Style Rx: Jessica Biel's Pants Are 'Sheerly' Unfortunate

03/15/2013 at 01:30 PM ET

Jessica Biel pantsSplash News Online

Who: Jessica Biel

Where: A “Suit and Tie”-themed birthday party for Timbaland in N.Y.C.

Diagnosis: There appears to be a contagious bug in Hollywood at the moment where female stars’ significant others are playing stylist — and doing these girls no favors (see: Kim Kardashian). Biel’s adjunct stylist Justin Timberlake may have told her these baggy crocheted trousers, worn with hot pants and a long coat, looked terrific, but a mirror might have informed her otherwise. (PS: Are tailors refusing to hem sheer pants these days?)

Prognosis: This case isn’t as severe as some we’ve seen; from the waist up, Biel looks terrific. Recovery can be achieved by immediately swapping these pants out for some gorgeous, glamorous and well-fitted black trousers that are hemmed to an appropriate length. And much like taking a full course of antibiotics, Biel should take the extra step of burying these pants in the backyard to make sure she’s fully cured.

Think you mean Estee Stanley. Justin is her husband not her stylist.

Yuck on

I think she should fire whomever styles her. I have never thought Biel had any taste or style sense at all.

jackie2830 on

Agree with both comments…….she should wear whatever SHE likes….everyone’s taste is different. That being said, Jessica, run over to Brad’s World stat!

PM on

Lately her hair looks horrible too. Get rid of those bangs.

Julie on

Im sorry, but that outfit is a hot mess. It looks like someones sheer curtains off thier window.

Kerri on

If the pants were lined they might be nice.

Julie on

Jessica needs to hire stylist Brad Goreski from its a Brad Brads world…Bravo stat!!

Tracey on

Glad to see her bangs swooped. Her hair stylist has been failing her with those chunky bangs.

Ouiser on

If Jessica is comfortable in those pants and SHE likes them, then who are we to judge what she wears? I mean, really, People – who died and made you Mr. Blackwell?

Suval on

I totally agree with yuck says. I never like anything that Jessica wears. She never looks good. Her wedding gown was horrible. Also, as Julie says she needs to hire Brad Goreski as her stylist. He’s a wonderful stylist.

Burn them


Oh, so what!! She is young and beautiful and is covered more than some of these other “start” out there. I don’t see anything wrong with her having a little fun with her clothes…


I mean “stars”

Sigh on

Jessica used to dress cute but now her sense of style has gone downhill.

Sarah on

Jessica has looked a mess long before she ever met Justin. This look actually isn’t that bad compared to some of the others. Blame her stylist, not her man!

jen on

I’m serious – these are the exact pair of swimsuit cover-up pants that I bought last week at Macy’s. Seriously…she didn’t know they are for swimsuits?!

GirlfromFP on

Always looks dirty to me..

steph on

SHOCKED JT let her leave the house like that! LOL

EmV on

If I had her legs, her money…the fashion possibilities! oh well, she doesn’t look THAT bad! She looks happy, that’s what counts. :)

vmg on

She looks like a pilgrim

Kooki on

She’s gorgeous and looks happy. Who cares what she wears. People that rip her apart are just jealous of those fabulous legs.

bw on

a nice skirt with patterned nylons would have looked 100% better. shorts don’t look right in the wrong season, even with a layer of fabric over them, they still look like shorts – not pants.

heather on

i don’t think you even need a mirror to see that these are a disaster. why would you wear those, ever.

LeslieA on

I really like what’s she trying to do. I would suggest she only hem them. I think they’re a cool statement! And she’s young starlet with a great body in NYC! C’mon…everything goes in New York. Bring it! And to everyone else…jealz much? ;)

Tina on

I’ve never liked Biel’s style of dressing.

Bonnie on

I love those pants!

Cindy on

What I find even more unfortunate is our need in this country to judge everyone! Why do we care? What makes us feel or even believe we know what is best for someone else or what someone else needs or should be wearing. If any of us looks in the mirror and likes what we see than that is all that needs to matter. I find it the height of arrogance that we feel we have the right to comment on someone else’s wardrobe and if you get paid to write about it to me you are beyond arrogant and need some serious mental therapy! Grow up people and find something else to occupy your time because I’m sure Jessica could care less what you think!

Deni Smith on

Leslie A – just because we don’t think an outfit is fabulous doesn’t mean we are “jealz”. It just means we have eyes or some sort of fashion sense. The words “haters” and “jealz” are becoming quite passe.

NW Mamma on

She mentioned that JT picks out her outfits for her because his style sense it better than hers. Well he blew it on this one. Those pants are hideious!!
Get a stylist and hair dresser to step up your fashion sense!

I think Jessica and Kim both need to stop listening to their men’s suggestions for styling and just wear what they like. They have both changed so much since being with their men. Kinda sad that both have lost their identities.

Lucy on

This woman is bad news all around….she sucks as an actress, dresses like a bag lady, and walks around like she is the greatest thing that God ever created….not a fan at all….

starla fleer on

The whole outfit from the roots of her hair,to the tip of her toes is not good….it’s fine that her husband wants to help her dress,but he just didn’t get it right this time….I think it’s time she hires a real stylest.Unfortunately in this business,you can’t dress for you,you have to dress for the public.#humanbarbiedoll

LucieLaLa on

I’m sorry but its not just the crazy pants, just looks so unhappy and sloppy all the time, depression maybe???

Julesy on

The first thing she needs is a new hairdo. It’s been a big mess for a few years. Cut off at least 6″ of all the scraggly ends, let the bangs grow out, get some color and highlights. She would look world class with a great hairdo even with a cruddy outfit.

dlraetz on

I’d change the look by swapping out the top and pants for a little black dress and putting her in a colored lipstick–and I’d get a new bag too. So basically I’d keep the coat
