LBDs are Jennifer Aniston’s secret weapon. In the ’90s and noughties she regularly favored little black dresses, and she still chooses all-black for some of her most high-profile appearances. Take the outfit she wore to The Hollywood Reporter’s Power 100 Women in Entertainment event. Aniston took to the stage in a belted black jumpsuit cut with a strapless neckline (off-the-shoulder is a signature look for Jen An).
Aniston won the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at the ceremony. During her acceptance speech she paid tribute to her humble “19-year-old self” and the times that she worked as a waitress in between auditions.
Back to black dresses—she’s worn several for appearances in 2020 and 2021. Highlights include: the embellished Dolce & Gabbana gown she wore on Jimmy Kimmel in September; the vintage John Galliano for Dior dress she wore to last year’s Emmys; and the voluptuous gown she wore to the Golden (*30*), held pre-Covid in January 2020.
Though her more recent forays into black are admirable, her ’90s and noughties all-black looks reign supreme. Take the daring low-cut gown she wore to attend the Oscars in 2000, alongside Brad Pitt, or the glove-dress combo she wore to the Emmys in 1995. The vintage Valentino gown she sported at the 2004 Golden (*30*) is another winner, as is the draped Balenciaga mini she wore to a premiere in 2008. Bring on awards season – and look out for Jen An in black.
