Guess what? It's time for another good 'ol fashion faceoff! And Jessica Biel and Kerry Washington are the two lovely ladies who happen to find themselves going head to head in this week's who-wore-it-better battle.
Biel, who we'll soon be able to call Mrs. Justin Timberlake, stepped out in the Christian Dior Resort 2013 frock first at the 2012 ESPY Awards in July. The "Total Recall" actress looked almost ballerina-like in a white version of the dress — clearly, she's got wedding bells on the brain — which accentuated her tiny waist. A retro ponytail, Nicholas Kirkwood shoes (featuring a fun neon yellow heel), and a huge diamond engagement ring completed the 30-year-old's simple-yet-chic ensemble.Read More »from Kerry Washington vs. Jessica Biel — Fashion Faceoff

"I was reluctant because he is such an influential guy, and what if it didn't work out," she admits. "Our first date, I was so nervous that I just sat there and interviewed him with questions like, 'Are you loyal?' and 'Are you close to your family?'" Two years later, Hough couldn't be happier. "I'm very in love, and it feels great," the 24-year-old shares. "I feel like I'm more comfortable in my own skin. You see me instead of all the makeup and hair."Read More »from Julianne Hough: ‘I was reluctant’ to date Ryan Seacrest
