I’d like to continue my “Style Icons” series by featuring Reese Witherspoon. While I know that most of us consider people like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelley, Ava Gardner, and Katherine Hepburn to be great style icons, my series will focus on modern style icons.
I think Reese is great because she always exudes class and grace. She doesn’t seem affected by the craziness of Hollywood and knows what works for her. Even after unveiling her fabulous post-divorce look in 2007, she proved that in order to look our best, we need to know what works for us. Sure, some people may think she’s boring because her clothes may not be as adventurous or avant-garde as those of other celebs, but in my opinion, her style is classic, elegant, and effortless. I strongly identify with her style and would probably wear 99% of her closet’s contents if she would let me. I just love a girl who wears as much black as I do!
Some of my favorite evening looks:
