As the star of Wild (and the producer of Gone Girl), Witherspoon has been on a recent red-carpet tear, showing up in a series of polished looks in floral prints and bold colors. She went for a clean Zac Posen cocktail dress with side-swept bangs for Wild's premiere and created the illusion of animal skin with a Giambattista Valli sheer gown at the May Fair Hotel Gala.
