She normally favours a more demure style of dressing, often opting to cover up in shift dresses and trousers. But Jessica Biel eschewed her good girl image on Tuesday night, vamping up the sex appeal in a daring black Gucci gown featuring a halter neck style that allowed for a glimpse of skin at the sides.
The 30-year-old newlywed was attending the LA premiere of her latest film Hitchcock. Usually, she would be gracing the red carpet with her stunning co-star Scarlett Johansson, but with her colleague unable to attend, she braved the flashbulbs solo.

In a bid to ensure attention remained on her dramatic gown, which boasted oversizded ruffles on the chest, Jessica had pulled her locks into a sophisticated updo teamed with a quiff. And she opted for a natural make-up look, keeping it light on the eyes while sporting a lick of pink lipstick.
She was joined by co-star Helen Mirren, who was elegant in a black lace dress with a gold brocade trim.
Jessica had a quick change before the after party, stepping back out in a white satin minidress that showed off her toned pins.
Sunday night marked her first red carpet appearance since her wedding to Justin Timberlake.
The star looked stunning in New York in a dove grey Oscar de la Renta two piece outfit with three quarter sleeves and a loose-fitting cut which flattered her slender figure.
She completed the look with Manolo Blahnik shoes, Lorraine Schwartz diamond shaped drop earrings and her dazzling diamond engagement ring.
Scarlett, who split up from her boyfriend Nate Taylor last month, kept it short in a black tiered minidress with green leaf print. The 27-year-old actress teamed the Rodarte number with Gucci peep-toe boots and a dramatic deep-red lip colour.
Meanwhile 67-year-old Helen, who takes on the role of Hitchcock's wife Alma, threatened to steal the limelight from the two younger actresses by wowing the crowds in a black lace gown with gold detailing.
The premiere was Jessica's first public appearance since her intimate Italian wedding at the magnificent Borgo Egnazia resort in Puglia. Speaking exclusively to HELLO!, Justin revealed he had serenaded his bride to the altar.
"I figured if there was something I was going to be able to offer, it would be to sing her down the aisle. Grown men were weeping. Hopefully it's because I didn't sound bad."
The couple also explain why they chose Italy ("We love to eat!") and how they were "so excited to have this moment and share it with our family and friends," who included close pals comedian Jimmy Fallon, SNL star Andy Samberg, musician Timbaland and Jessica's 7th Heaven co-star Beverley Mitchell.
For their honeymoon, the newlyweds opted for the African wildlife as they were spotted in Kilimanjaro International airport in Tanzania just two days after their big day. The pair reportedly stayed at the luxurious Sasakwa Lodge and enjoyed adventurous game drives with professional guides and a picturesque hot air balloon safari across the sprawling plains of the Serengeti.
And although they were enjoying the happiest days of their lives, the couple took time to send out support to those affected by Superstorm Sandy, which happened whilst the couple were on holiday.
