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 think she’s beautiful either way. I can honestly say I like her hair straight, though. I think it doesn’t look too great wavy like that, but she can pull it off. As a mother of two babies, (16 and 4 months – 1 year apart), I can say that I definitely understand her “mom” look! It’s comfortable and practical, and I definitely think she’s a great mom, from what we’ve seen…which is nice that she doesn’t flaunt her daughter in public! She takes being a mom seriously, which is what somebody else needs to do, too, or she’ll quicklky be losing her kids to Fed Ex.

I don’t know any man that looks like that, but maybe some of you do. I think she looks great. She has always looked like the girl next door to me. Who says you have to dress boxy or ugly just because you have toned shoulders and a small bust???

Wow. it is truly amazing how nasty some people like to get about celebrities. If talking trash about Jen makes you feel better, then I feel really sorry for you guys. You can say you don’t like a dress or the style of someone, etc but calling them nasty names is just plain old mean-spirited. I’d like to see how much better you can do in front of the paparazzi.

on a more positive note, I think Jen looks fabulous!

I think people are saying she has a “manish” face not body.
Which she does.

Jen looks HOT! She has somewhat angular features, but I don’t see anything “manly” about her. Love the new haircut.

Jen looks awesome!!! I love that she took her time losing her baby weight and didn’t feel the need to rush and shed it all in about 3 months. She is such a great role model for young women. Ben should be thanking his lucky stars!
