In or Out: Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston attends the Women In Film 2009 Crystal + Lucy Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City, California in a modified Prada dress.


What do we think of this one, kittens?


Prada Spring 2009 Collection
Model: Sasha Pivovarova



On the one hand, she clearly works damn hard to keep that body and if she wants to show it off, she's earned it. On the other hand, tight, short, and shiny, y'know?


The whole "Here I am, boys!" aspect of it comes off a little desperate and the dress itself looks weirdly unfinished or rather, it looks like it was finished, and then damaged somehow. Like she washed it in her dishwasher or something.

And here's a little tip from us to you, ladies.


If you are at an event where you will be standing a great deal and you're the type of gal who, after a couple hours in 4-inch heels, has all the blood rush to her throbbing feet causing every vein to triple in size, then DON'T wear you're nearly naked shoes. Jen honey, those feet look TORTURED.

Too much, kittens. We're gonna have to give this one a throbbing, desperate OUT.

i actually like the shoes because they elongate her nice legs. but, i agree on the charges of "short, tight and shiny" (not to mention wrinkled, bra-like and with the odd flap in the back).

OUT


Oh God, is she OUT.


Yeah the original is nice but hers is too young and too STS...and I totally agree about the shoes, I'm tired of seeings stars beat up feet! OUT


queeniethebold

The shoes don't look like they "go" with the dress at all, quite apart from looking like they're killing her feet.

The dress is just a hot mess. i like the original much better.

It always puzzles me when people like this -- who can wear absolutely anything, because they have such fabulicious bodies -- end up looking this bad.


Knew it was an OUT when I saw only the thumbnail image. It takes someone very young to pull this one off.

Jiffy Pop dress gets a thumbs down.

-gg


Its trying to say, 'It's not my fault he left.'

But instead, it screams, 'Jiffy Pop's ready!!'

Too bad you missed the shot after this one where the Reynolds Wrap ladies added some vegetables and tossed her on the grill.

How long does this look need in the oven?


Jen, it's not subtle the message you're trying to convey..but we already knew you live on the sun and have boobs.

Probably the most food she's been exposed to in a decade.


I'm tired of this broad.

I don't care if I hear anything about her ever again.


Awful. It's nice enough in the longer, black version. As good as JA looks, the one she's wearing is awful.


If the fit in the bust wasn't so off - and the hemline wierd (and cheap looking) - and the colour not so close to her actual colour - and the... and the...

forget this, nothing is saving this look. The original is beautiful, but it fits the model and is styled much better.


I love JA, and it pains me to see her in this dress. It calls for the classic "what was she thinking?" She has nothing to prove, so I can't imagine what made her put this thing on in the first place, let alone wear it.

A huge OUT.


Way to butcher a Prada dress. OUT!


She has an amazing body but she looks chip in a chip way in that dress. Will shiny metallic fabrics ever go away? I can't stand it.


Am I the only one who thinks toe rings = tattooed bar maid? I hate em. And ankle bracelets too. Yuck. On another matter, Gotham - you are much too clever to be referencing the ex-husband topic. Time to let it go?


It only works in black, I hate the modified version. OUT!


Geesh. I expected some of this but the hash OUT's but when some people actually had the gaul to excuse the monsterous mess that was Michelle O in the previous post, I did not expect this much hate... But then I looked back and see most the posters so far today are OTHER WOMEN and the light bulb went off..

The look is not as sophisticated as it should/could me, but she does look great.

Cover up, Mary. Your slip is showing.

There was enough hate on the ShelleyO outfit. It just wasn't your opinion, so it was okay.


OUT, just out. She's a beautiful woman but this doesn't work for her for several reasons, most that have already been stated. At some point every woman has to accept she isn't an ingenue any longer. How excellent she would have looked if she had worn the black version, even if it was hemmed at knee length. People would have still been raving about it.


I passed by the TV set last night when a clip of Aniston in this dress was on, and I immediately thought, "Oh dear, this must be a little news item about her having a wardrobe malfunction, because those boobs are going to pop out any minute now." Now I see it was an intentional malfunction. Any outfit that makes me nervous for a malfunction is OUT.

Why didn't she wear the outfit as originally presented by Prada? Not only does that color and length look fantastic, but it would have allowed Aniston to do some much-needed maturing with her public look.


It is rare, IMO, the JA takes complete leave of her senses and dresses in something this bizarre. It's a weird color, and why would a woman who usually dresses pretty sensibly change a designer dress into something this color?

I did some research.

Jennifer Aniston is the recipient of the 2009 Crystal Award. She wasn't just attending the thing, she was getting an award.

I'm thinking the key word in her choice of dress was "Crystal"; hence, the silver, shiny, and tight attire.

Even though I agree this is a big OUT for JA, I'm wondering if there was an attempt to make a connection between what she was wearing and the award itself.


OUT in eighteen point text size.

TLo, a spot-on commentary.

yes, the woman has been trying too hard ever since Brad Pitt divorced her. Now she's positively desperate looking.

And those feet? Jeez, girl, get some three inch heels. We do NOT want to see that ever again.

Eighteen thumbs down.


I do think people are over-reacting a tad. Jen's hair looks fabulous, the dress is a terrible fit, but I don't think she's desperate. It looks like a failed attempt at "shimmery bronze goddess". If the dress fit well, I don't think it would be too "young" for her. The skirt is almost too short, the bust almost too low. But only almost. I totally agree about the shoes though...my feet would never put up with that shoe and clearly her's aren't either.

News flash - I think ALL women in 4 inch heals have tortured feet. But all of the fashion mavens say that they look "amazing" and elongate the leg. So we continue to wear them (yes, we are crazy). A friend once said that she can wear high heels because, "She hasn't felt her feet in years." Yep, you havta wear 'em till you lose all feeling, otherwise they just hurt.

By the way, why shouldn't a dress made out of Reynolds wrap look wrinkled? The plus was that she could use it to broil up some fish later in the evening.


It looks like someone burned the outfit while steaming it. Love her, but that's a NO, NO, NO outfit. OUT!


Mariana (The Unoriginal)

Too tight, too shiny, too short, it's TOO much. She's a gorgeous woman, she doesn't need to look sexy, she IS sexy.


It is just so sad, but I really think that sometimes people like Jennifer Aniston pick short, tight and shiny on purpose just so people like us will have her name on our lips. And, thanks to Brittney, so many starlets these days actually work hard to have a wardrobe malfunction. JA is so much more than a starlet, though. Come on, Jenny, strap on the dignity.


OMG...I got beat to the "Jiffy Pop" and "Reynolds Wrap" comparisons of this short, shiney, OH SO OUT thing (I cannot even begin to call it a look or dress).
Jen, it's time to stop with the "I'm still in Friends" style.
Grow up, and get those feet pronto to a good podiatrist. They look diseased. OUT!


Totally OUT.

Jiffy Pop - hahahahahaha! Snort!


Whoever gave her that dress to wear did an awful job on the fit - it's like the top piece is a size bigger than the bottom piece. If the bottom half had fit as loosely as the top does it would have looked 10 times better. I do however appreciate that she tried to keep the shoes very neutral in order to not over-do the shine. And apparently tried to match her spray tan to the shoes.
She's still Jennifer Aniston anyway and I still think she's great. Angelina Jolie can suck it!


I'd call this one a close but not quite. I'm fine with the silver material -- this is HOLLYWOOD, I like my stars a bit over the top -- but she'd have looked classier in the original length. It also looks like the dress wasn't hemmed all that well. My big problem with this is the fit. Too tight in the bust and the skirt, too loose around her midsection.

Methinks Jennifer was trying to send the message that she looks good naked... and instead her look is saying "she'd look BETTER naked."


One plus of the dress is that she doesn't need a reflector when she goes tanning. In addition to Jiffy Pop, it's insta-bake.


Why is it that so many celebrities wear ill-fitting clothes? I mean, presumably they're wearing it for the designer, who wants it to look good, or they own it, so they'd buy it with the right fit or have it altered. So... why does this happen so often?


It doesn't look like it fits in the boobs, and the silver fabric emphasizes the wrinkles in the design. I'll be honest, I didn't like the original version of the dress, but the way Jennifer is wearing it makes her look like a cougar. No on the shoes, too, for the reasons you mentioned.
However, the hair, makeup and cocktail ring look great!


Yeah I'm going to have to agree and say OUT. It's something wonky with the length in the back of the dress too, it does look unfinished like she cut it herself and while the color/metallic is flattering to her skin tone it's a little overwelming with the style of the dress.


It really needed the belt (or A belt at least). Also, the fit seems a bit wonky, and with a textured dress like that, fit has to be spot on to keep it from looking sloppy.


Man, what's with all these starlet 'dress-modifications'? Why choose a Prada dress if you're going to alter it beyond recognition?

Do designers even appreciate being worn by celebrities on the red carpet, when the design's no longer theirs (through 'modification')?

Why fight it, Hollywood? Bebe's what you really want to wear. You're not fooling any of us in these Frankstein Pradas.


"Laura said...

That's the problem. It looks elegant in black, in silver it just looks tacky.


Her feet probably look like that anyway, because she is athletic.

It is tight, shiny, and short, but considering Jen usually wears boring black dresses with undone, straight hair I will say this is fine for her. It's not fashion forward but it's certainly not terrible, and she looks healthy and happy in it. IN.


It's a tin foil dress. OUT. She also looks way too tanned.


Is that a ring I see on her fourth toe? (Who should we call first-- Hedda, or Louella?)


"Lisa said...

YUP.


Does anyone remember the Huey Lewis video for "Happy to be stuck with you"? The model/love interest gets shipwrecked with Huey on a deserted island and her big, shiny 80s dress is torn and shredded ... and still looks better than Jen's.
Have a great day everyone! Gary


I think the background was trying to say, "WTF Jen??!"


Robert Best's Alfoil dress looked better.


My only problem with this look is how poorly the bodice fits here. Otherwise, she'd be in.


Why do stylists take a runway look that is perfectly styled and proportioned and alter it beyond recognition? Aniston is as tall as a runway model and the original length would have been cool and sophisticated.

Although, I'm not sure that the metalic fabric enhances the design at all. Still, I would not have wanted her to wear black.


"Anonymous said...

Exactly!...or Jay's dress for the first challenge.


I think the fabric is supposed to be crinkled, which is fine,but it is over tight in the seat and hips and the crinkle is pulled out. So the top and waist look wrinkled by comparison.
If she had the little bolero and original length ,silver might have worked. But this is too short tight and shiny. The original black would have been a no brainer IN. This is borderline. She is over tanned, too.


But look at her face!! OMG 40 year olds like her make us 20 year olds want to kill ourselves :(


"Karishma said...

If you had her money you'd look just as good or even better. These people have dozens of people helping them look like that.


Ack! Out!

Bad fit, worse fabric, awful color.

And the feet? Shudder. Oh Jen, please consider investing in a pedicure.


This dress looks like something that my kids make out of tin foil for their action figures.


It's so ill-fitted on her...it's insane.


I wasn't crazy about this collection and I love Prada. Shine and wrinkle don't go together. The modified version is even worse. I also don't think that the shoes go with the dress.


bitchybitchybitchy

Slutty, slutty, slutty-Out,Out, Out.

Sure, Aniston has every right to show off the goods, she could have done that with a much better dress than this.


This was a generally ugly collection from Prada, sorry to say. It all looked like she had been too lazy to bother pressing the garments and fitting her models. Bleh.


I'm going to be a fence sitter - I can go with barely in or barely out.

If the bust looked less precarious and there were more fabric to the skirt, it would have been a lovely dress on a lovely woman. I think that there needs to be more of the rippled/crinkled fabric so it can be appreciated as the point of the dress, rather than suggesting that she's been rolling around in the back of a humid limo.


She is, of course, stunning, and it's a testament to that gorgeousness that she can unwrap a giant baked potato, wrap herself in the foil, and still have any disagreement as to whether or not she looks good.

I mean really, what's with that discoloration that enhances the Jiffy Pop/baked tater look?


that would be "formerlyAnon"

This is one of the most frustrating things about Hollywood and actresses who are hitting the 4-0: they can't graduate to a mature look because then they no longer exist for movie makers and the bean counters. Hollywood wants young, tight and nearly naked females. Women aren't allowed to play in Hollywood unless they contort/starve/botox themselves into plastic versions of themselves.
Whoops, I'm ranting again...


No, no, no! The background actually reads, "WTF! WTF!"


Tinfoil, tinfoil, tinfoil. And bra cups should never make an appearance on any garment outside the bedroom.


Kinda looks like she wrapped herself in tin foil after a trip to tanning salon.


It looks like she's been wrapped in dull tin foil.


oh dear-that's a big, fat, resounding OUT. She looks like she's dressed in a Wrigley's gum wrapper.

Back atcha, bbb...That's a great observation, but it makes me wonder if a female actress's best strategy might not be to dress older and classier from a young age (kind of like what we see with Anne Hathaway and even Scarlett J) because then you minimize the sartorial damage that hitting the speed-bump of the big 4-0 can do to your career. But I still think Aniston could have worn this dress, as originally styled by Prada, and everyone would have loved it and raved about how classy she looked.


i dont like her anyway. OUT


oh lord. Out. Looks like she's been wrapped in tin foil.


Okay, fine, I wasn't the first to reference tin foil. didn't have time to read all comments!


Oy. I agree that this dress screams desperation. It makes me feel sad for her.


She's such a gorgeous woman, but it's all just rather garish.
OUT.
But her feet will send us all gift bags in thanks.


All I see is the new face of Jiffy Pop. What if we heated her up on the stove and shook her?

So you've never seen Oprah..or (with a huge FT staff) or half of the plastic (surgery) tragedies?

Money alone can only take you so far.


For me, it's not so much that the dress looks like tinfoil, which it does. It's also not so much that overbaked tan of hers, which is made worse by the nearly naked fuck-me sandals. It's the fact that the tinfoil clashes with the tan.

OUT.


"bitchybitchybitchy said: This is one of the most frustrating things about Hollywood and actresses who are hitting the 4-0: they can't graduate to a mature look because then they no longer exist for movie makers and the bean counters."




Aw, c'mon. We all see 40 year old nobodies making the same mistakes all the time (& they look even worse because they haven't had the benefit of the expensive maintenance). I don't see it as being about being an actress. It's the same for every woman (except the very dull ones).

It actually says "WIF," but it's funny that it's so close.


That is a huge OUT. But I don't like the dress in black, either. Maybe Sewing Siren can comment on why the fabric is so wrinkled on both dresses - ? Yuck for a dress that is meant to be sophisticated.

One positive thing about JA - at least she's not wearing black, which she does way too much. But she should embrace color at some point.


Jen's in, but I am firing her stylist.


Sewing Siren said: "I think the fabric is supposed to be crinkled, which is fine,but it is over tight in the seat and hips and the crinkle is pulled out. So the top and waist look wrinkled by comparison."

Sorry I missed your post, and thanks for giving some insight.

LMAO. Couldn't Jen's 'stylist' have fashioned a little hat or wand from a kitchen utensil?


too many cats

Definitely mutton that vaguely remembers being lamb.

I hate the fabric. Now, today, it's also on Heidi, a very pregnant Heidi, who has made the Jiffy Pop description her own. And I thought JA had that description for at least a week or two.


yeah, there are some problems with the dress and the fit but i don't think she looks desperate. she looks kind of happy and hot, like "fuck it, i want to wear this".


Oh Jen. I think the only way this could be worse would be if you were wearing shiny gold heels.


She looks good but I don't like the dress. I still think she can carry off short and tight, but I'm not a fan of shiny.

In the past, she's relied on black a lot and more basic looks, so maybe she's trying to break out.

Still, she always looks nice, her hair and makeup are great, so I'll give her an IN. What a body, and give her Greek heritage some credit for her young looks. Her dad looked great for a long, long time. Truth be told, I looked pretty great at 40, and I'm not Greek and I don't take great care of my skin; it's oily, though, so that helps.


the original is way cuter

hers is so.... wrinkly? and unflattering as well


I'm sincerely curious, ARE there women who can stand around in 4" heels for a couple hours and NOT have their feet bug out?

I just figured it was something they put up with along with the paparazzi and not eating for all the glory.

Maybe you a 'how to wear 4" heel elegantly' posting.


What I find interesting is that the original is more in step with what she usually wears. This silver thing is a little out of her element.

That being said, she should have stuck with the original.


Tinfoil.


My feet hurt just looking at hers...


Painful. The whole thing is just painful. Desperately so.

And damn girl, get a pedicure!


Am I the only one who saw that dress and thought "duct tape prom contest"?


Jen looks absolutely gorgeous! This is the best I have ever seen her
look.


She used to look quietly understated and wear clothes that fit her well and showed off her good body. OUT!


Not the most flattering dress and color. She should have kept it modest and minimal. She looks like a desperate housewife of LA.


The black version is miles better than the tin foil one.


Jen's feet look like they do because she's FORTY, not twenty. "Maturing" ladies have always covered their hands with gloves (Jackie O) and feet with shoes- no such thing as plastic surgery for the extremities......


Jennifer Aniston Haters are crawling out from their dumps.

Go girl, you look great.


as la nina said in project runway, "tight, shiny and short is the quickest way to look cheap."

OUT I SAY!


All of them, Brangelina plus Anniston - OUT. Gawd, I am so tired of them all. Brangelina's looking skinny, old, or tired, and Anniston's looking desperate though well exercized.


Look up "mutton dressed as lamb" in the dictionary. You will find this picture.


She looks like a baked potato.
OUT


The image on the home page caused me to say "Whatthe*uck?" within 2 seconds of viewing it. I love silver and all, and Jennifer Aniston does have a great figure, but generally, I find it inappropriate to wear aluminum foil to red carpet events. Just sayin'.

I want the shoes, though.:)

Another fun one, TLo! Your blog has truly become a habit to make the day complete. Thank God finals are over and I can step up my visits to more than once a week. Too much longer and withdrawals start!!


Anonymous 8:52, I think they have a procedure now to make hands look younger in which they inject fat into the back of the hand. Can feet be far behind? I mean, women are even having cosmetic procedures on their "lady parts" nowadays.

If I were a designer, I would want to do the alterations for any star who wanted to wear one of my designs in public. There have been some real atrocities on this blog lately that I doubt these designers want to be associated with.


It would have been better for her if she'd kept with the black in the original picture...the silver looks like aluminum foil, especially with the slightly crinkled fabric.


OUT.

In general, I don't like the push up bra treatment on dresses. The red carpet dress looks unfinished or crushed, that treatment does not work well on the fabric of the red carpet dress.

I do like her hair which can look straggly at times.


She looks like an "alfajor"

I dont' know if there's any in the States but they look a lot like Jen in this dress.

Here in Argentina, the alfajores are a MUST if you like sweets.


potty mouth princess

I saw this one over the weekend and KNEW you bitches would cover it. Hell, I almost emailed you myself when I viewed this monstrosity.

BIG, FAT OUT!!!!!!!!!

Jealous of the bod though. I hate naturally skinny bitches because I'm not one.


My first reaction to that dress? Wasn't that the waitress who asked me if I wanted a drink the last time I was playing blackjack?


i'm not dorothy gale

Talk about headlights! Out, ugly, and all the pedis on earth won't help old stressed feet in high heels. Time for a change up, Jennifer.


I love the top half on her, and I think if the skirt had been a bit looser (like on the runway), and perhaps a squidge longer she would have been majorly in (minus the too small looking shoes)... plus you gotta give her credit for not wearing black. It's all she ever seems to wear.


Just checked the tags for Jennifer Aniston after your most recent entry, and this entry popped up. Kind of funny, bc I just read People's best dressed celeb's list and J.A. popped up and with this dress on. I hate this dress.


I think that the original prada version looked very classy, but the version that Jennifer Aniston wore was just sort of hooker-ish.
Outtt


Jen Aniston at her best - in a MAXI. And by maxi I mean maximum skin. This is not a dress, this was made out of tinfoil. It's short, it's desperate, her whole look cries expensive ho.
