Jennifer Garner In Gucci – 2013 Oscars

oscars-jennifer-garner

Jennifer Garner stood out from the sea of muted dresses on the red carpet Sunday at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’ actress wore a custom Gucci gown that looked stunning against her ivory skin.

The actress carried a Roger Vivier clutch and wore Neil Lane jewelry and in a year when most of the stars on the red carpet are taking a simplistic approach to their styling, her $2.5 million worth of jewels and dramatic ruffles evoke the spirit of years past when opulence was more du jour.

I love Jennifer’s brown smokey eyes and slightly messy updo, but her matte nude lips are just begging for at least a little shine.

    Thank goodness for Jennifer! I love this color on her, and the necklace is absolutely beautiful. The style of the dress would have been better with a ruffled princess skirt, but I can overlook the slightly awkward silhouette because thank goodness for color! Her hair and makeup are flawless here.

    Don´t care for all those ruffles, they look silly and randomly attached to me, the lips are way too pale.

      Spot on.

    This is could be Best Dressed for me…..Jennifer usually wears less than stylish clothes, but here she looks glamorous. I love everything about this look!

  7. Sara February 25, 2013 at 02:24 #

    She looked so much more radiant at the SAG awards, and sexier at the Golden Globes. This just isn’t doing anything for me – the necklace ages her.

  8. MaddyEliza February 25, 2013 at 02:26 #

    Lovely colour! And I love her hair, makeup, and that gorgeous necklace. Those ruffles are so awkward though. :(

    Luscious color, am dying to see the back of the dress, loving the drama of the ruffles and the jewels. Yes, she totally needed a berry lip and I’m ignoring the clutch, but still! Jennifer Garner, unleashing her inner diva…

  10. vicky February 25, 2013 at 02:32 #

    Better than most, but the ruffles are slightly distracting.
    Love the color!

  11. anmelt February 25, 2013 at 03:13 #

    Great colour but as someone who does not have much of a waist myself I wishes she had chosen a dress that would have given a bit more definition in that area. Otherwise she looks great, it looks better on the tv than in pictures.

  12. Moxie February 25, 2013 at 03:38 #

    The dress looks better from behind. Love the color of the dress, but the lips are much too matte and pale.

  13. Lashae February 25, 2013 at 05:17 #

    Best thing about the dress is the color and that’s about it.

    • justme February 25, 2013 at 08:27 #

      This.
      I love the purple but everything else is overkill: the ruffles, the necklace…

  14. Yeliz February 25, 2013 at 05:24 #

    From the front, this is a beautiful look, but I’m not liking all those ruffles.

  15. the ogre February 25, 2013 at 06:05 #

    she looked radiant on TV but even i don’t care for the ruffles but the color and that necklace are both breathtakingly beautiful. i’m happy still.

    I love how Jennifer takes risk and isn’t boring. The color is refreshing and the style of the dress is lovely especially since it is different then the hundred other gowns. Her makeup and accessories are perfect as well. She has had a great award season.

  17. Zee February 25, 2013 at 08:16 #

    She is so pulling off this look, one of the best dressed for sure, but I wonder how she managed to sit with all those ruffles. :)

  18. Andy February 25, 2013 at 09:29 #

    Quite boring but Jen is no fashion girl so I wasn’t expecting much from her.

  19. Noemi February 25, 2013 at 09:48 #

    Great dress, stunning necklace, but she needed a bit of lipstick. I’m not convinced by the hair, but she looked great, anyway.

  20. Beta February 25, 2013 at 10:12 #

    too much ruffle for my taste but good for her for taking a fashion risk :)
    the colour really does suit her

  21. Amy February 25, 2013 at 10:22 #

    great color, but I don’t get what’s going on in the back

  22. dee February 25, 2013 at 13:58 #

    I don’t like the dress. Hir, makeup and necklace are lovely.

  23. Camille February 25, 2013 at 15:36 #

    Finally some color. This year’s Oscars seemed so muted color wise. I love the vibrant color on Jennifer and the gown is lovely. I actually liked the ruffles and thought they looked wonderful as she walked across the stage, tho I don’t know how they were to sit on all night.

    Her necklace was stunning tho I’m not 100% sure it was the right choice for this dress. Her hair was soft and lovely. Where I felt she messed up was with her makeup. The uber nude lip seemed to be all the rage this Oscar’s and frankly it left most of the women looking chalky and washed out. I felt Jennifer desperately needed a berry or pink lip color to brighten up her look. The necklace is so grey and the eye makeup so grey and then to pair it with a chalky colorless lip, ugh!

    Nude lips are very hard to carry off in real life. Most ‘nude’ lips still need a hint of color to avoid looking chalky. Jennifer would have glowed with a brighter lip color or even a soft rose or pink nude would have been an improvement.

  24. Camille February 25, 2013 at 15:39 #

    P.S. Tho I did like the gown, I noticed it made her look very flat chested. I would have liked the gown better if it had given her a little more feminine sillouhette.

  25. Parvati February 25, 2013 at 16:16 #

    Great look!

  26. S-R February 25, 2013 at 16:29 #

    She’s such a timeless beauty. I think I would root for her in a garbage bag. I am just that partial when it comes to Garnier.

    • S-R February 25, 2013 at 16:30 #

      Garner*. Ugh.

  27. Miguel Angel February 25, 2013 at 17:20 #

    I looved it, maybe one of my favorites from the whole evening. It’s just a shame you’re not chowing any pictures from the back, which I think are the really interesting part from the dress :)

  28. Stel February 25, 2013 at 18:14 #

    Great colour of the dress, although the rffles are not so good, but she had to use a lip gloss..

  29. Jane February 25, 2013 at 20:12 #

    Fabulous colour amid a sea of vomitous nude/blush. Loved it.

  30. Liz February 26, 2013 at 00:32 #

    Beautiful color and the dress look excellent in motion.

  31. TeaAtTwo February 26, 2013 at 01:07 #

    The dress looked better from behind than front on. I hate the necklace; it’s unnecessary and the lips needed some colour.

  32. gabis February 26, 2013 at 20:05 #

    She looks gorgeous, the colour is great and I LOVE her hair, makeup and accessories. But the shoes are heavy, the ruffles are weird and I feel like she’s done this type of column gown many many times before.
