Looks like pretty Ava Phillippe has got the stylish gene straight from her actress mum Reese Witherspoon. The glamorous pair attended the season 2 premiere of Big Little Lies in New York on Wednesday evening and looked quite the fashionable duo as they posed for photographers on the red carpet. Mum Reese, who stars in the HBO hit series as Madeleine Mackenzie, wore a chic gold and black strapless dress by the designer Ellie Saab for the event and paired the outfit with some black heels by Ferragamo. She accessorised with a beautiful necklace by De Beers and earrings by Taffin Jewellery.
