Who could forget the other Bennifer? In 2005, Jennifer Garner married Ben Affleck and gave birth to their first child.

By 2007, Jennifer Garner was experimenting with a sexier spin on her classic look, opting for a choppier, artfully mussed hairstyle, a new smoky eye, and a very of-the-moment nude lip at the MTV Movie Awards — not to mention her illuminating new highlights. Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic/Getty Images
A decade after her industry debut, Jennifer Garner entered the 2010s as a full-fledged A-list movie star — and her upgraded new look proves it. Immaculate skin, chiseled cheeks, and a subtle, warm-toned smoky eye at the 2010 Golden Globes cemented her celebrity.Steve Granitz/WireImage/Getty Images
