Jennifer Garner looked elegant in a gray sweater and lacy silver skirt by Oscar de la Renta at the New York premiere of her latest film, "Arthur," in New York on April 5.

The demure red carpet choice looked polished and had a twist -- Garner's high-necked gray sweater was actually a reverse-style cardigan, with buttons down the back and a scoop back. We liked the contrast of the understated wool top with the more high-octane lacy silver and black embellished skirt, which Garner paired with black satin platform pumps.

Garner added another element of Upper East Side chic to the equation in the form of Cartier jewels, including drop earrings, rings and bangles.

The star's beauty look was also stellar. She sported a silvery smoky eye and perfectly tousled waves. Also looking stunning on the red carpet was co-star Helen Mirren, in billowing Lanvin.
