Jessica Biel may be one of the most stylish women in Hollywood, but that may be thanks to her fiancé Justin Timberlake.

Biel, 30, tells InStyle in its August cover story that Timberlake, 31, helps choose her outfits – and picked out her gorgeous engagement ring without any input from her.

“I had no say whatsoever [in the ring]. I don’t micromanage,” she tells InStyle, on newsstands Friday. “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.”

Adds Biel, “When I walk out of the closet after getting dressed in the morning, I’ll go like this [turns palms upward as if to say, ‘Well?’] And he goes like this [shakes his head no]. Then he picks again. It’s hilarious.”

Fashion feedback aside, Biel says her advice for having a happy relationship is “letting go of the little stuff. You can’t let it get to you.” Plus, being with an inspiring person is key to her happiness. “It is important to me to have a partner who is loving and fun – someone who inspires me,” she says. “And he must be a good person.”

Asked about whether she plans to raise children someday in Los Angeles, where she and Timberlake currently live in the Hollywood Hills, the actress who was raised in Colorado says, “I would like those future little people to have the experience I had, in some capacity. It was fun. I love Colorado; I’ve always thought that could be a possibility for me.”
