    • shirab

      No to the belly strip.

      • sagecreek

        Seriously. Even in December, we have to show midriff? I think not.

      • http://www.readbarbara.com/ ReadBarbara

        Paste some plastic googly eyes on her ribcage and her torso can be a new Muppet.

      • Danielle

        Lost me at the midriff, picked me back up again at the shoes.

    • conniemd

      I think I like the skirt, but the top and jacket make it all so black and boring. Color or print in the blouse or even white might have stopped me from falling asleep looking at it.

    • In_Stitches

      This would be infinitely chic-er without the strip of belly skin. Still a bit boring and bipolar (giant gems with casual hair and a leather jacket?), but much better than it is currently.

    • mmebam

      Her shoes are cute. Too bad they’re not her size.

    • ralish

      The belly strip is terrible, but man am I glad she got rid of the bangs!

    • Sobaika

      This is terrible. Also one of the better things she’s worn.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        Exactly.

      • aeb1986

        I’m just glad the booms are gone!

      • SugarSnap108

        So true. Her consistency is admirable, though.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Bare midriff in December? Maybe in Singapore.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      So pretty, and yet so blah almost every single time.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Whiteboard appropriate, for sure.

      My gut is to not like anything she does. But aside from being boring as fuck, it does work nicely for her. Her linebackeresque qualities are softened, her hair is healthy and she’s rocking a bracelet I’d cut a bitch over.

      • Constant Reader

        Pretty much my only reaction to this look was “I need that bracelet.” The rest is just background.

    • SewingSiren

      Nice skirt , too bad she couldn’t buy a new top too. She’s out grown the one she’s wearing.

      • BrooklynBomber

        ♥ ♥

    • alyce1213

      Again with “look at my belly?” She must have just stood up because she has a red crease line. She’s trying for Madonna-edgy, mixing big diamonds (?) with leather and casual.
      Overall, it’s not terrible and no bangs is always an improvement for her.
      However, I can’t deal with bare legs in December.

      • ballerinawithagun

        The red crease line was the first thing I noticed also!
        Stockings are in style again, didn’t she get the memo?

    • Trickytrisha

      I’m kind of loving the pic of the models, even if they look 14. Jessica’s cute here, if a tad underwhelming. I don’t dislike the bare belly as much as apparently 90% of BKs (and TLo) do. I like the black jacket, but it’s not photographing well against the black backdrop.

      • kimmeister

        The model in white looks like she’s unleashing an epic fart.

        • Sarah

          HA! I was kind of digging that pic until I read ur comment. Now I’m just glad I wasn’t in the room.

    • Coleen

      Her torso looks like an eyeless Muppet.

    • MilaXX

      It just looks sloppy. The strip of skin and the beachy hair don’t work with the black leather jacket. it’s like the top and the hair are one look, the leather jacket is another and the skirt/shoes/jewelry are another and they’re all fighting each other.

    • Not applicable

      we get it, you’re loaded- could you put more diamonds on?

      • kimmeister

        All on the same hand, at that!

      • marlie

        I just realized that the event is co-sponsored by Tiffany & Co., so it’s all loaned to her. ;)

    • Tatiana Luján

      No item of the things she’s wearing seems to be related to the other items she’s wearing.
      The fact that everything is black doesn’t mean the pieces go well together.

    • jw_ny

      That red crease across her belly…how embarrassing for her! I didn’t notice anything else…

    • Lesley

      I like it better on the model with a shirt tucked in and no crop top. i thought those crop tops would end now that summers over?

    • Anna_Cecilia

      Mrs. Timberlake: you’re not an edgy fashion girl. Stop trying to make it happen.

      I like your bracelet though.

    • BrooklynBomber

      Eh. Cute shoes, though.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      Superfluous and unnecessary belly skin. Love the bracelets. Love that she lost the bangs. But WTF with those shoes?

    • Sarah

      ‘S bad when it looks like you’ve been taking your cues from Kim K. Only hers woulda been tighter. And showing a bigger belly strip…

    • Jessica Freeman

      She’s always so boring, and her clothes never help. One positive for her, thankfully the Booms are gone.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      Personal best in a sea of abject disasters.

    • Julie Chase

      Well, her head looks good.

    • boweryboy

      This outfit probably cost more than six months rent, but it looks like she picked it up from the bargain bin at Value Village.

      Also, did she get caught in a sudden downpour and her shirt and jacket shrunk? I don’t get the strip of skin. Why?

    • Nika E

      Its like I like it, but just not on her. The torso skin is unnecessary to say the least but if this would have been on someone else woth no torso out and ankle boots I think I would have loved it.

    • sienna elm

      That model in the white dress is one of the more terrifying model shots I’ve seen! Ghostly and skeletal.

    • AlisonS

      Everytime i see this strip of skin deployed, all I can think is that she’s trying to say “LOOK! I’m not pregnant!!!” and that’s about it…
      Could have been a very cool and easy look if it weren’t for the INP strip of skin.

    • marlie

      Ok, that model’s pose (the one in the white) cracks me the hell up.

      Aside from the totally unnecessary belly showing, she looks cute. a little forgettable, but cute.

      • boweryboy

        It’s simultaneously funny and scary.

    • Pennymac

      I adore the shoes. The rest should work, but the midriff strip (stripdriff?) Is distracting.

    • KT

      This is so half-assed. That skirt is completely wrong — skinny jeans would be much more fitting, but even then this would probably look too casual. Good hair and makeup, but way to pull a Jolie otherwise.

      • demidaemon

        My thoughts exactly.

    • throwaneyeonthis

      She looks great, except for fold line on torso. I predict she will move more and more into Hollywood rich wife look…almost channeling some Rita Wilson in these pics.

    • Gatto Nero

      Nice, except for the strip of bare midriff. The shoes and jewelry make the look.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      What the hell? No. Toddler outgrows shirt is not a look.

    • frannyprof

      I’m not loving this look, but I’m glad she’s not deploying the booms.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      Jessica Biel: Even in black, she’s beige.

    • Nancer

      I really hate those shoes.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      i’m liking the leather lace and diamonds combo. if you insist on wearing all black, at least be dripping with diamonds, please.

    • lifeisastory

      She lost the spirit of this dress when she made all the changes.

    • ashtangajunkie

      Irrational hate and her outfit is stupid.

    • LeelaST

      Love the shoes & the jewels.

    • Imasewsure

      I actually think the outfit is cute (although I don’t love the skirt). The shoes are cute too but definitely not together

    • andi56

      Leather and a showing midriff? Nope. This looks sloppy as hell, and without the je ne sais quoi required to wear that half-assed get-up. Go back home, call your stylist, and try again.

    • quiltrx

      Just say NO to Dora the Explorer belly.

    • http://www.dogsdotcom.blogspot.com/ Plink

      What? Did your top shrink in the wash?

    • GillianHolroyd

      I think her makeup looks pretty good here but sadly that curved hem on the crop top just makes her look like she’s outgrown it.

    • MannahattaMamma

      the whirling vacancy in her eyes distracts me from the teeny-weeny top…in December? In New York? All the black leather in the world couldn’t save this one.

    • Sunraya

      I adore those shoes, love the jewelry, do not like the dress on her, not even one little bit. Ugly.

    • Sunraya

      And I can’t imagine looking at that photo with the model in the white version of this and saying to myself, “I think I really want to look like that!!!” :)

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      no. no no no. I would rather have her be bare ass naked and just wear the jewelry and the shoes. The rest? Carlie Simon’s dark sided alter ego.

    • demidaemon

      WTH all around. Who the hell okayed that stupid shot for the look book? And what is this half-assed montrosity Biel is wearing to a premiere. Just barrels of NO here.
