Jessica Biel in NYC

Posted on December 12, 2012

Geez, we don’t think we’ve seen one picture of Jessica smiling since she got married.


Jessica Biel heads out and about in New York City.

We like this look, though. We’re never going to love the way she’s wearing her hair now, but if you’re gonna do the big bangs, you might as well go for the full Joni Mitchell/Rickie Lee Jones look and add the slouchy hat, if the weather permits. Love the coat and the boots. The bag looks like a craft project gone wrong, however.

      TLo! Do you know where I can get that coat? I love it.

      • Lori Wade Miller

         Me too — a lovely combo of cape and coat.

        • kimmeister

          I want to call it a cape-coat, but that sounds too much like scapegoat!

      • sanja_ramic

        The coat is by Leon Max, and can be found here:

        Now if only it weren’t summer here.

      I like the coat and the boots, too.  But are the boots supposed to be scuffed like that?  If not, she needs to have them polished.  They appear to be in a state of neglect.

      • KatieKissinger

        They are not- I’m 99% sure those are the Cole Haan Cassidy booties, which I have and are not at all scuffed.  Also, they’ve only been in stores since late summer, so she’s put them through the ringer quite quickly.

        • pookiesmom

          NYC is hard on shoes. I can’t walk a block without scuffing my shoes. 

          I kinda like that she has scuffed boots, actually. Stars walk too!

          • KatieKissinger

            I live in DC and spend a lot of time in NYC so yes city blocks anywhere can be tough on shoes. 

            Stars do walk, but they also have assistants to take their shoes to the cobbler!   

            • pookiesmom

              True! Now I really want a shoe assistant!

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Jessica Biel and Katie Holmes. Annoying husbands, bad wardrobe. I see a trend here.

      • charlotte

         Only that one is post-divorce frumpy and the other one just got married.

    • Katie Wolf

      She looks like that really cool babysitter or older cousin you had, and wanted desperately to be when you were older. Love it.

    • Sobaika

      I can’t with that bag. Maybe a niece made it for her..?

      • lovelyivy

         I was gonna go with Etsy as the source for that bag.

    • gabbilevy

      I’ve gotten to the point where I really just can’t say anything nice about her. So I’ll listen to my mama and say nothing at all.

      • Meg0GayGuys6

        Funny, my mama used to say, “if you have nothing nice to say, come and sit next to me” 😉

    • foodycatAlicia

      She lost the ring down the sink and now she can’t show her hands for fear of Justin finding out.

    • foxy711711

      I thought there was a picture of her recently with the Letterman dupmsters and the bangs were gone…how did they mysteriously come back? or where did they mysteriously go? That bag is hideous and the coat is…awesome? i feel like her arms must be cold, right?

      • foodycatAlicia

         It was a side parting and a lot of product, I think.

      • V V

         I think in a moment of clarity she parted her hair down the middle and shellacked them into blending in with the rest of the straw pile on her head. Unfortunately, that moment seems to have passed…
        As a fellow be-banged girl I am sympathetic to the “I just can’t quit you!” aspect of growing out bangs, but her bangs need to be stopped.

        • kimmeister

          “Be-banged” – HAHAHAHAHA I love it!

    • Rand Ortega

      Was this posted to let the lady whose nice coat was stolen they found the homeless person who took it?

    • Lori

      Maybe she’s not smiling because her latest movie tanked and people are starting to talk about the fact that most of her movies tank and that the ones that don’t are either ensembles or have far bigger draws top billed. Whatever delusions she had about her career must be getting a little tough to maintain, even inside the celebrity bubble.

      Cute outfit though, except for the gawd awful purse and the bangs.

      • Jecca2244

        she was in a movie recently?!

        • alyce1213

          “Playing for Keeps” with Gerard Butler, universally panned. Also portrayed Vera Miles (a small role) in “Hitchcock, pretty good.

        • Rand Ortega


          • teensmom99

            maybe she’s not smiling because she hates the paparazzi shots.  Now I know that’s part of her job but still let’s not get all Star-magazine and say that that’s because of her marriage.  And she doesn’t have that horrible anxious look in her eyes that poor Katie Holmes had during her marriage.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      the bangs….the horror….

    • Sabrina

      I love how her boots are all messed up.  She’s doesn’t give a shit.  Awesome.

    • Isabel

      Did she even have a honeymoon? Did she start working right after the wedding?

    • MilaXX

      Hate that bag and she is seriously starting to grate

      • Pants_are_a_must

        She ‘s only starting to grate on you now? You, my fellow bitter kitten, have far longer patience.

        • MilaXX

          until now she wasn’t on my radar, a non-factor
          now that she’s wed the Timberlake, she’s always around

      • mjude


    • elleg929

      If I had that hair, I wouldn’t smile either.

    • nannypoo

      That is a really ugly bag. It would be more appropriate in the summer but it would still be ugly even then. Her hair is truly awful, but the rest of this outfit is pretty much what an ordinary person would wear on the street, so good for her.

    • petalfrog

      Adore the coat! Where I can get one??

    • B_C_J

      The hair is wretched and her bag is equally bad. The coat paired with the slim jeans and the boots makes a nice statement. 

    • H3ff

      Her legs look fucking fabulous in those jeans. Nice coat, too.

    • marlie

      I love everything except the bag. I WANT that cape/coat.

    • Anathema_Device

      That is an incredible coat cape thingy. Love it to death. She, however, is the Queen of Meh. Proof that it takes more than beauty and a great bod to be interesting.

    • l_c_ann

      Now, guys, don’t you recognize it’s her homage to the Les Mis poster?

    • StellaZafella

      I saw Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane’s lead singer) looking exactly like this running errands in the Haight/Ashbury in the 60’s and 70’s…these bangs were hers….give them back.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      She’s playing the “unhappy celeb papped/ooh look at my outfit” game very badly. Girl, you asked for this when you married your Timberdouche. Don’t back off now.

      • formerlyAnon

        She may or may not be handling the attention gracefully, and she certainly knew it was part of the deal long before they married. But “asked for it” implies she sought it out, when she may see it as an inescapable downside to her marriage.

        Not that I know for a fact, of course.

    • FrayedMachine

      I want that coat so badly. 

    • RocknRollmom

      Sad child.  Great cape/coat and boots.  Haven’t quite figured her out as to career track and lack thereof and the overall direction in light of marriage to man/boy child who just doesn’t seem to put a spark in her life, but that right there is more time than I should be spending on that as it is.

    • Dollsaga

      the same expression, the same dirty coat/boots as the homeless/jobless  woman has,  who begs for money on NYC subway trains. I’ll take a photo of her when I see her again. 

      • pookiesmom

        Tell me you’re not serious. That is one stylish hobo, if so! 

        No argument on the expression, though. 

    • Jaeda Laurez

      Her weave is NOT laid, and the bag is ugly, but I love the cape/jeans/boots combo. Although i always wonder how warm that’s supposed to be- i mean, it looks good, but it doesn’t strike me as a “waiting for a streetcar on a cold day” warm. 

      • alyce1213

        It hasn’t been that cold; the cape/jeans/boots combo is perfect.

    • decormaven

      That bag. Straight off Etsy. 

      • schadenfreudelicious

        and straight onto Regretsy….

    • Laura

      Sister needs to invest in some more lipstick. More often than not she looks pale – lipped and not in a good way. 

    • Imasewsure

      I think she looks adorable here but then again I too had a Joni/Rickie Lee phase – but without the fab boots, awesome cape/coat… I may have had that bag though

    • glennethph

      She’s married to a douche, how can you smile with that?

      • bellafigura1

        Wait, how come he’s a … you know, that awful word men use and women hate.

        • Tom and Lorenzo

          Honey, judging by our own comments section, you couldn’t be more wrong about women hating the word.

    • teensmom99

      Rickie Lee Jones, style icon!!!! 

    • erinbinek

      A little lip color would have gone a long way, here.

    • Scarlet39

      That bag is such an odd choice. 

    • afabulous50

      La Douchess!

    • StephanieLovesTLo

      Juliet Mills wants her cape back.

    • Zippypie

      Scruffy-looking.  And her arms look freezing shoved in her pockets like that.  Scruffy.

    • Cathy S

      Yeah, the coat and the boots make the outfit. That bag is horrible. She should just move the contents to her pockets and toss it in the next trash can.

    • Vera

      All good, but the bag doesn’t belong.  She looks so much better on the street than the RC.

    • Nancy from NY

      She looks unmade. Like an unmade bed. I agree with the scruffy comments.

    • quiltrx

      Another cape-ish coat!  Love it, even though I don’t love her.

    • amanda lynn

      she didn’t seem to smile much before she was married…. but DAMN, you’re right!

    • Lori Wade Miller


    • neofashionista

      she needs some lip color she looks sickly

    • formerlyAnon

      Unless the bag was made by a loved one under 18, it is a dreadful attempt to introduce irony and interest.  Otherwise, great outfit for outdoor in the city in the winter.

    • kcarb1025


    • Marie Fessler

      I thought maybe she was going for an Ali McGraw look, but scruffier.  But I also loved the comment about her homage to the Les Miz poster!
