Reese Witherspoon Sweetens Sprinkles Baking Book Launch Party Outfitted in Draper James
Is there anything sweeter than all-American good girl Reese Witherspoon? Only one thing could possibly come close: the indulgent recipes in Candace Nelson’s The Sprinkles Baking Book ($17; amazon.com).
The charming pair joined forces on Tuesday for the book’s pre-release party in Beverly Hills, where the actress made sure to get some face time with a gorgeous carnation-lined cake.
Witherspoon arrived at the star-studded event in a navy pencil skirt with sparkling embellishments ($275; draperjames.com) and a matching collared top ($195; draperjames.com), both from the actress’s Southern-inspired clothing line, Draper James.
The 40-year-old mother-of-three left her blonde locks down for the event, tousled waves dusting her shoulders. Complementing her relaxed ‘do, Witherspoon kept her makeup fun and minimal, adorning her famous smile with a bright raspberry lip and accessorizing with a simple pair of diamond stud earrings. The Oscar-winner added a couple inches to her 5-foot-1 frame with a pair of stiletto sandals that showed off her deep crimson pedicure.
Rumor has it, Reese Witherspoon contributed her own family recipe to the baking book…
The Sprinkles Baking Book is available for pre-order now.
Have a look at the first still from Reese’s upcoming HBO TV series Big Little Lies:
Subversive, darkly comedic drama Big Little Lies tells the tale of three mothers of first graders whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder.
Irish comedian Sharon Horgan writing film for Reese Witherspoon
Irish comedy star Sharon Horgan has revealed she is penning a new movie for Oscar-winning actress/producer Reese Witherspoon.
The Meath writer with the Midas touch has been earning critical acclaim for her new TV series, Divorce , starring Sarah Jessica Parker.
Horgan has conquered the small screen a string of TV hits such as Pulling and Catastrophe but now she reveals she has her sights set on Hollywood.
She is following in the footsteps of best-selling author Cecilia Ahern, who has seen three of her novels get the Tinseltown treatment. PS I Love You became a huge success more than a decade ago, while her star-studded rom-com Love Rosie was also filmed in the capital.
Sharon Horgan tells next month’s Red magazine she has teamed up with the Walk the Line star who has recently produced hits like Gone Girl and Wild.
“Reese set up her own production company specifically to create better roles for women because she was fed up with getting sent scripts where she was some funny guy’s girlfriend. She saw Pulling and that’s why we hooked up,” she said.
The American actress took to Twitter a few months ago to tell of her love for Horgan’s TV sitcom, Catastrophe , which revolved around her surprise pregnancy in the show.
“New obsession, #Catastrophe on @AmazonVideo — @SharonHorgan & @robdelaney made me laugh so loud on a plane, I was told to be quiet…twice”, tweeted Reese Witherspoon.
The Irish writer said she was delighted with the glowing endorsement from the comedy actress.
“She was so great about Catastrophe. She definitely piled a few extra thousand viewers by Instagramming about it.” The TV funnywoman teamed up with Rob Delaney to make the single camera romantic comedy about an Irish woman and an American man who end up in a relationship in London.
The 46-year-old actress, who has two daughters, Sadhbh, 12, and Amer, 8, has said her own recollections of her pregnancies were part of the inspiration for the character.
The in-demand star — sister of ex-Irish rugby player Shane Horgan — said she was bowled over when Parker approached her to write a show for her return to the small screen after the Sex And The City series.
She said: “We met for lunch in Manhattan. I thought I can’t meet Sarah Jessica Parker without making the effort. I was dolled up to the nines and she was in her workout clothes.
“She said she was interested in a project about a damaged relationship. I left in a daze thinking ‘Shit, I think I’m being asked to write a show for Sarah Jessica Parker’.”
Sex And The City was escapist and aspirational, said the Irish writer. “This is warts and all. It’s a very real look at a woman in the throes of a pretty awful divorce. Although I don’t think there are any nice divorces.”
