Jessica Biel Flees Stella McCartney Front Row

03/01/2007 at 11:30 AM ET

One minute she was posing and vamping for pictures in a sexy minidress. But three minutes into Stella McCartney’s show at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris today, Jessica Biel was escorted from the designer’s front row – something never done at catwalk shows, which don’t last more than 15 to 20 minutes. A spokeswoman for McCartney told PEOPLE that Biel was jetlagged — the 24-year-old actress arrived in Paris from Los Angeles yesterday morning. But backstage, rumors flew that Biel was actually taken ill, as she did not reappear after she left the show. Lily Allen, the British singer who sat next to McCartney’s husband Alisdhair Willis in the front row, did manage to stay for the whole show, which included supermodels Daria Werbowy and Jessica Stam — and lots of black and gray woolly cardigans and big hooded anoraks paired with miniskirts.

Maybe she really was sick. She definately looks tired. If she had tried to make it through the whole show and stood up and puked on somebody, she’d be next weeks cover story.

Angee on

JT is gonna be a baby daddy ;)

Big whoop ? Would people have rather her fainted or had a volatile diarrhea or vomiting episode in the crowd? Give her a break, we all get ill and have to bow out of something sometime.

She looks so tired, why they heck even try to go out when ya know your gonna have a terrible time?! Maybe she is still recouping from the Oscars (where she looked fantastic but alittle under-dressed). Regardless, I still think she is one of the prettiest starlets around.

This is news, why? Give the girl a break; looking at those models would make ME sick. Maybe she’s just normal?

C on

I’m sorry she wasn’t feeling well. Her dress is really cute!

rachel b. on

dressed in black to disguse her baby bumb?

jap on

she looks ill for someone who works out (is athletic)…maybe a little too much? her makeup sucks. the pale lips don’t look good on her. i think that if you’re sick, don’t go somewhere. stay home and get some rest. don’t go out there just so people can’t take a few shots of you puking everywhere.

S on

WHO cares!!!!!!!!!! she hasnt even made any GOOD MOVIES she sucks GO BACK TO 7th heaven she is no actress!

Paige on

Leave the poor girl alone. She left for her own reasons if she was tired or sick, it shouldn’t matter. Also wouldn’t you be tired if you flew from LA to Paris in one day expecially with the time change. Geesh.

chico on

SHe just had the happens to the best of us.

Bethy on

i have taken the trip myself and the “spokeswoman” saying it was “jet lag” is an excuse for something “ELSE”…as far as this picture of her looking “sick”..yeah she looks awful that is apparent..but then again so are most of the pictures taken of her that aren’t “fixed”…just like MOST of the “stars” she is anorexic…it’s apparent in the face. Every other pic taken she is working out…can you say Karen Carpenter?
