Jennifer Garner typically favors classic, feminine gowns with a fitted waist and gently flared skirt. Her ensemble at ‘The Tribes Of Palos Verdes’ LA premiere on Friday (November 17) in Los Angeles, California had many of those elements but it still captivated me.
The rich oxblood velvet of her Johanna Ortiz Fall 2017 dress had a sophisticated sensuality. This mood was enhanced by the asymmetrical sweetheart bodice.
The ruffled sleeve on the runway version would have made a romantic statement, but I get why she removed it as she normally favors cleaner silhouettes.
The blue-green sandals played up the sumptuous texture of the dress while adding a retro feel. Although, I must say I would have preferred a shoe without a platform.
How do you feel about the modified version of the frock?
