Breakovers a real thing, and Jennifer Garner is the epitome of one.
The Alias alum returned to the red carpet for the first time as a single woman Tuesday and she looked absolutely stunning. Garner, 43, attended the Chanel dinner in honor of Baby2Baby at Chanel Boutique in L.A. where she donned a black, knee-length dress that she paired with simple black strappy heels. She wore her brunette hair down, which allowed her shiny wavy locks to hit just below her shoulders.
This isn't the star's first public appearance since she and Ben Affleck announced their divorce. Her very first one took place at the Think It Up telecast, where she and countless other celebrities, including Jessica Biel and Justin Bieber, participated in a fundraiser aimed to support students and teachers in the U.S.
Tuesday's Chanel dinner saw the likes of Jenna Dewan Tatum, Ellen Pompeo and Selma Blair, all of whom opted for a more casual look than Garner. The Dallas Buyers Club actress has been keeping a busy schedule, which includes dinner with her ex-husband.
Last week Garner and Affleck were spotted at Nobu in Malibu, Calif., where they enjoyed a quiet meal together without their three children. Their meal was strictly friendly, as a source told E! News that the former pair is working on their friendship.
"They are working hard and enjoying being friends," the source said of the estranged couple, who are parents to Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3. "Ben wants her to be happy and vice versa."
Following their split announcement, a source told E! News that their divorce is "not contentious," as they both want what's best for their children.
For their most recent night out together at the popular sushi eatery, both Garner and Affleck dressed down, making sure they didn't give off any romance vibes. But we can all admit, they make one heck of an example of friendly exes.
