Reese Witherspoon joins daughter at debutante ball

Reese Witherspoon played the proud parent on Saturday (25Nov17) as she introduced her daughter Ava Phillippe to high society at a prestigious debutante ball in Paris, France.

The 18-year-old, whose father is actor Ryan Phillippe, was among the guests of honor at Le Bal des Debutantes, an invitation-only event for aristocratic or celebrity families at the city's Peninsula Hotel.

Ava, who dazzled in a gold, long-sleeved Giambattista Valli haute couture ballgown, was accompanied on the red carpet by her Oscar-winning mother, Reese, while inside the bash, she enjoyed a dance with her regal escort for the night, Maharaja Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur.

Comedian Steve Harvey's daughter Lori was also among the debutantes at the gala, which has previously been attended by the daughters of Bruce Willis, Forest Whitaker, Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood, and Annette Bening and Warren Beatty.
