So I went to this premiere (for Water for Elephants), and I really wanted to blog about the experience, but first I wanted to find a photo of the back of Reese’s dress. I loved the front, but it was a little too… Disney tween? It looked like something Selena Gomez would wear and you’d say, “Oh, she looks so cute! And age appropriate!” I like Reese Witherspoon a lot, and love her in Walk the Line, but… I think there’s a gap between her public persona and who she really is. Her public persona: America’s Sweetheart, Perfect Southern Girl who never stops smiling. Who she really is: Total Power Bitch who suffers no fools. I wish she would embrace that inner HBIC a little more as she gets older.
But anyway, the back of the dress: it added just enough sexiness and maturity to quiet all my misgivings about the front, and putting her hair in a polished chignon was the perfect choice. But oh man, she has the skinniest legs I’ve ever seen in real life. Maybe embrace some hamburgers as you get older, too, Reese? Remember when you were sort of curvy in Cruel Intentions? That was nice.
