Jennifer Aniston In Valentino – 2013 Oscars


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.

    I like that she wore a different silhouette and colour but I don’t like the fabric much and I do really wish she had done something with her hair. She looks nice but I wouldn’t call her a style star.

    It’s truly a masterpiece on the runway but it didn’t translate well on Jennifer. It looks lackluster compared to the runway one. Overall I find this a great look but it could have been one of the best had she opted for a different hair and makeup.

    Only Jennifer Aniston could make a dress this great look so boring. I was excited that she didn’t wear black, beige, or white for once; however, WHY can’t she wear her hair DIFFERENT for once?!

    She’s worn up-dos before, hasn’t she??

    I really surpris .she’s a woman of rare personal beauty. She was very good looking.. Looks like princess.
    The hair and red dress so pretty. I love red dress. She is most lovely.
    Jenn. You are so beautiful. Best good look…

    I think the dress is amazing!

    I wish the hair was a bit different…not necesserily up, but maybe something like she had at the Oscar couple of years ago

    i can overlook the hair, as its so amazing to see her in a bright colour! the dress is lovely and she should definitely wear colour more often. love this look

  7. Stel February 25, 2013 at 6:08 pm #

    Oh my girl!! Love her!! Although the hair should be different, but she’s so sexy that I don’t care!

  8. zineb February 25, 2013 at 4:38 pm #

    Question : does she know that brushes & up dos exist ? I can always mail her one of my brushes if she wants to

    I think it is sort of pitiful that we all give her so much fashion credit simply for NOT wearing black. Come on, she’s a gorgeous woman with a killer bod and supposedly some of the best hair in Hollywood. She could do better. Yes it’s not black, whoopee (sarcasm) It is red, but it is also boring and makes her look heavier than she is. She styled it way too casually. Her hair should have been up and some gorgeous earrings would have helped. I’m not giving her credit for a simple color choice, when all her other choices are mediocre.

  10. Parvati February 25, 2013 at 4:08 pm #

    Given the fact that she usually wears black and rather boring outfit, this big red dress is a very welcome change!

  11. Chi February 25, 2013 at 10:13 am #

    I’m so torn…….
    i like her in movies, but she’s such a snore at any event!!! I used to have hair envy now I’m just bored

  12. Andy February 25, 2013 at 9:34 am #

    Boring and ill fitting. I guess I should be happy its not black but I would have preferred that to this mess.

  13. Zee February 25, 2013 at 8:11 am #

    She has a long chin, so I totally understand she never opts for an updo. She has an amazing body, and looks very happy, I like this look head to toe.

  14. the ogre February 25, 2013 at 6:30 am #

    i’m just so happy that she wore red that i don’t care about how dated the look is plus she looked really happy on the red carpet.

  15. Ruff February 25, 2013 at 5:49 am #

    The fabric doesn´t even look the same. They custom made a very cheap version of the original for Aniston, imho.

  16. Lashae February 25, 2013 at 5:23 am #

    The hair and dress very unflattering. She has had this same hair style for the past 10 years and still hasn’t changed it, even for the Oscars. Only good thing would be it was not black.

  17. Kate February 25, 2013 at 4:55 am #

    I think the colour and silhouette look gorgeous on Jen! But I wish she would’ve done something different with her hair though…

  18. RW February 25, 2013 at 4:42 am #

    I wasn’t expecting much with Jen as she is so predictable. I was glad she was in a color other than black. I agree with the commentator regarding her hair. She rarely ever puts her hair up. I am not trying to be mean but I don’t think this is because of her chill ‘Californian’ style but that she doesn’t like the way her jawline looks. Even on the rare occasion when she puts her hair up, she always covers her jaw with wisps of hair.

    Also, this dress reminds me of a more voluminous version of the dress she wore to the Emmys right after marrying Brad (secret revenge much?).

  19. Moxie February 25, 2013 at 3:49 am #

    A little safe. Definitely prefer to Jennifer Lawrence’s similar gown with the conical boobs.

  20. Leti February 25, 2013 at 3:05 am #

    I wasn’t wowed by this on the red carpet, but it was nice to see her wearing that gorgeous color and a different silhouette. That said, I liked it much better when I saw her walk on stage to present. I would have been overjoyed if she’d worn her hair up….

    I like this look! I think it would have helped if she was in a better stance, maybe a fierce pose! I found the colour much better on the television

  22. Fromchi-town February 25, 2013 at 2:55 am #

    Well she is not in black… But I don’t like it, the hair totally killed it. I cannot look past the hair.

  23. LEI February 25, 2013 at 2:43 am #

    The dress is a bit long to her.As usual,same hairstyle.No wow factor for me.Although the dress is nice but it does not suit her.

  24. nice February 25, 2013 at 2:41 am #

    The dress is nice but I think, it is more appropriate to younger ones like Jennifer Lawrence.
    She has the same hair style again.Neither a bad look nor a good one,just on the safe side.Well,anyway,she seldom experiments on the bold side.

  25. WhoDidItBest February 25, 2013 at 2:00 am #

    way too much material. I guess we should be happy she isn’t wearing BLACK. Her hair should’ve been in an updo.

  26. EmmaWoodhouse February 25, 2013 at 1:54 am #

    The gown could have been lovely, but unfortunately her slumped shoulders and same-old same-old hair is bringing it down. Her clutch and bracelets are nice but I’m not wowed.

    • anmelt February 25, 2013 at 3:24 am #

      She looks quite nice but you’re right, her posture really is not great.

  27. TeaAtTwo February 25, 2013 at 1:51 am #

    It looks better on the runway but this is a great look for Jennifer. Yes, should have done something with the hair though.

  28. Marybeth February 25, 2013 at 1:50 am #

    The hair, which works so well with her usual California style, does not work here. If she had worn her hair up, this would have been lovely.

  29. mm February 25, 2013 at 1:46 am #

    The hair was boring. didnt like the dress on her. Love the color

  30. Jai February 25, 2013 at 1:39 am #

    You know, I really liked this on her. It was a different silhouette and on camera, it had a comfortable and effortless vibe. Can’t say I love the hair but that isn’t going to change at this stage.

    • Rashmi February 25, 2013 at 9:18 am #

      Exactly. I really really really liked her in this.
      It is so unlike her to look so refreshing and elegant at the same time. And it is not black.
      I really loved this!

  31. Elise February 25, 2013 at 1:35 am #

    The gown looks sooo different on the least it’s not black.

    • Yeliz February 25, 2013 at 4:54 am #


  32. Nat39 February 25, 2013 at 1:35 am #

    Nice to see red colour on her but the gown is nothing special, a bit of a deja vu (makes me think of Zooey Deschanel at Golden Globes), the hair should`ve been in an elegant updo. Nothing memorable.

  33. Nadia February 25, 2013 at 1:35 am #

    Oscars is about drama, but this just isn’t right. Don’t like it at all.

  34. vicky February 25, 2013 at 1:32 am #

    I wanted to like this but no…The hair, the dress it’s all a bit lackluster.
    Glad she’s in colour, though, which was highly missed on this years red carpet

  35. justme February 25, 2013 at 1:31 am #

    It’s not black so that’s positive.
    It’s still boring though. An updo or even a ponytail would have improved things tremendously.

  36. Christine February 25, 2013 at 1:28 am #

    This is not a good look. Was not expecting much from her but I am glad she did not opt for black.

  37. Ramsay February 25, 2013 at 1:28 am #

    She rarely does volume so it’s a nice change from her – and it’s not black for once – she’s in my top 5 best dressed
