Jennifer Garner made a gorgeous appearance at the Starkey Hearing Foundation Gala in Minnesota on Sunday evening. The actress — who recently returned stateside from Paris — looked radiant in a sexy black gown and was all smiles as she posed for pictures with singer Jordin Sparks on the red carpet. Once inside, Jennifer was honoured for her work with early childhood education and the Save the Children organization, and upon taking the stage, she gave an emotional speech, saying, "Oh my gosh, this night. I didn't know what I was getting into. Did you guys? I mean, I got a necklace, and I've been crying back there. It's an honour to be here with you all; it's an honour now especially at the end of the night to receive this award."
In addition to her philanthropic efforts, Jennifer is also gearing up for the August release of her upcoming comedy, Nine Lives, alongside Kevin Spacey. Read on for more photos of her latest outing, then check out Jennifer's stunning Hollywood evolution.
