LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jennifer Garner is the ultimate fashion chameleon. From casual mom in jeans and sneakers by day, to haute couture gowns by night, Jennifer’s fashion proves that this leading lady has it all.
As the wife of Ben Affleck and mother to daughters Violet, 4, and Seraphina, 1, Jen is a favorite for paparazzi who ceaselessly snap photos of her picking up her kids from school, playing in the park and grocery shopping. In her daily role as a mom, she dresses the part – casually sporting active wear that allows her to keep up with her kids.
But by night, Jen transforms into the talk of the red carpet.
Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson caught up with Jen at the premiere of her new film, “Valentine’s Day.” When Shaun spotted Jen’s strapless form-fitting black gown, she asked her which designer she was wearing.
“You know, I’ve started designing myself and this is just something – yeah, people don’t think of me…,” Jen joked and then added, “No, it’s Valentino!”
Jen then poked fun at her own casual wardrobe, “You’re like, you are designing? You wear jeans everyday!”
But Jen’s fashion suits her two jobs — as a mom and as a Hollywood leading lady.
“I have this internal battle between, I need to work, I need to work, I need to work and I need to be home with my kids. And the kids win,” she said in a recent interview with W magazine.
“I live my life at these two extremes. I’m either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress, " she added.
