promo tour: jessica biel for ‘total recall’

August 23, 2012

jessica biel has never been one to wow with her sartorial choices, so i didn’t really have my eyes peeled for her promotional  activities for total recall.  her looks weren’t disastrous, they usually aren’t. some of them were even spectacular, there were 2 or 3 looks which had me going gaga. then there were some looks which needed some fine tuning. at the end, i was pleasantly surprised.

by the way, i’m totally on board with the bangs.

:: los angeles premiere ::

 jessica biel became the latest celeb from the lauded fall 2012 dior couture collection. jessica wears strapless, ankle length tea pink dress. this length seems impossible to pull off, for us mere mortals at least. the dress has a very feminine silhouette, with a nipped waist and exaggerated hips. white louis vuitton cap toe heels are perfect for the dress. but those tom binns jewels are an absolute eyesore – they actually ruin this whole look. the earrings would have sufficed, there is no forgiving that necklace.

:: berlin premiere ::

jessica is a complete knock-out in this sequined fall 2012 elie saab gown with a high halter neck and open back at the berlin premiere.  this dress works perfectly on her – look at that bod!  the bangs+bun combo is spot on.  so are the stud earrings and makeup. this is one of the looks i loved from this tour.

:: dublin premiere ::

jb showed up in dublin wearing a fall 2012 zac posen dress. the gold jacquard dress has origami detail on the bust and the back. this is one of the looks i hated.  i don’t like the dress, i hate the hair and the mustard manolos are not helping the case. basically, this is a hot mess – due to the styling. the only thing i do like are the bright lips.

:: london ::

i love feathers, i love lace and i love bright shoes – so it makes sense this is one of my all time favorite jessica biel looks EVER. the dress has a faux tuxedo collar and panel on the bodice, with lace sleeves, a waistband, feathered peplum and a lace pencil skirt.for some, there might be too much going on here but this giambattista valli couture dress is right up my alley. valli couture never lets me down.  i am loving the bangs and the ombre hair color, though  i wish the hair was a bit sleeker. neon louboutin pumps inject some color into this look. do you love this as much as i do?

apart from the big premieres, jessica made lots of appearances at after parties, talk shows and photocalls. here are my picks from those events.

again with the hits and misses. if there one thing ms. biel is not it is consistent. looks #1,3,4 are ah-maze. the other 2 are meh. (l to r: in oscar de la renta, in giambattista valli, in christian cota, in dolce and gabbana)

the girl can work a pair of trousers. the elie saab ensemble (look #1) and the valentino jumpsuit (look #2) have stolen my heart.
