Why We Love Jennifer Aniston for Flaunting Her Cleavage at 45
How low can you go? If youâ€™re talking about Jennifer Anistonâ€™s red carpet outfits over the past few weeks, pretty freaking low.
AtÂ the Criticsâ€™ Choice Awards a week ago, the Cake actress rockedÂ a scarlet Gucci tux; at last nightâ€™s SAG Awards, she went with a vintage John Galliano gown. Two completely different looks that shared twoÂ distinctive details: a delicate lariat necklace and drop-dead cleavage.
Just about everyone raved about her revealing choices, though some (E!â€™s Fashion Police star Kelly Osbourne for one) wondered about the 45-year-old actressâ€™s decision to expose quite so much, well, post-perkiness. "Your face may look 20," Osbourne said, "but the boobs don't."

Hal Rubenstein, former fashion director at InStyle and author of 100 Unforgettable Dresses ($23, amazon.com), begs to differ: â€œIt saddens me that there are people who only believe cleavage is only applicable to women under the age of 25 with old-fashioned champagne glass-sized boobs. Women need to stop fixating on age. Aniston looked happy. Her fiancÃ© looked happy. End of story.â€
Weâ€™ve got to agree. In an age where so many celebs are sporting rock-solid, surgically-enhancedÂ breasts (you know who you are), itâ€™s kind of refreshing to see someoneÂ embracingâ€”and flauntingâ€”her natural assets, gravity be damned.
