Jennifer Aniston and Selena Gomez Take the Little Black Dress to New Heights
No item is more of a fashion failsafe than a little black dress. In Hollywood, few have done more to promote the classic piece than Jennifer Aniston. The actress and lifelong LBD fan has perfected a signature look focused on simple, elegant fashions. This week, as she took over hosting duties on The Ellen Show, she brought that vibe to the talk show circuit. In a sleeveless black sheath dress and strappy, heeled sandals, Aniston was at her radiant best.
While the fun-filled episode featured Aniston surprising guests on the Warner Bros. lot recreation of Friends’ Central Perk coffee shop and interviewing funny man Will Ferrell, the highlight may have been her chat with Selena Gomez. A superfan of the 90s sitcom, Gomez admitted to freaking out the first time she met Aniston, at Vanity Fair’s Oscar party back in 2015.
Since then, the pair have become close — and Gomez has even adopted Aniston’s love affair with the LBD. The matte viscose bustier dress from Khaite that she wore to join Aniston onstage gave the concept a Gen Z twist. Perfectly coordinated as they talked up Gomez’s new album Rare, the duo proved the reliability of fashion’s favorite closet staple.
