Jennifer Garner made her triumphant return to the red carpet last night for the premiere of The Odd Life of Timothy Green. At first I thought this might be her first red carpet appearance since having her son, Samuel, in late February, but that’s not correct. She made an equally lovely appearance at Cinemacon back in April.
Our friends at Red Carpet Fashion Awards point out that Garner’s gorgeous red draped dress is Lanvin, and that it retails for $2,425. I own a similar red draped dress that gathers at the waist instead of the side, but I got it at TJ Maxx and it cost about $40 I think. (I just spent way too long googling it and getting lost in some great fashion blogs. I’m away from home or would just look at the label. Here’s a dress from Elie Tahari that’s a little more fitted and expensive, but still somewhat affordable.)
I’m not a fan of Garner’s shoes, which are dressy enough but seem to be a little plain and “safe” for this look. Still, that’s a minor complaint and I like how she matched her accessories to the sequins on her shoes. They coordinate without being overkill.
I love her slightly messy updo and elegant, subtle makeup. She could have gone with a red lip to match her dress, but either she or her makeup artist smartly chose a blush shade. She looks great!
The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a Disney movie about a childless couple who become instant parents to a magical kid who grows overnight in their garden. The trailer makes it seem very schmaltzy and predictable, but at least it’s a film you can take the whole family to. We need more of those. It’s out August 15th and co-stars Joel Edgerton, who’s shown here with Garner. He’s arguably hot, but he isn’t doing it for me with that hair. Here’s the trailer.
