Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, who co-starred as sisters on the popular ‘90s TV sitcom Friends, will be reunited for a new series, called The Morning Show.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Aniston and Witherspoon, who are both also serving as executive producers, are earning $1.25 million per episode of The Morning Show. Apple has committed to a full two-season order of 20 total episodes, which reportedly cost $300 million to produce!

On Monday, the A-list duo, together with Apple Inc., celebrated the premiere of their Apple TV+ drama web series held at the Lincoln Center in New York City.

Inspired by Brian Stelter’s book, Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV (available at Amazon), the upcoming original series will give us a glimpse into the personal and professional lives of morning news anchors.

The first three episodes of the series will be available to stream on Apple TV+ on November 1. Be warned, however, according to the early reviews listed by USA Today, the newsroom drama is ‘brutally dull’ and a ‘snore.’

Aside from the lead stars, plenty of other noteworthy celebrities, as well as some rising talents, were also in attendance, and they filled the black carpet with gorgeous looks.

1. Jennifer Aniston Keeps It Classy in Black Heels

Jennifer Aniston, who is particularly fond of black dresses, never fails to impress with her simple yet chic outfit choices. Her recent look was no exception as she opted for a floor-length black sheath gown by James Galanos.

The elegant sleeveless dress features a high neck with draping detail and a cinched-in waist that perfectly highlighted her amazing figure.

She wore her shoulder-length blonde tresses down in loose waves and parted in the middle, while her face was beautifully made-up with pink lipstick, blush, and mascara.

The 50-year-old actress kept the look classy with a pair of gold leaf dangling earrings and black open-toe sandals.

2. Reese Witherspoon Shines in Christian Louboutin Pumps

Reese Witherspoon also opted for a black dress, but hers was sparkling with sequin embellishments and was cut just right below the knee.

The mid-length strapless number by Hedi Slimane for Celine features a glittery gold band along the top and a flattering bodycon silhouette that accentuated her curves.

“The world didn’t tell us that we were supposed to be leaders, we never thought those opportunities would come and now here we are,” Witherspoon explained of the show’s central theme in an interview with Good Morning America.

“I think a lot of women are stepping up or being asked to step up and I think it’s fantastic.”

“Jen and I talk about it, even seven years ago the idea of us being producers was thought of as cute — but this has been an amazing experience because we go into big rooms of lots of creative executives and they actually listen to what we have to say,” she added.

The 43-year-old actress looked gorgeous with a slicked blunt bob, dark smoky eye-makeup, nude blush, and pink lip shade, thanks to her hairstylist Lona Vigi and makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan.

Reese’s look was masterminded by her stylist Petra Flannery. She teamed the dazzling frock with statement earrings by Taffin Jewelry and chose the classic favorite Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Follies’ pointed toe pumps for her feet.

5. Ashley Graham Is Positively Glowing Raye Sandals

Also opting for a black number was the very pregnant TV presenter Ashley Graham, who was seen holding onto her baby bump while posing on the black carpet.

The 32-year-old plus-size model looked glamorous in a TSE dress that features a modest turtleneck and long sleeves.

For her feet, Ashley slipped into a pair of Raye ‘Havoc’ Sandals. These are definitely not the safest sandals, especially for a first-time expecting mom like her, but she seemed comfortable in them.

They feature thin suede straps with wraparound ankle tie closure and about 4-inch wide heels.

South African actress Jodi Balfour, who is best known for her role as Gladys Witham in the Canadian television drama series Bomb Girls, was also hard to ignore in an outfit from Christopher Kane’s Pre-Fall 2019 collection.

There’s obviously a lot going on in this outfit. The bodysuit top was too revealing as it’s made from see-through lace and features a décolletage-baring low-cut neckline with pearl fringe trims.

The 32-year-old actress, who has an estimated net worth of around $1 million, teamed the sexy top with a playful dotted pink satin midi skirt, also from the same collection.

Jodi kept the rest of her look modest, with her hair styled into a center-parted bun. It was also a wise decision to skip the jewelry and opt for a dainty pair of black sandals to let her outfit take center stage.
