Reese Witherspoon celebrates her SAG & GG noms in Balenciaga: pretty in pink?


Here are some photos of Reese Witherspoon at Wednesday night’s LA premiere of Inherent Vice. Can I just say… I completely forgot that Reese had on-screen history with Joaquin Phoenix. Like, I’ve written about Inherent Vice a few times, and I just didn’t put it together that this was an on-screen reunion for the Walk the Line lovers. Did I ever tell you guys about my theory that Joaquin and Reese had some kind of thing while they were working together on Walk the Line? It was towards the end of her marriage to Ryan Phillippe – although they managed to grin and bear it throughout the awards season – and Joaquin always seemed to have a special affection for Reese. I have no idea if it actually happened, but I prefer to think that it did.

For the LA premiere, Reese wore this pretty pink Balenciaga dress. It works. It works on her, she styled it appropriately, and it wasn’t too “look at me!” especially given that her part is this film is supporting. Reese hasn’t really been killing it on the red carpet this fall, but she hasn’t worn anything bad either. She’s been mixing it up, trying different looks, and I’m actually excited to see what she does for the awards shows.

As it turns out, Reese’s Oscar campaign has been working out pretty well. She got a Golden Globe nomination and a SAG Award nomination, and there’s every reason to believe she will be on the Oscar shortlist in January. I actually think Reese is one of the “sure thing” Best Actress nominees, along with Felicity Jones (Felicity is surging) and Julianne Moore. Everybody thinks that Julianne will definitely win, which means that this race could get a major shakeup if the SAGs or Globes anoint someone else. The question is also: “Who will get the other two Best Actress slots?” Jennifer Aniston? Rosamund Pike? Amy Adams?

Also: Reese is on Twitter, which I always forget. She’s pretty good at it – she doesn’t engage with crazies and she’s usually just tweeting about work stuff. She tweeted her reactions to her nominations – go here to read.

    From interviews, it is clear that Joaquin really adores Reese and she has him wrapped around her little finger.

  2. Trillian says:

    I will probably never agree with you in fashion things. That dress is horrible. The quilty fabrik is doing her no favors, her waist looks thick and her breasts saggy. Plus it’s too short.

  3. Beth says:

    Not a fan of her lip colour. Too matchy-matchy with her dress.

  4. Kiddo says:

    I feel like that dress isn’t ready.

  5. Gea says:

    Congrats to Resse.

  6. Rhiley says:

    Pretty smug in pink.

  7. Kristen says:

    Joaquin is so hot. Reese’s makeup looks great. They’d be a way better couple than him and the teenager and her and the cheesy Hollywood agent. Let’s make THAT happen.

    • Rhiley says:

      I have to agree with this. I loved his brother, River, and had his pictures all over my bedroom walls when I was in middle and high school like wall paper, but Joaquin never really did much for me. But lately he looks really good. The salt and pepper look suits him, and it seem like he is pretty healthy. Maybe all the yoga and healthy living his catching up with him.

  8. Anastasia says:

    She’s not the only one who does it, but I hate that pose in the header pic–the leg thing they’re doing now. And the jutted out chin.

    Not a fan of the dress, and to be honest, not a fan of her. Used to be, not anymore.

    • AG-UK says:

      I think many do that as crossing your legs makes you appear more narrow/ slimmer? Like hands on hip(s) and turning at an angle with one leg slightly at an angle in front.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      That ‘jutted out chin’ is her face. She has always had a…er…strong jawline.

      I love her makeup here. It’s more dramatic than she usually goes but not over-the-top, so she still lookes like herself.

  9. Barrett says:

    She is a shorter women w a normal healthy figure. I don’t think this dress flatters a shorter women w her shape. She looks squat and wide. She usually knows how to dress for her body type but this is not a win.

  10. Deedee says:

    Ugh, did she sew it herself? It doesn’t fit or flatter her at all. And did Kate Middleton give her eye makeup lessons? Because that’s way too much kohl. It makes her eyes look smaller.

  11. GlimmerBunny says:

    Their chemistry in “Walk the Line” was intense. I love that movie!

  12. Marie-France says:

    Reese looks like a Barbie here. Boring. I don´t particularly like her as an American citizen, but I loved her in Election and Freeway, she really is a versatile actress.

  13. INeedANap says:

    I think these two are super hot together and I wish he had a thing for women who were his equals. Super tightly-wound Type A with a crazy-balls free spirit? Yes please.

  14. Kaye says:

    Is it just me, or does she look slightly annoyed in these pics? In one she looks like she’s almost biting her tongue to avoid making a snarky remark.

  15. Lv says:

    She is adorable. And I think her husband is Hot! She and JP would NOT be a good couple.

  16. Little Darling says:

    I am SO OVER this chick.

  17. Whitney says:

    I think she looks beautiful, the hair and makeup are very pretty

  18. phlyfiremama says:

    I think she looks horrible~too severe, too maron, to much makeup. The dress is awful

    • phlyfiremama says:

      I think she looks horrible~too severe, too much makeup. The dress is awful. Jackie O., she ain’t.

  19. taxi says:

    Good makeup, but the too-short dress is very unflattering. Makes her look dumpy & thick-waisted. Length is bad – cuts her short body in the wrong place.
