Reese Witherspoon is an acclaimed actress, entrepreneur, and Southern belle. In addition to her well-loved acting career, with smash-hit classics like Sweet Home Alabama, Legally Blonde, and Walk The Line, Reese started a Southern-inspired clothing line in Nashville, Tennessee named after her grandparents – Draper James. Now, the shop has locations in Tennessee, Texas, and Kentucky, and the charm of the shop is only rivaled by the cheery prints, playful slogans, and timeless dresses. Reese Witherspoon is the star of our September 2017 cover wearing a Draper James magnolia-print dress, created exclusively for Southern Living. This rich blue dress uses the iconic magnolia flower – a staple of Southern gardens everywhere – and has a playful sleeve. It's perfect for summer weddings, Saturday mornings at the football game, and even spring showers. We joined this beloved belle on her photoshoot for a little behind-the-scenes look at the new dress, her classic Southern style, and her favorite books.
