Jessica Biel in Zac Posen for Dublin premiere: the worst hairstyle ever?

CB and I were just debating Jessica Biel’s hair, and why Biel seems incapable of finding a decent hairstyle. These new photos – from yesterday’s Dublin premiere of Total Recall – are a great example of Jessica’s lack of self-awareness about her styling. CB thinks the problem could be that Jessica simply has an awful hair stylist whom Biel trusts completely for whatever reason, thus bangs trauma and this raggedy mess. My take: Jessica is so convinced of her own beauty, so overconfident in her ability to pull off extremely versatile looks, that it simply doesn’t occur to her that she should just stick with a simple chignon.

Anyway… obviously, I think Biel looks pretty rough here. I even dislike her Zac Posen dress on the red carpet, although Biel did change for the afterparty (into the lacy Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress in rose-beige). The Posen dress just doesn’t suit her – maybe I would like it more on someone else, I guess. As for Biel’s costars… Kate Beckinsale wore a Donna Karan gown in hot pink. It’s a pretty gown. I’m not sure it’s right for a Dublin premiere, but whatever. And Colin wore a D&G suit. He looks meh to me these days.

Ugh. I still cannot even fathom why an attractive girl would consistently allow herself to be styled so poorly. What is Jessica thinking? Is she getting bad advice? Or is it a matter of insane overconfidence?

    God I am loving all this promo parade for Total Recall. Everyone looks so pissed off-it’s hilarious…

  2. Marta says:

    Jessica Biel has no style , no class – and just beaty is not enough. Same with Elizabeth Taylor before her.

  3. Michelle says:

    She looks beautiful as always, I love her hair like that.

  4. Miffy says:

    As a Dubliner, I find Biel’s leprechaun buckled shoes culturally offensive. And the least she could have done is wash her hair.

  5. hoya_chick says:

    Can we have less Jessica posts? She isn’t interesting, stylish, talented or particularly beautiful. At this point mocking her isn’t fun anymore, it’s kinda mean. Nothing positive is ever posted about her.

  6. libby says:

    Colin Farrell is looking hot again!!

  7. MsGoblin says:

    Looks like Scarlett made another dress out of the drapes.

  8. Jennifer12 says:

    I think she has great confidence in her stylist (and shouldn’t) as well as believing she’s such a raging beauty that she can pull off anything. And the truth is she’s really pretty, but not beautiful, and she can NOT pull off any look. She does so well in sleeker styles and sleeker hair. She looks like an overgrown prom queen.

  9. L says:

    You know Kate might ‘overdress’ but I always love her gowns. They look great on her.

    I actually like both of Biel’s dresses. Just not on her. I would wear the heck out of that Zack Posen dress if they fixed the hem and raised it about 4 inches. What is it with this girl and tea length dresses? They look awful on her.

  10. Jacquelantern says:

    Jessica Biel is gorgeous. I don’t mind her hair like that. Don’t understand the hate for her.

  11. DanaG says:

    What’s with the hair? It looks like she got out of bed and threw on a dress that was someone else’s and let a clown do her makeup. Not a good look but then I don’t think Jessica is all the good looking either.

  12. Adrien says:

    I know Jessica is all about the body (and the bootie) but the bangs made her look ordinary and officey, like she’s attending a management training program not a movie premiere. She looks like a Cristy Turlington impersonator which is bad coz I actually find her prettier than Cristy.

  13. Mimi says:

    What do people who don’t party do at after-parties? Colin is sober, both Biel & Beckinsale have been quoted as not being drinkers & strictly monitoring their food intake, so…night after night it’s just talking egos, ice water & crudités?

    • Amelia says:

      I can’t drink at the moment so I have occasionally been known to fake being tipsy at parties before when people are continually on my back about it.
      You’ll always know if I’ve been at a party the day after – I’ve killed a fair few pot plants in my time …

      • Mimi says:

        After I posted that I realized I phrased it wrong. I didn’t mean to insinuate that one had to drink to have fun at a party, more that if one had to do it every.single.night it might get old if you couldn’t cut loose with a drink and some canapés. But being a raging partyholic, I think my perspective is probably skewed. ;)

  14. epiphany says:

    I know this post is about Biel, but how much work has Kate Beckinsale had done? She doesn’t even look like herself!

  15. lucy2 says:

    Jessica’s hair is pretty awful, but I do like Kate’s gown, even though it’s a bit much for the event.

  16. Fani says:

    I think this is the JT effect. When a woman is in a happy, healthy relationship she looks good. Confused styling indicates confusion in life’s other arenas.

  17. ZigZagZoey says:

    I’m really starting to think there is something wrong with her….

  18. operagirl says:

    Biel should never, ever wear the beige/tan color she is wearing in that hideous lace minidress. It makes her look horrid.

    Beckinsale looks fab in the deep raspberry color.

  19. MST says:

    She is also incapable of being in a hit movie. Total Recall isnt a total flop, but it’s not doing well.

  20. Jenn says:

    Did Biel give up on being attractive or does she really think that she is just so beautiful she can get away with being a mess? She is so “meh” anymore, which is a shame.

  21. sunmoonstars says:

    She has the ugliest mouth I’ve ever seen. I catch fish with more attractive mouths than this chick. It looks like a prolapsed anus in that pic where she’s wearing the short dress and that tan lipstick….EW! Do people really find her attractive? Sure, she’s got a great body but that face is hideous and that mouth is the stuff of nightmares.

  22. Lucy says:

    That yellow dress looks like it’s made from an old sofa’s upholstery…bluh.

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      Well, she ran out of shower curtain material making that other dress….

    • MST says:

      It looks like silk brocade or a silk/rayon blend brocade.

      I’m not a fan of Biel, but I have broad shoulders too, and it can be hard to find clothing that looks attractive on you. I think a halter top or something with straps would look more flattering than a strapless. Many women (including myself) tend to hunch over when they wear strapless gowns and that makes you look even more like a linebacker.

  23. Birdie says:

    Very simple: She has no style and doesn’t know how to dress. Some women cannot dress themselves to save their lives and they are simply not stylish. Mix that with a blind stylist and you get Jessica Biel.

  24. Diva says:

    I can’t recall a time when I was wowed by her styling. She really needs to stay away from all those nudes and beige colors. They wash her out.

  25. judyjudy says:

    I’ve never thought she was pretty. Her facial geometry is very awkward. Her body is rockin though.

  26. Reece says:

    Biel is lacking in appeal.
    Kate looks great.

    I should go get my coffee. lol

  27. DANDILION says:

    Whatever they give her and insist it is pretty for her to wear.. and however they style her to seem naturally lovely.. she prances out.. ladylike poses and presents no danger, and is gracious to anyone..

  28. phlyfiremama says:

    Good grief, how many more dang premieres?

  29. J-Biel, in that lace monstrosity….when your skin, dress and hair are all the same colour you know your stylist isn’t wired right!

  30. katie says:

    Whoa Jessica is starting to look a little haggard. The orangish lipstick is bad. The dress is bad. The hair is criminal.

  31. Barbara says:

    May I be so bold to say I actually think Jessica is beautiful. Not the greatest actress, but I still like her. :-)

  32. LMB says:

    Did the hairdresser die while he was cutting her hair????

  33. Mairead says:

    I’m not sure it’s right for a Dublin premiere, but whatever.
    Are you saying that the Savoy ain’t a classy joint? O_0

    That fact that it’s a fair point well made s neither here nor there :-P
    I like her dress though.

    Jessica’s, not so much.

  34. Nina says:

    I don’t mind the hair so much… it’s definitely looked worse, but her dress looks like upholstery fabric. I think her wardrobe snafus originate from her complete LACK of INNATE STYLE sense… she’s been taking cues from other people for so long that now she thinks she can do it herself. Ugh… and she looks like a robot in every single picture from this promo tour. Colin looks dapper in his D&G… yum!

  35. Kelly says:

    That group photo says it all. If I didn’t know their real ages, I would honestly think Kate and Jessica were the same age. Jessica is proof that a healthy lifestyle is not enough. Genetics plays a huge role in how we age. Plus all of that plastic surgery makes her look haggard. Kate has been over doing it for these premiers.

  36. Shelly says:

    Jessica looks terrible. I generally don’t find her attractive most of the time, but she looks even worse here. And she just screams DULL. As usual.

  37. didoodah(france) says:

    She just screams ‘sad’ to me, she doesn’t smile and she doesn’t look at ease with herself; maybe it’s just not her, not her life. She’s beautiful but with absent eyes.

  38. skuddles says:

    That’s what my “hairstyle” looks like after I fall asleep with hair up in a bun. The Biel “I’m determined to look as crappy as possible” tour is still going strong I see.

  39. fd says:

    This girl simply does not know how to wear clothes and apparently has no idea what looks good on her. I agree with the poster who said she would probably be better off in simple, black, sexy Jennifer-Aniston type dresses, but she will need to let her makeup and hair be much more natural to pull off that look. I don’t know if it’s that she cannot wear color, but I can say I’m not sure i’ve ever seen her in a color that looks good on her. I think some minimalist, Calvin Klein dresses might also work for her. She has no clue how to pick dresses and colors that look good on her.

    As for Kate Beckinsale, i’m sorry but she looks ridiculous. Why is she always wearing ball gowns? Where is the ball? Is Prince Charming there? Is it prom? Is it the Oscars? I don’t care if it’s a great dress, it looks ridiculous because it’s not appropriate to the occasion. She is always overdressed and wearing pageant hair and it’s tiresome. I’m thinking she probably goes to the grocery store dressed like that at this point.

  40. fd says:

    Btw, Lainey has some photos of Colin and his mother, who was his date, that demonstrate that Colin’s mother has a far better fashion sense than Jessica Biel . . .

  41. void says:

    I’m Choctaw, I’ve seen a lot of Choctaws in my life, and Jessica has a lot of features common of the Choctaw tribe. Her teeth, the prognathism of her mouth region, the angles of her jaw, cheeks, forehead…it’s pretty amazing. So I will always find her beautiful. But she’s strangely awkward for someone with such a gorgeous body and lovely face. I kind of don’t think she has any personal identity, leading to this vacuous air she always seems to have.

  42. lori says:

    I think Jessica tries to hard to look `radiant`hence the slightly parted lip smile and blank look in her eyes. Someone is either kidding her or shes`just kidding herself if she thinks can pull off radiant. She also seems to try and down play the sexy, and she`s a fool for doing this. because she could accomplish sexy fairly easily. She`s Jennifer love Hewitt with a great Ass instead of great tits. Should I tweet this to her to help her out….maybe only photo ops from behind!!!

  43. Nessa says:

    Dress is lovely, and showcases her amazing figure! But, yes, hair makes her look 20 years older.

  44. bubbles says:

    Goddam I would love to look “that rough”! just once in my life.

  45. void says:

    Also, I think the cocktail dress is flattering. Not sure if I like the fabric but overall she looks great in it.

  46. void says:

    OT but if we make a gravatar account and our username on CB is not available, will we be banned for posting under the gravatar name after we get it?

  47. void says:

    Dumb question, goes by email, nevermind

  48. Kosmos says:

    Jessica Biel is definitely very attractive. No, I’m not a fan of the bangs either, but without the bangs, you get the full effect of her beauty. She looks great in nearly everything she wears, although some outfits aren’t winners. She has a great shape and appears to be nice enough. She’s oblivious to us, so let her enjoy her small moments on the red carpet. She never made it to top movie star status, but for her, she’s in love with Justin, and it sounds like she’s got enough in her life right now to be happy for.

  49. Jennifer says:

    Her hair isn’t even cut evenly!
