Reese Witherspoon BAFTAs 2015

The Grammys Awards wasn’t the only big awards show this weekend. The 2015 BAFTAs (aka British Academy of Film and Television Arts) took place in London. If seeing the always flawless Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne on the red carpet weren’t enough to make you watch, there were also lots of gorgeous dresses. Reese Witherspoon looked absolutely flawless in a fitted vivid purple dress. Just seeing her outfit was enough of a reason to tune in.

Reese wore a royal purple Stella McCartney gown which fit her like a glove. It was very simple, but stunning. This proves you don’t need fifty feet of tulle, thigh-high lace-up shoes, or a wacky hairstyle to ensure all eyes are on you. You just need a very good tailor. The gown’s low neckline and vivid color were all that Reese needed to make a statement.

I love the way Reese also chose to keep her accessories simple. She added a single bracelet and rings. Similarly, she didn’t overdo it with her hair and makeup. Her tousled blonde hair and peachy skin make her outfit look effortless. She could be wearing three pairs of Spanx and a roll of body tape, and the casual styling makes it seem like she just found this dress in her closet, put it on, added a bit of lip gloss and went on the red carpet, cold British winter weather be damned. Reese better have an amazing dress picked out for the Oscars because it is going to be difficult to top this one.
