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?

I also think she is masculine, such as Felicity Hoffman and Hillary Swank.

Her shoulders are huge, so IMHO, she would look better with another type of dress.

She’s absolutely gorgeous. Love her and Ben together–they seem so down-to-earth which doesn’t happen too much in Hollywood!!

She looks great but I don’t know if the dress is right for her. I love seeing her in “mommy mode”. That’s what most real people look like. Its nice to know she can dress like herself in comfty clothes. Good for her, for not having a fake tan or extensions. She is one of the most ‘real’ celebrities. Not everyone gets dressed up to go to the supermarket. And when she does get dressed up, it looks natural, not like she tried too hard. Grats Jen on being gorgeous!

Jennifer Garner is one of the hottest out there. She is one of the lucky few who CAN go out without makeup! Everyone slamming her is only jealous. She looked amazing before Violet, and this is proof that she looks amazing after! Go Jennifer!!!

I love her and she looks great in that dress. I would do her in a heart beat and I don’t even swing that way.

I have always loved her “Down-to-Earth” looks, she is a breath of fresh air compaired to other celebs such as Britney & Paris. While I agree with some that she could use a dab of makeup, I feel that she looks beautiful nonetheless.

She is not very pretty and you are right, she does look like a man dressed like a woman

I don’t love the dress but she is beautiful regardless. She has always been natural, confident and classy, just like any woman should be.
