Look at Jessica Biel on the cover of Elle. The girl is FIERCE, rocking Dior. Jessica looks like she had a great time at the photoshoot. I’m loving these pictures. The ‘Playing for Keeps‘ star was open during her interview with the mag, too.
On choosing 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 fuchsia-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 the best part of being a newlywed, Biel wrote exclusively to ELLE from her honeymoon, rumored to be in Tanzania: “Honeymooning is the best thing about being a newlywed. I wish I could honeymoon forever.”
Biel’s thoughts on marriage: “It means always having someone there to open the pickle jar…to share the ups and downs with, have adventures with. Someone to go swimming naked with. That kind of thing.”
On Justin Timberlake’s domestic side: “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.”
On plans for the 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.”
You can read Jessica’s entire interview, and see more amazing pics, in the January issue of Elle. It hits newsstands on December 18.
