She is returning to work following the birth of her third child in February and Jennifer Garner today showed that she means business.

The long-sleeved frock displayed Jennifer’s pins and she made her slim legs look longer with the help of a pair of tan sandal shoes with wooden heels.

The story will see Justin Timberlake playing a protg that learns the ropes from Ben’s deceptive and illegal business founder.
The film is predicted to do well with the strong leading men guaranteed to attract a large audience of females into cinemas.
It is also being developed by Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way unit and British star Gemma Arterton will play the love interest.
Despite his gruelling schedule and lots of travelling, however, Ben hasn’t neglected his fatherly duties and has been flying back and forth to see his family.
