Has anyone noticed that Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston promotional schedules seem to run almost parallel to each other?

Whilst Ange was in London promoting “Salt”, Jennifer was in LA promoting her new movie “The Switch”.

Jen took a very rare night off wearing Valentino to wear this Lanvin Spring 2010 nude and black strapless dress.

Unsurprisingly the dress incorporated black.  Ditto for her never changing hairstyle.

I do like this look on Jen, but at the same time I’m slightly bored by it.

On the model the dress speaks volumes, on Jen it’s a quiet whisper.

Jen shortened the dress to show off those pilates toned legs, but in doing so the skirt loses some of it shape and almost becomes just a plain average pencil skirt.

Like Ange yesterday Jen gets an A for effort for attempting to step out of her very comfortable box.

Maybe had she worn one of the Lanvin necklaces a la Jennifer Lopez or Kristin Scott Thomas I could’ve got more excited about this look.

Its not often we see Jennifer carrying a clutch on the red carpet, but on this occasion she carried a Salvatore Ferragamo croc clutch which she teamed with Fred Leighton jewels aand Josie and Lottie strappy sandals.
