Jennifer Garner has morphed from the ridiculously toned crime-fighting ‘Alias’ chick to a full-time blissful mother. Nowadays, the actress is more often seen slapping on some comfortable plain Jane clothes and running errands with her kids instead of glamming up for the red carpet like most Hollywood A-listers prefer to do. She’s no small fry, however, because when she does walk the carpet, she does so with style … and a $2,890 casual dress.
Jennifer made an appearance at the Beat the Odds Awards hosted by the Children’s Defense Fund, where she wore a combination lace dress by Valentino. The 41-year-old kept a youthful but age-appropriate look by adorning some pretty heavy-duty gems on her ears and keeping the rest of her jewelry to a bare minimum. The actress let her shoulder-length hair down in loose waves while sporting some fun fringes. Jennifer secured her position in the sophistication department by finishing the look with black patent pointed-toe pumps.

We rarely have anything new to say about Valentino because they always manage to churn out gorgeous romantic pieces. While the design is not exactly groundbreaking, Valentino is always able to create a polished-looking piece while inserting their touch of femininity into it. We love the beautiful lace bodice with the scalloped neckline and hem, smoothly layered over a darted pencil skirt dress — truly a classic Valentino that you can pass down for generations.
This effortlessly classy dress is available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
