Pregnant Reese Witherspoon and Anna Paquin wear black to the Corres. Dinner: lovely?

Reese Witherspoon
Anna Paquin and Reese Witherspoon both made their first post-pregnancy event appearances this weekend at the White House Correspondents Dinner. We’ve seen plenty of paparazzi photos of each of them lately, and it was nice to see them looking relaxed and dressed to the nines for an event. They each wore similar black flowing gowns that made it hard to tell that they were pregnant, sadly. I kind of love it when newly-pregnant ladies wear tight dresses and work it, but I also get the urge to not draw attention to yourself. They were dressed appropriately for a semi-formal event like this, and their dresses hit just the right balance of looking semi-formal without seeming too prom-like.

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer

Anna was in an elegant v-neck empire waist Hervé L. Leroux gown. It’s hard to tell from this smallish photo, but the dress was actually sheer through the skirt and she had a slip underneath that hit about mid-thigh. Here’s a link to a higher resolution photo of the dress. She looks about four or five months along, although that’s just a guess and it’s hard to tell. Anna, 29, made her pregnancy announcement almost two weeks ago. It will be her first child with her husband and co-star, Stephen Moyer, 42. It will be Moyer’s third child.

Reese wore a more opaque Monique Lhuillier with a complicated tied neckline. I’m not a fan of whatever is going on at the neck with Reese’s gown. It just looks like one of those dresses that you struggle trying to figure out where neck and the arm holes are. I hate those! Still, Reese looks so pretty here and I love her flapper-inspired soft waves and simple drop earrings. She’s stunning. I would have loved to have seen her husband, Jim Toth, on the red carpet but he was probably busy at home watching the kids. Reese, 36, made her non-announcement pregnancy announcement via US Weekly on March 21, when she was reportedly just 12 weeks along. So that would make her a little more than four months pregnant, although I bet she’s a little farther along than that.

Reese went to the White House Correspondent’s dinner Vanity Fair dinner after party where she was seen hugging up on Uggie the dog. I’m jealous!

Here are some other photos of Reese and Anna. They’re both seen out in LA on 4-24-12. (Anna photos credit: KVS/ Pedro Andrade, Reese photos credit: Brabus, Event photos credit: Janet Mayer /

    Reese looks beautiful…hair, makeup, dress…perfection!

  2. liza says:

    Stephen Moyer will now have three children from three different women. There’s nothing wrong with that as he seems like a good dad. But I sure wonder what the reaction would be if a woman were in the same situation….

    • Lindy says:

      Very true. Very true.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      I can tell you: you get a lot of looks, especially when the kids are racially divergent. (Think Angelina Jolie, minus Brad and the fame & money, on a lesser scale.)

      People don’t take into consideration that the kids are from long-term relationships or failed marriages, they just judge.

    I saw photos of Reese at the airport with her husband-don’t know why there are no shots of him at the Correspondents’ Dinner. And she looks great-love the hair, the earrings-and even that dress.

  4. ladybert62 says:

    So this dinner is now the 21th century “must be seen at” event? Why are all these celebs at this event – they make it trashy.

    I have yet to see anyone who looked good.

    • liza says:

      Because….that’s the whole point of the event. All the organizations that are members of the White House Correspondents Association get a certain number of invitations to give out to whomever they want, and they give them to celebrities.

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      Thank you, I was so annoyed I didn’t even read the comments before saying something similar! Seriously!

  5. Candyland says:

    Saying it again. Don’t think you should wear a dress cut to the waist to see the President. But Anna’s dress fits. No yards of side boob, like Lohan’s.

    I like Reese’s dress.

  6. Marjalane says:

    Meh. Reese Witherspoon bores me.

  7. Candyland says:

    Reese got it right. Pregnant, probably tired. But got it exactly right. Looking lovely. Class over trash any day.

  8. Randi says:

    Lindsay Lohan wore black too. You should have her picture here. LOL!

  9. Blue says:

    Love Reese’s whole look, especially those earrings. I want them.

  10. Cleveland Girl says:

    THIS is how you wear a lovely black gown. NOT that monstrosity that Lohan had on.

  11. evie says:

    Reese dress is almost a copy of the dress that Nicole Kidman wore when she won the Oscar.

  12. Agnes says:

    their first “post-pregnancy announcement” appearance, not first “post-pregnancy” appearance, correct? ;)

  13. mia girl says:

    Fun Fact – Reese and Uggie where in Water For Elephants together. (My daughter pointed it out to me while we watched the movie last week)

    I love Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. They are a hot couple.

  14. Lisa says:

    Aw, I like Reese. Coveting those earrings.

  15. Jenna says:

    You can hardly even tell AP is pregnant. If there hadn’t been an announcement, I wouldn’t have even guessed. But gosh, do I dislike her red carpet posture and face so much. Ugh.

    Reese looks good. :)

  16. Alarmjaguar says:

    This is the only correspondents’ dinner link I’m clicking (not b/c of you celebitchy writers, you are awesome, so I’m sorry to miss your wit), but because I AM SO ANNOYED that this has become another freakin’ Hollywood red carpet event. Totally lame

  17. Cait says:

    Stephen and Anna are such a cute couple! He really is much better looking in IRL, his makeup in TB is horrible.

  18. the original bellaluna says:

    Both look appropriate and pretty.

  19. Anna says:

    How is 12 weeks “a little more than 4 months”? 12 weeks would make her 3 months along. And yes she’s probably further along, but also bear in mind that after the first baby you start showing bigger, sooner.

    • Aotearovian says:

      The piece says she was around 12 weeks when she non-announced it in March, making her a little more than 4 months along now.

  20. Camille (The original) says:

    Both women look very lovely.

  21. InTheIndustry says:

    Ain’t that the damn truth!
