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 love Jen, but in the picture of her in a dress, her face looks sort of weird.

To all of you who think she looks like a man, I’d like to see any of you pull this look off! Stop thinking in Hollywood standards and appreciate that she is a beautiful woman!

I saw her in a different pose same night/outfit. Her hair looks great and healthy. Super legs & shoulders!! This picture of her is not one of the best but….I am going off the other one. She looks great!! Way to go!! :O)

i think jen is gorgeous in her picture from the red carpet. as for the other picture she needs some work but i mean really how many people do you know that look good all the time especially when they have a baby and get no sleep.

she looks unsure of herself as if she is thinking that everyone is scrutinizing her body since she had her baby, and that no matter what she looks like, someone somewhere is going to say something negative. she is probably standing there saying, “crap, I wish these photographers will go away, cause as soon as I move my face they will take an unflattering picture of me. She is a natual gal, and is not so concerned about posing, as she is about living. I do not understand the public’s interest and obsession in picking at public figures. It is the public that made them “famous” otherwise they would be next in line behind us at the grocery store

The manish face doesn’t bother me, but her very broad shoulders I don’t dig. What makes her pretty is not really her looks, (she’s not the most attractive girl) but her disposition. She seems like a nice person. She either looks really bummy or really glam. What about just looking kind of good consistently? I know, I know, she’s a new mom, blah blah, You could still look casual and cute. Nice jeans, some flats, a little lip gloss.

It looks as if she’s trying to dress sexier, and frankly…it’s very akward to look at. She doesn’t seem to be her usual self. What’s so wrong with being bland, if that’s how you really are? I mean, especially if your husband is the exact same way, what’s the point of changing up your image for him?

By the way, Ben is milking his new “wholesome,” family man image for all it’s worth so he can get that Oscar he’s been dreaming for. I always knew he was a careerist. He’s only happy if people are praising him. Insecure people are always looking for validation.

There you go America. You finally have your whitebread, pure, wholesome, golden Bennifer you always dreamed of. Be grateful, and quit blaming J.Lo for everything. That includes you, Ben!
