Shining in the rain: Jennifer Aniston was wearing a shimmering stone-grey Valentino dress at the somewhat soggy London premiere of her new move Horrible Bosses tonight
Jennifer Aniston managed to brighten up a dull, grey evening on London's South Bank at the UK premiere of her new movie Horrible Bosses - despite wearing a stone coloured dress to match the leaden, rain-sodden skies.
Though muted in colour, the star still dazzled in her shimmering Valentino, accompanied with her sparkling smile and shiny white satin Tom Ford shoes.
The subtle but still glamorous frock was a sleeveless shift style embellished with sequins.

Smiling through: Jennifer lit up the grey evening with her high-beam smile
The star soon got out of the chilly-for-July weather however to pose for more photos in the reception of the BFI.
Joining her were her co-star Jason Sudeikis, co-stars Jason Bateman and his wife Amanda Anka, co-star Charlie Day and wife Mary Elizabeth Ellis, as well Radio 1 presenter Edith Bowman and T4 presenter Jameela Jamil.
Hand in hand: Later on Jennifer changed into an LBD for the after party at Shoreditch House in London and left with boyfriend Justin Theroux
Also grabbing the chance to rub shoulders with Jen on the blue carpet were actress Amanda Peet, TV presenter Zara Martin, as well as Made In Chelsea stars Millie Mackintosh, Francis Boulle, Gabriella Ellis, Hugo Taylor and Frederik Ferrier.
In the movie, Jennifer takes on the role of a sex-starved dentist and earlier in the day at a photocall ahead of the premiere, opted for something a little racy in keeping with her character.
The 42-year-old actress wore a simple yet seductive black leather dress.

Jennifer joined co-stars Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jason Bateman and Kevin Spacey who star in the comedy.

‘I absolutely get more comfortable in my body and in who I am as I get older,’ she has said.
