As Jennifer Aniston walked the red carpet and later took the podium at the Golden Globe Awards, she opted for a sleek black gown by Valentino with a slit to the stars.

As for the classy, yet revealing Aniston dress, some may say Aniston took The Golden Globes fashion center stage with the Valentino leggy black dress. Has America's favorite friend pushed the envelope too far? Or do you possess the mindset that if you've got it, flaunt it?

While the glam look of black never seems to go out of style, her tousled hair and simple make-up and accessories simply dazzled. Sometimes at awards ceremonies, less is more, and in this case it was all the more reason to prove that point.

While Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were notably absent, perhaps the sun-kissed tan look of Aniston seemed more relaxed. Whatever the case, we want to know her workout regime!

Aniston's Valentino gown flaunted an extremely high slit and off the shoulder action for one shoulder with a strap on the other. Strappy heels completed the LBD look. Although it seems the purpose of the dress was to flaunt her tone legs, we want to know also how Jen gets those Michelle Obama-like biceps!

During the show Aniston was spotted grabbing a drink with pal Courtney Cox Arquette and joking with her The Bounty co-star Gerard Butler back in the press room.

Known for romancing her co-stars like Vince Vaughn, and A-list beaus to the likes of John Mayer and Bradley Cooper, time will tell if she and Butler become an item. Although she was not nominated for an award, perhaps someday soon one of our favorite actresses here at SheKnows will be at the podium to pick up an award instead of presenting one.
