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 personally thought the same thing when I first looked at the pictures, “Wow! she kinda looks like a guy!”….But hey, when you wake up to Ben Affleck every A.M, I don’t think it matters what we think…I’ve seen her look better..

Jennifer Garner and Hilary Swank have always struck me as similar in that make the most of what they have. Not classically beautiful or even pretty, they’re actually rather plain and horse-faced, but interesting-looking. They do have strong jawlines, and that’s really the bottom line. That’s why when you see Pam Anderson with Kid Rock, you think, huh? He’s got a weak jaw, which makes him Joe Blow average. Amazing what makeup and being physically fit and confident will do for you.

You people should stop being so mean.

I think she looks cute. She’s not beautiful, she’s cute. And Ben adores her. She’s a good thing for him after that whole JLO fiasco. And their little baby is a doll!
