In 2001, Jennifer Aniston won a People’s Choice Award for her work on “Friends.” She attended the ceremony wearing a slinky dress in her favorite color — black — featuring a ruched bodice and a satin belt and accessorized with an oversized cross. Co-star David Schwimmer attended alongside her in a dark blue suit that seemed like it could have used some tailoring.
