Jennifer Aniston in a black McQueen at Berlin premiere: cute or boring?

Seriously, how does Jennifer Aniston look so “thinned out” so quickly? I thought air travel made you puffy, but somehow Jennifer looks 10 pounds lighter in Europe. Shocking. Anyway, these are some new photos of Jennifer at last night’s Berlin premiere of We’re the Millers. It doesn’t look like Jason Sudeikis made the journey.

Jennifer stepped back into her comfort zone after the trauma of wearing that printed Christian Dior bubble dress in London. She was back to black – a little black Alexander McQueen dress. I would like to see the dress without the belt, just because I’m curious about the tailoring around the waist and I wonder if that giant wrestling championship belt is hiding a design flaw. That being said, this dress is flattering to Jennifer’s figure, much more so than the Dior. And no, I still don’t think she’s pregnant. Look at the profile body shot – the belt is just weird, but that’s not a “bump”.

As for her hair… she’s really mixing it up with her hair for the European tour. And yes, “mixing it up” for Jennifer includes “wind tunnel faux bedhead” and “pushed to the side”. Still, it’s nice to see her do at least one thing differently.

And here’s an interview that was making the rounds yesterday – Aniston being interviewed by Chris Stark, who apparently is something of a local celebrity journalist in England. He’s famous for being extremely and charmingly awkward and talking about his personal life rather than movies and such. Mila Kunis famously treated him very gently, and when it came time for Stark to interview Aniston, she gamely played along too. This is the most likeable I’ve found Aniston in a long time.

    I love the belt thingy and her hair. Atleast she’s kinda trying new looks – finally

  2. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    What is with this hair flipped to one side thing? It’s giving me K-Stew vibes. Her body looks great but that hair is a no.

  3. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    That belt makes her look like she has a fat roll when she doesn’t. I like that she’s doing something with her hair, other than the usual part, but why does it look so dry and wispy? I think they put it the way they want it, and then hairspray it into place. Not a good look.

    But her makeup’s been looking really good here, and the post from yesterday. She looks best with natural looking make up.

  4. SolitaryAngel says:

    She looks better here….but I MUST have those shoes!!!!

    And she is much too old to be playing with her hair like that.

  5. Aiobhan says:

    The shoes are the only interesting thing about that outfit. And even those are boring. She gets a B for trying though.

  6. LAK says:

    Jennifer Aniston. STEP AWAY FROM THE MCQUEEN!!!!

    Urgh, first Kate and now Aniston tainting my beloved McQueen….2 of the most bland people on the fame universe..

    If Lee could stop VB wearing His label, why can’t Sarah do the same.

    • Badirene says:

      Thanks for typing what I was thinking! Just ordered Savage Beauty and cannot wait to drool over it.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Who did he ban from wearing his stuff?

      That’s like Ambercrombie&Fitch trying to ban Mike Sorrentino from wearing their stuff. That’s sad.

      I’ve actually gotten more into fashion and jewelry (I would’ve loved to be Elizabeth Taylor’s best friend) since reading this site.

      • LAK says:

        Victoria Beckham. She was pretty furious about it at the time and vowed never to wear any of it, BUT during her LA makeover, she snuck in one of his dresses (a black/white optical illusion bodycon dress) but only after his death!!! LOL.

        He was pretty hardcore with his vision AND his customers. As much as the royal gig is prestigious, he would never have done it. He was pretty vocal about bland people and about royalty. He famously wrote rude things into Prince Charles’s suits when he was an apprentice in Saville Row.

        Since his death, it’s so hard to remain loyal because it’s so bland now, and bland people are wearing it. It’s more than annoying. We’ve gone from Daphne Guinness/Lady Gaga to Jennifer Aniston/Kate Middleton.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        From what I’ve seen of his actual designs, they’re amazing…I don’t like too much of the new stuff. It was sad to hear that he died/committed suicide. I always thought he was really hot too…I only saw one pic of him–it was with SJP and he was in a kilt.

      • MonkeyTowz says:

        @LAK, Agree with everything you said. I usually don’t get too invested in a celeb’s death, but McQueen’s suicide still makes me sad. Esp. when I see pics of his designs pre/post his death. He was such unique figure imo.
        Jen looks alright. I’m ashamed to admit I kind of liked that floral thing she wore to the other premier. See what not having Alexander McQueen in this world has done to me? Smdh

      • LAK says:

        @MonkeyTowz – LOL. I feel like I am cheating on a much loved SO when I like other designers’ clothing. Except Mui Mui shoes. My love of a Mui Mui shoe is almost as bottomless as my love of McQueen.

        Still sad about his death. And Isabella Blow’s death. The depth of creativity between the two of them was so amazing. I really feel that they were geniuses.

      • MonkeyTowz says:

        Isabella Blow’s death bothered me too. I’m from the South & reading about designers like them blew (no pun intended) my mind…recently found a MiuMiu purse from an old boyfriend. It’s such a work of art that I decided to display it in my living room.

  7. Kiddo says:

    She looks good. The dress, however, is either ill-fitted at the hips or those rumples that were designed into it aren’t the most flattering detail. Otherwise, quite nice. She has a beautiful figure still.

  8. Amelia says:

    Oh Chris. Only he would mention a visit to a strip club in Prague with his mates during an interview :)

  9. Jennifer12 says:

    I don’t love pleats, but this dress/belt really works on her. It looks great. Her hair still looks awful.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      +1. Not seeing the “fat rolls” that everyone is screaming about. Dress looks awesome but the hair is stupid.

      • Kiddo says:

        I think it is a design in the dress, which was probably intended for a model who wears clothing like a hanger, with no hips. I’d add further that Aniston does not have huge hips or fat rolls.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’m talking about the space between her boobs and the belt. I’m not saying she has a fat roll, but that that belt is ugly and wrong w/the dress, and makes it look like she has one. And at her hips, it’s awful to. She should’ve gotten rid of the belt. Then she would’ve looked great.

      • LAK says:

        Kiddo – I have this dress. And I am curvy (African bottom and hips!). It fits like a dream without the belt. One thing you can never fault McQueen is their tailoring no matter your shape.

        @Vigilia Coriolanus makes a very good observation about how the belt sits on Jennifer. It’s a waisty belt ie more than a belt, but not quite a corset. And both ends of it flare out. If Jennifer had a defined waist per someone with a curvy figure, this belt would look amazing. Salma Hayek has been known to use a waisty belt and it always looks amazing on her.

        With Jennifer, the short gap between the flare of the belt and her boobs implies a fat roll. Perhaps if the belt was sitting higher for an empire waist effect or lower, closer to her hips thus having a longer space between her boobs and the belt.

        When it’s shown on the McQueen catwalk/lookbook, it’s styled in a way that emphasises it’s corset abilities.

      • Kiddo says:

        @LAK, Ah, thanks for the clarification. So it would be much better without the belt. It’s settled.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Fat rolls? Are people insane?? And I am apparently in the minority but I think this belt works nicely. It accentuates her slim waist and hips, and adds a severe note to the flouncy skirt, which it needs. JMO Hair still terrible.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Okay, went back up. From the side, the belt doesn’t look great, but from the front I like it. And I’m not a huge pump fan, but those are just beautiful. Very sleek.

      • Keats says:

        @LAK: pretty please may I closet raid? I just want 5 minutes, then I’ll put that dress back exactly where I found it.

  10. Penny says:

    Ok, do my eyes deceive me or is there a muffin top situation underway?

    Btw, that is the hottest MT to boot;)

  11. melma says:

    She looks great (for her)… Even her face. Color me shocked.

  12. Lukie says:

    Different shoes? Covered toes? Did this chick hire a stylist?

  13. doofus says:

    much better than the floral thing, but don’t like the “belt” thing. It overtakes the dress. I get that it’s supposed to make a LBD stand out, but it’s wrong.

    hair looks better than yesterday, too. loose, but not TOO messy (like yesterday’s pics).

    and HER LEGS. DAMN, they look good.

  14. Amory says:

    I kinda like the dress but it doesn’t fit well – it’s too tight across the hips and the belt looks like it’s too low. But the overall effect is pretty decent.

    No, no, no on the hair. It looks cheap and unhealthy.

  15. Sisi says:

    an slightly thinner obi-like belt made of fabric would have looked nicer. This just looks like something you could buy in a toystore.

  16. Moec23 says:

    I really love this dress! It’s figure flattering, hits her on the leg in the perfect place to show her legs off. It’s simple but I like it :) I wear a lot of black ( gotta hide the weight from baby) and would love to rock that dress if I could fit in it lol

  17. micha says:

    that guy is too cute!

    also, she doesn’t know what an anagram is? …

  18. smee says:

    Sorry to sound so conservative, but she needs to quit dressing so “young”. Her body looks great, but she should quit going for the ingenue look. The mini-skirt and the side-swept hair are very Selena Gomez to me.

    Cate Blanchett is the same age and is always dressed in an age-appropriate fashion. She wears clothing that accentuates her figure yet in a classy, fashion-forward way.

    Just a suggestion :)

  19. lenje says:

    I enjoy the interview. Highlight is the question about Will Poulter and his organ “Is that the real thing?”. JA: “It is. He’s a method actor.” :)

    • JamTeezy says:

      It’s little things like this that show you why she’s had such a long-running career. She’s really likeable, and has a lot of friends among the Hollywood set. She’ll be around for a long time in whatever capacity.
      I hope she does wear his jersey!

  20. Dani says:

    Dont like her in the video at all!!! She looks old, and her no-lips reminded me of Celine Dion’s!

  21. Nicole says:

    This is the best I’ve seen her with clothes on. Seriously. She looks amazing.

  22. mimi says:

    I like this dress a lot! I like that she seems to be experimenting with her hair lately. She does have great hair and a cute figure. I usually always like her red carpet choices and her recent picks haven’t disappointed me so far. She and her stylist seem to know what works well with her small, fit frame. She does have great legs for short dresses.

  23. Hank Jr! says:

    Say what you will about her acting abilities, but girl got a nice, healthy body. I really want to go see her new movie- for the boy who plays their fake son. He seemed hilarious in the previews!

  24. AllyUK says:

    Aww…love that interview, he’s so sweet and she was a good sport playing along.

    I think the black dress/belt combo is one her best looks in recent times.

  25. MaryBeth says:

    She looks FABULOUS! Love the heels!!!!

  26. ClaireB says:

    Like many many outfits of many many other stars, it’s cute and boring.

  27. Veronica says:

    I actually love the dress! I know she always wears solids and God knows if I had the chance to have a team of makeup and stylists I’d def wanna experiment, but the dress is super adorable.

  28. d says:

    I think the outfit is cute and she looks toned and in proportion. maybe a diff belt would look better though. I don’t like her hair though I think it looks silly. it too bad age doesn’t like a nice Updo or polished pony. I like her when her hair is more of a chestnut color and medium length.

  29. Anna Scott says:

    I think she looks great. I like her hair like this and the dress is cute. She always comes across as very positive and easy going person.

  30. lucy2 says:

    I like this look a lot. Not sure about the hair, but it’s different.

  31. Sandy says:

    So much better than the ugly curtains she was wearing yesterday

  32. Ginger says:

    I think she looks great here. I’m not a fan of the weird belt either but the whole dress shows off her great figure. She’s the same age as me and her body is amazing…makes me want to hit the gym, sigh. I really do like that she’s doing something different with her hair but still wish she’d go with a darker shade.

  33. Green Eyes says:

    The fitting of the dress is off (not just due yo belt). We all know Jen is fit.. So rumpels & lumps are ill fitting dress). Don’t like the belt or hair either.. Not a good look. But love those shoes:)!

  34. JillyRo says:

    I like the dress (not the belt so much). But seems like something Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence or Amanda Seyfried would wear though. She has GREAT legs, but her fashion choices lately are too young for mid-40s. Not liking the hair. Now starting to see why she wears it the same way all the time LOL!!! Cuz dang, she has REALLY HUGE ears doesn’t she, maybe she covers them usually.

    But mostly I HATE HATE her voice. So mannish and her lips are so stiff and barely move when she talks, used to drive me nuts no Friends too (Rachel really was all of Jennifer’s characterics I think and did not require her to act much I’m now thinking).

  35. Sandy says:

    She has a great body for 44, but yesterday she had on Cindy Brady’s dress and today she has on Kristen Stewart or Jennifer Lawrence dress, she isn’t dressed appropriately for her age.

  36. kibbles says:

    Again, this is the best she’s looked in a very long time. Damn, I’m actually starting to like her a tiny bit. She looked amazeballs in the Christian Dior bubble dress. Loved her hair in that outfit and love her hair here. Love that her hair is swept to the side and a bit messy. Hate the bone straight hair parted in the middle. It rarely looks good on anyone. I agree that she looks less bloated during her European tour. She must be on a stricter diet right now. The interview with Stark was good too. She’s on the right track. Wish she would get rid of Chelsea Handler as a friend and get back with Courtney Cox. It would really help in fixing her image.

    • Nikita says:

      Well i guess she knows that, thats why you wont see them together anytime soon. Justins birthday, no Chelsea and i think JA will hide her friendship with her because she rubs her fans the wrong way and could really damage her good girl image, which allready did happen. If you go to US Weekly, the comments where always positive for her for years, but this is changing, not only on US, its changing everywhere. People are very annoyed with the daily media attention she gets and her supporters/fans cant understand their friendship, how could their best friend got together with such a mean woman like Chelsea, even if you hate angelina, she didnt helped JA with talking about AJ and her innocent children?? JA i like the Kardashian of Hollywood. She doenst have much succsess but she compensates it with attention. She goes on the red carpet and gets the same attention like Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock but in reality shes far far away from their carrers.

    • Tara says:

      Agree on all points. I wonder if she changed stylists.

  37. Nikita says:

    First time ever i absolutely like the dress and the shoes, the hair is ok.Shes looks younger when she dresses like that.
    Well in europe she trys to be more fashinable because well, europe is more fasionable then the USA ha ;-) just kidding
    Greetings from Europe to the lovely CelebitchyLadys :-D have a nice weekend, cheers

  38. Lola says:

    She’s gorgeous. Nothing bad to say about her. Wish I looked like that when I stand in front of a mirror.

  39. taxi says:

    Cute dress, awful belt. Looking at it gives me a stomach ache because all I can think of is how miserable it must be to sit in that thing.

  40. I Choose Me says:

    I really like the outfit and I love the shoes. Not keen on the hair but it is something different for a change.

    Re: the video. The interview was cute. I don’t think the interviewer is that charming and I forsee his shtick getting old very quickly but he is cute and relatively inoffensive. Is it me or did Jennifer not know what a tarmac or an anagram was? She looked so confused.

  41. Asdfg says:

    Baby steps… Baby steps…

    I actually really like this dress.

  42. BooBooLaRue says:

    Getting Barbarella vibes.

  43. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    I’m surprised the passing of Lisa Robin Kelly has not been on here – she was a good actress and it was sad that she passed away in recovery, similar to Cory Monteith. So these circumstances could change the way rehab is done since going cold turkey can be dangerous.

  44. Tara says:

    Cute. I don’t know who I am anymore.

  45. Joney Says says:

    I think she looks awful! She’s trying way too hard. She seems not to know that she is 44 and not 24.Did she raid Kristen Stewart or Jennifer Lawrence closet? She looks ridiculous with this WWF belt. She’s up to her old tricks fanning the preggo rumor flames. I can’t with her Donald Trump fried comb over hair

    • LaurieH says:

      Granted, the hair does not look good swept over like tha, but it doesn’t look fried. The belt is a little Grace Jones and overpowers the outfit – but the outfit is otherwide age appropriate. I assume (perhaps incorrectly) that you are a young person? She is 44, not 64. Trust me on this one: the 40′s and 50′s are THE hardest period in a woman’s life to find clothes, particularly if you din’t have children and, therefore, have no need to dress in functional, practical and comfortable “mommy” clothes. Clothes are either too young and sexy or too old and frumpy. The shape of your body will have everything to do with it. Some women her age are blessed with bodies of 20 and 30 year olds. Others have bodies that reflect years of sefless child-rearing and the stresses of life. Please don’t judge. It’s hard. At this age, you still feel young inside and you’re grappling with the reality that you don’t look that way kn the outside. For me (at age 49), I go for classic silhouettes and jazz them up with insanely fabulous accessories (bags, shoes, jewelry, scarves, hats, etc….). Cut her some slack. If you aren’t here age yet, God willing you will be.

  46. Kath says:

    I don’t get the hate for this woman. I’ve never heard of her being anything but a perfectly nice person.

    And no, that is not an invitation for someone to ‘set me straight’.

  47. xploxite says:

    she looks like 18 years old i really like to know her secret for staying young.

  48. God Speed says:

    Totally cute! Well truth hot as always… Man its been years since friends and she looks the same .. People just hate…

  49. LaurieH says:

    This is a vast improvement over the Forever 21 floral dress she was wearing the other day.

  50. lovegossip says:

    I use to like her but she has started to really bug me lately. I do like her hair like this tho. It seems to change her face and hide her chin. Or maybe it is the area between her nose and mouth? Lol Either way, it hides the face flaw. Haha. I think she looks better here. :-)

  51. judyjudyjudy says:

    love everything about it; Burton gets it right for a change. Mostly hate her stuff.

  52. Isa says:

    Her face isn’t puffy anymore and that’s good. Looks much better. Her shoes are awesome.

  53. Jade says:

    She looks good. She may not be classically beautiful but she’s attractive. I know it doesn’t make sense to some people *shrugs.

  54. homegrrl says:

    It’s the “see i’m not pregnant” belt

  55. Dopey says:

    Maybe she wants to be the next WWE Diva?
