Reese Witherspoon's Parisian Shopping Spree -- For a Wedding Dress?
JCalderon/Splash News Online
Whether her wedding dress will be classical or avant-garde, Reese Witherspoon got down to some serious trousseau shopping in Paris. After saying ‘au revoir’ to her co-star Paul Rudd at a private dinner Thursday night at restaurant Cherche Midi, the How Do You Know star and a small group of friends hit a number of celebrated shops, visiting at least four famous fashion design houses on Friday, fueling speculation that the gown for her upcoming wedding to Jim Toth will bear a Parisian label. Dressed in a black coat, Reese stepped out smartly in the cold in Louboutin heels, on her way to her 11 a.m. appointment at Louis Vuitton’s corporate offices along the Seine. The well-known luxury conglomerate controls a dozen designer labels including Givenchy and Marc Jacobs — but Reese, who came out after an hour carrying a large brown Louis Vuitton shopping bag was giving no secrets away as she moved her bridal express across Paris. She arrived promptly for a 1 pm appointment at the classic house of Lanvin on the Faubourg du St. Honoré. Could Lanvin’s designer Alber Elbaz be her choice? Or perhaps, her 3:30 pm appointment at Chanel’s flagship Rue Cambon boutique — and the shopping bags that came out with her — suggests she’s leaning towards a creation from the legendary Karl Lagerfeld? Possibly, but then again Reese and her crew had to cross the St. Honoré at least once more, a source tells PEOPLE. And at 5:30 pm, they arrived at the brand new month-old boutique of designer Giambattista Valli. All that’s certain is that Reese will make a très belle bride, whomever she choose for her dress! –Peter Mikelbank
