bacall and Kate Moss. The projections will be 500 feet tall and 186 feet wide and cover 42 floors of the building; they will run intermittently from 8:30 p.m. to midnight.
“What I really want is to allow New Yorkers to enjoy the greatest fashion show in the world,” Glenda Bailey, editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar, said in an interview. “It will be the greatest light show that has ever been.”
The Empire State Building installed an LED lighting system that could generate 16 million colors in 2012, and has since hosted a few of these high-definition projects, including photos of endangered wildlife and artwork from the Whitney Museum.
Planning for the project began two years ago, and needed approval from the building and from New York City. Julie Menin, the city’s commissioner of media and entertainment, wrote in a statement that the magazine “has played a seminal role in nurturing the careers of its hometown’s creative community, including Truman Capote, Andy Warhol, James Baldwin, Richard Avedon, Cindy Sherman and so many more.”
The endeavor is an initiative of Harper’s Bazaar and Tiffany & Co. Harper’s declined to say how much it will cost. “It’s wildly expensive but it will be worth every penny,” Ms. Bailey said. (The animal projections from 2015 cost more than $1 million.) For those unable to attend in person, the projections will be streamed live from Harper’s Bazaar’s Facebook page.

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 …
Oprah Winfrey was recently interviewed by People’s Jess Cagle, and she mentioned Reese.
When speaking about her new movie The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Oprah said: “I’d never played a role like that and nor have I done it enough to feel really solidly comfortable in the space. I have a lot of actor friends … like I was on set the other day with ‘Wrinkle in Time’ and I said to Reese [Witherspoon], ‘So Reese, how many movies have you done?’ and she said, ‘I don’t know, I don’t know … hundreds, I don’t know.’ So I was like ‘Oh God, please don’t ask me how many movies I’ve done.’ I think I’ve done five. It’s rare that I feel intimated, but I felt intimidated.”
