The actresses looked gorgeous at the star-studded event, both opting for bold looks on the same day that they were each snubbed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences when the nominees for the 2015 Oscars were announced.
Aniston, 45, stepped out in a daring take on a tuxedo. The Friends alum showed off some serious cleavage in a plunging red two-button jacket worn with a matching pair of trousers, both by Gucci. She brought further attention to her décolletage with a layered gold necklace.
With fiancé Justin Theroux on her arm, Aniston wore her golden-highlighted hair down and with a loose wave. She shimmered with sparkling eyeshadow and dramatic lashes, adding a slight glossy lip. While just hours earlier she was denied an Oscar nomination for her role in Cake, Aniston looked far from gloomy. Up for Best Actress at the Critics' Choice Awards, the star grinned as she posed for pictures with her actor love.
Aniston was joined on the red carpet by Jolie. The Maleficent star walked solo, with no sign of her husband, and Aniston's ex-husband, Brad Pitt.
Jolie, 39, went high glamour in a floor-length silver gown. With a wrapped waist and a deep neckline, the metallic dress highlighted the stunning star's curves. The red carpet-ready number also featured a train and billowing sleeves.
Mrs. Pitt wore her dark locks in voluminous waves that fell at her shoulders. She drew attention to her eyes with long lashes and a smoky eye. Jolie added further drama with a pair of eye-catching diamond stud earrings.
Also snubbed by the Academy on Thursday, Jolie was up for honors at the Critics' Choice Awards. The star's work leading 2014's Unbroken earned her a nod for Best Director.
