Jessica Biel's Met Gala Nose Ring: Should She Leave It In?

When we first saw Jessica Biel‘s outfit for the Met Gala, our first thought was that she belonged on our list of “Stars Who Punked Out.”

After all, her macramé Giambattista Valli Couture outfit was awfully sweet for such a tough-girl theme (Punk: Chaos to Couture).

But a closer look revealed that she added one bold accessory that took her look from princess to pretty punk: her delicate septum nose ring, which was the focus of a face with very little makeup.

We find it hard to believe that the wife of a former member of *NSYNC would go for a permanent nose piercing — though this would be the first we’re learning of clip-in septum jewelry — but it’s still a pretty bold statement from the star.

Tell us: What do you think of Biel’s accessory? Should she leave it in?

Not a fan of the septum piercing at all on anyone (although hers is barely noticible). Makes anyone look like a drug dealer or something. A tiny little diamond in her nostril would have been WAY more classy!

Jessica is pretty but she should take it out

Ella on

I don’t mind the piercing itself as it’s small and not so noticable, but I would have to say I don’t like it on Jessica- it detracts from the beauty of her face (which she has some killer cheekbones, let’s be real!)

suzanne on

definite no. Looks as though she needs a Kleenex.

Had Justin used one, his would have been MUCH MUCH bigger…

“a face with very little makeup?” What? What centimeter of her face, eyebrows, eyelashes, eyelids, lips does not have makeup here????? are you blind?

and I thought her surname was Timberlake now

tshape on

sure leave it in…your kids will love it, and after a few yanks, you can add something larger to fill the void – something unique – like a chicken bone. maybe when your 80, the it will only slightly separate, and hang from the cartilage…it’ll barely be noticeable. lol.

ppp on

under no circumstances should there be a ring in humans nose !!! Not even an animal”s nose !!

Really not a fan of Septum piercings on anyone. I love nose piercings when it is on side, I think they can be very tasteful and pretty and elegant even with the right stud (Although I am biased, I have had a very small silver stud in my nose for over 10 years now)
Jessica is so beautiful and I love that she is willing to experiment with piercings, just wish she had not gone with this one!! It does nothing for her at all.

Not if she has hayfever.

They make “clip” nose rings. I found one at Claire’s a few years back, they aren’t that hard to find. I think she looks good with it…

“Makes anyone look like a drug dealer or something.”
No it doesn’t. I have a small one like hers, a tiny gold ring. I get compliments on it all the time, even my mom liked it.

Jessica is a beautiful girl and doesn’t need that nose ring. She has very strong features and with little to no makeup still looks great.

fghidsu on

That thing looks ridiculous.

Sammi on

I didn’t even notice that, she’s so vanilla that I don’t give her much attention anyway.

Monica on

Looks like those bulls with the rings in their noses…

Smithy on

If she wants to ruin her looks and look like a cow…then go for it.

ashlynn on

Pierced ears (one each ear) great. Any other type of piercings scream no class, that goes for tatts also especiall on women. I see nothing attractive about them. Just sayin…

Peps on

It’s a fake, and not a real piercing, they sell them at Claire’s in any mall.

moemoelvr on

You know ur in trouble when you start putting HOLES in your face! Common Jessica your not 18 anymore. Your a married woman with a lot of class. ditch the bull ring!

Steph on

She looks absolutely beautiful. It’s a good look.

kim on

If she wants to leave it in, she should. If she wants to take it out, she should.

laurie muller on

I have never understood why anyone would wear a septum ring. Clearly, anyone who has one has never been to a hog farm. For years, septum rings have been used to control hogs and other large animals. They are not attractive. Please, Jessica. Take it out. You’re an exceptionally beautiful woman and you don’t need to gild the lily.

Milissa on

Not a fan but it fit the theme of the met ball. People who comment seem to forget that!
