Jennifer Aniston wore black leather Brandon Maxwell to ‘The Leftovers’ premiere

Premiere of HBO's 'The Leftovers' Season 3 - Arrivals

People are always complaining about how Jennifer Aniston never really changes up her style, so these photos are evidence that… maybe she does change it up SLIGHTLY sometimes. Granted, she’s still wearing a little black dress, and her hair is down and she still loves strappy heels. But I do feel like she’s changed it up a bit. These are photos from last night’s Hollywood premiere event for the The Leftovers Season 3, the final season of the HBO show. Everyone involved with the show is ready to move on, and if you’re a fan of the show… my only hope for you is that I hope you feel satisfied with the conclusion of the series, because writer Damon Lindelof is notorious for sh-tting the bed.

Anyway, Justin Theroux is probably looking forward to the end of the series too – it’s prestige television, obviously, but I’m not sure that The Leftovers was really the career stepping-stone he thought it would be. But his wife came out to support him and all is well. Jennifer’s dress here in Brandon Maxwell and… I’ll say it, doesn’t it seem like something that Angelina Jolie would wear? It’s black leather!! Ha. No, Jolie doesn’t OWN “black leather dresses,” but I’m still a little bit surprised to see Jennifer attempting a darker look like this. Am I crazy or is Jennifer’s hair a few shades darker too? Is it just the lighting or is she less sunny-blonde? And her makeup is crazy-dark too. It almost looks like her cheeks are bruised, she’s wearing such heavy rouge.

PS… I love the pockets on this Maxwell dress.

    She looks gooood

  2. MunichGirl says:

    What has she done to her face? Looks weird.

    • doofus says:

      I was going to say, she looks “refreshed”. like, to me, her eyes seem to POP a little more. eye lift of some sort?

      and as for the black leather, I feel like she’s worn a dress VERY SIMILAR to this before.

      in any case, I think she looks great. I love the shoes.

    • Sullivan says:

      She bought a new one.

    • Kitten says:

      I think she just gained weight?

      • Nancy says:

        She looks good though. I always dread her threads since people either rip her to shreds or say how good she looks. Mean girls

      • Dolly says:

        Yes Nancy. It crazy to me how many threads I avoid because, its either negative, hatred or idolization.

        Plus, I’ve noticed that once someone is disliked around here, we start to get spammed with a bunch of stories about them.

      • sarah says:

        Totally agree. Her cheeks look fuller which makes her face look supposedly “weird”, but i’m thinking it’s just the weight. She looks great.

      • doofus says:

        someone else mentioned that below and, after taking a second, longer look, I think you’re both right.

        she even has a (OMG SHOCKER!) little belly, if I’m not mistaken. like a lot of celebs, when you’re happy, and not monitoring your diet/weight for a role, you gain a little.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah I just wanted to clarify that I think she looks great. Realized afterwards that pointing out that she gained a couple lbs could be seen as a criticism but those few lbs look fantastic on her.

      • Esmom says:

        I was going to say she looks buffer and fitter to me. I don’t see a belly, just a very fitted dress and normal curves. Whatever she’s doing, it’s working. She looks great and I can’t wait to see the new season of the show!!

    • Ambrosia says:

      I was wondering the same thing. Her face looks different but I can’t place exactly what she’s had done.

    • Wellsie says:

      I’m gonna hop on board here and say she looks different, but great. If I could get some rejuve and eat what I wanted to gain ten pounds to look like this you’d have to peel me off the ceiling.

  3. Patricia says:

    Her face looks like a totally different shape to me.
    She is so boring, good thing I have my coffee here with me because viewing her little black dress, hair down and strappy sandals yet again is putting me to sleep. The fact that the dress is leather is not anything exciting after years of the same exact thing.

    I will say, it’s nice to see her and her husband looking happy. That’s always a good thing.

    • Guest says:

      Yep, I wanted to say the same thing about her face shape.

    • ncboudicca says:

      It think it’s her chin…she’s done something.

    • Dani says:

      If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This is her style and she kills it every time. I had 800 variations of the same black dress because it looks good on me and I feel good in it. It might not be for everyone but she doesn’t looking boring or bad.

    • holly2905 says:

      That’s happy?!? He looks like he’s 3/4 stoned and would rather be anywhere or with anyone else.

    • norah says:

      she looks fat – and for that type of dress it just shows – her face is orangey and weird again.

      • ann says:

        I liked her in friends but not on the big screen. People are getting sick of her tabloid b.s. and her acting is mediocre IMO. I think she knows her star is fading, so the last couple of years, she has been wearing dresses that are slit too high, or too low or both. Going without a bra in this one just screams “Look At Meeee!!!
        I’m still sexy, and Hire Me.

      • doofus says:

        um, OK?…fat, really? if this is considered fat, it’s no wonder there are so many young women with eating disorders. Sure, you’re entitled to your opinion, but it seems so far off that I have to wonder if your opinion isn’t shadowed by something else.

        as for wearing a bra, how would she wear one with this dress? yes, I know strapless exist, but this dress is “sprayed on” and any line of a bra would be VERY noticeable and look terrible. it’s also cut so low in her armpit that it would likely show there, too. I’m all for wearing support (and I have to due to size so I’d NEVER wear this) but with a dress like this, I just don’t think she can.

      • Wellsie says:

        Oh Norah. Fat? Really? Why be like that.

      • Butterscotch says:

        Lol knew the detractors would be out in full force
        Sad. …

      • Amanda says:

        Why so bitter boo?lol

  4. Luca76 says:

    Looks good but I suspect she did something to her face hence the hair/makeup change. That trick always works for her.

  5. Mikasa says:

    I don’t know what it is but I just can’t warm up to her.

  6. MostlyMegan says:

    She looks amazing. I think she has put on 5 pounds, and there is more weight in her face, and it really suit her face and figure.

    • MsGoblin says:

      Agreed. It’s amazing what a measly 5 pounds can do to change a look. She looks more robust and alive these days – as if she is enjoying herself more.

    • Stella says:

      I don’t like the dress (would be prettier as a fabric instead, I think) but agree she looks good. A few pounds extra suits her.

  7. atorontogal says:

    Why is she a thing, please help me understand. She doesn’t even have the looks to carry her non talent. Simply because one is born in Hollywood to actors, does not mean they themselves can act.

    • Guest says:

      Good question, IMO, she’s a terrible actress but this whole Jolie-Pitt-Aniston-drama also helped her to stay in the press.

    • Anitas says:

      She cleverly built her career on being Brangelina’s victim. She and Cameron Diaz are probably two worst actresses in Hollywood.

      • Merritt says:

        She had a career way before that.

      • Anitas says:

        She was great in Friends, but that finished in 2004. Everything after that was forgettable and definitely didn’t warrant her A list celebrity status – that only came as a result of the clever PR regarding the whole Brangelina drama.

      • Carmen says:

        Diaz was great in The Counselor. Aniston just seems to. Be whiny-perky in everything she’s in.

    • Daisy says:

      She’s a pretty good comedy actress and she chose her roles wisely. There are mich worse actors in Hollywood.

      • doofus says:

        I agree with you, daisy. she’s not the greatest actress, but she does have good comedic talents/timing, and she is good in ensemble casts. though I haven’t seen it, other folks said said her dramatic roles were done well, too.

    • Dani says:

      Wow so much hatred. She had a career long before Brad even met Angelina. She might not be a great drama actress but she’s amazing in comedy and romance. Just because you stan for Angie doesn’t mean you need to tear down someone else so badly. There are much worse actresses in Hollywood.

      • Mander says:

        Exactly! It’s all or nothing around here with her. So weird. What did she ever do to deserve this? Even if she is a PR victim, it’s as much the press as her. Why do people care so much? Especially THIS many years later.

      • norah says:

        what great movies has she done after friends ended? she is still stuck in that comedy phase and yeah she had “hit” movies but not recently. most people try to try new things but she hasnt -

      • Latte says:

        I’m not a fan per se but I like her. She plays the PR game like all of them do but she’s pretty honest in all her interviews and judging from what people say about her, a good friend who has everyone’s back. Never thought Friends was all that but she was good in that cheating/con film with Clive Owen and apparently genuinely good in Cake. She’s in great shape and has a good, solid style she sticks to.

    • NotSoSocialButterfy says:

      I think she is more of a comedic actress. Cake was horrible.

    • Tourmaline says:

      I think to some extent she is carried along on the goodwill from starring in Friends for years—many people LOVE that show and therefore will always love her

  8. QQ says:

    😂🤣🤣😂🤣no not black not Jennifer Aniston come on!!! The only new thing here is her face

  9. Goldie says:

    She looks fantastic! Hair, makeup, figure, and dress are all on point.

  10. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    The dress is fine. The shoe is fine. Everything is just fine with her. She is not a fashion girl and never will be. We need to let it go.

    Damon is fine if he has someone to wrangle in his ideas. The second season is leaps and bounds better than season one and that, for me, is because Reza Aslan came in and helped Damon focus and make sense to what Damon was trying to write in season one.

    I am looking forward to most of this season. I like everyone but the white teenage daughter on the show. She is obnoxious and you can tell that no one knows what to do with her character. I think I saw that she was dressed like a grunge girl straight out of the 90s this season.

    • mia girl says:

      I enjoyed season 2 so much. It was one of the best seasons of a tv program I’ve seen.

      Can’t wait for the final season to start. I have friends who work at HBO and have seen the first few episodes. They say season 2 energy continues and that fans should be pleased.

      More importantly I have been assured we will see plenty of Kevin eyebrow and lip-wobble action…

      • Aiobhan Targaryen says:

        Mia Girl, you have made my day. I agree that it was one of the best shows last year that no one watched. The Knick is on that list as well. I am really looking forward to this show coming back and the mess that is going to be Game of Thrones this summer.

        But will we see more of Justin’s butt? That is the question I really need to be answered.

      • mia girl says:

        AT – I have not heard about any Justin butt action – but will inquire and get back to you!

  11. Tanguerita says:

    luuuuv this dress.

  12. michelle says:

    She really needs to stop the constant sunbathing. Her skin is beginning to suffer. I actually like him but i will never get the hype of jennifer Aniston post friends.

  13. Joni says:

    Her face looks totally different.

  14. Dttimes2 says:

    They both look baked out of their heads

  15. Kitten says:

    I would wear the hell out of that dress.

  16. mellie says:

    She looks so much better here than she did at the Oscars, this is a good look for her, she trimmed the hair up and that dress is amazing. I like it all. I think she’s very pretty.

  17. Kate says:

    The dress is very pretty and she rocks it but she really needs to lay off the tanning. Girlfriend’s looking more orange than Pippa M.

  18. Dolly says:

    Can’t mention Jen without mentioning Jolie in some form.

    • Skylark says:

      Agree, it’s so tiresome.

      No particular fan of Aniston but I think she looks really nice here, as does Justin. They seem pretty happy and contented and supportive of each other.

  19. Pandy says:

    She looks great per usual. But I don’t see a connection between them. Spider sense is tingling.

  20. minx says:

    Too much tanning. That’s all I can see.

  21. tracking says:

    She looks great, love her hair a little darker. Agree she should give the tanning a rest. Can’t wait for more LEFTOVERS!

  22. robyn says:

    I like the slightly darker hair. She looks gorgeous!!!

  23. Debutante says:

    She’s definitely put on some weight, hence the heavy color on her cheeks to “sculpt” some cheekbones.

  24. jequill says:

    Am I the only one to think she could be preggo ?
    Her hips are larger, she’s got a little bump and puffy cheeks.
    Or maybe she just gained a few pounds….

  25. Adele Dazeem says:

    Whatever the tweak, changes, hair color, weight etc., I think she looks better than she has in a while.

  26. Jayna says:

    Jen’s hair looks much healthier. I love the color, and it looks like she put some long layers in, rather than the usual one length, angled.

  27. Tara says:

    She looks gorgeous!! Love her more natural healthy hair and slightly more filled out face. It’s like she grew back into her distinctive beauty.

  28. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Love the dress, the shoes, even the tan..which is odd for me. She looks younger & fantastic! Good job, Jen.

  29. Rae says:

    I think she looks great. Her legs…I want them!

  30. Rocio says:

    I think she looks amazing! She reminds me of her Come Along Polly days.

  31. Penelope says:

    Jen looks terrific in this outfit. And her body always looks healthy and fit.

  32. Sage says:

    She has a perfect figure and dress compliments it. The makeup and tan is too harsh.

  33. The Original G says:

    She looks good. Her outfit length and shoes are dated. I think her fans like that about her, though.

  34. Erandyn says:

    “doesn’t it seem like something that Angelina Jolie would wear?”

    This actually reminds me of the time Angelina wore a black leather dress to the Mr & Mrs Smith premiere… ironic? It would be really funny if Jennifer were taking a subtle poke…

    Here’s a pic: http://www.theage.com.au/ftimages/2005/06/08/1118123887121.html

    • doofus says:

      eh, doubt it. if you google (pics) of “aniston black leather dress” you get several different pics of her wearing one.

      ETA: if you do the same with jolie’s name in place of aniston, you get the same. lots of women wear this kind of dress.

  35. bluevelvet says:

    Trying to look sexy for her hubby…can’t fault her for that! She looks good.

  36. Alisa says:

    I think she looks great. She is almost 50. I think her face looks different because she gained a few lbs. She was sooooooo skinny when she was on Friends so the weight is filling out her face more. She is still thin and in great shape. I would kill to look this great when I am her age

  37. deevia says:

    Wow she looks better than both Brad (weasel-esque) and Angie (skeleton-esque) combined. And to think she was the unfortunate looking one in that triangle. She also appears very natural which is admirable in Hollywood.

  38. Lola says:

    What the? She looks like Caitlin Jenner in the face in these photos.

  39. 76May says:

    Sadly, the tan ages her.
