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 don’t necessarily think it’s intentional on her part unless people are right about the weight thing, but she still needs to tone it down. even w/all black–look how much she’s got going on. yuck. she needs to simplify her look a little more, it’s too busy and borderlines on tacky most of the time now. look what she’s done w/a simple bob haircut. RELAX girl!!!

I definately think that Jessica is just trying to frow up some. I mean you can only wear so much low-cut-boobs-pooping-out-of-your-dress dresses. Plus with her dad always talking about her breasts she might just be tad bit uncomfortable. I know I would be.

Jessica is a pretty girl. The black is fine but I prefer color. Lighten up Jess.

I can’t believe we aren’t talking about the possibility of her being pregnant?! Isn’t that the usual assumption when someone starts covering up and wearing dark colors? I guess we’ll leave that to the Enquirer :-) I think she looks great. It’s fall in a lot of places around the country, I personally welcome the change from the bubbly brights of summer to tone it down with some chic darks.

I’m sorry I meant to say that she was GROWING UP not frowing up.

I have to agree with Cynthia – my first thought was, so much black because there appears to be more of her to cover.

I think she is wearing black because it reflects the mood that she is in right now. I think she has matured more. I think she looks more beautiful than ever, even all in black.

Black and white are very “in” colors for fall and winter this year. I think she has gained back a little of her pre-Daisy Duke days so, that makes her normal. I think she looks more real now. Who knows, who cares, leave her alone, she rarely has an off day with outfits…

I think the Media and eveyone else needs to back off alittle bit she’s been through alot in the past year and needs to figure out where she’s gona go from here and I think with everyone in her buisness is making her depressed I’m mean seroisly who really cares what she wears back off,besides i think most of the celeberties relationship are ruined because of the media.
