Jessica Biel: 'It Took a Leap of Faith' to Wear a Pink Wedding Dress

We were as surprised as anyone to see Jessica Biel in a pink gown on her wedding day. And as it turns out, the bride herself was a bit surprised about the unconventional choice, too.

“[Giambattista Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuchsia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection,” Biel says in the January issue of ELLE. “And I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink.”

The final result was, of course, that now-famous dress: a custom petal-pink strapless gown of silk mousseline and silk organza with a light-pink floral motif. “It was a bit of a leap of faith at the time, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined,” she admits in the cover story. “[Putting it on], I felt like I had made the right choice. I felt elegant. And it moved like a dream.”

Though Biel was somewhat hesitant to wear a pink gown, she never envisioned herself walking down the aisle in anything particularly traditional, either.

All About Jessica Biel's 'Whimsical, Dramatic' Pink Wedding Gown

When it came to selecting the perfect gown for her Oct. 19 wedding to Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel was a bit overwhelmed.

“It’s so hard to choose the dress,” she tells PEOPLE, which features exclusive photos and details from the couple’s special day in this week’s issue.

To help her along, the bride turned to longtime friend and designer, Giambattista Valli. “I was really comfortable talking to him about something really important like this,” says the actress, 30.

Ultimately, Valli created a custom petal-pink strapless gown of silk mousseline and silk organza with a light-pink floral motif that “was whimsical and dramatic,” says Biel. Her wedding look also included a heartfelt detail: Her floor-length veil was adorned with pearls from her grandmother’s wedding day tiara.

Valli also outfitted Biel’s four bridesmaids along with her mom, Kim, and Timberlake’s mother, Lynn Harless, for the big day.

As the reception rolled on into the wee hours, Biel changed into a silk shantung and macrame lace strapless dress from Valli’s spring collection.

For more about Biel’s fantasy wedding gown — and to hear Timberlake’s reaction! — pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on sale Friday.

What Was She Thinking?! Jessica Biel Wears Head-to-Toe Studded Leather

Forget wedding blogs! If Jessica Biel‘s latest look is any indication, the engaged actress has been spending her time reading the Man Repeller blog instead.

On Monday, Biel was spotted shopping in Paris (in the rain) wearing three items of clothing in studded leather.

The actress donned a loose-fitting red leather jacket (does it make anyone else want to break into Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” dance?), black leather ankle pants and leather booties — all featuring the same edgy metal detailing and all by Isabel Marant.

Had Rihanna or Rita Ora stepped out in this ensemble, we probably wouldn’t be writing about it right now, but when we saw the look on Biel, we had to wonder about her style 180.

While she does go all out on the red carpet, we’re most used to seeing her on the street in leggings and a workout top or jeans and a tee.

Don’t get us wrong: We love leather and we love studs as much as they next girl, but unless you’re looking to join a biker gang, moderation is key.

Tell us: Do you think Biel went overboard with her studded leather getup? Would you suggest she lose the jacket, the pants or the boots to improve the look?

Though Justin Timberlake put a (humongous) ring on it, Jessica Biel wants to make sure everyone knows the superstar is all hers. How is she doing it? By wearing his name around her neck, of course.

The brunette beauty was spotted in Hollywood on Thursday donning black skinnies, an orange sweater, lace-up heels and her newest accessory: a gold nameplate necklace featuring her fiancé’s name.

Biel isn’t the first famous lady to make such a public proclamation of her love. After stepping out with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian sported “KW” earrings in honor of her beau. And Selena Gomez has famously worn a “J” ring as a subtle nod to her boyfriend, Justin Bieber.

There were millions of dollars of diamonds and bejeweled clutches galore at last night’s Met Gala in New York, but the hottest accessory was definitely a good-looking guy in a tux.

Jessica Biel arrived on the arm of fiancé Justin Timberlake; she worked an ivory satin deep-V gown with jade stones by Prada (and that ring!) while he accessorized his tux with a Cartier watch. Gisele Bündchen (in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci) looked equally lovely on the arm of husband Tom Brady, who drew lots of looks for his new hairstyle.
