Jennifer Aniston stunned at the Oscars 2017 last weekend with a black Versace gown. However, some noticed that it was the same dress worn by singer-actress Jennifer Lopez half a year ago. Furthermore, it was very reminiscent of a look notoriously donned by her former beau Brad Pitt’s now ex-wife, Angelina Jolie.
The Friends star wore a black sequined ensemble at the awarding ceremony held in Los Angeles last February 26. It had a thigh-high slit that exposed her flawless leg. Its plunging neckline also accentuated her toned chest.
The 48-year-old was a special presenter at the 89th annual Academy Awards. After skipping the red carpet walk, she took to the stage to introduce the In Memoriam segment wearing the said black gown. The portion paid tribute to stars who died in 2016.
Jennifer Aniston’s Oscars 2017 look vs Jennifer Lopez
The sexy and sheer dress fuelled comparisons with Jennifer Lopez. The Latina songstress previously wore the exact same gown six months ago. It was for her August 2016 Madison Square Garden performance with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony.

According to E! Online, the difference between the two Jennifers’ identical ensembles came down to their styling choices. The all-American Aniston wore her blond locks straight past her shoulders and opted for neutral-toned makeup. On the other hand, the Ain’t Your Mama diva donned a more dramatic look with a sleek ponytail and smokey eyes.
As for their accessories, the TV actress reportedly wore $10.7 million dollars’ worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. This included a pair of 100-carat diamond earrings. Meanwhile, JLo had on nude fishnet stockings and a pair of statement earrings.
Angelina Jolie vibes?
More than being compared to the Grammy-winning performer, Aniston’s look raised eyebrows for another reason. As per Hollywood Life, the wife of Justin Theroux flaunted a look that previously made headlines for one of her alleged arch rivals. The celebrity is none other than Angelina Jolie, who made her relationship with Brad Pitt public following his 2005 divorce with Aniston.
Fans would remember that the Maleficent star wore a similar high-slit dress back at the 2012 Academy Awards. The now 41-year-old movie star also had on Neil Lane jewelry, Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, and a Jaime Mascaro clutch that time. However, what made her appearance stood out were her PDA moments with Pitt.

Unfortunately for the mother of six, the manner that Jolie carried the dress made her a target of bad publicity. According to some people, she seemingly tried too hard to pose sexily by repeatedly sticking her leg out of her slit. She did so, both while at the red carpet and during her onstage presentation of an award.
Celebrities who appeared onstage after her even seemed to throw shade over the pose. This was based on how they also jutted out their right leg in the exact same manner. Jolie simply dismissed the actions, but social media maximized the incident. An online trend, Twitter accounts, and a Tumblr page were even put up just to make fun of her protruding leg.
