French Connection bags Reese Witherspoon cover shot

First published: 06-01-2010

People could be more persuaded to invest in a French Connection watch after one of Hollywood's biggest stars wore an ensemble from the fashion house on a leading British magazine cover.

Reese Witherspoon, the 33-year-old actress best-known for her role in Legally Blonde, was spotted on the cover of InStyle UK in a black figure-hugging elastane and cotton mix dress which proved that she does her best to keep in shape.

And in the interview, it was proved that she was quite the fashionista, admitting to entering into a strange trade agreement with several of her friends to ensure that her outfits always stay fresh.

"There are three of us who wear pretty much the same size, so we'll get together on a Friday night and I'll bring clothes I want to trade and they'll bring theirs.

"We swap shoes and handbags a lot. I wore my girlfriend's dress to a wedding recently. It's fun."

Reese recently split with celebrity boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal, though reports suggest that he is keen on winning her back.
