With her inspiration Strayed by her side, Witherspoon went glam in a metallic beaded strapless Calvin Klein Collection dress. She accessorized the custom number with more than $1 million in Tiffany & Co. jewelry. 

Now married to talent agent Jim Toth (they share son Tenneesee, 2), Witherspoon dated Gyllenhaal after her split from first husband Ryan Phillippe. The two stars got to know one another on the set of their 2007 drama Rendition. After their split, Gyllenhaal went on to date Taylor Swift in 2010, and model Alyssa Miller from 2013 to 2014.

“He’s very supportive,” Witherspoon told Vogue in November 2008 of Gyllenhaal. “Suffice it to say, I’m very happy in life, and I’m very lucky to have a lot of really supportive people around me who care very much for me, and, you know, that’s all you can hope for in life. I am very blessed in that way.”
