    That dress is quintessential ‘basic’ Southern-girl “style.” Gag.

    • blackcat says:

      I’m southern and that dress isn’t representative of southern girl style. That Vogue pattern tablecloth dress is frumpy dumpy and ugly.

      I love me some gingham but this uhh, nope.

      • nemera34 says:

        Thank you.. blackcat

        that is not what “Southern Girls” are wearing. I’m sick of these stereotypes of Southern women. We aren’t grabbing table cloths off tables and making dresses out of them

      • minx says:

        Yeah, the dress is wearing her.

      • CTgirl says:

        Amen, blackcat. I’m betting that she’s pregnant. Her body looks tummy heavy here.

      • teatimeiscoming says:

        It is where I am in the South…

      • Jess says:

        I agree with you guys, I’m in the Deep South and I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s frustrating to hear silly stereotypes when you live here, but sometimes comical. I waited tables while in college and met a lot of travelers, I was shocked by how often people said things like, “I can’t believe Alabama has actual paved roads and most people don’t live in double wides, plus you have teeth”, I mean what in the actual hell? Lol, and they call us ignorant?! One guy moved here from Chicago to play on our local baseball team and he was ranting about how dumb we were to believe we would meet our soulmates here and we need to explore the world….guess who cried like a baby at his wedding to a southern girl and still lives here 15 years later?😄😄

        Anyhow, rant over. Reece is trying to capitalize on those southern stereotypes when in reality she lost touch with this place years ago!

        Sad story about Venus Williams, I’m sure she feels terrible and will end up paying loads of money to that family.

      • Alix says:

        I think it’s the scale of the gingham that doesn’t work here…

    • mia girl says:

      I think I hate the shoes more…

      • Silent Star says:

        I think the fabric could work, but the dress needs more fitting in the waist or a wider belt, and it needs daintier sleeves, like slightly poofy cap sleeves. The style she’s wearing is too matronly.

    • Jerusha says:

      No, it’s not. Ridiculous, easy, stereotype comment.

    • LMAO says:

      Typical cultural bashing without shame. Nor validity.

    • It'sJustBlanche says:

      I live north of Atlanta (the hick burbs) and you wouldn’t see that here or inside the perimeter. Women do like a very feminine look here though.

      Well except for the ones who dress like Real Housewives rejects.

      • Lyssa says:

        @It’sJustBlanche I grew up in the hick part of Northern Florida. I don’t recall ever seeing a gingham dress.

  2. JEM says:

    I just can’t with Reese Witherspoon anymore. She drives me INSANE.

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      I cosign. She looks as if she just called the paps, then got on the phone and is talking to ahem, no one. Frumpy dress, frump shoes. Ugh.

  3. burnsie says:

    That Hannibal Buress story in the featured links is hilarious

    • mia girl says:

      Agree! Love him.

      The Republican lawmaker’s porcupine story is funny too. Not the stupid analogy, but I love that the AP fact checked his claims on porcupine sex. Hilarious.

  4. minx says:

    That dress is matronly and ill-fitting, and the shoes do Reese’s legs no favors. She’s not my favorite person but she’s a cutie and she looks like a dumpy housewife here.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think the length isn’t a good match for her frame. A little shorter would be better.

  5. YepIsaidit says:

    Some people on some other site were trying to say she looked pregnant? I don’t see it.

    • The Daily Mail had some photos from a swimsuit photo shoot and there was an angle where her tummy had what looked to be a baby bulge.

      She has a cute figure, so why has she been wearing these frumpy housedress type of clothes lately unless she’s hiding a bump?

      • kay says:

        I think she’s just middle-aged and not as slim as she used to be. It happens to all of us.

      • Mandymc says:

        She could be pregnant but I think she has the same unfortunate body type as me and gains weight in her midsection first.

      • Fiorucci says:

        She’s always been thick in the middle since her first kids actually. Maybe on and off and maybe she wears a corset kind of thing under fancy gowns but it’s not new. I remember being surprised that jake g (being perfect and gorgeous) wanted to date not only a mom but a mom with some left over baby weight, it made me wonder about the gay rumours. RW has nice style about 10 % of the time. Usually she looks like a less fashionable j crew catalogue

      • minx says:

        Yeah, as everyone has said, I think her midsection is where her weight goes, after having 3 kids. I can certainly relate.

      • hanna77 says:

        “I remember being surprised that jake g (being perfect and gorgeous) wanted to date not only a mom but a mom with some left over baby weight, it made me wonder about the gay rumours.”

        Um please tell me you were a dumb child when you thought that and that you are no longer the dumb and understand why thinking that was dumb as hell.

    • Jker says:

      Fiorucci – I had the same thought re: Jake G.

    • lucy2 says:

      Shockingly a 40 year old woman who has had 3 children does not have a perfectly flat stomach 24/7.

  6. themummy says:

    Very ill-fitting in the bust. Also: terrible, awful shoes.

  7. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Horrible dress, even worse shoes- paired…hideous.

  8. Skylark says:

    It looks like a really cheap poundshop version of the sturdy but stylish pinafore dresses my (farmer) grandmother wore to protect her clothes while feeding her pigs and milking her cows

  9. Amy Pannell says:

    She is so annoying. I cannot stand her!!! That is totally a freaking picnic blanket of dress

  10. Gene123 says:

    Beyonce and jay z named their twins Rumi and Sir

  11. seesittellsit says:

    I actually have a weakness for gingham, but I know enough not to wear it – instead I buy gingham dresses for friends who give birth to daughters. RW isn’t aging well – and that dress does her no favors.

  12. Triedmetday says:

    Bet there’s no one on THE other end of the phone!! I declare sugah just doin my litl pap stroll!!

  13. Lemon says:

    She goes on a daily stroll that is obviously planned and coordinated to the extreme. She is so annoying.

  14. Annetommy says:

    She looks comfortable. Good for her.

  15. homeslice says:

    Her street style pap walks are awful. Recent pics of her in a bathing suit definitely look like she’s expecting…but then again, I often think she carries a lot of weight in her midsection and photoshops the crap out of her pics on instagram.

  16. Giulia says:

    A buffalo check dress would make anyone look matronly.

  17. poorlittlerichgirl says:

    I saw a photo of her a few days ago (very recent photo) and she looks very pregnant. Like, much more than any bloat that we’ve seen on Jen Aniston. Reese looked like real deal pregnant to me and I rarely ever say that about any woman.
