Reese Witherspoon In Cushnie et Ochs – LACMA’s Art and Film Gala

Reese Witherspoon opted for a head-to-toe black ensemble at LACMA’s Art and Film Gala on Saturday night.

The actress always embodies sophistication and elegance – and this was no exception.

Reese opted for a black one-shoulder Cushnie et Ochs Resort 2012 dress.

What stops this frock from being a snooze was the sexy keyhole detail.

She accessorized the look with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels, black satin Jimmy Choo ‘Greta’ heels and a matching Louboutin clutch.

Two diamond bracelets and matching stud earrings added just the right amount of sparkle to the look.

Reese balanced off the subtle sexiness of the dress with a cute ballerina bun and soft, natural makeup.

Her overall look wasn’t wow-worthy, but then again it’s been a very long time since Reese wowed us on the red carpet.

    nice neckline on that dress. I think I prefer the runway version, though. :-)

      Agree. I don’t know why she refuses to wear other silhouettes.

    It actually wowed me because I haven’t seen Reese looking this good in a long time. She is radiant and glowing. The dress may not be the sexiest or edgier or whatever, but hell it compliments her body to the bones. Love it!

    The dress is very sexy but the shoes are a MAJOR letdown.

      i agree. i don’t like them at all.

      The hair for me is a bit too bridesmaidsy….

    I am glad she is trying something different like her hairstyle.

    • Lara November 7, 2011 at 14:20 #

      Ditto. The hair alone is so different for her

    I actually like this – because usually I am bored with her style. But this is a little sassy for her. And she is totally working it.

    Unflattering, too fussy and kinda boring.

    Not liking this, esp. the subpar design and shoe choice.

    • Linda November 7, 2011 at 23:14 #

      Me neither.

    I used to LOVE her on the red carpet, i.e, when her and Ryan separated and she wore that yellow gown, but now nothing excited me about her looks

    • Fashion Critic November 8, 2011 at 06:37 #

      I feel the same. She was great post-break-up, now, blah
