Jennifer Garner was one of the main stars at the “Valentine’s Day” LA Premiere last night.

I was surprised to see her wearing such a sexy Valentino Pre-Fall 2010 strapless dress as I was expecting a much safer option.

The dress had nude illusion cut-outs, leather and lace pieces wrapping around the dress, plus a beaded hemline.

Poker straight or a tightly pulled back ponytail would have added more sex appeal to the look, but I don’t really believe that was the look Jennifer was going for.

This dress was just enough to ensure she didn’t fade into the background.

The actress only accessorized with a ring and black Brian Atwood “Maniac” pumps.
