When there's an Oscar up for grabs, it makes sense to take a risk on the red carpet.
Proof: Reese Witherspoon—who's been gathering early Oscar buzz for her performance in "Wild,"—when she attended the London premiere of the film on Monday in a head-turning dress.
The Vogue cover girl sported a daring Stella McCartney gown that was really busy thanks to two animal prints on the bodice, lace details and a sheer cut-out panel. The dress was a sensory overload but it worked.
To complement the gown, the 38-year-old sported ruby red lips, dramatic smoky eyes and styled her blond hair into a simple straight 'do.
Earlier that day, the mom-of-three wore a cute Giambattista Valli LBD with sheer panels, which she paired with black pumps and an updo.
