Reese Witherspoon has revealed her favourite red carpet look

When you’re a Hollywood celebrity that frequents the red carpet, having fashion designers queing up to dress you in their lastest designs is just one of the many perks of the job.

Over the years actress Reese Witherspoon has hit the red carpet in an array of fabulous frocks and has been dressed by everyone from Chanel to Valentino. However according to a recent tweet by Witherspoon there’s one particular dress that she can’t get out of her mind: her 2006 Academy Awards dress.

The beautiful embellished Christian Dior gown which Witherspoon wore when she scooped the Academy Award for best actress in Walk the Line was purchased from a vintage store in Paris according to the tweet,

After a Twitter user asked Witherspoon ‘what’s an outfit you think about a lot?,’ Reese shared a snap of herself gracing herself in the 2006 Oscars red carpet in the breathtaking gown.

“I have fallen in love with so many costumes over the years and I keep one from every movie,” she wrote. “But one special dress stands out! My Oscar dress in 2006: it was a 1957 Christian Dior bought at a vintage store in Paris. So dreamy! Sparkles”

It’s not the first time that Witherspoon has spoken about her love of fashion. Last year when Witherspoon was a guest on The Graham Norton Show she revealled that she kept all of the clothes she wore while playing Elle Woods in Legally Blonde inclyding 77 pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes.

According to Witherspoon, keeping the wardrobe was part of her contract.

‘I kept the whole wardrobe including 77 pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes. I had it written in my contract! I didn’t touch them until the 15th anniversary and then had a lot of fun trying them on with my daughter. Some fit and some didn’t, but it was really cool,’ she said on the show.

Faithfull The Brand dress sells out online – designers delighted

The British royal stepped out in a pretty Faithfull the Brand dress last month.

The design duo behind the brand that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge recently wore are thrilled at the royal endorsement.

Helle Them-Enger and Sarah-Jane Abrahams, who set up Faithfull the Brand in Bali, Indonesia in 2012, were shocked to see Catherine don their floral design to one of her first official engagements since lockdown on 25 June, although they aren’t quite sure how she got her hands on the Marie-Louise midi dress.

“We are incredibly flattered and thrilled to see the beautiful Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, wear our Marie-Louise midi dress in Nefeli floral,” Helle gushed to Vogue Australia. “On Sunday morning just gone, we were thrilled to wake up to messages and calls from friends, family and our Faithfull team with excitement.

“Our Instagram is inundated with tagged imagery of the duchess wearing our dress and we have received so many DM (direct message) and email enquiries of how customers can now get a hold of this piece. There is still uncertainty of how the Duchess got a hold of our dress and it completely took us by surprise, we are beyond happy she is a fan and wears Faithfull so well.”

Unsurprisingly, the dress sold out globally the day after the 38-year-old wore it, though Helle and Sarah-Jane have assured fashion lovers the dress will be restocked.
