The Stir reader (and, um, my friend) Tori had something interesting to say about this recent picture of Jennifer Garner:
This could be any mom anywhere taking her girls out to see a show -- and what surprised me the most was how much it surprised me! I thought I was most def not one of those naive women who buy into the illusion that all celebrities are drop-dead (and un-airbrushed) gorgeous all the time, far above all of us mere mortal broads, but ... based on my reaction to this photo, apparently I am!
I thought her comments were worth a discussion here on The Stir ...
What do you think of Jennifer Garner's, well, normalcy? Do you love that she seems to be just like you and me with her kids -- or does she have some sort of celebrity obligation to don a scarf and a pair of designer jeans, AT LEAST?!
As for what I think, well, if you look at celebrity pictures regularly, you know that this is pretty much Jennifer Garner's normal, everyday look. She cleans up well for a premiere or party, but otherwise, it's a button-down and plain jeans or pants for Jen. And I love that she's not afraid to own it, despite the pressure she must face to look perfect and styled every time she's out on the town.
I actually think the fact that she dresses like a "normal mom" when she's out with her girls might make her even more popular with her target demo -- Moms! It makes her seem a little more accessible, more Sandra Bullock than Christina Aguilera, for example.
But I thought I'd bring it up with you all. I'm sure you've noticed Jennifer Garner's casual choice of clothing ...
What do you think about it?
