15:20 GMT, 9 March 2012
She's been travelling the world promoting her latest movie This Means War and it appears Reese Witherspoon is now starting to run out of stylish frocks.
The actress turned out for the movie's latest premiere in Rio De Janeiro in Brazil last night.
And she failed to impress as she stepped out in a canary yellow dress with an unflattering shape that added inches to her hips.

Fashion faux pas: Reese Witherspoon turned up to the Brazil premiere of her film This Means War on Thursday in an unflattering yellow dress
While she was attempting to match the flamboyant colours associated with the South American country, Reese committed a fashion faux pas with the frock.
But she appeared to be pleased with her outfit choice as she grinned widely for the crowd and photographers at the event, as she posed happily for the cameras.
The 35-year-old Hollywood star gave herself height in a pair of black strappy heels, which showed her red nails with the peep toe detail.
Unflattering: The actress is currently promoting the rom-com across the world, but failed to impress in her latest get-up
And she accesorised the dress with a matching black patent belt, which she must have hoped would make her waist appear slimmer.
But thanks to the protruding cut, puffing out the sides of the dress, Reese's slim frame looked wider than it actually is.
Clearly in a jovial mood, she added a large metal necklace to the ensemble to make it more interesting.
Not her best! Reese has previously looked sleek and stylish at previous premieres for the same movie, in which she appears alongside Tom Hardy and Chris Pine
Wearing her hair poker straight in a ponytail with her fringe worn down, Reese was happy to stop and sign autographs for the waiting crowd.
Reese has been busy promoting the film, about two CIA agents who are also best friends until they fall in love with the same woman, played by the Legally Blonde star.
And she's knuckling down to boost the movie following lacklustre write ups after its release in America.
Signing autographs: The cut of the dress made Reese's hips look bigger than they actually are
It has been described by some critics as
'perfectly dreadful', insisting it should have been re-shot, while it
received a mauling on
Rotten Tomatoes with a meagre score of 45%.
But while Reese has been working hard screening the picture all over the world, the male leads, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, have been noticeably absent from the premieres.
And the actress is already looking to her next project while she promotes This Means War.
She is set to appear with fellow blondes Cameron Diaz and Gwyneth Paltrow after the trio signed up to Ryan Murphy's latest film, One Hit Wonders.
According to Deadline.com, the actresses will play singers who had one hit song in the 1990s and who, in the present day, don't have careers to speak of.
