Jennifer Aniston may not be the one on the red carpet with the most dramatic or fashion forward dress, but when she steps out, all eyes are always on her. She has a minimalist, California cool style with a touch of boho thrown in. Her clothes are like her hair, they are both effortless, and that is why we have been obsessed with her style since she started walking red carpets. Even when you look back at older red carpet photos of Jen, her outfits are still enviable. They are things you would wear today along with a beachy head of hair.
Let’s take a look back at some amazing throwback Jennifer Aniston red carpet looks:
Leave it to Jennifer to put on a simple tank top and pencil skirt and make us go crazy for it. She was part of the reason why you suddenly had a drawer filled with slightly different versions of the same white tank. Try as you might, you could never get yours to look as chic as hers. You always felt like you looked like you were in an undershirt, but you still want to try the look again today.

Joey‘s Matt LeBlanc‘s goatee but we are loving Jennifer’s floral tunic and black trousers. Remember how wearing pants with your dresses was very trendy in the 2000’s? You probably cringe at most of the looks now, but the proportions of Jen’s look show it can be a cool styling trick when done right. It’s also a memorable look because the low neckline was a departure for her.
This is one of the most iconic Emmy Awards looks. How many people can make brown look so good on the red carpet? And how many people can pull off that hairstyle? Not many as you discovered after using half a bottle of hair gel.
Forget about the fact that you would probably kill to be standing where Jennifer was in this photo. We are here to talk about fashion. This is a classic Jennifer Aniston look. Simple fit, neutral color, flawless hair and minimal accessories. It worked in 2004 and it would still work in 2016.
Slip dresses are having a moment in fashion right now so everyone is going to be obsessed with Jennifer’s tank dress. It’s not as shiny as Courtney Cox‘s gown, nor is it as bold as Lisa Kudrow‘s, but it just looks so darn effortless and pretty. It makes you think that red carpet dressing is easy as slipping on a dress and going out the door.

Another awards show, another effortless ensemble. Most people–especially nominees–go for big dramatic looks but Jen stayed true to her relaxed California style with this blush gown. She also made everyone want to tie a scarf around their neck like a choker.
There is something to be said about knowing what you like and sticking with it in terms of fashion. Jennifer still wears looks like this today and they look just as good now as they did then. This makes you want to actually invest is a great black blazer and bootleg jeans.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer were like the real-life Ken and Barbie on the red carpet. They always looked so perfect, but they never looked like they spent 48 hours getting ready. All Jen needed to do was wear this simple red strapless gown with a diamond choker and pull her hair back.
This is another awards show look that people still talk about today. It is ranked as one of the best Golden Globes dresses ever. The genius thing about it was it was a regular black gown. Then you add in the twisted knot and the buckle detail and that is all it took for it to become fabulous. Although, you put anything on Jennifer Aniston and it becomes fabulous.
This is a look that we are obsessed with because we know that Jennifer is pretty much the only person who could pull it off. Who else could show up on the red carpet in a white tank, sarong-like skirt and flat sandals and make it look chic and not like they didn’t just get off the beach?
Remember the his and hers suits? There were a lot of women who ditched their office-appropriate blouses and tried to wear their regular work suits to go out in the evening after seeing Jennifer in this look.
Awww, it’s Monica and Rachel. It is also another time that Jennifer found a simple gown with one fantastic detail. Remember this is 2003, not 2016. Every red carpet was not filled with cutouts back then like they are today. However, this remains one of the best subtly sexy cutouts ever.
