style stalker: reese witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon has been one of my favourite actresses since the universally-loved, Legally Blonde (and Sweet Home Alabama… and Walk the Line… I could go on). She’s definitely up there with Julia Roberts and Jen Aniston vying for the title of ‘America’s Sweetheart’. So it’s always a touching love story when they find the right guy (although why couldn’t it have been Jake Gyllenhaal, why??) and settle down in their country ranch with countless animals and mini-me children. Here are the pics that have been doing the rounds since her much-hyped wedding, but I am slightly confused as to why the pink-tinted Marchesa gown in People doesn’t quite match the Hello cover:

Anyway, turning to her fashion choices, I’ve always been a fan of her casual style even more than her red carpet gowns. Unlike other stars (*cough* Britney), she never ventures out unless she’s dressed to impress… whether it’s taking her children to school or attending a business meeting, she’s immaculately put together at all times. Although Reese does experiment with colour, she does tend to stick to basics when it comes to accessories… black bags and shoes are always a staple for this busy mum. All the easier for us to emulate! Here are some elegant every-day looks that Reese does so well:
