Girl, That’s Not Your Dress: Jennifer Garner

Posted on August 20, 2012

It’s not a dress at all, but the principle’s the same. Look, don’t start with us, okay? It’s Monday.


Jennifer Garner heads to the screening of her new movie “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” in NYC in a top and skirt by No. 21 paired with Yves Saint Laurent platform sandals.

No. 21 Top and Skirt

No. 21 Silk Shirt

No. 21 Slim Lace Skirt


We really love both of these pieces. But we’re fairly certain they simply don’t work any other way than the way they’re presented by the designer. In other words, that blouse was designed to be untucked and buttoned up. If you don’t do those two things, all the interest in the garment is lost. She should have gone down a size in the top (seriously, that thing is huge on her) and untuck it. It would have made for a more elegant line. As it is, she looks like she just got off the subway after putting in 9 hours at the office. And while we like that skirt, it does come off like something that’s not particularly easy to wear. At the very least, it’s not something that Jen is finding easy to wear, judging by these pics.

Honey, this is an interesting try, but it doesn’t seem to be in your wheelhouse. Box this up and ship it off to Chloe Sevigny. She’ll know what to do with it. And if she doesn’t, it’ll at least be hilarious.
