Reese Witherspoon in Elie Saab, 10 weeks after giving birth: cute & appropriate?

These are some photos from last night’s “Beat the Odds” Awards for The Children’s Defense Fund in LA. Reese Witherspoon was the biggest name there, and she’s apparently on the board of the Children’s Defense Fund, which I didn’t know and I have to give her props for it. I believe this is the first time Reese has walked a red carpet since giving birth to Tennessee James Toth on September 27th. So… it’s been about ten weeks. And Reese has pretty much snapped back into place, body-wise, although I’m sure she’s wearing Spanx and all. Her LBD is Elie Saab. It’s pretty and kind of boring. Also: I think her Louboutins are too big for her? That’s a lot of toe cleavage. Last thing: I’m tired of her sideswept bangs.

Speaking of bangs, here’s New Girl’s Hannah Simone. I think Hannah is really pretty, but every time I see her, her bangs are thicker and thicker. It’s gotten out of hand. She would be super-pretty without them.

Alexis Bledel is so, so pretty. Ridiculously pretty. It just struck me – she looks a lot like Emily Deschanel, I think. Alexis could totally be a Deschanel.

I really like Zoe Saldana’s shift dress. Super-pretty and perfect for the occasion.

This is the first time I’ve ever seen Conan O’Brien’s wife Liza. She’s really pretty in a very sophisticated and classy way, right? Well done, Conan.

    Well done, Reese. You’ve achieved the impossible and made an Elie Saab (Elie Saab!) dress look cheap and boring.

  2. someone says:

    She looks pretty. Sure she hasn’t lost 100% of the weight yet but she’s doing great.

  3. Becky says:

    Hannah simone has beautiful hair. The actress who plays the reporter/ terrorist in Homeland does too. their hair literally distracts me.

  4. serena says:

    I love Alexis, she’s so damn pretty. Such big and sweet eyes, so lovely.

  5. Apples says:

    That Hannah girl is very, very pretty but her bangs are out of control. What is she hiding?!
    Conan’s wide is classy and she has great athletic legs- tennis?

  6. pancake says:

    I actually love Hannah Simone’s hair…girls got a massive widows/devil’s peak and she looks way better with the bangs!

    Reese looks beautiful in these photos. While I’m not the biggest fan of Reese, I admire her for being on the board of the Children’s Defense Fund. She’s setting a good example -wish other stars or starlets would follow her lead with charity work and dedicate their lives to higher causes. How much good they could do.

    Conan’s wife must be REALLY tall even without heels if she’s that close to his height with heels. That man is one lanky giant.

    I really like the color of Zoe’s dress.

    In the O’Brien pic you can see the regular carpet under the red carpet and the pattern makes it look like it’s moldy. Or a Rorschach test.

  10. Becks says:

    She looks okay, still has a little more weight to lose.

  11. Ann says:

    Reese looks fine, but enough with the black/lace/sheer dress look. Can designers come up with something new and original, please? This look is so overdone at this point. Every red carpet is filled with it. Yawn.

  12. Katyusha says:

    Uhhh, am I the only one who thought the backdrop had penises scribbled on it at first?

  13. Nashville Girl says:

    It took me a couple seconds scrolling through to realize Alexis wasn’t a Deschanel. She is truely lovely.

  14. Bird says:

    I think Liza O’Brien is so beautiful! Reese bugs.

    I try and jump on the Reese Bugs bandwagon a lot, try to see if I’m missing something, and I just can’t. She’s too damn perky, and seems to keep it real. This dress on her is not my favorite. It’s like an overdone, slightly slutty LBD, and she’s 10 weeks into new mom-dom, I kinda wish she’d have tried something more sophisticated than sexy. Something like what Drew wore the other night. I almost never see Reese in dressed up pants, though.

    Alexis is so interesting. Her fashion choices are always just different enough from the norm to be quirky without being try-hard.

    I love Zoe’s dress! I wish her face were a little more under control. It’s like her foundation got skipped entirely in favor of a “natural glow” or highlighting or something, but it fails. It looks like she’s put on a few much needed pounds, too, which look great on her. I read she used to struggle with an eating disorder, and her skinny-almost-frail frame she’s carried at times definitely makes me wonder.

  16. Lee says:

    Alexis is very, very pretty. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a negative comment about her. Alexis seems to be almost universally well liked.

  17. KellyinSeattle says:

    I think they ALL look good, except the bangs. Is Conan completely retired now?

  18. dahlianoir says:

    Daddy deschanel has A LOT to explain LOL

  19. Kosmos says:

    Reese looks very good in this ensemble….sometimes,her outfits are not well chosen, but this one is great on her…I like Conan, have never seen a pic of his wife before. She looks nice, except for the root growth in her hair. Why don’t people fix themselves knowing they are going to be at an event, hmmmm.

  20. tennille says:

    Alexis being tagged as just pretty is sort of an understatement; she’s just truly beautiful inside & out. She also had a great fashion sense. Celebitchy should also/try to feature her MORE though she’s no mediawh0re so unlike her somewhat galpal Blakey Fakey Lively.

    Reese is gorgeous. I love her. And her fringe.
