- Jessica Biel spoke about her fashion evolution and her biggest fashion mistake with actress Ellie Bamber for InStyle.
- “I wish I would have explored some different shapes, and not gone so sexy all the time,” Biel told Bamber. “I think if you look at some of my earlier choices, maybe it didn’t need to always be about the body.”
- The “Sinner” star added, “I know it’s a vibe that you feel when you’re young, but still that’s what I would have done a little differently.”
Jessica Biel wishes she didn’t go “so sexy all the time” with her past outfit choices, and it shows how much her style has evolved.
The actress spoke about her fashion moments during a conversation with actress Ellie Bamber for InStyle.
When asked if there’s anything she wishes she knew about fashion during her early years in the spotlight, Biel said: “I wish I would have explored some different shapes, and not gone so sexy all the time. I think if you look at some of my earlier choices, maybe it didn’t need to always be about the body.”
Biel went on to say that in retrospect, she would have dressed differently.
“I know it’s a vibe that you feel when you’re young, but still that’s what I would have done a little differently,” she said.
The “Sinner” star rose to fame as Mary Camden on the show “7th Heaven” and stepped out on plenty of red carpets as a teenager. Biel’s earliest red-carpet outfits included tube tops, cropped tanks, halter tops, and miniskirts.
Here’s one example of her late ’90s fashion, complete with platform shoes.
Biel has also been rocking the see-through trend for years.
Tank tops were a staple in Biel’s wardrobe during the late ’90s and early 2000s.
By the mid-2000s, the actress started opting for more dresses, many of which were long and flowing.
Here’s Biel at the 2010 premiere of the romantic comedy “Valentine’s Day.”
Biel named the bright-red Giambattista Valli gown she wore to the UK premiere of “The A-Team” in 2010 as one of her fashion highlights.
“I remember feeling incredible on that day in that dress,” she told Bamber.
Nowadays, Biel regularly steps out at award shows and movie premieres with stunning dresses, such as the Ralph & Russo gown she wore to the 2018 Emmys.
“For me, fashion is fun because you can be one thing one moment, and something completely different another moment,” Biel told Bamber of her current style. “I just try to find a balance. Some things that are super fashion don’t make a lot of sense on the red carpet. My off-duty look is usually just jean on jean with a pair of high-tops.”
She said she goes to her husband, Justin Timberlake, for a second opinion on outfits.
“I say, ‘Justin, does this work? What’s wrong with it? And how do I fix it?’ He is my best fashion bounce-off,” Biel said.
