This New Draper James and Lands’ End Swim Collab Will Have You Dreaming of Sunnier Days
While you might not exactly have swimsuits on the brain right now, a refreshing new swim collaboration between Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James and Lands’ End has us fantasizing about a post-social distancing world full of poolside piña coladas and afternoons in the sand.
The size-inclusive collection features embroidered eyelet one-pieces with ruffled necklines replete with Southern charm (Reese did have a hand in them, after all), high-waisted bikinis covered in sweet daisies, gingham galore, and breezy coverups. Plus, a percentage of proceeds will be donated to Girls Inc, an organization that, like Lands’ End and Draper James, believes in empowering future generations of women to be body positive and bold.
In an exclusive interview with OprahMag.com, Reese Witherspoon explains to us why this message is so vital.
“Body positivity stems from inclusivity, which is why it was so important for us to offer a range of sizes, from XS-3X, in the Draper James x Lands’ End collection. This is something that is extremely close to my heart, and something I’m extremely proud that we have accomplished.”
When asked how she, herself, models that confidence for her 20-year-old daughter, Ava (who is practically her mini-me) and fans, she says, “In my daily life, I try to do something every day that helps me appreciate the function of my body—whether that’s yoga or running outside—rather than solely its appearance. It’s a mindset I strive to keep and I encourage my daughter, and all young women, to work toward.”Continue reading this entry »
Reese appeared on Miley Cyrus’s Instagram Live series ‘Bright Minds’ yesterday – ‘Bright Minds’ is about “Connecting w/ special guests discussing how to stay LIT in dark times!”. They talked about how they’re managing with being quarantined, ‘must watch’ movies, how Reese picks her roles, how she’s managing anxiety at the moment, supporting small, female-led businesses, and how Madeline’s house in Big Little Lies was the same house used for Miley’s show Hannah Montana!
HD screencaptures from the 3rd episode of Little Fires Everywhere – ‘Seventy Cents’ – have been added to our Gallery today. This episode had a nice combination of both fiery and more tender Elena moments, and opened up a lot more questions about the central mystery(s) of the show.

Today we’ve added HD screencaptures from the 2nd episode of Little Fires Everywhere – ‘Seeds And All’. I really enjoyed this episode – the book club scene was very funny, and then the following scene was so moving and gave us a glimpse into a different side of Elena. Reese was just fantastic!
The 4th episode is released on Hulu tomorrow, and we’ll continue with HD screencaptures this week.

Reese and Kerry Washington can be seen on the cover of the latest issue of Emmy magazine, promoting Little Fires Everywhere. The magazine has a gorgeous new photoshoot, and in the interview Reese, Kerry, their director and producing partners, and author Celeste Ng talk about how the book was developed into a show and how they dealt with some of the cultural issues within it. The magazine will be available on US news-stands on March 24th.

For Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington and their production partners, Little Fires Everywhere was — first and last — a passion project, sparking ardent confessions up and down the call sheet.
Kerry Washington was getting in touch with her inner pyromaniac last fall, and it was… fun.
Washington was on the set of Little Fires Everywhere, the new Hulu limited series in which she stars with Reese Witherspoon, and her character, an artist named Mia Warren, wielding dual lighters, was creating new art from the ruin of past art — setting fire to a big, ripped-up photo of Witherspoon’s character, a tightly wound mom named Elena Richardson.
“It was a cool moment,” Washington says. “Everybody wanted to watch the shooting of this scene. But we could only have a few people there, for safety reasons, and most of those people were firemen, who were giving us lectures about the fastest way off the lot.”Continue reading this entry »
Reese celebrates her birthday today – March 22nd – and we’d like to wish her a very Happy Birthday! We hope she gets to spend a special day with her loved ones and we wish her lots of happiness in the year ahead. Reese continues to inspire us and we’re so proud of everything that she’s doing in her industry!
Little Fires Everywhere premiered on Hulu on Wednesday, and they treated us to the first 3 episodes! Reese was typically fabulous in her role of Elena Richardson – she feels like a cross between Big Little Lies‘ Madeline and Bree from Desperate Housewives! The show touched on a number of issues and I liked how it placed equal focus on both the parents and the children’s lives. I’m looking forward to seeing more of the show! Today I’ve added HD screencaptures from the first episode – ‘The Spark’:
