Is Jessica Biel wearing a shoulder-padded pastel power suit from the 1980s?


Seriously, people. What is wrong with Jessica Biel? I’m totally with everyone who says that she’s a pretty girl, but not as pretty as she thinks she is. And I’m totally with everyone who says that her styling is for sh-t, and that she is somehow incapable of pulling off the looks that she seems to be drawn too. I think Jessica is under the impression that she can pull off anything and she just can’t. Take this horrible suit. What kind of budget 1980s crap is this? Are we on a sailboat in 1985? Oh, but it’s even worse full-length:

I could have worked with the pants, honestly. The pants look kind of interesting, and like they might have a decent cut. Nevermind, look at how the pants give her a phantom wang. Those are old man pants. UGH. And the jacket is just hideous and tragic and dated and I’m almost positive she got it at a Salvation Army, after it had been donated by a retired secretary in Wichita, Kansas, after having been lovingly purchased at the Ann Taylor outlet. In 1985.

So really… does Jessica think this looks good? And if she does, what is wrong with her? Her boyfriend is an actual fashion designer! How can Justin let her leave the house looking like this? And don’t even get me started on the hair. This girl cannot dress herself.

    I actually like the suit. Hair – no. And her nose – whyyyyy?

  2. Syko says:

    I like the suit. I think the pants are about 1/2 size too tight, but otherwise I think it’s great. Not a fan of the head sticking out of it, though.

  3. bite me says:

    ann taylor outlet :ROTFL:

  4. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Jessica enjoys looking stupid. This isn’t her worse look but again, its not flattering. I mean she knows her best asset is her “amazing” body, why does she choose to wear stupid things that don’t show it off properly? IDK. She has a lot of potential to be a great red carpet fashionista and she just throws it away.

  5. coup de grazia says:

    i like the suit, but the top sucks and i love the shoes, but not with that outfit. would’ve liked the suit with maybe some sort of white bustier underneath and different shoes

  6. Feebee says:

    Maybe she’s paying homage to the era the original A Team came from?

    Like the shoes.

  7. bizzy says:

    i like the christmas ornaments earrings.

  8. Eileen says:

    This is BAD. And the shoes clash with the yellow in the pants…and not in a good clashy way. Yikes.

  9. RHONYC says:


    is that like a ‘larry levine’ or ‘harvey bernard’ suit circa 1989?

    hopeless part deux.


  10. jen says:

    Zzzzzzzzzz. It’s Friday-where are the hot guys?!

  11. Tiffany says:

    I second that Jen.


    Where is my daily dose of hot guys.

  12. gretchen says:

    The jacket would have looked ok with a tight little white dress i think…the pants NOOOOOOO

  13. sickofit says:

    the outfit, well, but the shoes? i am a huge high heels fan but those shoes? not for a ton of money, they look ridicule.
    And i have to agree: what happened to her nose? this looks awful…her nose seemed to be longer on older pics the short nose now is not doing her well

  14. Solveig says:

    She looks good even with this outfit. She should’ve been a model, not an actress.

  15. ViktoryGin says:

    “I’m almost positive she got it at a Salvation Army, after it had been donated by a retired secretary in Wichita, Kansas, after having been lovingly purchased at the Ann Taylor outlet. In 1985.”

    Beautiful description. LMAO.

  16. Mairead says:

    I was thinking the suit is more 1990s. The reason being is that I have very similar single-breasted yellow suit, that I purchased off a market stall in London in 1996. And even then the trousers were a better cut than that!

    I like the shoes and the top. But what in the name of God are they doing in the same outfit?

  17. Novaraen says:

    The suit is ugly and totally old school…and NOT “suitable” for a movie premiere.

    She goes from that red see through thing to this???

  18. lola lola says:

    I don’t think the suit is that bad but yellow with a white & blue striped shirt? Who styles this woman? I honestly have never seen her look good in anything. Her photos in Vogue in a jean top were horrid. Not a great beauty by any stretch of the imagination.

  19. LolaBella says:

    I like the idea of a nice pastel, summer pantsuit. However, this suit is clearly ‘vintage’ and pairing it with the horrible striped shirt makes it nautical and very cliched.

    If she removed the buttons (which are what screams the age of the suit) and just paired it with a simple ivory tank, this would have been much better.

    Love the shoes; just NOT with this outfit.

    Jessica, if you are reading this, please hire a stylist for your red carpet appearances.

    It’s hideous. It’s what badly dressed senior management would wear to work.

    A few months ago, I was in line at the movie theatre waiting to buy tickets. Das A-Team (heehee) poster was up and the person behind me said to his friend, “oh, there’s an A-Team movie coming out. That ought to be good.” It took everything out of me not to turn around and say, “really? Based on what?” These people are why these crappy movies are being made. Oh, I didn’t mention I was buying tickets for MacGruber? Odd.

  21. Oi says:

    I think my mom wore that exact same outfit to the company picnic in 1992! Except mom wore the pants the right length and with sandals.

  22. LolaBella says:

    @Persistent Cat: The last part of your comment made me laugh so hard!!!

    Sadly, I will see both of these movies…when they show on cable.

  23. denise says:

    Dorothy Zbornack would approve of this ensemble.

  24. bagladey says:

    This whole ensemble is really quite awful. The suit is great but not on her and not with everything else she`s wearing, especially those earrings.

  25. London Lady says:

    As much as people diss Gwynnie, she knows how to dress for press junkets. Make the trousers into contrasting shorts, say in grey, dump the horrific shoes and put a plain top underneath the jacket and it would have been fine.

  26. fizXgirl314 says:

    how come Timberlake is never with her anywhere?

  27. fizXgirl314 says:

    oh man is that the guy from district 9? LOVE HIM!

  28. juiceinla says:

    Tragic. I wish I could find the individuals in the fashion and stylist industry and take a machete to their closet full of vintage Dynasty-wear. The 80′s weren’t pretty people, and no amount of neon orange parachute pants or Esprit sailor knits is going to change it.

  29. jane16 says:

    80′s styles are coming back. I’m seeing a lot of jackets like that and big, above shoulder length hair.

  30. Dhavy says:

    Jessica, Don Johnson called and asked where he can get the same outfit to wear to a reunion of Miami Vice

    If I had her body I will definately be showing it off since it’s the only good thing about her.

    She’s ok looking but she thinks she’s so hot and it’s probably the reason why she thinks she can wear my mother’s outfit she wore in 1984. Someone needs to tell she’s fug and she needs to compensate by dressing better

    On a brighter note, her outfit makes me want to eat a slice of mango key lime pie sold here in Miami

  31. OhCamille! says:

    @RHONYC: ‘harvey levine’…’harvey bernard’ – lol – straight up, on point!

    good grief!

    I like her shoes!!!
