Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Garner, in Valentino, got together for the Children's Defense Fund's annual Beat the Odds Awards in LA on Thursday night. The ladies posed solo on their way into the event, and then met up to chat inside where Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, as well as Conan O'Brien and his wife, Liza, were in attendance.
