Her natural auburn tresses were concealed beneath a bleach blonde wig styled in a bun with a voluminous side bang.

Jessica, who is playing a 1960s era housewife alongside Anne in the forthcoming film, finished off her costume with a pair of nude pumps.

After shooting scenes on the porch, Jessica and several production assistants walked to the next filming location.

Anne soon joined Jessica, but the 39-year-old Princess Diaries star did not appear to be in costume as she strolled beside her co-star in a pair of Birkenstock sandals.

She looked comfy in a white oversized shirt and matching shorts while carrying a script and a hot coffee in her hands.
