Would You Wear Jessica Biel's Dress?

12/08/2006 at 01:00 PM ET

I’ll admit it, I covet Jessica Biel’s physique, which is why I was surprised to see her ditch her usual figure-clinging dresses and go for a voluminous baby doll dress by Giambattista Valli at the premiere of her new movie recently. I was even more surprised at how great she looks — not her usual style, but sweet and sexy none the less. Now, for those of us who don’t log the hours at the gym that Jessica does to have her perfectly defined shoulders and legs, this look is more challenging. I would definitely wear this dress (if I could afford it and actually had a fabulous red carpet occasion), but I can see how it wouldn’t be for everyone. Tell us: Would you wear a dress like Jessica’s? What do you think of it on her? – Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

She is pretty but that dress does not do her justice.



a on

who would
not me
would you?

Jennifer on

She is pretty, the dress isn’t that great but recently she has been caught in nicer ones on styles “look of the day” I am just jealous of her relationship with

Stephanie on

I like the dress, but I would need straps to hold the girls in!

beth on

the dress is pretty she is not

A on

There’s just something about the dress that I don’t care for, but there are worse choices out there.

ashley on

I think its her hair that makes the dress look so bad. Maybe if she had her hair down it would look a little better.

Olgaki on

why not…..???????????

Jessica on

If you want to look pregnant with twins…wear that dress.

Candi on

Love the dress and she is beautiful too, but I don’t like them together.

steph on

i think she looks adorable but could use some color on her lips! not many people can pull off this dress! go girl!

erin on

spaz on

so sarah jessica parker…i’ve seen that look on sjp for too many years now. too frou frou.

Kristin on

maybe if the dress were less poufy I might, maybe, i mean a strong maybe

Raven on

Awful dress. She’s cute…and it doesn’t do her justice. It’s not flattering at all.

Chris Avery on

Not a fan.

kristinp on

If I had her body, it would be possible to pull off any style… she is perfect.

MaryBeth on

I think the background along with the way she is posing (notice her legs) makes it look a lot worse than it is…she usually looks tall and sleek but here she looks short and squatty (or like she is getting ready to squat) I just think it is a bad picture…she looks great and usually dresses beautifully.

Tricia on

Yes, Of course I would. She looks awesome!

Angie on

I would not personally wear this dress, but she pulls it off! She looks great!

Alice on

The dress is cute and fashionable, what more do you want?

regina on

ît’s the same dress sienna miller wore, only in black. i gotta say i like it. she’s a beautiful girl and it’s a beautiful dress.

Stephanie on

Yes!! I love this look..She looks amazing in everything! She is naturally gorgeous and doesn’t over do it! She is truely a star!! http://www.whatcelebswear.com/component/option,com_browse/task,celebrity/celebrity_id,246/

ana on

I love this dress. Its beautiful and flattering.
I am extremeley fond of Jessica’s perfect body.
If you ask me she has the best body ever. Hope i look like that someday.

Kelly on

I know this is going to sound awful…but I think I would totally wear that dress; but I’m also pregnant. It would actually be perfect for my company holiday party since it would cover the bump nicely. Jessica still looks great in it though, even if she still has that perfect bod underneath that fluff.

amanda on

I wouldn’t wear it but I really like it!

Dawn on

I love it! She looks great like she always does! You go GIRL!

Elda on

She’s to beautiful for that dress!!

Amber on

Yes I would wear a dress just like that(in a different color though), it’s very nice and classy and I think she looks great in it.

Courtney on

She looks gorgeous! She can pull off anything with her insane body.

Sunni on

Jessica looks beautiful and classy in almost anything she wears. Although this particular dress isn’t her norm, she looks great. She has come a long way in her career and she is awesome.

Sunni on

Jessica looks beautiful and classy in almost anything she wears. I would wear the dress, but would never do it the justice that she does. Although the dress is not what she normay wears, she looks great an she has come a long way in her career.

shopoholic on

Yes if i had her body i would so wear it,and so would everyone else

CK on

Not as is.
I would add another few ribbons around the center to bring in the waist.

She looks like she squeezed into a 5-year old’s left over flower girl dress.

Shay on

TES! YES! YES! U lvoe the style and cut of the dress &love the shoes. However I would have kept my hair down &curly.

Sarah on

I would wear it if i was pregnant because your going to look like you are pregnant if you are wearing it.

Renee on

Sure, I’d wear it, IF I WERE STILL 10!!

sharon on

Love the dress! With her body, YES, I would wear it. :)

Shasha on

Yes.I think it’s fun.

Jessica on

I wore an Issac Mizrahi dress just like this one for my rehearsal dinner. It was adorable and everyone loved it…I got more complements on it than my wedding dress!

Cass on

I think the bubble dress is a designer’s joke on women (“let’s see if they’ll really wear anything if we tell them it’s chic and new!”). I don’t think it’s flattering on anyone, but it seems like stylists want their clients to be photographed in one at least once to show they know the current trends. With so much else to choose from, why the bubble?

hoogee on

Pretty dress, I just don’t think it would look good on me. I have a different figure than Jessica Biel. She’s a very pretty girl and not a bad actress.

Karen on

I love the dress. I think it’s super sexy still because it shows plenty of shoulder and just enough legs, etc. It’s sexy and sweet and a bit girly. She’s very muscular and fit, which could look a bit too masculine sometimes. The softness of this dress and her pulled back hair make her look much more feminine in some of her more form fitting outfits.

JEN on


abc123 on

It looks good on her.

Jenny on

She should really be on what not to wear….am I like the only one who knows anything about style here? Anyhow her looks are over rated and the whole Jeter thing really isnt going anywhere. Please believe me. Im someone who cares more about who a person is for who they are inside: Heres my take on things: There is no sexy, there is no perfect, but what there is is theres unique. That comes from my heart.

Katie on

i luv Jessica! and she looks great. I wish she would have tryed a different direction but i still love her!!!
