Actress Reese Witherspoon says her “Legally Blonde” character Elle Woods has been ousted as the most stylish woman to come to the nation’s capital by first lady Michelle Obama.
Speaking Wednesday at a ceremony where Mrs. Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton presented the annual International Women of Courage awards, Witherspoon jokingly complained that Woods, the bubbly blonde from Los Angeles who discovers her inner strength at Harvard Law School and then takes on Washington politics, no longer held that title.
“As an actress, I have always sought out roles that portrayed women as strong and powerful, such as Elle Woods, who was in the ‘Legally Blonde’ movies,” she said to laughter from the audience in an ornate State Department reception room.
Woods, she said, “happened to be the biggest fashionista who ever came to Washington until Michelle Obama. Thanks a lot.”
Clinton then introduced Mrs. Obama as “stylish,” and the first lady returned the compliment to the entire crowd, saying: “You all look fabulous.”
Witherspoon was at the ceremony as a global ambassador for the Avon Foundation, which supports breast cancer research, anti-domestic violence programs and women’s empowerment projects. On Wednesday the group announced a $500,000 contribution to the State Department’s Fund for Global Women’s Leadership.

A couple of nights ago Reese attended the launch of Vera Wang’s new Los Angeles Boutique, and she looked stunning in a little purple dress (presumably by Vera Wang herself?) and poker straight blonde hair! Lisa and I both love this look on her. Reese was pictured alongside her friend and fellow Oscar winner Renee Zellweger.
I’ve added 120+ gorgeous HQs to our Gallery – enjoy!

Reese made another public appearance this month! She was spotted at the 13th Annual Unforgettable Evening which is a benefit event for the Womens Cancer Research Fund. She looked her usual gorgeous self in a little black lacy dress and black peeptoes. I’ve added lots of photos to our gallery so enjoy!
edit: I have learned that the beautiful dress she is wearing was designed by Jason Wu.

Very last minute as the telethon is airing now (and I’ve seen Reese twice already) but Reese is answering phones at tonight’s Hope for Haiti charity telethon. You can watch the special right now on CNN, Mtv, and many other networks so check your local listings. We will post any photos and/or screencaptures as soon as they become available.
As reported, Reese attended the Golden Globes last night, and she looked stunning in a navy blue dress and sleek blonde hair! It appears that she did not walk the red carpet, but she presented the award for Best Picture – Musical or Comedy, which went to The Hangover.
Unfortunately, I’ve only come across a couple of pictures of Reese at the awards! These 2 photos have been added to the Gallery, and we’ll be keeping an eye out for more. I’ll also be adding HD screencaps of Reese presenting tomorrow!

Over the past few months Reese has made several public appearances including the launch of her In Bloom fragrance for Avon and a keynote speech at the House of Commons about domestic violence.

Reese Witherspoon has visited the House of Commons to raise awareness of domestic violence as part of joint campaign by Avon and the charity Refuge.
The actress, who is the global ambassador for the cosmetics company, spoke on behalf of the crusade, calling for more government funding for victim support services in the UK.
”There remains what can seem like an impenetrable wall of silence around violence and we must all play a role in breaking this silence,” she said.
A YouGov poll commissioned by Avon found that 92 per cent of people think they do not know anyone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence, when in fact one in four women suffer at the hands of a partner in their lifetime.
Ms Witherspoon said the problem was “pandemic” around the world and added that she was motivated to support the campaign by a friend who had gone through such an experience as a young woman.
In March, she launched a worldwide campaign on behalf of the cosmetics company aimed at ending violence against women.
