Jessica Biel wears ruffled Balmain to GLSEN event: pretty or overworked?


Hand to God, I didn’t pick and choose photos where Justin Timberlake’s eyes were saying “COCAINE” on purpose. He just looked like that in every single photo from the 2015 GLSEN Respect Awards in Beverly Hills on Friday night. Following Justin and Jessica Biel’s big appearance Thursday night at the Night of Stars event, JT and Biel did their second red carpet in as many days at the GLSEN event. Perhaps this is the new-and-improved Justin and Jessica. For what it’s worth, Jessica has never seemed so relaxed on the red carpet. Motherhood really suits her – she seems less thirsty and more content. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if she got knocked up again in the next year.

Biel wore Balmain to this event, because it seems like they went straight from GLSEN to the Balmain party/event in LA. I almost always think Balmain is severely overworked, and this dress was no different. I feel like this needs a good edit – either you can have that intricate work at the abdomen or you can have a mini-cape and ruffled sleeves but you can’t have all three together, trying to compete in the same dress. As for how Justin looks… I actually like his outfit, but the EYES are killing me.

Meanwhile, at that Night of Stars event on Thursday, Justin swiped at Kanye West, #NoDisrespectToBenAffleck.

Justin Timberlake poked fun at Kanye West at a glamorous gala for guests including Katie Holmes, Allison Williams and wife Jessica Biel on Thursday. On receiving the Fashion Group International’s Oracle award at its Night of Stars gala, Timberlake joked of the honor’s lofty title, “They told me I was winning the Oracle award, and all I heard was ‘oracle’ . . . or as our friend Kanye likes to call it, ‘Kanye.’”

Kanye in the past has publicly dissed Timberlake’s music. Timberlake also joked that he’d previously been “doing shots with Gerry” — Gerald Storch, the CEO of retail giant Hudson’s Bay — and, “I don’t know your last name, but I look forward to future debauchery.”

For what it’s worth, I don’t think Kanye ever “publicly dissed Timberlake’s music” at all. Kanye name-checked Justin during his (Kanye’s) VMA Video Vanguard speech but my reading of it was always that Kanye respected Justin and thought JT should win more awards. Justin was pissy about it though, probably because Kanye said Justin cried after he didn’t win a particular Grammy. So… Justin still sounds a little bit pissy.

    Sorry, but the dress is hideous. It looks like it got ripped to shreds by something and Jessica was left to wrap herself in the remaining rags.

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Hideous, overworked, unflattering Halloween costume. I’m going as someone with no taste, said Jessica.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Halloween costume was my take too.

      And does it hold her upper arms in one place?

    • manda says:

      totally thought it was a witch’s costume too, so there you go!

    • smcollins says:

      Yes, GNAT! A Halloween costume is exactly what popped into my mind upon seeing that monstrosity. She’s so gorgeous, and this dress does her absolutely no favors.

  3. InvaderTak says:

    Cut rate wanna be goth. That’s awful.

  4. Prairiegirl says:

    Horrible. Did Justin pick it out for her?

  5. Jules says:

    He looks terrible.

  6. It'sJustBlanche says:

    That dress is hideous. She’s gorgeous though. She’ll have another baby within the next two years and be divorced within five. And she’ll be fine.

  7. Catwoman says:

    It looks like The Puffy Shirt’s evil twin.

  8. Nicole says:

    Narcissist and his nice wife in a dumb dress.

  9. Tiffany says:

    Justin pissy…..nooooooo. COCAINE face. Ha.

    And I just cannot leave it alone, what is up with Jessica’s face.

    • LuluLove says:

      LOL!! Kaiser nailed it with the first few sentences. Maybe that’s why he always looks so uncomfortable and not “in sync” (I know I know) with Jessica. There must be a blind on him somewhere. I used to think he was soo handsome!! Balmain=ugly and overrated.

    • cheryl says:

      I have a theory about Jessica’s face. Motherhood changes your face. In really different and weird ways for lots of women. Can’t explain Kim Kardashian’s face, but it could explain this… whatever this is. Having a hard time pinpointing it.

  10. Sip says:

    His eyes look normal inside the event pretty sure it’s just the flashes. And I like her dress but it would be better without the ruffle on the sleeves. Also Kanye has dissed his music he made a dig at Suit n Tie which had Justin retaliating on snl saying it’s got “rappers acting dramatic”

  11. Dena says:

    The dress is utterly hideous but she should have at least put her hair up so it wasn’t competing with the neckline and sleeves. It woulnd’t have rescued the look but it might have improved it a touch.

    And I can’t with him.

  12. Farah says:

    Kanye did say he disliked JT comeback single “Suit and Tie”.
    “No disrespect to Hov, but that was wack”
    Justin then went on SNL and sang “songs so sick, rappers are acting dramatic”.

    It was basically a douche off. It was also this time Jay and Justin were doing their BFFs4Life routine. Maybe Ye felt left out.

  13. cvb says:

    She looks good. I think she got some fraxel treatments, and some very well placed fillers under her eyes. Ahh to be rich.

  14. happyXamp says:

    God, I’m tired of Givenchy and Balmain. It doesn’t look good on anyone.

  15. My two cents says:

    She should have been paid mega bucks to wear that hideous dress. How does one have unlimited money to spend with unlimited dresses to choose from and end up wearing something so hideous?

  16. antipodean says:

    And…Jessica, and her adjusted face, will be performing “Flamenco for Foreigners” in the bar, after this function! I agree with It’sJustBlanche, who commented that she will have another child to seal the deal with Trousersnake, and will then ditch him and claim all the alimony forever. These two just have zero chemistry together, or maybe it is just that they are both in love with HIM.

  17. DONNA MARTIN says:

    JT is gross. Of course he is pissy. He’s a sucky baby that needs his ass kissed constantly. I’ve never looked at him the same way after he let Janet Jackson take the fall like a big p*ssy. Gross gross gross

    • Miss M says:

      I have never ever liked him. The Janey Jackson jncident was just one more to my list of “reasons I can’t stand this dude”. How he handle the breakup with Britney making a video with Britney look alike, what he said on the press, etc. I hope baby Silas loks mote like Jessica as he grows…

    • Sochan says:

      I genuinely believe he is not a nice, kind person. I think he is mean and manipulative and just not good. I have always believed this. It’s in his eyes — not just this set of photos. Many things he’s said and done over the years bears this out. Cruel things like making fun of the homeless man for JT’s wedding video. He is a nasty person. Mark my words.

  19. Zigggy says:

    Justin does seem p*ssy- I think it’s because with the last event he went out to with his wife, everybody was focused on Jessica and her “post baby bod” and not him. I love that he’s getting upstaged for once. It’s going to be a harsh reality for him, because everyone loves new Hollywood moms! ;)

  20. Zigggy says:

    Just gonna throw it out there that he probably encouraged her to wear this hideous dress, since the last one was so flattering and made everyone focus on her instead of him.

  21. Wentworth Miller says:

    She dresses like an old lady. Always!

  22. Sochan says:

    The dress is awful, and Timberlake has one of the most un-kind sets of eyes of any celebrities. Affleck is another one with un-kind eyes. I believe JT is a not-nice person and the eyes are the mirrors of the soul. It’s not just lighting or an unfortunate set of photos — he always looks harsh and mean in the eyes.

  23. Samtha says:

    They look like figures at Madame Tussauds.

  24. Fluff says:

    I don’t even care how ugly this is, I’m still super excited for BalmainxH&M.

  25. khaveman says:

    Sooooo first-year fashion design student. Really unflattering and cheap-looking. However, she looks gorgeous as a new(ish) mom.

  26. E.M.Maxx says:

    The shoes ruin it. He looks like a jerk , sorry. I hope her nanny is a 90 yo hunchback with too much facial hair .

  27. I Choose Me says:

    Oh good gorram. That dress is beyond fug.

  28. Jay says:

    Jessica Biel has the CRAZIEST body ever/unlimited money, and this is how she dresses?! For shame.

  29. Cc says:

    It will never stop to amaze me how rich and famous people who can buy or even be given whatever they want can go and pick something so hideous to wear, like that black dress.

  30. TreadStyle says:

    That looks like some type of Halloween costume (as they make them these days). Eww huge no, I’m experiencing much secondhand embarrassment for her

  31. Anare says:

    Eeeeeww. Dress is 10 shades of foolery. This would get a designer booted from project runway!
