Magazine Covergirl: VOGUE -- Reese Witherspoon (May 2011)

top by Roland Mouret

     Reese Witherspoon has definitely gone a long way since starring in her breakout role in Legally Blonde. Since she was Elle Woods she has been divorced from actor Ryan Phillippe, won an Oscar for her role as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line, starred in several other box office hits (Sweet Home Alabama, Just Like Heaven, Four Christmases), and now just recently married to CAA agent Jim Toth (in a beautiful pink Monique Lhuillier wedding gown!)  So a lot has definitely changed since her last Vogue interview when she was only 26 years old. Now 35 and playing the lead female star in the new movie Water for Elephants (out in theaters on April 22) opposite of Robert Pattinson, Witherspoon says that she is finally in a really good place in her career, family, and personal life. So it was more fitting that her co-star Tai the elephant accompanied her in this May 2011 Vogue shoot that was styled by Toone Goodman and photographed by Peter Linderbergh. In the cover story, Reese talked about how fabulous it was to be able to wear 1930s cut-on-the-bias evening gowns for her role as Marlena, a star performer in a circus who falls for Pattinson's character, Jacob, and how she even committed to dying her hair platinum blonde just for it. And I must say that this Vogue cover spread is very reminiscent of that very role and look for her character Marlena. The long and ethereal gowns Reese wore on this cover spread, especially the sequined Dior and red Sophia Theallet gowns, are exactly the kind of dresses that are fit for someone who is to be the center of the show. So come check out the rest of the May 2011 Vogue May cover shoot!
