We keep switching back and forth between the runway shot and the red carpet shot, muttering to each other, “How does she do that?”
Jennifer Aniston attends the 2013 Academy Awards in a Valentino couture gown paired with a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and Fred Leighton jewelry.

She made a perfectly gorgeous, perfectly simple gown go all stale just by putting it on. Maybe this is why she defaults to sequined bathtowels for the red carpet so often. Because she can’t even make a dress like this work for her. Come on, Jen. This isn’t tough to wear. Then again, maybe we shouldn’t be so hard on you because we can’t quite put our finger on why this looks so different on you. It could be that this shade of red is not your color. It could be that your shape doesn’t respond well to a lot of volume. It could be that it got a little wrinkley, which takes all the stark chicness right out of it. It could be the matchy, half-assed clutch. It could be the stringy hair. Whatever factor or combination of factors responsible, the fact is, we just don’t think this looks all that great on you. A classic Not Your Dress moment.
But we’re gonna blame it all on the stringy hair because … stringy hair. At the Oscars.
