We’re keeping a very close eye on Reese Witherspoon‘s designer choices leading up to the big awards season. And so far, the girl is positively golden.

Witherspoon didn’t miss a beat at the New York premiere of her new film, "Walk the Line," where she wore a heart-stopping bright red Carolina Herrera frock with a black headband, black pumps and a dramatically oversized black bow belt.

It’s true that on any other actress a bow this big might look like Barnum & Bailey circus clown material. But on Witherspoon, it works. No one knows why.

Some women just have an innate ability to wear weird stuff like this and look like its the most natural thing in the world to have a bow bigger than their head wrapped around their waist.
