2011 MTV Movie Awards: Reese Witherspoon steps out of her comfort zone in Zac Posen
In most situations, Reese Witherspoon is what I would call “pleasantly predictable” on the red carpet. She always looks glamourous and lovely, but her stable of demurely embellished neutral cocktail dresses must be enormous, because that’s almost all she wears. With that in mind, seeing her in body-conscious leopard print at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards was like a breath of fresh air.
I’ve been critical of Zac Posen in the past, but this dress hugs Reese in all the right spots without looking inappropriate for a married woman with children and a somewhat conservative public persona. I appreciate that she stepped out of her normal routine for an event aimed at a younger crowd, but keeping the dress neutral instead of going for a more traditional leopard print (or a bright one, perish the thought!) ensures that the look stays relevant to her personal style. Excellent job, Reese.
