Jennifer Garner In YSL – BAFTA Brits To Watch Event

Best Dressed Award
With my favourite gals, (Jennifer Lopez & Blake Lively), plus my favourite designer (Elie Saab) on this BAFTA Brits To Watch Event red carpet, I’m sure you are shocked that I picked Jennifer Garner as my best dressed.

I was totally mesmerized by her navy blue YSL gown.

The beautiful satin draped gown is rich both in colour and its simplicity.

Jennifer may not have been going for the wow factor on this occasion, but she wowed me.

Jen opted for simple loose waves and a soft pink lipshade, with gold David Webb earrings and a gold box clutch completed her look.

Who Was Your Best Dressed At The BAFTA Brits To Watch Event?

  • Luiza

    She is looking pretty indeed.. but somehow the overall look ages her a bit.. she could have put a color on her lips or maybe a more playful clutch. Something is missing imo.

  • K

    Jennifer looked gorgeous at the event. I love that she didn’t look like she was trying too hard; she looked as if she just threw on a gorgeous gown last minute and dropped by the event to meet Kate and William like an old friend. No big deal.

  • Laura’s Opinion

    it was YSL. Nice

  • jones19

    Wow simple but stunning, great look.

  • Fraser

    Thank you, FC!!

    I am sure – like many – I would have passed this look by but you are quite right this is stunning, Or rather Jennifer + dress is stunning.

  • Regina

    She look amazing….
    If she win BDOTW, i ll vote for her in BDOTY cause its so simple but i cant take my eyes of her.. Goddess

  • lipsticklover

    I agree with you that Jen looks stunning.
    In my opinion this is one of the best dressed events in ages!
    Also loved gugu, blake and zooey.
    Thank you for the amazing coverage 🙂

  • Katharine

    This is one of the best dresses of the year, definitely week, so far. It’s good to see Jennifer Garner embodying grace and elegance – I think this is her best look on the red carpet since the 2004 Oscars.

  • AnnRios


    while going through the event photos, it was the dress that made look twice, she looks perfect…really the best dressed of the week

  • Ayesha

    WOW!!the hair make up,jewellery and of course the gown,THAT COLOR,structure,everything is soo soo perfect!!!

  • Gabby

    Stunning gown!! She looks amazing!

  • Catherine

    Stunning! I was browsing through photos from the event and she stood out for me. Looking gorgeous 🙂 BDOTW candidate I think!

  • Nina

    Jennifer Garner looks stunning in this blue Eli Saab gown. Thanx FC.

  • Nikki

    I love the color of the gown.

    I don’t like how the it drapes on her hips though. It doesn’t fit her well…there’s a weird bump (of fabric) on the bodice. Her hair is unruly and the lighter shade on her bangs is tacky.

    Lovely earrings and her makeup is flawless.

  • Hannah

    I loved this until I saw it on and saw the shoes. Delicte gold sandals would have been much preffered, but I guess the height was necessary to pull off this divine gown. I am just so desperate to find out who it is by, there are so many similar, but no the same styles by so many different deisgners, SO frustrating!

  • Hermione Weasley

    I agree with you, she was my favorite as well. So simple, yet stunning. It’s very fresh and chic!

  • Emi

    I think this is one of her best red carpets, ever. She looks stunning. The dress is gorgeous, the color, the drapery, everything is perfect. She looks beautiful, perfect make up, simple hair, right accessories. BDOTW, of course!

  • anna

    this navy blue is beautiful.
    the color looks great against her skin…
    but i do’nt like the dress at all. not best dressed IMO.
    its too loosy.

  • Laura’s Opinion

    Any updates on who the designer is of this dress?

  • Elaine2

    My favorite part of her look is her makeup. The color of the dress is great too – I’m surprised the Duchess didn’t go for that color since it seems to have dominated her wardrobe on her trip. LOL.

    Alas though, I am not fond of Jen’s hairstyle or the style of this dress. I don’t think it flatters her figure.

  • Pati

    I love it, and the earing are stunning!

  • Shell

    What makes her look so beautiful is you can’t smell the desperation for attention on her. She looks effortless which is refreshing

  • Lee Ann

    This is how to dress for an event but keep it elegant and young.

  • anamika

    beautiful dress
    her face is okay
    to me this easy day to day hair style is not cuppa tea!

    I think this dress could been more pumped and worned in more torride attitude … some hot blooded women (Sophia Loren)

    no oooomph

    • Laura’s Opinion

      I known what you mean. I don’t think she owned the dress. A red blooded woman, like….. Penelope Cruz or someone. Even Catherine Zeta Jones. She was still the best dressed at the event

  • mol

    I can only echo all the love – a class act, truly gorgeous!

  • Lia


  • AJoanna

    This may be one of my favorite red carpet dresses of all time. The color, fit, and drape are absolutely divine. Jennifer looks fantastic. I don’t think she even realizes how ridiculousy amazing she looks.

    • Fashion Critic

      Spot on. She has no clue.

  • lilili

    Wow, very beautifull, very elegant, indeed mesmerizing!
    I also love the newcomer, both she and jen are wearing this beautifull blue 🙂

  • Best dressed, definitely!

    For me, Garner often has the problem that she looks somewhat homely even tho she’s dress to the nines. But this time, she doesn’t. She looks so, so good! I love how the loose waves work so well on her. Beautiful!

  • pipsqueak

    Stunning! Jen seems to have lost some weight, which gave the look a more airy feel. But that’s a minor point. Mostly, I love the color and design of the gown. I also love how she looked very poised, graceful and sophisticated here – big change from her grins-with-dimples, ponytail-fits-all days.

  • Dhppy

    This took my breath away. Jennifer looks effortlessly glamorous. Elie Saab is amazing, and the latest couture collection had me agog.

  • Laura’s Opinion

    I feel like the event was a style win. Everyone dressed as well as they could. Expect for JLO who proved everyone right and dressed exactly how they would expect her to dress.

  • Marybeth

    Beautiful. Classy.

  • Joy

    I’m in total agreement!! Jennnifer looks absolutely beautiful. She looks super elegant. I liked a lot of the looks but found this dress to be perfect for the occasion. Some of the other looks just don’t go with meeting the future King & Queen. I too was very surprised by the tackiness of my girl JLO.

  • Alex

    Once again FC I absolutely agree with you. The colour is just simply divine. She surprised me in the best way possible looking so fantastic. I love the loose style of the dress, and her make up and hair are flawless.

    I seriously don’t remember such well dressed event in a long while.

  • N.

    This is my BDOTW. It’s an excellent look, I love the way the fabric drapes against her body, and the rich navy fabric which balances the minimalism of the dress. She looks hot, amazing, stunning… and as elegant as one can look. I love her make-up as well.

  • Nat39

    Love the gown, and the earrings go well with it. The clutch however is too boxy for this dress, and I’d prefer a gorgeous updo with it.

  • mark

    the fit isn’t great imo. too loose in the middle portion. definitely wouldn’t class this as ‘best dressed’ of the night.

    • Aimz14

      i agree, the colour is amazing but i don’t think the draping is quite right. it looks like there is some excess material in the middle potion imo.

  • Maggie

    She looks sensational, such a good colour for her. She looks really good with her lightened hair also.

  • STUNNING! I love deep blue for evening. This looks like the dress Halle Berry wore recently in raspberry?

    • Fashion Critic

      Very similar, you are right

  • Leti

    This is definitely a case where the wearer makes the dress! Jenn is owning this, and I love it. I wish we could see the Duchess in something like this. This is how to dress modestly, but keep it interesting (of course, even exposing one should might be too revealing for Catherine).

  • rebecca o

    This is the best she’s looked in ages. Very elegant.

  • Karis

    Jennifer gets my silver medal for this event. Only beaten by the gorgeous Reem Acra look from Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

  • Linda

    She does look beautiful. I haven’t seen her look this great for a long while. The navy colour really complements her.

  • Incroyable

    FLAW-FREE! The level of grace and divinity in this look is truly hypnotic.

  • Alina

    My other favourite of the night. Stunning – so regal !

  • moja31

    I can’t remember the last time she looked this hot; she looks stunning.

  • Laura’s Opinion

    This is how you do it. This is Hollywood Royalty. I love the gold earrings, Very rachel Zoe. I bet she styled this, the girls work together a lot.

    Take note JLO! Come Princess Kate, we are all rooting for you.

  • akyla

    you just like me, i LOVE elie saab too! he’s sooooo BRILLIANT!

  • justme

    The dress is beautiful but too simple for my taste.
    I’m in love with the make-up though, Jennifer looks radiant.
