As posted about on the night, Reese attended the Oscars in Hollywood last weekend. She wore a gorgeous purple gown by Oscar de la Renta gown, with Jimmy Choo shoes and jewellry from Tiffany’s – I really love this look on her! Reese walked the red carpet with her husband, and was snapped greeting friend Naomi Watts. Inside, she presented clips from two of the Best Picture nominees with another friend, Kate Winslet. I’ve now added another 240 HQ photos from the event to our Gallery, and further down this post are a couple of videos and articles about how Reese put together her look for the night.
Big thanks to our friend Lindsey for many of the Photos ^_^
Reese Witherspoon Looked Positively Regal in Purple at the 2016 Oscars
Saoirse Ronan, Rachel McAdams, and Naomi Watts weren’t the only ones who got the jewel-tone trend memo at the Oscars; Reese Witherpoon sported a stunning plum Oscar de la Renta gown that almost was another color. “Last week, it was lavender,” reveals stylist Leslie Fremar. “We remade it in a darker purple because we thought it was really fresh and looked beautiful with her skin tone.”
The body-skimming gown featured a fan-like front detail and matching back bustle, as well as an intricate black corset. “The shape of the fan was really different and something I hadn’t seen before, and the black corset was really sexy,” she says.
Tiffany earrings and four bracelets bedecked with diamonds finished the look, explains Fremar. “We didn’t want to compete with how beautiful, but simple, the dress was.”
Get a Behind-the-Scenes Look at Reese Witherspoon’s Oscars Makeup Look
Reese Witherspoon is a red carpet veteran who never fails find a gorgeous beauty look to complement her award show style. For the 2016 Oscars, Witherspoon’s red-washed lip was the perfect accent to her vibrant purple Oscar de la Renta gown.
InStyle got the complete breakdown of Witherspoon’s winning beauty look from her makeup artist for the night, Molly R. Stern, and a peek at the behind-the-scenes fun as the star prepared for Hollywood’s biggest night.
“The key: Gorgeous makeup starts with gorgeous skin. I really believe in keeping things fresh and not caked on with foundation,” Stern says. To give Witherspoon her dewy complexion, Stern first prepped the actress’s skin by spritzing on an invigorating facial spray and then massaged in RéVive Intensité Moisture Serum Extrême ($365; reviveskincare.com) to lock in the moisture. She finished things off by applying RéVive Intensité Crème Lustre Day ($385; reviveskincare.com) to increase elasticity and boost the skin’s youthful glow. Since Witherspoon was going to be wearing a vivid hue on her lips, Stern treated them with RéVive Intensité Lip Balm ($60; reviveskincare.com) to ensure an even application of the lip color to last through the night.
Moving on to makeup: Stern evened out Witherspoon’s complexion by applying Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation ($76; chantecaille.com) sparingly where needed. Next, she moved onto Witherspoon’s cheeks and enhanced the hollows of her cheeks using True Isaac Mizrahi in Chestnut ($24; naturalbeautygroup.com), a neutral contour shade, and then added color to the apples of Witherspoon’s cheeks using Chantecaille Cheek Gelée in Happy ($39; chantecaille.com) and went over it with Chantecaille Cream Blush in Flair ($26; chantecaille.com) for an even dewier finish.
To keep Witherspoon’s lids bright, Stern painted her lash line with a crème liner and went over it with Chantecaille Luster Glide Silk Infused Eye Liner in Violet Damask ($29; chantecaille.com), which made the color slightly more subtle. Next, she dusted the shimmery gold shadow in the Chantecaille Luxe Eye Duo in Laguna ($58; chantecaille.com) all over the lids and under the lash line. For an added gloss, Stern topped the eye off with a coat of Jillian Dempsey’s Lid Tint in Peach ($28; jilliandempsey.com). Finally, to add even more drama to the eyes, Stern curled Witherspoon’s lashes and coated them twice with black volumizing and lengthening mascara, concentrating on the edges.
Finally, Stern finished Witherspoon’s look by crushing Chantecaille Lip Chic in Red Juniper ($36; chantecaille.com) onto her lips as a base color and brightened the wash of red by applying Chantecaille Lipstick in Poppy ($36; chantecaille.com) on top to the inner pout.
