Jessica's All-Black Look: Gloomy or Grown Up?

10/10/2006 at 12:21 PM ET

Is Jessica feeling gloomy? Or is she turning Goth? ‘Cause lately, our favorite bubbly blond has ditched her normally colorful and flirty wardrobe for black, black, and more black. From L.A. to New York to London, Jessica has been in head-to-toe-black — and we do mean that literally! In addition to embracing her darkside, she also seems more covered up. She headed out for the after-party for Employee of the Month (middle) in knee-high boots, black jeans, black turtleneck, and a Dior ski jacket — and the temperature outside was a warm 78 degrees! Is she trying to keep in step with fall’s more somber palette, or is this meant to look more mature and sophisticated? Tell us: what do you think of Jessica’s new all-black wardrobe? Dig it or ditch it?

I think that she is wearing black because she gained a little weight and you know what they say that wearing black makes you slimmer, I don’t think it’s because of her mood, it’s more physical.

I disagree

i think it looks great, black is always clean and classy. but i agree that she may be hiding the few pounds she gained. but she doesnt need to hide it because she still looks great!

Chip Wood on

I disagree


I think it is alittle bit of both…I think she is alittle sad since her ex now seems to be happy with another woman, which has caused her to put on a few pounds so she is wearing black to cover both aspects. Regardless, she is still beautiful.

Let her wear what she wants to wear. Why does the media have to make a reason for people’s styles?

Mandi on

So much black is blah. She looks way better with long hair too.

I think she looks ridiculous in a ski jacket in 78 degreee weather. I’m sure she is covering everything up to cover a few pounds, which is insane. she has a great figure, but she looks like she is dressed for January. what will she wear then, a bikini? I don’t care for her anyway. She is the stereotypical dumb blonde.

I don’t like it at all. And I think it’s her stylist that’s making her wear all black, or maybe it’s the current “trend” of Hollywood. That and the short hair…. it’s all part of getting publicity for why she’s wearing all black, and it seems to be working. Anyway, I hate the all black look. And it’s ridiculous to wear all that stuff in 78 degree weather!!!!

I thik Jessica is taking a cue from Angelina Jolie. Maybe she thinks that wearing all black will make her less appealing to the photographers. If I was constantly hounded by them the way she is, I’d give it a try too!
