Jennifer Aniston in a Givenchy LBD in Paris: avant-garde or awful?

Celebrities Arrive At The 8th 'Series Mania' Festival In Paris

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s magical Parisian holiday continues! They arrived in Paris earlier this week, seemingly to mix business with pleasure by doing a series of appearances in between some relaxing tourist stuff, like shopping and going for romantic dinners. Last night, they attended the eighth annual (?) Series Mania festival at the Grand Rex in Paris. These are photos from the red carpet, where it seemed like Justin and Jennifer were the only stars in attendance.

While I’ve been enjoying Jennifer’s fashion in Paris in her other outings, I can’t say I like or respect this Givenchy dress. Then again, I rarely like Givenchy these days. There are times when a really crazy/architectural Givenchy will end up on a woman who can really carry it off, but those times are few and far between. This Givenchy isn’t even all that special – it’s just a high-neck tube dress with a cheap-looking ruffle. I think the “cutout” at the knee is supposed to be high-design, but it makes it seem like the dress is falling apart and/or unfinished. Aniston’s jewelry here is by Jennifer Meyer.

Something nice: I do think Justin and Jennifer look nice together. I would like to see Justin wear a flatter heel though? His wife is short, even when she wears heels. There’s no need for him to wear all of these lifts and heeled boots.

    I think she looks good.
    Btw, the last few days, her style is on point

    • Kat says:

      This is the earth orbiting back into place. Finally, FINALLY, the karma from the nasty affair reached her ex and even if she says she doesn’t care, she’s GLOWING because the universe is finally right again.

      • Jenny says:

        Kat: I’m not entirely sure you’re not being sarcastic but in my humble opinion Aniston traded up from Pitt to Theroux and that’s karma enough, I think. There were a whole bunch of horrible dudes in between (Vince V started off that loser-parade not so nicely – yuck!) but Theroux seems amazing.

      • Lady D says:

        @Kat. Jen split a couple that had been together for 14 years. That same karma will be looking for Jennifer. She should glow while she can, it is coming.

      • doofus says:

        “Jen split a couple that had been together for 14 years.”

        no, Theroux split a couple that had been together for 14 years.

        men cannot be stolen; if Theroux didn’t want to be with Aniston, he wouldn’t be.

        and yes, same goes for the Pitt/Aniston split; Jolie didn’t break that marriage up, Pitt did. though, from all reports, that marriage was on its last legs anyway.

  2. astrid says:

    don’t care for the dress and I have this insane need to do something with her hair!

    • DystopianDance says:

      She looks fine- her style isn’t risk taking, but nearly timeless. I think it ‘s a good choice and her man looks genuinely happy; not “commending” her for “his feelings”, IJS it’s a nice couple’s photo.

    • doofus says:

      I wouldn’t mind taking some scissors to her hair, either.

      and some darker color.

      she had a really cute bob on Friends one season and I wish she’d go that route again.

      • Amanda says:

        She looked her best with the brown hair for sure.
        Her style has been on point lately though and so has that body.

  3. susiecue says:

    I like the dress. But her face…. I wish she’d left it alone. It’s ALL I can think about when I look at her. FILLERS FILLERS FILLERS

  4. what's inside says:

    First thought when looking at the picture was: Has the seam let go? Quick, get a needle and thread. Next thought: How much did she pay for an unfinished garment?

  5. doofus says:

    I don’t like the cut out either, it makes it look like a seam came undone.

    but those SHOES, tho…! so hot.

    • Lady D says:

      I think these shoes are horrible and the one thing I have consistently liked about Jennifer is her shoe game. She has some to die for, gorgeous pairs of shoes. These look clunky. Hey maybe that’s how her dress ripped:)

      • doofus says:

        the back part does look a bit clunky but ends in a pretty severe spike. not sure I could walk in those (!) but I love the way they look.

        and I agree, some of her shoes are TO. DIE. FOR.

  6. Prince says:

    That’s an ugly dress.

  7. Guest says:

    He has weird eyebrows ^^

  8. Gaby says:

    I think they look lovely together. BTW, can’t wait for The Leftovers this Sunday! Most underrated show on TV, IMO.

    • Tanguerita says:

      same here. And critics are raving about the 3d season.

    • Esmom says:

      It is such a great show, I’m excited for it, too. I saw that Carrie Coon is in Fargo now. She’s awesome. I look forward to seeing where the rest of the cast lands after this series is over.

    • pru says:

      I just started watching it last weekend (HBO ran a marathon of S1) and it’s my new obsession!! I can’t wait for Sunday!! JT, CC and really all of the cast is so good!! #alltheawards

    • mia girl says:

      I am counting down the hours!

      And @pru – I agree #alltheawards

      While critics have really loved the show pretty much all along, there has been very little love from the Emmys, Globes, etc. Here’s hoping that season 3 brings the producers, writers, director (Mimi Leder-boss!), Coon, Theroux, Eccleston, etc. all the award nominations/wins they truly deserve.

      • tracking says:


      • pru says:

        Yes, here’s hoping!! Since I just got on board, I’m shocked that the only award nom has been for CC (SAG, I think?) although she’s deserving. Everything about this show is amazing!! Even the music is great…damn…so underrated.

  9. PunkyMomma says:

    While I don’t particularly care for this dress, I would love to own her closet of LBD’s.

  10. pru says:

    She looks nice. The dress is fine. Very much inside her comfort zone. Let’s be honest, she’ll probably never leave it!

    I never thought JT was attractive until I started watching The Leftovers. Yowza! And he is so good on that show! (plus I appreciate a guy that doesn’t prescribe to gender norms – let them all wear heels!)

    • k37744 says:

      Ditto this. He is SO. FINE. on the Leftovers.

      I think they both look fantastic. Like after a long weekend of sex and sleep. Lucky lady!

      • pru says:

        It’s weird, two weeks ago I didn’t see it.
        Maybe it’s seeing someone in motion that changes how you see them? Or talent? Whatever..he’s hot now!! 😉

      • doofus says:

        pru, I had the same issue with Tom Hardy. so many folks were all “he SO HOT!” and I didn’t see it until I saw him IN something (not sure what it was…Inception, maybe?). but in motion he is DIVINE.

      • tracking says:

        Agreed. I think it’s partly the fact that his wardrobe is “rugged male” on the Leftovers, plus the facial hair. It’s the metro look I don’t think brings out his hotness. And, yes, the talent–which is clear on the show too.

  11. OhDear says:

    Eh, not a fan of the dress but at least she seems to be trying different styles lately? She used to get ragged over how she wore more or less the same dress for events.

    • tracking says:

      +1 Not in the same league of her other looks on this trip, but at least she’s making an effort to step out of the box with more fashion-y stuff.

  12. michelle says:

    The bottom part of the dress ruins it. While i’m not an Aniston fan, they seem like a good couple.

  13. NotSoSocialButterfy says:

    She looks like a flamenco dancer who lost her mantilla, clunky heels and castanets.

  14. Lalu says:

    That dress is awful but she looks good.
    He could be hot if he didn’t dress like he does. I actually think he’s a good looking guy but I don’t like men that try so dang hard.

    • Esmom says:

      He is hot. And he has a warmth and intelligence and goofiness that’s really attractive, I think. I hear you about his style but if I had to re-do his outfit I’m not sure what I would choose for him.

      And she looks really great. I don’t like the cutout on the dress but the rest of it is flattering.

  15. Specialp says:

    But you gotta admit that for 47 she looks fantastic…. and healthy.

    • TheRealDeelio says:

      She’s 48

      She reminds me of Handler.

      Neither one has very far to fall. Consequently they can pull themselves together and look good. But it’s just good for them. They’re average looking people.

      Aniston’s like your old friend from highschool, who had a couple nose jobs and works out all the time. You know, that woman.

      She’s well pulled together, will never be caught with her gray roots (or his bald spot showing) but in the end they could more easily be your real estate broker and her interior designer husband, than glamorous people.

      • Amanda says:

        Same comment on ever thread lol.
        I’m beginning to think your speaking about yourself
        Every comment is based on a women’s worth being tied into their looks.
        Sounds exactly like something donald trump would say
        I think it’s pretty obvious who you voted for lol

    • Tulip Garden says:

      Agree she looks fantastic. Minimal weight gain, darker hair, lovely, toned figure and better sartorial choices have made her look years younger. The husband may have something to do with it as well, as in happiness. At any rate, #goalsfor48, or as close as I, a relative poor, can manage!

  16. amy says:

    The shoes and skinny jeans he’s wearing are ridiculous.

  17. Shijel says:

    I confess – I love men’s heeled boots. I think the shape looks nice, nicer than a flat shoe/boot anyway, and it also lifts the butt the same way women’s heels do. Rock those heels, Justin!

    • Jeesie says:

      Me too. It’s a really standard shoe style for men in my country. I guess not in the US?

      Anyway, it’s not like he’s RDJ with his Spice Girl platforms or Cruise with his extreme custom elevator shoes.

  18. robyn says:

    There’s something navy about those stripes on Justin’s t-shirt. They both look great but the high neckline and the cut at the knee are creative touches that Jennifer’s dress could have done without imo.

  19. YepIsaidit says:

    Justin Theroux is hot. He is better looking than Brad Pitt

    • Tulip Garden says:

      I kind of think the comparison is unfair. Pitt is in his fifties and, lately, looking great for that age bracket. Theroux is much younger and has spoken about his intense exercise regime especially for the Leftovers and his long-time avoidance of sugar.
      I think Pitt’s looks were deteriorating for awhile probably due to alcohol and substance abuse of some sort as well as , possibly depression, which he has spoken of in the past. While he has def improved, to reach back in time to look forty-ish would probably look bad on him. By all means get healthy and in shape, but don’t look as waxy and strange again after some kind of facial work. IMO, he looks better without it.

      • YepIsaidit says:

        Theroux is in his 40s – it’s not like he’s 20 years younger than Brad tho he looks it. So it is fair to compare the two.
        I don’t agree that Pitt looks better he looked terrible at the lost city of z premier. He looked better during the allied promo because those photos were airbrushed. Compare the two premiere pix and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

      • Annetommy says:

        In a minority, but I don’t think Brad was ever hot. Pretty yes, hot no. Team Justin.

    • Ike says:

      Wished people wouldn’t compare anymore. It’s like they are stuck in a rut. It’s like saying Heidi is way hotter than Jen, which I think is true. lol

  20. Joannie says:

    I dont like her dress but she looks really good and so does he!!

  21. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    Dress, not great. But she looks so happy! And her body is insane! #wishilooked likedthat

    It’s also nice to see a celebrity couple that’s glad to be together, forever how long it lasts.

  22. Katherine says:

    I like them together

  23. desertrose says:

    They both look amazing. I love them as a couple.

  24. serena says:

    What is it with that stripey shirt and necklace? Is it some punk-boy theme going on? I think it looks ridiculous.

  25. Katebush says:

    Might be nothing to go with height…Maybe he likes that style of boot?
    Also I love her shoes!
