Reese Witherspoon Brightens Up The Holidays In Cute Pink Dress

While us mere mortals are schlepping around in drab coats and basically anything that will keep us warm, Reese Witherspoon is a beacon of light in the darkness that is winter.

On Wednesday, the 38-year-old actress attended the premiere of "Inherent Vice" wearing a bright pink shift dress that warmed our cold bodies.

"The Good Lie " actress—who recently shared a steamy kiss with Benedict Cumberbatch for The New York Times magazine—styled her vibrant dress with nude pumps, bubble-gum pink lips, smoky eyes and a retro ponytail. Reese has been on the red carpet circuit a lot the past few months, largely due to promotion for "Wild," for which she was just nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress, and for which she will most likely be nominated for an Oscar.

Red carpet standouts include a stunning white Zac Posen dress, a glamourous floral Prabal Gurung and a sexy black Stella McCartney gown with waist cutouts.

We can't wait to see what she will wear at the Golden Globes!
