Jennifer Love Hewitt in white Monique Lhuillier: simple & pretty, or too bridal?


These are photos of Jennifer Love Hewitt at this weekend’s Angel Awards in LA. The awards are for supporters of Project Angel Food. The dress is Monique Lhuillier Resort 2009 – which is interesting that J.Love isn’t wearing a new dress from some new collection. She probably recycled this look from a previous red carpet, or maybe she never got around to wearing it in 2009. In any case, I actually like the dress. She looks pretty in white, and I like the simplicity of the cut, and I even like the gold detailing, which isn’t overdone.

So what do I dislike? Her hair. Granted, I was never going to like bangs on J.Love, and yes, this version of bangs is less offensive than the other, flat-ironed style she was working last week. But this wavy, mom-bangs style looks dated, and it ages her. She has a young-looking face – why is she trying to look ten years older?

In case you were still wondering, J.Love is still single. She told Ryan Seacrest last week, “I have nothing to say except I’m totally single.” This is what happens when she’s single – she goes out to any red carpet that will have her, and she calls the paps for “candid” photo shoots every damn day. I’m not saying that J.Love or ANY woman needs a boyfriend just to have a boyfriend. I am saying that if you want to avoid the daily photos of J.Love, she needs a man.

PS… Yes, J. Love is hugging on Pauley Perrette from NCIS. I adore Pauley.

    So glad you did a post on this. Despite what seems like constant protests against and dislike for her, I really like JLH. She looks really nice and in my opinion if this was longer it could totally be rocked as a traditional-type wedding gown. For some reason though, I’ve thought the haircut aged her. She looks like she’s a married mother of at least 2. But she looks happy and if that’s real, I’m happy for her.

    I saw her in this dress in a Daily Mail article and wondered if perhaps she was going to the Kardashian-Humphries affair. I was curious as to how Will and Jada and Victoria and Becks could have possibly been attending but there was no mention of JLH or Jessica Simpson-you’d think the single ladies in the same boat would want to support each other and rejoice over each other’s supposed success.

    Anyway, now I know why she was all dolled up. So THAT’s why none of the major celebrities showed up, they were here at this event! ;)

    Aww. I love Pauley. It’s hard to believe she’s 42.

    JLove looks good. Those must be her favorite pair of shoes, because every red carpet appearance she’s wearing them.

  3. cmc says:

    I actually think she looks beautiful and the whole outfit works- the jewlery, shoes, purse, dress, all of it. And yeah- the hair is much less bad with waves. AND I like her nails. Good show, J.Love.

  4. Dorothy#1 says:

    Beautiful!!! I still miss Ghost Whisperer. :(

  5. Kaboom says:

    That dress actually works for once.

  6. bagladey says:

    JLH is 42??? I can’t believe it. It’s a lovely dress and JLH looks good in it.

  7. Jayna says:

    I never think she’s all that in photos. But in an interview on The Talk she was adorable and so cute, so I changed my mind about her. And on that tv movie recently on Lifetime where she played a broke wife turned hooker/massage therapist she was really very, very pretty and a really good little actress.

    I like her in this dress, very classic and flattering.

  8. bite me says: is what 32 or 33

  9. Quest says:

    Oh thank goodness JLH is back and looking gorgeous…had a little scare a while back on her fashion choices, but excellent recovery…she looks absolutely fantastic here

  10. Franny says:

    I think she looks great. Except those gold stripper shoes she wears all the time. And I find it strange that she us wearing what looks like a marriage ring on her left hand. But I do really like her love ring and want to know where she got it

  11. Cherry Rose says:

    Jennifer Love Hewitt is 32, I think.

    Pauley, the girl Jennifer is posing with (who plays Abby on NCIS), is 42. She looks freaking great for someone that’s 42. She could pass for 35.

  12. DogBoy says:

    JLH looks great (again).
    I just noticed she has a larger than average nose– good for her for not hacking it off like 99% of her Hollywood counterparts would have.

  13. Goofpuff says:

    Pauley is 42??! Wow she looks amazing for 42. I would have guessed much younger.

  14. Katalina says:

    I can’t believe you say nothing about the HORRENDOUS bangs trauma that is Pauley!! I love her too, but c’mon! If there was a dictionary entry for the phrase “bangs trauma” it would have Pauley’s pic next to it.

  15. Viv says:

    cute dress. terrible terrible handbag.

  16. gee says:

    She looks fantastic. I love love love that dress! And I love Pauly Perette too.

  17. Jackson says:

    She looks great. Nice hair, nice makeup, nice dress. Not bridal at all. I’m happy to see her put it all together.

  18. Dana says:

    I can’t stand most celebs that constantly call the paps, but I really like her. And she looks fantastic here, that dress is very flattering on here.

  19. says:

    The dress is really nice and flatters her figure. But girlfriend needs to go shoe shopping. It seems she owns only 2 pairs for shoes: these ugly copper heels she wear at ever red carpet event and those atrocious laceless black leather converse.

  20. pitd says:

    I think this is the best she’s looked in a while!

  21. locamochagirl says:

    She looks great.

  22. dr.bombay says:

    Love the dress & the shoes.

  23. Katherine says:

    JLH looks very nice. And, yes, you CAN wear white outside of weddings. White dresses are a staple of summer days.

  24. Truthful says:

    she looks good to me

  25. really says:

    She actually looks lovely!

  26. Kara says:

    I love Pauley! She said once that she saves money all year for a birthday fund and then on her birthday she gives it to a total stranger in need. That’s the coolest thing! She has a lifetime pass from me (even for the affected bangs thing)!

  27. sandy#1 says:

    i like this dress, she looks nice in it.

  28. ladybert62 says:

    Very nice – simple and elegant – dress. She looks lovely in it. Hair looks good too.

  29. Ashley says:

    I liked her with the longer hair and full-on fluffy fringe bangs. But, unlike Kaiser, I tend to really like bangs (not on Olivia Wilde though…those are tragic).

    It’s nice to see her wear a strapless dress because it draws the eye up. Although I agree that she needs to retire the gold shoes that look like something out of a Baby Phat collection. And the purse is wrong too.

  30. Amanda G says:

    She looks beautiful.

  31. R Vaughan says:

    I LOVE seeing those candids of a VERY
    SINGLE Jennifer Love Hewitt!

    FYI,for those who don’t know: JLH co-starred (in 1999) with Pauley Perrette in a short-lived TV show, “Time of Your Life”. Guess they hadn’t seen each other in over a decade!

  32. jay says:

    I’m sure Pauley also keeps her hair that way for her character on NCIS. Though I’m also sure she would have found some way to change it by now if she didn’t like it.

  33. SEF says:

    Props to JLH for looking all-natural. That’s her own nose, her own teeth, she hasn’t gone blonde, the makeup’s not crazy.

    It’s almost unheard of in Hollywood. Good for her.

  34. bogie says:

    Thanks guys. A lot of sweet comments. Negativity is so old. Loved Hewitt since junior high. I am in my late twenties now. She is been in the game for ages and looks great.

  35. jemshoes says:

    Jennifer looks lovely – so crisp and clean and uncluttered. I love unfussy frocks!
