  • From Legally Blond teen to Hollywood style queen, take a look back at Reese Witherspoon's style history here

    A true southern belle, Reese Witherspoon has transformed from teen star to Hollywood A-list – and has the designer wardrobe to match.

    Whether she’s on the school run in LA, or hitting the red carpet during awards season, Reese is always true to her all-American style. From her signature off duty denim, finished off with her faithful Rag & Bone ankle boots, Reese becomes into a red carpet siren by night in Zac Posen, Stella McCartney or Michael Kors.

    Although it’s safe to say that Reese’s style has become more refined over the years, she’s always been a bit of a pro at nailing her looks for premieres and awards ceremonies. She often favours fitted mid-length dresses that hug her hips and draw attention to her trim waist but she has been known to rock a trouser suit on occasion.

    Once you start to flick through our timeline of Reese’s changing look, it’ll become obvious that the petite star just can’t resist a classic LBD. She’s donned one countless times over the years, be it strapless, a design with spaghetti straps or something with an asymmetric cut.

    That said, Reese has never been afraid to experiment with a bold pop of colour. She’s worn a multitude of shades during her time in the spotlight including hot pink, canary yellow and sexy scarlet. She’s also a big fan of  blue.

    When it comes to accessories, Reese likes to make a statement. She often steps out in vibrant stilettos – we adore the emerald green pair she teamed with a sassy below-the-knee dress for a glamorous night out a few years ago. Reese’s glossy blonde hairstyle complemented her look to perfection.
