Hot metal! Jennifer Aniston takes the plunge in a daring low-cut silver mini... as matronly Reese Witherspoon covers up in trouser suit

Showing her best side: Jennifer Aniston stole the show last night as she stepped out to the Elle Women In Hollywood annual gala in an eye-catching short and low-cut silver dress

Jennifer Aniston is seven years wiser than Reese Witherspoon.

And that wisdom apparently paid off for the 42-year-old actress last night at the Elle Annual Women in Hollywood event, where she managed to outfox her fellow Thespian friend.

Aniston was streaks ahead as she stepped out to the Beverly Hills soiree in a daringly short, low-cut silver dress.

As a result it was the Friends star who came off looking more youthful than 35-year-old Reese, who played it somewhat demure in a Navy blue trouser suit.

Jen, who is among the honourees at the 18th annual gala, posed for photographs with Reese - who played Rachel Green's sister Jill in two episodes of Friends 11 years ago - backstage.

The pair cosied up and put on their best smiles as they chatted amid a frenzy of flashbulbs.

How low can you go? Aniston's plunging neckline meant the actress went braless

Playing it simple: Reese Witherspoon spiced up her trouser suit with a racy see-through lace top (left), while Michelle Pfeiffer rolled back the years in a low-cut dress

Viola Davis and Barbra Streisand were also among the stars at the event who received honours.

There were many other VIP guests on hand, who turned out to support the occasion dressed in their finest.

Naomi Watts looked stunning in a flesh-coloured knee-length dress while Nicole Richie wore a flowing black patterned asymmetrical number.

Classic in black: Katherine Heigl pulled out all the stops in a cleavage-baring LBD while Viola Davis looked chic in a silver number

Katherine Heigl proved she does still have it in her to look glamorous, and stepped out of her customary matronly attire in favour of a pretty LBD which put her amble cleavage on show.

Michelle Pfeiffer defied her age, with the 53-year-old looking breathtaking in a belted black dress with a plunging v-shaped neckline.

Other celebs who put their back into the style effort included Camila Alves, who wore a polka-dot blue number and Amber Heard, who was pretty in pink, teamed with a slick of blood-red lipstick.

And British star Alice Eve was pretty as a picture in a floral white dress as she posed on the red carpet.

Not letting the side down, Ian Somerhalder, Stephen Dorff and Joel McHale all looked dapper in slick suits.
