First there was Martha. Then Gwyneth. Then Blake. Now another famous Hollywood blonde is getting in on the lifestyle game. Reese Witherspoon has plans to join the genre with an “omnichannel [lifestyle] venture, which will emphasize Witherspoon’s Southern roots and personal style,” WWD reports, adding that she poached a top exec from preppy retailer C. Wonder to launch the brand in 2015.

Unfortunately for us, though, there are no other details, so we had to get imaginative. Below, the style team rounded up their dream features for Reese’s “omnichannel” lifestyle site, from instructional videos to statement tees. Tell us what you’d like to see in the comments!

What to Wear To Your Oscars Party This Weekend

Feb/28/2014 at 07:25 PM ET

We almost can’t believe that the Oscars are on Sunday! We already know what we’re wearing: Jeggings that will accommodate the treats someone’s bound to bring in to the office, and the closest thing to a sweatshirt that’s not a sweatshirt we own, so we can be comfortable for the long haul. If you’ve got a slightly more festive evening planned with pals, you may still be looking for the appropriate outfit — somewhere in between “ripped jeans” and “ballgown.” Below, three options for three types of parties. Let us know your plans in the comments!

Oscars Gown Showdown: Michelle Williams vs. Reese Witherspoon -- Pick Your Favorite!

The Showdown: Michelle Williams in 2006 vs. Reese Witherspoon in 2009
The Editor’s Pick: Michelle Williams
Who Made the Call?: Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor
Why She Chose It:
If this were a contest on who has the best hair, Reese would get my vote — hands down. She literally looks like she walked off the page of a Pantene ad with her crazy-shiny pin-straight strands. And those bangs were enough to make me consider reaching for the scissors. (True story: I remember bringing this photo to the salon and having a lengthy discussion with my hairstylist about getting fringe. And it’s still saved in the “maybe haircuts” folder on my desktop. What? You don’t have one of those folders?) But as you know, this isn’t about the hair. This is about the gowns. And Michelle’s marigold Vera Wang design totally trumps Reese’s Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci creation.

Check out the full Oscars Gown Showdown bracket here!

I know there are probably legions of fervent Reese fans who are ready to picket outside my apartment, but let me explain. This was Michelle’s first Oscars appearance ever, and I love that she totally went for something bold and fresh. With the vibrant color, ruffled neckline and ruching at the waist, it’s no surprise this design launched the nominee to the top of best dressed lists.

Reese’s deep-amethyst gown, on the other hand (and if you’re a fervent Reese supporter, stop reading), falls a bit flat. In fact, I was slightly surprised it was chosen as one of the original gowns in the bracket. It feels like so many strapless gowns I’ve seen before, and even though I think the actress could make a burlap sack look chic, I also have to be honest with my feelings and give the big “W” to Michelle.

Voting is now closed but click here to see who came out on top — and to weigh in on today’s matchup: Hilary Swank vs. Sandra Bullock!

Best Dressed of the Week: All Reese Witherspoon Needs Is an LBD to Take Out the Competition

Feb/15/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

PEOPLE.com readers really can’t resist a good LBD. Proof: This week’s best dressed star. Reese Witherspoon trumped two celebs in floor-skimming gowns for the title, and we’re not sure how we feel about it.

Don’t get us wrong: The actress looks amazing in the long-sleeve Valentino design (worn to the Great American Songbook event in N.Y.C.) featuring an on-trend scalloped neckline. Our favorite part of the look is her textured waves and sexy smoky eye, but in general we felt it was a safe move for the star who earned close to 23,000 “Love It Votes” (a 90 percent approval rating!) to beat out the competition.

Trailing Witherspoon’s stylish footsteps, Elizabeth Hurley nabbed the No. 2 spot in a slinky dove-gray halter with interlocking rings at the neckline at the London Royal Portrait Gallery event. She completed her glam look with a white fur coat and earned an 81 percent “Love It” rating from readers. And rounding out the top 3 was our personal favorite this week, Diane Kruger, who stunned in a white Elie Saab gown with a sheer skirt at the Better Angels premiere in Berlin.

We want to know: Did Reese deserve the top spot? Or were you hoping for a more formal look like Diane’s white gown? Share your thoughts below!
