"I was super into my shoes," Witherspoon said when confronted with a photo of herself at the Fear premiere in 1996. "Combat boots was like my thing."

Witherspoon has come a long way since then, as she went with a classic Dior number for The Good Lie premiere.

Witherspoon stars alongside Sudanese actors Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal and Nyakuoth Weil in The Good Lie, which tells the story of "The Lost Boys" -- children that were orphaned by the civil war in Sudan that began in 1983, forcing these young victims to travel as many as one thousand miles on foot in search of safety. Fifteen years later a humanitarian effort brought 3,600 of these lost children to America.

The Good Lie opens October 3.
