Throwback Thursday with Reese Witherspoon today. The occasion? The 26th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on January 19, 2020 in Los Angeles, California.
For the event, Witherspoon wore a one-shoulder custom dark blue Celine figure hugging dress with a thigh high slit, embellished throughout, reminiscent of designs from the 2019-2020 Ready-to-Wear collections.
Reese elevated her look with Harry Winston jewelry: emerald-cut diamond ear studs, a diamond links bracelet, a Crossover diamond ring, a River diamond ring and a Tyler Ellis black satin Aimee clutch (in the exact model pictured below, not the same color). Of course she then paired everything with Celine open-toe black and silver pumps.
Lona Vigi told Virtue Labs’ Blog about the inspiration for the hairstyling: “Reese‘s dress has this very old Hollywood, almost Art Deco sense to it, with beautiful beading and lots of weight to the dress itself. Initially I was thinking to add more texture to the hair, but sometimes when the dress takes on a vibe from a different and distinct decade, it’s better to not lean into that era because it can come across as costume-y. So, then we thought, well, what’s the opposite of that? To me, that was straight hair that has polish and movement. We went with a side part to give it more drama and red-carpet appeal.”
Would you like to read about a tutorial on how to achieve her sleek do? Say no more (information provided by Olivia Garden International and Virtue Labs–edited for clarity).
Step 1: To start, wash and clean hair with Virtue Full Shampoo and Virtue Full Conditioner, applying conditioner only to lengths and ends. Once hair is clean and damp, work in Virtue Volumizing Mousse from roots to ends. It instantly thickens hair, adds body, bounce, and flexible hold for a long-lasting style.
Step 2: Blow dry about 80% of the way with the Olivia Garden Hair Dryer + Olivia Garden Private Collection large round brush to add a gentle flip.
Step 3: Apply the Virtue Labs Healing Oil to the ends to create additional shine.
Step 4: Create a dramatic side part and divide hair into sections before straightening with the Olivia Garden flat iron.
Step 5: To finish off the look, spritz a generous amount of the Virtue Labs Finale Shaping Spray to give the look touchable hold and shine, while taming any unwanted frizz.
Witherspoon‘s nails were painted in a nude hue by manicurist Thuy Nguyen.
