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?

Sorry, but in the Star Tracks photo of the same dress, she looks like she’s wearing a bath towel. The dress just doesn’t do her upper body any favors.

Beautiful. Sexy. Sophisticated.

OK, if she looks like a man to some of you, you are definitely
seeing the wrong type of men.

She looks ultra feminine, and amazingly beautiful. Motherhood and marriage agrees with her. But then, being married to Ben Affleck would put a glow in any woman’s cheeks.

I think jealously is a nasty emotion to express in a blog. Shame on those who have.

I wish her and her lovely family all the best.

I usually thinks she looks great but I actually think she looks like a transsexual. Her face definitely looks like a man in both pics.

She looks awesome…Maybe Britney needs to be hanging out with her instead of Paris. Perfect example of how you can look sexy without looking like a cheap hooker….britney.

She is my fave celb you hear/see her just enough to keep you wanting more…
I think she looks GREAT!!

Louise Kearson on

Her body is smoking hot, but I have to agree her face looks very man-like in both pictures.

Her hair is beautiful, but it just doesn’t look right on her. She has a great body, that dress is gorgeous, and she is beautiful, but something about this look is just off!

Lindsay on

I have to admit that I love Jen Garner, but I do think she looks a bit manish. For her height and body-type, I’m not sure that style of dress is best for her, though the color is absolutely gorgeous. Maybe if the dress went to her knees…regardless she looks amazing especially post-baby.

Women should embrace what they have. It is refreshing to see a celebrity do that. No fake eyelashes, no sprayed on tan, no hair extensions. Jennifer is a natural beauty. I respect her more for putting herself out there as she is instead of hiding behind something she is not, or doesn’t have.
