Jennifer Aniston stuck to her winning formula for glamour at the 2020 Emmy Awards, and we are taking notes. The 51-year-old looked effortless in a vintage black Christian Dior dress when she joined Jimmy Kimmel onstage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

I archive and store these finds for roughly 20 years before I present them to my clients.’ Other celebrity fans of the boutique include Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Penelope Cruz, and Renée Zellweger.
Wow – so she didn’t exactly just pop down to the shopping centre for this one, then…
