Jessica Biel in Ralph & Russo at the Emmys: one of the best gowns of the night?


Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake attends The 70th Emmy Awards-Arrivals in Los Angeles

Jessica Biel has been legitimately nominated for big awards in the past year for her work on The Sinner. She starred and produced the first miniseries, and it was one of the rare miniseries that I watched from start to finish. It was dumb, story-wise, but Biel’s performance was good and I was proud of her for shepherding the project as a producer. It’s a big deal for her to be recognized with all of these big nominations. But of course, her husband is her plus-one, and Justin Timberlake does have a habit of making everything about Justin Timberlake.

Still, let’s focus for a moment on Jessica Biel. The Ralph and Russo dress is actually fantastic – from the waist up, I wasn’t in love with it because I thought the corset-top was too cinched. But I love the whole look – the dress is gorgeous and dramatic and vaguely bridal too (which I also enjoy). My one quibble here is that this dress needed to be paired with a better hairstyle. “Low-key beachy waves” don’t go with a full-on proper gown.

Here’s their E! Red carpet interview. Watch how carefully Justin avoids speaking for like 30 whole seconds. He’s trying to be good. But then he can’t help himself! He was about to BURST because his wife was getting attention.

    I actually think the hair is perfect. A more done up hairstayle would have been to stiff and boring.

  2. Shijel says:

    The Sinner’s plot was dumb, yes, but also entertaining, and I really didn’t expect Biel to shine in her role as she did, I thoroughly enjoyed her performance. So good on her.

    Ugh, JTimb. Good god I bet that man gets pissy at home if his wife has the /nerve/ to pull attention away from him.

  3. Nev says:

    She looked fab except her accessory. Ewwwwww

  4. S says:

    She looks great, as I hadn’t seen the stress standing up. I’m not big on judging relationships from a glance, but couldn’t help noticing that every time they cut to Jessica and Justin in the crowd they looked like they hated each other. I mean, maybe she just has resting grump face and, dang, the show was painfully unfunny, as noted earlier on CB, so maybe they were just responding to that, but it happened enough times that I noted it.

  5. Miss Gloss says:

    Definitely best look of the evening! Although, Mindy Kaling looked amazing and I have not seen a pic of her here yet. Maybe, I’ve missed it.

  6. Kay says:

    Every time I look at Jessica Biel I just see that terrible nose job. She had a dainty nose to begin with, this one just looks way too small and gives me Michael Jackson vibes.

  7. Snowflake says:

    All i gotta say is I want her ass! Literally, she has the best butt. Mine is wide and flat and i do squats! Any tips ladies?

  8. Belluga says:

    At first glance I hated it, but it’s gorgeous. That skirt is fantastic.

  9. Jess says:

    I think she looks amazing and kinda sexy. I don’t normally see her that way but she’s pulling this off in my opinion. I’m glad she got recognition for the sinner, it was surprisingly good.

  10. LT says:

    Love the dress! I thought she looked great – she’s thin, but her arms have definition, like she actually works out.

    Her husband drives me nuts, though.

  11. Sid says:

    She looks gorgeous, like she finally is getting her mojo back after all these years of marriage to that soul-sucking clown.

  12. Kk2 says:

    I like it but I think I’d prefer it in another color b/c I don’t love bridal looking gowns (it would be a great wedding dress though) .

  13. Digital Unicorn says:

    She looked really good, am not normally a fan of her red carpet style but she’s been killing it recently. And yeah he started twitching when she was talking and it killed him that it wasn’t about him. He tried thou.

    She seems a good person – smarter than him for sure. I can’t with him, the douche is way too strong.

  14. Capepopsie says:

    She looks great and Good for her!
    Sad little man.

  15. Mar says:

    Jessica is one of the nicest looking girls out there when she gets it right!

  16. Babs says:

    I hate whatever she did to her mouth. And her husband of course.

  17. skipper says:

    Why can’t he ever let her enjoy *her* moments? I’m sure he’s excited for her but damn. I can’t imagine taking the spotlight from my husband even if I was in pride overload for him. I feel so bad for her. Maybe she doesn’t mind and she’s used to it but it rubs me the wrong way.

  18. Megs says:

    Someone on twitter pointed out how much she looks like Carly Simon and now I can’t unsee it!

  19. Naddie says:

    She looks like a cartoon princess that came to life, just beautiful. And I like her as an actress too.

  20. Amber Dushman says:

    I just came here to say I really liked The Sinner and was pleasantly surprised by it!

  21. Jessica says:

    LOVED this dress! She looks gorgeous. Justin….he’s soo tiring

  22. saltandpepper says:

    She looks like a goddess here, best dressed for sure.

  23. dota says:

    I bet Justin seethes at the fact that she gets to wear nice gowns, different every time, to events while he has to essentially wear the same thing over and over.

  24. Mel M says:

    I barely made it through that clip because honestly she bores me but I’m glad I did because I got to see JT at least admit that he’s good at obnoxious. So maybe she’s totally ok with him being an immature idiot most of the time.

  25. Fluffy Princess says:

    He ruins everything. How can she stand him?

    Question: If this show and Emmy nominations, knocks her into a higher “List” , (i.e. from C to B or B to A) do you think she will leave him/divorce? For me it’s always been strategic on her part: He’s A-list and could get her into doors that previously were permanently shut for her…raise her profile…have a kid …FINALLY hit it with this new show…Aaaaaaannnnd, her and Justin have just “grown apart” and although they will always “love” each other blah blah blah. . .?? Or will she ride this douche bro until the end?

  26. violet says:

    Love Biel’s dress, love her hair with it. Dress has interesting detail and constructions that doesn’t overwhelm the thing as whole which is, please is anyone in the universe listening, how – it’s – supposed – to – work. She’s wearing it, it isn’t wearing her!

  27. Andreika says:

    She looks fantastic. I’d love to have seen her hair back in a loose ponytail with some long tendrils to the side. She has a beautiful long neck. If I had her neck I would have shown it off. Just my opinion. The dress is lovely. I could see this as a posh bride’s wedding reception gown

  28. Wen says:

    She’s gorgeous but she loses so many points for marrying such a douchebag.

  29. Yes Doubtful says:

    That was a horribly awkward interview… “who reached out to you from the past?” Huh? Who cares. Talk about what she’s doing TODAY.

  30. SJhere says:

    I like the dress, and hair. She looks lovely.
    Bless her for putting up with JT.
    This woman is a saint! Everyday she lives and tolerates that smug, obnoxious little twerp.
    I can’t stand JT. If I had to sit across the breakfast table every day and look at him..I swear he would have a plate of hot eggs dumped in his lap Every. Single. Day.

    Totally agree that she is wearing the clothes, not the clothes wearing her. That is how Marilyn Monroe always looked so wonderful and timeless.

  31. Lindy says:

    She’s an absolutely gorgeous woman and this dress is perfect for her. I actually like her hair here but I agree that a loose upswept look might be even better. I wish she would ditch her husband. He’s sort of awful, isn’t he?
