Jennifer Garner: From Frumpy to Fab!

11/30/2006 at 12:34 PM ET

Wowza! We’ve gotten so used to seeing Jennifer Garner in mommy mode — comfy clothes, no makeup — with adorable daughter Violet, that we almost forgot what a knockout she is! Hitting the red carpet at the GQ Men of the Year Awards (husband Ben Affleck is featured in the issue) last night, the star sizzled in a strapless purple Versace minidress, tousled waves, and sexy peep-toe pumps. And if anyone was wondering if Baby #2 is on the way for Ben and Jen, her taut physique lays all those rumors to rest. Now, that’s one hot mama! Tell us: What do you think of Jen’s red-carpet look?

it may be mean to say it, but jennifer garner does have a unique face that is both pretty and interesting, and because of her striking and strong features, she sometimes looks a little masculine. although i think she seems like a nice, down to earth person, she’s a celebrity and what we do is judge them. i don’t think she ever dresses very well- it’s always a little “off,” and she always forgets something crucial. in this instance, her makeup is too plain, enhancing the man-ishness and the hair is a disaster. less poofy if you want to go curly or just straight would be better. fine if you want to think she has a great body, but a great dresser she’s not.

She has always been very pretty.

I see a lot of people commenting on how she looks like a man. I think that she has very strong facial features, but I don’t think she looks like a man at all. I think she’s gorgeous and I think she’s a wonderful Mom and a very good example to others (unlike Britney these days). She’s a role model in so many aspects both on the inside and the outside.

Jen on

I think she looks awesome for having a one yaer old.
