Last Night’s Best Dressed: Is Jessica Biel more fashion-forward that Angelina Jolie?

The promo trail for ‘The A-Team’ is a gift that just keeps on giving, because here’s Jessica Biel looking red hot at the film’s London premiere last night. After impressing us with her Vionnet number on Monday, La Biel stayed true to her sophisticated style with this crimson Giambattista Valli gown, accented with a sleek belt and sexed up by a glimpse of her black bodysuit (saucy!). Ok, so it does look bizarrely like she’s growing out of the red carpet but considering we’ve seen Angelina Jolie and Kate Bosworth rocking all-red ensembles recently, we reckon she’s on to a winner. Plus, what better way to camouflage yourself should B.A Baracus get unruly?

Speaking of the Jolie, here she is exhibiting the very reason why Bridget Foley of fashion bible WWD described her style as without “a speck of imagination” earlier this week. Owch! Harsh words? Maybe, and yet we have to agree that despite being arguably the most beautiful - not to mention most fascinating - woman in the world, her sartorial steps often fall far from the fashion frontrunners.

Case in point: hopping from Tokyo to South Korea yesterday for the Asian press tour of her kick-ass flick ‘Salt’, Angie played it safe with the usual (long and black) fare. First up, a vintage Versace chiffon gown with an aristocratic high-neck - even an eyeful of thigh and all that back-flashing failed to cause a stir - before swapping for a shapeless bin bag-esque floor-sweeper. Yawns-ville or elegantly sleek? The jury’s still out...

So what say you? As such a major Hollywood player, should Angelina up her fashion game by getting more experimental or is she intriguing in whatever she wears? Perhaps as a busy globetrotter with a rainbow brood, we should give her a break, especially considering she evidently has enough savvy to colour co-ordinate her kids. Or are you so over Ange, you only have eyes for Ms Biel and her bold move?

Ooh, what a conundrum we find ourselves in! Please wade into the debate by expressing yourself in the space below...
