How Gorgeous Are Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel? Here’s How to Steal Their Looks Right Now

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel at Time’s 100 most influential people gala earlier this week.

Like most worker bees, my 9 AM office routine follows a fairly familiar pattern. Trudge zombie-like towards coffee, browse my inbox for 10 minutes, then head to a gossip site to catch up on some celeb happenings. (Especially here, beauty news is important!)

This morning, I found myself swooning over a photo of America’s favorite newlyweds: the Timberlakes. While we don’t all have red-carpet galas to attend, these looks are still perfect for a night out on the town or a formal summer wedding. The former Ms. Biel looked radiant with bronze smoky eyes and a Bridgette Bardot-esque ‘do, and her beau looked particularly dashing in his updated 20/20 Experience look—we love the side-swept hair and fitted tuxedo. Whether you’re heading to a sophisticated fête or just a dinner with friends, follow these grooming tips to snag this A-list couple’s style.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake Are Married!: Our Dress and Makeup Predictions

We couldn’t be more excited for this power couple on their big day! (Photo: usmagazine.com)

We’ll admit it. We’ve been following the Jessica and Justin developments for a while now, and were pretty psyched when we found out that they were finally tying the knot in a secret ceremony this week in Italy. Now that they’ve made it official—for a rumored $6.5 million dollars, no less—we’re waiting with bated breath to see the first pictures of Jessica’s dress and, of course, her hair and makeup. Since we’ll have to wait until the next issue of People hits newsstands to see it, we decided to put our prediction skills to the test. Here are our best guesses for what Jessica’s look was:

Justin Timberlake Won’t Be Making His Own Fragrance Anytime Soon: Notable Quotables

Notable Quotables is a weekly series featuring a great quote. Whether it’s the founder of a beloved beauty brand, an eccentric makeup artist making headlines, or even a super-stylish celebrity, our favorite tastemakers always have something worth sharing.

We might not have predicted it during his *NSYNC days, but Justin Timberlake has become one of the most versatile entertainers in the business. From regular SNL host to movie star to designer, he’s now adding the title of face of Givenchy’s Play Sport cologne to his ever-growing resume. In a recent interview with GQ UK, JT talked to the glossy about his latest collab:

"I know nothing about what it’s like to put a fragrance together. I sat with them first, and we talked more about my lifestyle, so the fragrance is an extension of that conversation more than anything." 

Sadly, however, the rest of the interview revealed that we shouldn’t hold our breath for the musician to enter the fragrance game himself. (Which is too bad because “Sexy Back” really is the perfect name for a cologne.)

"I don’t think I would ever make my own—this is more comfortable for me. I don’t aspire to have my name on a fragrance.”

Should we start a letter writing campaign to change his mind?

—Lorelei

We might be waiting a while for a Timberlake fragrance to launch but there are still excellent cologne options for any man in the Birchbox Shop.
