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?

she looks a bit like a man,in both pictures.

I think she looks very beautiful (not the most flattering photo of her face, but still better than a lot you see out there).

I have to say that the tossed hair doesn’t look that great on her. I love the purple dress and her shoes are fabulous. Who knew she has such sexy legs? I don’t think the actual picture helps her much. Here she looks like she’s saying “Okay, so what do you think? I’m a hot mom right?”

She looks fantastic! Hot Mama!

she does look like a man I though the VERY same thing!

If she was going for glamourous, she forgot the make-up … from the neck down, however, she looks great PLUS she doesn’t look like she can be had for a buck fifty and a tootsie roll. PAY ATTENTION, BRITTANY … you might accidentally learn something about how a mommy can play dress-up without looking like the “psst … meet me in the alley” type.

She looks like a man?? Um . . . I think she looks absolutely fabulous!

All I can think about is how Sydney Bristow would kick some butt in that cool purple dress and give a good roundhouse punch…hee-hee……I wonder if the color choice has anything connection to her little Violet!? Jennifer Garner has always seemed to be more real than most Hollywood Celebs. I hope she stays that way.
Cheers and “you go girl!”

I can see how some people might say that her facial expression is not her best…but how can anyone say she looks like a man?!?! She looks great!

I agree with Brenda, Jen looks all around amazing in this picture those of you who say she looks like a man, I don’t see it at all….
