It was a double celebration at the Chateau Marmont on November 15. Jessica Biel and Elle Magazine's Joe Zee joined efforts to celebrate the Elle December issue and Tod's Signature Collection. Hailee Steinfeld, Mindy Kaling, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Westfeldt, and Justin Timberlake attended the private dinner.
First Jessica Biel went dark and dreary in a Gucci outfit at a recent book launch, then she goes grey and kind of droopy at the Chateau Marmont event. Jessica's Roland Mouret dress with its fitted, midi skirt seemed quite snug on Jessica. Combined with her ankle-strap Louboutins, lanky hairstyle, unwieldy clutch, and neutral make-up, Jessica's whole look gave off a somewhat depressing vibe. It would be lovely to see Jessica in something brighter, and with a lighter red carpet attitude next time.
Hailee Steinfeld had a puzzling approach to dressing for the private dinner. The talented, young actress wore a fabulous Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony dress paired with bold, red tights, and black open-toe booties. Sadly, the black dress and red tights combination brought to mind a classic devil costume for Halloween. The laser-cut number would have worked better for Hailee had she worn different colored tights under it.
