It’s official! Jessica Biel is now Mrs. Justin Timberlake. The actress reportedly got hitched yesterday in Apulia, Southern Italy. There are no details on the wedding yet, but let’s assume it went smoothly with no prying paparazzi.

In light of this fantastic news, we thought we’d spotlight this gorgeous brunette today. When we think of Jessica Biel, we think of Seventh Heaven and her tough, chic persona.

Contrary to that perception, however, when it comes to dresses, the actress has been known to prefer romantic lace and feminine dresses. In addition, it seems Ms. Biel is a bit of a wildcard. Occasionally, she will pull something unexpected, making her all the more intriguing to watch.

We’ve rounded up some of Jessica’s best looks for the year. See how this beauty switches from mod to glam to romantic, and tell us which style suits her best:
