Before Jessica Biel became a married lady, every morning she hesitantly donned an overly-starched uniform with a name-patch that read "Please Be My Husband" on it. But now that she's got a ring on it, she can rock ANY outfit she wants! At least, according to her friend and stylist.

And her longtime stylist and friend Estee Stanley credits a certain accessory for Biel's noticeable confidence on the red carpet: her wedding ring. "I definitely think any woman changes after [she gets] married," Stanley tells PEOPLE. "I feel like she feels more secure and safe on the planet having found her partner."


Yes, we all know that before you are married there is a very strict dress code of flat-ironed blonde hair, low-cut shirts, tight pants, approximately 3" hoop earrings and a delicate watch. (If you were unaware of this, please refer to the latest installment of The Rules). Go on, Estee.

"This [marriage/style] security manifests itself in less behind-the-scenes fussing: "It's not ‘should I do this or should I do this?' It's like ‘Okay, great!'" she says."


Right. Except over the summer, Biel admitted to InStyle that Timberlake actually picks out her outfits for her.

I had no say whatsoever. I don't micromanage. He is fearless in his choices and has a real eye for design. And I'll be honest: He has better taste than I do. When I walk out of the closet after getting dressed in the morning, I'll go like this [turns palms upwards as if to say, ‘Well?']. And he goes like this [shakes head no]. Then he picks again. It's hilarious.

Wow, that does sound really liberating! Yay for sartorial autonomy. [People, HuffPo]

Speaking of The Rules for a second here — has anyone ever actually tried them? Because my personal experience, as a serious wallflower with self-esteem issues, is that I had to come on pretty fucking strong (in my mind) for a guy to even notice that I might be open to the idea of dating him. It was only after I started going out with my first (and only) boyfriend that I realized how many guys would've dated me if I'd been able to let on a little more. And yet The Rules seems to directly fly in the face of that. It comes at it from a man's perspective which is that they are the aggressors. The truth is that they don't pounce until you practically paint them a sign saying, "It's okay to ask me out."

The advantage to this, for me, is that I'm with someone I genuinely like and that our relationship came out of an initial friendship, which is good. I'm still too shy to really handle "dating," given how much I seize up during job interviews, and I can't stand to pretend to be coy or flirty when I'm just not.

So wouldn't The Rules backfire in most cases? Or am I missing something?
