Jessica Biel For Elle January 2013
Jessica Biel posed for Elle’s January 2013 issue wearing Dior dress decorated with crystals and a metal necklace. The actress posed with Jean Paul Gaultier, Giambattista Valli , Christian Louboutin, Azzedine Alaïa, and designers at Maison Martin Margiela wearing their designs. The newlywed shared about her honeymoon and marriage as well as the pink wedding dress.
On her wedding dress: “I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least. [Giambattista Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuschia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection, and I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink. It was a bit of a leap of faith at the time, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined. [Putting it on], I felt like I had made the right choice. I felt elegant. And it moved like a dream.”
On future: My goal now is to work with great directors. Small role, big role, medium-size role—it doesn’t matter. I just want to work with someone who’s going to push me to a scary, exciting place that I’ve never been before.”
Christian Louboutin: “When I think of Paris, I think of this place. I thought it would be nice for Jessica to have a little part of Paris.”
Giambattista Valli: “This was like being in bed with your best girlfriend, chatting. Jessica has very fluid style—She’s never contrived or overdone.”
On Justin Timberlake: “He bakes pies. He’s Southern, so he’s got all this influence from his grandma. He does a three-layer pie…and blueberry crunch cake, which is pretty unbelievable. It doesn’t happen all that often, thank God. Otherwise, it would be a big problem.”
Jean Paul Gaultier: “For this collection I wanted to pay homage to David Bowie, Grace Jones, Madonna, Annie Lennox, Boy George, Michael Jackson—in a very tacky, funny, kitsch way.”
