As our favourite Friend turns 50 we take a look back at Jennifer Aniston’s style over the years.
An embodiment of the expression “fashion comes and goes but style lasts forever” this classic beauty knows what suits her. There are few celebs that nail both show stopping red carpet looks and off-duty chic quite as effortlessly as Aniston – of course that yoga honed body helps.
As gal pal Rachel Greene it may have been that haircut that first got our attention but it wasn’t long until we were also lusting after her wardrobe – particularly after landing the Ralph Lauren job.
While Jennifer’s own career continued to soar so too did the style stakes. Her real life romance and subsequent marriage to Brad Pitt thrust her further into the limelight with the golden couple a regular fixture at events around the globe. Brad’s Californian style rubbed off on the New Yorker and her previously very polished style was replaced with something softer – the straighteners and chignons were ditched in favour of blonder, beachier waves and the outfits became less predictable and more edgy.
She found the formula as to what suits her and has stuck with it ever since – girl-next-door glam with a dash of city girl cool.
She may have had her fair share of subsequent relationship woes but style wise she never puts a foot wrong. Neutral shades to complement her honey toned skin tone are favoured over bold colours and smart tailoring and clean lines mean outfits from more than a decade ago still look current. We’ll be forever jealous of her collection of little black dresses (and jumpsuits) and no one else rocks a white tee and denims with quite as much aplomb.
If you’ve got it flaunt it and Ms. Aniston has it in spades. While she’s not afraid to show some skin she favours the ‘legs or cleavage’ approach to dressing and is all about understated sexy.
Age-defying and all-inspiring, the term ‘style icon’ might get bandied about but Aniston is only too deserving of it. It might be nearly 25 years since Friends first hit our screens but at 50 this golden girl was looking fitter than ever as she celebrated her milestone birthday with all her celeb pals (including Brad) wearing a black (obviously) jumpsuit with criss-cross back detail, plunging neckline and bare arms. We’re looking forward to seeing what the next two decades bring. Happy birthday Jen!
