Jessica Biel In Nina Ricci – ‘Playing for Keeps’ Premiere After-Party

Jessica Biel changed out of her Versace gown for the ‘Playing for Keeps’ premiere after-party at Dream Downtown, to which she was escorted by hubby Justin Timberlake yesterday evening.

While he blends into the background of the dark night, she is a breath of fresh air, looking divine wearing a Nina Ricci Spring 2013 aqua draped dress with dramatic draped details, a thigh-high slit and a peek-a-boo lace underlay.

Why not save this kind of loveliness for main events?

I would need to look back over all her posts to be sure, but at this point I think that this is her best look so far this year.

The blue Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps are so very luscious with this aqua hue, and I’m surprised by the lack of Fendi arm candy; she carried a white-and-gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch.

In the last post I forgot to point out that Jessica has finally got rid of those pesky bangs which irked us so much.

You can buy Jessica’s Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps from Jimmy Choo US and Jimmy Choo UK.

    This is a really lovely, sweet and feminine look for Jessica even though I’m not a big fan of the design – the multiple slits on the dress are a bit of a mess.

    she’s really pretty here. This dress is perfect for her.
    I’m not fan oh these shoes with the dress.

      Not a fan of the shoes for this dress but also of the hair that covers the best part of the dress.

    Very nice look. I hate the matronly looks she usually sports so this is a breath of fresh air.

    I don’t like this dress on her, as I think it is an Anna Kendrick or Taylor Swift dress. Both of those ladies would know to wear their hair up in a romantic updo.

    Even though I love color as much as FC, I don’t think the pumps work here, as I wish they were more matchy.

    Good question! I like this far far better than the Versace. The colors are scrumptious.

  7. Set December 6, 2012 at 18:47 #

    Nice dress nice shoes, not so much together.

  8. Amy December 6, 2012 at 18:52 #

    i love it

    MUCH better than her Versace look. Seriously, why didn’t she wore this to the premiere? She looks stunning.

    • Fashion Critic December 6, 2012 at 19:51 #

      agreed…a longer version would have been amazing also… *sighs*

      • Yeliz December 6, 2012 at 20:16 #

        Oh yes, a longer version would have been gorgeous.

    Hallelujah to the bangs…I didnt realize she has a low hairline. Bangs are always better on someone with a high forehead like Nicole Ritchie. They were heavy and unattractive on her.

    I like the dress not loving it with the shoes.

  11. tiffany December 6, 2012 at 19:49 #

    The shoes do not work at all for me. Her sloppy her makes the dress look sloppy.

  12. LeeAnn December 6, 2012 at 19:59 #

    Love the shoes and the dress but not together-

  13. justme December 6, 2012 at 20:50 #

    Beautiful look. I would have preferred matching shoes but I won’t deduce points for that lol.
    I hope it is the start of a new era fashion wise for Jessica.

  14. TeaAtTwo December 6, 2012 at 23:35 #

    I think this is BDOTW worthy amazing. Hopefully this is beginning of a new style chapter for Jessica.

    The shoes seem to clash with the dress, because they are in the same color family but aren’t the exact same shade so they look awkward together. It’s like wearing yellow with pale orange. They might work under certain circumstances, but usually don’t.

  16. Jess2 December 7, 2012 at 02:57 #

    Definitely a breath of fresh air, I am very impressed by Jessica today. May this great style run last for a long while!

  17. MEME December 7, 2012 at 08:59 #

    I must be the only one who doesn’t like it, she makes everything look bad.

  18. Noemi (WBiS) December 7, 2012 at 09:39 #

    Gorgeous. They’re one of the most beautiful couples.

  19. kane December 7, 2012 at 10:59 #

    Yes to the runway look!

    You cannot really see that much in the run-a-way picture on the right, except for the shoes not going too well with the dress, hm.

  20. katie December 7, 2012 at 15:16 #

    Jessica looks stunning and so relaxed in this dress, she seems uncomfortable in a lot of the others, this style suits her

  21. EmmaWoodhouse December 7, 2012 at 15:35 #

    I love the color and the youthful feel, but not the multiple slits and slashes. That said, it’s a great improvement and I’m glad to see her happy and relaxed.
