Truth be told, yellow isn’t the easiest color to pull off. But for Reese Witherspoon, wearing the bright sunny hue has become second nature.

The Golden Globes presenter stepped out on the red carpet tonight wearing what she called a true Witherspoon-appropriate “classic Hollywood look” on Instagram – a strapless yellow Versace gown with a thigh-high slit up the front, accessorized with a gold floral jeweled choker necklace and soft, simple makeup by Molly R. Stern.

This look could quite possibly be the 40-year-old star’s nod to the 10 year anniversary of her Golden Globes cocktail dress that’s been regarded as one of the best Globes looks of 2007.

Two days before the show, Witherspoon even Instagrammed a #FBF shot of her 2007 look with the caption, “#FBF to the 2007 #GoldenGlobes in @ninaricci by @olivertheyskens ✨ Good luck to all of this year’s nominees!” Perhaps she was giving us a subtle hint to what this year’s look would be inspired by?
