She may be getting rave reviews for her portrayal of Judy Garland in Judy, but Renée Zellweger has been dazzling us onscreen for decades. That’s why we decided to bring some of her most iconic characters back to life for our Beverly Hills shoot. She revisited Bridget Jones (wearing a silk Fendi jacket as pajamas) and Nurse Betty (in a white Mugler jacket), while a lacy Dior dress recalled her style in Cold Mountain and a crystal-embroidered ensemble nodded to Chicago. After our final photo, Zellweger changed into off-duty attire and threw on her signature University of Texas at Austin baseball cap. "You can get a lot of miles on a good T, good jeans, and a good boot,” she said.

Having admired Zellweger's low-key real-life style — and, of course, her glamorous red carpet fashion — for years, we were eager to find out what's currently ranking with our December cover star. Here are 11 of her favorite things, from the bag she's been wearing for 16 years to her top travel spots.
