Yea, Nay, Or Eh? When “Beige” Is A Compliment
OK, so this isn’t the most groundbreaking look from Jennifer Aniston, an actress not noted for groundbreaking looks. But we’re ready to salute her Fall ’09 Valentino couture frock at the premiere of The Bounty Hunter in Germany, just because it’s light-years ahead of the bright red Lacroix gown she opted for yesterday. Risks reward some actresses, but Aniston—hardly spotted in anything but black—looked lost in the strapless, billowing gown. We much prefer her in Valentino’s gathered, one-shoulder dress, a simple, elegant option for the latest stop in her worldwide publicity tour. What do you think? We’d say she’s wisely saying less rather than more, a strategy that should let the movie speak for itself. Whether that’s a good thing, of course, is also debatable.
