Reese Witherspoon's Plunging Strapless Dress Featured This Controversial Design Detail

Love it or hate it.

Reese Witherspoon Peplum Midi Dress

Peplums, the trend everyone loved to hate in the 2010s, is back and better than ever. The controversial silhouette — often paired with chunky necklaces, flats, and skinny jeans — is no longer a relic of the past, thanks to Reese Witherspoon and her latest outfit.

Many celebs have co-signed the resurgence of the peplum trend, like Nicole Kidman arriving at the 94th Academy Awards in a crinkled peplum ​​dusty-blue Armani Privé gown, and Angela Bassett in a velvet Christian Siriano dress that featured pops of peplums. And now, Reese is offering her take on the divisive style. 

On Thursday night, Witherspoon wore a vibrant aqua midi-dress to the premiere of her new Netflix movie, Your Place or Mine, which not only featured a notched neckline and bright pop of color but also a pleated peplum at the waist. Witherspoon finished off her ensemble with black, tie-wrap heels, a statement multi-colored bracelet, and diamond stud earrings. Beauty-wise, her signature blonde hair was parted to the side with textured waves, and she paired shimmery brown eye shadow with a glossy, berry lip.

The actress has been making many public appearances lately, and wearing great outfit after great outfit in the process. Last week, the actress sported an all-red (what she's calling Netflix red) 'fit from Lafayette 148, which included a button-front top and wrap-style skirt, and just the other day, she wore a mini dress that wasn’t your average LBD — a cargo-inspired minidress with a very utilitarian design.

Your Place or Mine arrives on Feb. 10 only on Netflix.
