Does Jennifer Aniston have the power to bring back gauchos & fuzzy berets?

Here are some new photos of Jennifer AnistOMG is she wearing gauchos?! Good lord. Is the power of the Aniston strong enough to bring back gauchos?! Just watch… I bet you $10 that everyone will be wearing gauchos in a month. Wait for it. Anyway, yes, Jennifer was in Stamford, Connecticut yesterday, filming outdoors. She’s doing that Elmore Leonard film adaptation, the movie that basically sounds like a remake of Ruthless People (for those of us who adore the divine Bette Midler).

And yes, Jennifer IS wearing a wig. Every legit media outlet getting “tips” from Jennifer’s publicist has included details about how she’s wearing a wig. From a distance, it’s a decent wig. Sometimes movie-wiglets look like dead cats. This one looks somewhat natural, although I don’t think the shade of blonde really suits Jennifer. I always want her to go for darker hair though. Darker hair would make her look younger, I think, while the blonder she goes, the more she looks like a rough-and-tumble Real Housewife. Maybe that’s the right “look” for the character though.

In other Jennifer news, she’s signing on to another ensemble comedy, this one called She’s Funny That Way. Here’s more:

What is it about Berlin and Jennifer Aniston? This is the third project being sold here at the EFM that involves the actress (the other two are Convention and an untitled Elmore Leonard project that’s currently shooting.) Red Granite International is handling international sales on She’s Funny That Way which also stars Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, Cybil Shepherd, Eugene Levy, Kathryn Hahn and Brie Larson. Peter Bogdanovich is directing from a screenplay he wrote with Louise Stratten. Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach are producing.

The film centers on a married Broadway director (Wilson) who falls for a prostitute-turned-actress and works to help her advance her career. Aniston will play a therapist whose mother is in rehab for alcoholism. Principal photography is set to start in June in New York City. Aniston is repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

[From Deadline]

My heart stopped for a second when I read the line “falls for a prostitute-turned-actress and works to help her advance her career.” Because I thought THAT was the role going to Jennifer. Thank God she’s not playing a hooker/actress. Maybe that will be Brie Larson’s role? Or maybe they’ll just get Lindsay Lohan.

PS… She’s going to bring back fuzzy berets too!!!

    I want that entire outfit.

  2. Cherry says:

    Sorry, but what ARE gauchos? I tried to google it and all I got was pictures of south american (?) dudes on horses…

  3. Dawn says:

    I like those pants a ton better than I like skinny jeans. And gotta say I love her hair. That’s all I have!

    • Chickie Baby says:

      I’m kinda with you on this one—her hair looks good in these shots. Better than it normally does, anyway. The stick-straight super long mop she usually has just makes her look old and like one of the Housewives. (i.e. it’s NOT flattering!)

      I also want the entire outfit, too!

  4. snark says:

    Nooooo to the gauchos and the blonde-blonde hair. I don’t care who you are, gauchos are the fugliest thing you can wear. And that hair puts about 10 years on her looks.

  5. Lily25 says:

    Except for her hair 15 years ago, Jennifer isn’t a fashion icon. I don’t recall her starting any trends so I doubt she will now. Also a lot of people are already wearing berets. I hope she doesn’t get credit for that.

    • emmie_a says:

      That’s my thought. She has ZERO fashion power.

      It is a nice change though to see her out of her usual uniform/style. She usually dresses the same way in her films that she dresses in real life. I roll my eyes when I see her name on best dressed lists bc her style is completely boring and predictable.

  6. Hannah says:

    So she’s going to be in some decent movies. Nice change.

  7. epiphany says:

    1) I said last week it was a wig – this woman had the same lunch every day for 10 years; this is not the woman you turn to for freewheeling spontaniety.
    2) Aniston doesn’t have the power to bring somebody back a bagel, let alone revive fashions styles from the past.
    3) What, for the love of Botox, is she doing to her face?!?!!? Her nasal and cheek area are so puffy, her nose acually looks smaller – and that ain’t easy! She looks like a pie with hair on it!

  8. mystified says:

    The pants need to be a few inches shorter and a bit wider to be true gauchos. They don’t flatter her. They make her thighs look big.

    She does look suddenly much older but still pretty. Don’t know what it is: the clothes, the Cabo -wrinkled neck, the hair or the makeup but she looks like she’s aged a dozen years since the last posting.

    But at least shes not overly tweaked so she doesn’t look as old as Courtney. Cox.

  9. Janet says:

    Unless you have very long legs, gauchos are a no-no. They make your legs look short and stumpy.

    • lisa2 says:

      ITAWY.. I know she is not very tall so to me this outfit make her look very short. And I thing gauchoes look great on taller woman. Just like Capri pants. Look super stylish on a longer leg then a shorter one.

      Outside her films I never see her in regular pants. Maybe a black pair but nothing else. Just the skinny jeans. Something she and Justin have in common.

  10. gee says:

    Love the blonde hair and the beret.

  11. Nev says:

    She’s a trendsetter in a way so yes. I like her and Owen Wilson together too!

  12. Isa says:

    She looks so different. Her face is puffy and weird.
    I remember gauchos being big in 2005-2006. I thought they were ugly then and they’re ugly now.

  13. spinner says:

    Love that jacket & beret. She looks really good with the blond hair as well. Not crazy about the gauchos. It takes a certain body type to pull those off. Interesting that Cybil S. is in this movie — she is a very good actress. I love Jen & Owen together, so I will be seeing this.

  14. G says:

    If she’s going to do a period look, COMMIT to something interesting. She doesn’t look any different to me.

    Owen Wilson? Zero heat between those two. In fact, I’m hard pressed to name a role where she did have any chemistry, besides Friends? She isn’t strong enough to lead a film. Ensemble- she’s fine.

    EDIT: Oh I re-read that. She’s not the love interest in the Wilson movie.

  15. Lolly says:

    Is Louise Stratten in any way related to Dorothy Stratten? Seems like too much of a coincidence that she’ll be working with Peter Bogdanovich.

    • Katherine says:

      Yes. Peter’s seemingly unhealthy obsession with his long dead lover continues. Sad.

      Jennifer looks awful. Bad hair color and I don’t know what is going on with her face. Obviously fillers yet her lower face looks doughy. Something odd with her neck and eyes as well.

      Sorry for those who think she looks her age but 43 or 44 is not old and many, many women look naturally much younger without expensive “help.” She looks like a woman in her 50s with too much make-up.

      Those pants make her thighs look bigger because they are bigger unless she has padding – which I doubt.

  16. truthSF says:

    As long as she does ensemble, and isn’t a lead actress, she can continue to be successful in movies.

  17. Chell says:

    I am embarassed to admit I love this outfit! And I think she looks good as a blonde, however I totally agree that she appears to be messing with her face too much.
    My feelings on Aniston are neutral, don’t love her, don’t hate her…but it seems like she is againg fast or is it just me? I suppose the booze & sun are catching up with her, lol!

  18. T.Fanty says:

    If she wants to bring back berets, I am
    TOTALLY on board. Surely I can’t be the only one who feels that way?

    ETA: I also want someone to revive those little fuzzy bowler type hats from the late 80s. Like the ones Meg Ryan wore in When Harry Met Sally.

  19. Nicolette says:

    Gauchos need to be shorter and worn with a great pair of boots.

  20. cr says:

    I’m getting a very late 70′s/early 80′s vibe from this outfit. And the car.

    I’m getting visions of macramé and crocheted stuff now.

  21. janie says:

    Go away! Who cares! I’m sick of her.

  22. Miss Kiki says:

    JenAn continues to lull me into a mild coma.

  23. Sweet Dee says:

    She got a Wes Anderson movie, huh? I wonder if he wrote it. I guess since he’s not directing, I may be wrong, but this should be good for her. Wes Anderson movies are awesome, carried by ensemble casts and storyline and writing, but the punchline is always that the acting is intentionally monotone. She might actually be tolerable if she’s not over-acting herself into a screeching clone of all her other roles.

  24. Green_Eyes says:

    Bottom photo she looks like she could be Vickie Gunderson’s Sister (REal Housewives of Orange County). Ahh NO on the hair, hat, and those wretched gauchos! I am in The state of Kansas and can give you a list of names of women my age (4 to 6 yrs older than her), that look much younger than Aniston does here and they have never had any kind of filler or Botox (a few even w/ that shade of blonde)…so no those looks do nothing for Aniston.

    • lulu says:

      When are these HW actresses going to wake up and realize all the tinkering with their faces just ages them, it does NOT make them look younger. You can walk any mall in any town in the US and see 44 year old women that look years younger than Aniston.

  25. GoodCapon says:

    She actually looks good in that wig! Her face doesn’t look as angular as much.

  26. Cameron says:

    I don’t consider Aniston a trend setter. . I dont believe anyone ever followed her fashion style it was just that stupid hairstyle back in the 90′s. She was never a Jlo. Jlo would wear shoes and clothes back in the day and every urban teenager was wearing the same style in a matter of weeks (obviously designer imitation).

  27. k says:

    I have only liked Aniston’s hair three times:

    1. during Friends, the we-were-on-a-break breakup with Ross episode, when her hair was a layered longish reddish brown bob

    2. in the film Management, when she went brunette and her hair looked healthy

    3. in the film Horrible Bosses, when she went brunette and had (gasp) bangs

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      I don’t know about “Management,” but Aniston said she asked for a wig in “Horrible Bosses.”

    • lisa2 says:

      Ummm didn’t she wear a wig in 2 and 3.. so basically you like when she wears a wig. Which she is doing in this film. So the other people commenting how they like her hair.. are really saying they like the wig.

      nothing wrong with wearing a wig in a film. Many actresses do. It is just that she usually looks the same all the time.

      I don’t watch her films, but has she ever done a period piece where she had to wear some a period piece costume. I was thinking that most of the big named actresses have all done some period drama of some kind. But I don’t think she ever has. I find that interesting for some reason too.

  28. platynum says:

    I like the look …she is looking older,guess at a certain age a womans age begins to show.

  29. jensational says:

    But…..I like gauchos. :-/

  30. BooBooLaRue says:

    She does “cheap” so well.

  31. RHONYC says:

    looks very suburban mom-ish. ;-)

  32. Jazmin says:

    She obviously had her nose re-done or tweaked again!

    The wig adds volume to her otherwise stringy hair, which is an improvement regardless of the color.

  33. Contrived says:

    I seriously hope she still isn’t paying $500,000 a yr on her hair.

    her hair has become so brittle and dry in the last 4 or so yrs it’s not what it used to be.

    She has to wear wigs because her hair can’t take the damage from dying it.

    the blonde looks horrid and borders on looking almost greyish—further adding to her aging face.

    but, horrible bosses dark wig was equally awful—she looked cross-eyed.

    She’s always had a real problem with changing her hair style.

    she has too many weird features that need to be taken into consideration: eyes to close set, wide jawline, rodent ears, tiny mouth, potato nose(a bit better after her last rhinoplasty), now the fillers in the cheeks as well. it’s a lot to juggle.

    She can’t have her hair in and updo, she can only have it covering her face and basically in one shade.

    but, then everyone comments on how boring she is for always having the same style. It really must suck for her.

  34. KellyinSeattle says:

    No no no to gauchos!!! I won’t be participating.

  35. apsutter says:

    Gauchos? Hell no. Those need to go to fashion hell and stay there. I do like the lighter blond on her though. It’s nice to see her switch it up for once.

  36. SqualkyParrot says:

    Whenever I read posts where people rip apart someone for showing “age,” I can’t help but think its sad we’re so critical of aging when life expectancy has never been higher. We’re all going to spend the majority of our lives at our “not perkiest.”

  37. kitkerenina says:

    Ugh, gauchos.

    (Tardis travel back in time. All the popular 80′s girls get their gaucho hems caught in metal book cages under school desks. When the Doctor raises his sonic screwdriver, they all scream for fear their acrylic fuzzy sweaters will be torched.)

  38. Hipocricy says:

    Those gauchos are best on long legged lean girls. Flat shoes should be paired with it too.

    Aniston is short legged with meatier thighs…stumpy looking.

    They should have paired her pants with a shorter jacket to give the illusion that she has long legs.

  39. 2OutOfFive says:

    She looks like Teri Garr in Mr. Mom.

  40. apsutter says:

    Omg…she looks like my mom with her hair that blond!

  41. Kapowski says:

    The only thing Aniston has the power to do is bore people or annoy them.

  42. Annie says:

    You know what strikes me with this? The sheer number of Pavlovian responses that are the same every single time the name “Aniston” is mentioned. It’s kind of entertaining, kind of sad.

    Insult hair – check
    Call her old – check
    Call her fat or stumpy – check
    Nose job – check
    Only famous because of Pitt – check
    “Cute” is a no-no – check

    As to the outfit, definitely a scene taking place in the past. The Caddy in the background is also from the ’70′s. I pray to god that gaucho pants don’t come back, they were bad enough the first time. Palazzo pants were much easier for everyone to wear.

  43. Maritza says:

    Her head looks flat in that 3rd picture. I like the whole outfit.

  44. emma says:

    gaucho type pants are great for yoga- I hope it doesn’t come as a fashion.
    Fuzzy berets are cute though!

  45. ColdRock says:

    I thought they were called bell bottoms? Whatever they are they are truly ugly and do not flatter her at all. Though I do think she looks pretty with the half up/down hairclip do. She should wear her hair more like that. Only with brown hair.
