Jennifer Aniston In Valentino – 2013 Oscars

2013Oscars_JenniferAniston2

Presenter Jennifer Aniston was a highly anticipated arrival at the 2013 Academy Awards today at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center in California.

Rather appropriately for her first Oscars red carpet appearance in four years, Jennifer wore Valentino red, as she captured stares and camera flashes in her ball gown from the designer’s Spring 2013 Couture runway.

The strapless bodice and full skirt was a departure for Jennifer, who often opts for monochromatic tones and typically favours more body-conscious looks.

But it didn’t have as much dynamic impact as I would have liked. This is still a silhouette that we’ve seen strutted out by stars many times before.

In fact, the gown actually reminded me of Jennifer Lawrence’s 2013 Golden Globe Awards Christian Dior Couture statement—minus the pointy cone-bra bodice and belt.

Jen Aniston never wears her hair up on the red carpet, and tonight was no different with her effortless, straight blow-out. But I think this dress could have used a dose of pizzazz with a new ‘do.

Minimal jewels, including geometric diamond earrings and bangle bracelets, along with a matching red Salvatore Ferragamo clutch completed the look.

At this point, her best accessory might have been her fiancé Justin Theroux.

Jennifer Aniston In Christian Dior – 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Jennifer Aniston In Christian Dior - 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Being the big superstar that she is, Jennifer Aniston didn’t take to the red carpet for the 2013 People’s Choice Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California last night.

She was, however, captured backstage hugging her ‘Favourite Comedic Actress’ award wearing a Christian Dior leather dress.

My surprise here is twofold: firstly, that she’s not wearing Valentino and secondly, that she would select such an unflattering dress, which makes her appear wider than she actually is.

If she was going to stick to her formulaic LBD, I wish she had opted for a simpler, classic form-fitting silhouette.

No doubt her name alone will place her on many best-dressed lists, but it’s a no for me. Save the fit-and-flare dresses for the specialist, Kristin Davis.

Tom Ford black ankle-strap heels and Fred Leighton jewels completed her look.

Jennifer Aniston In Valentino – 2012 American Cinematheque Tribute To Ben Stiller

Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux attended the 2012 American Cinematheque Tribute, which honoured Ben Stiller for his significant contributions to the film industry, at the Beverly Hills Hotel yesterday evening.

The happily engaged couple wore matching black and white looks à la Posh and Becks: the Spice Girl years.

He wore a classic tux; Jennifer wore a sleek Valentino gown.

I was surprised that Jennifer picked this black strapless gown with a white bow, because it wasn’t all black.

Even her Valentino clutch was white.

While I appreciated the soon-to-be Mrs Theroux side-stepping out of her all-black comfort zone, I wish she’d styled her hair into a chic updo or even a classic chignon with this look.

Do you agree?

This gown made me think of Anne Hathaway’s 2007 Valentino Oscar gown.

Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux’ Romantic Stroll In Paris

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are currently in Paris for a romantic break – so much for the break-up rumours.

Looking happy, relaxed and very much in love, Jennifer and boyfriend Justin strolled through the city arm-in-arm as they took in the sights and indulged in a bit of retail therapy.

The couple were accompanied at all times by two burly bodyguards, so they could focus on only looking into each other’s eyes – or should I say each others aviators.

Jennifer stuck to her staples wearing a navy double-breasted Balmain blazer with a white tank top, jeans and white lace-up pumps.

Her accessories included aviator shades, a brown Tom Ford fold-over zipper bag and a Balmain bird-print silk scarf.

Jennifer Aniston In Burberry – 40th AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring Shirley MacLaine

Jennifer Aniston helped honour Shirley MacLaine on Thursday evening at a celebration of the 40th AFI Life Achievement Award, held at Sony Picture Studios in Culver City, California.

It seems as though Jen has finally heard our prayers, as she ditched her LBDs in favour of a white Burberry gown.

The strappy, no-fuss floor-length dress with cut-out back suits Jennifer’s laid-back persona, not to mention does wonders for her year-round tan.

Snakeskin Tabitha Simmons sandals and an ivory oversized Valentino clutch accessorized the look.

Are you thrilled that she finally wore another colour besides black, or are you still underwhelmed?
