In a teaser for Jessica Alba’s Redbook cover interview, the magazine shared a “sneak peak” at a few of the star’s juiciest quotes. Spoiler alert: they’re not the least bit juicy.
In her interview, the actress tackles the hot-button issue of parent/child kissing. Jessica is passionate in her belief that parents should kiss their children on the mouth because “people allow dogs to lick at their mouths.”
While I’m not particularly offended by parents kissing their kids on the lips (except in the Stephanie Seymour kind of way, like when they’re adults), I’m not sure that “people allow dogs to lick at their mouths” really sells me on the whole thing. Because … are you French kissing your kids or is this just a mwah on the mouth. There is a difference. The difference is TONGUE. Keep reading »
White lace is a deceptive fabric. It kind of wants you to think it should only be worn during the warmer months, with sandals and bare legs and a tan. And it should be worn then, but you can totally also wear white lace in winter, with the addition of one very important piece — BLACK TIGHTS. Black tights help white lace come out of winter hibernation — just look at how chic Jessica Alba looks in this Victorian-inspired white lace swing dress, her vibe further winterized with a deep plum lip and long sleeves. Here’s how plus-size women can replicate her look… Keep reading »
I think I’ve made it pretty clear that one of my favorite recent trends has been the rise of the “fancy” sweatshirt, i.e. sweatshirts that are dressed/femmed up with statement necklaces, skirts and high heels. I am always psyched when a loungewear staple becomes suitable for work. One of the designers responsible for this trend is Kenzo, which makes the sweatshirt Jessica Alba is wearing above. Now, that fancy sweatshirt requires a fancy wallet with a whole lotta bills in it — seriously, Kenzo sweatshirts are over $300! — but luckily, the trend is so pervasive that I was able to find much more affordable tiger pullover, along with a faux leather skirt, statement necklace and sky-high hooties to complete the look. Get the details after the jump! Keep reading »
Jessica Alba + plaid + leopard print + moto jacket = my casual outfit wet dream. Sorry, was that a gross description? Whatever. Find out how to steal her look after the jump! Keep reading »
Truthfully, I could do a Style Stealer on Jessica Alba every damn day, that’s how good her street style is (and how often she’s photographed by the paps), but I restrain myself. Today, I could not. I love how hot she makes a fully buttoned white blouse, skinny jeans, and an oversized blazer. The jacket may be roomy, but everything else is formfitting. Sexy doesn’t mean you have to show skin. This is how you do casual menswear, ladies.

There was once a time where Jessica Alba was known for being an actress. At least I think there was, because “actress” is at the top of her resume. The truth is, Alba has become faaaaar better known to me for her seriously covetable style, particularly the outfits she puts together for those regular ol’ days where she’s juggling her dual roles as an actress and mom of two. Never was her approach to street style on such perfect display than this week, when Alba was in NYC for Fashion Week. As she bounced around town, shopping in Soho, attending runway shows at Lincoln Center, and taking her kids to the park, Jessica looked comfortable (for the most part), cool and soooo sartorially inspiring. Click on through to see 11 – eleven! – looks from Jessica Alba’s street style week in NYC!
Jessica Alba has two beautiful daughters — Honor, 4, and Haven, 1. As fantastic as she looks these days, however, you would never know that woman actually carried and gave birth to them. Her body is amazing. She’s not one of those celebrities who just magically bounced back to her pre-baby weight either. Instead she said it took discipline, and a special tactic that is questionable at best.
It was … girdles. In a recent interview with Net-a-Porter’s online magazine, she said she wore two of them day and night for three months. Day and night. “It was brutal; it’s not for everyone,” she said. “It was sweaty but worth it.” Girdles, seriously? That’s how she gets that bod? Read more on The Stir…
Don’t tell Gwyneth Paltrow this but there aren’t many differences between G and Jessica Alba these days. Both have lifestyles brands and both rarely act. Yes, G has that Oscar but is it as shiny when your career tapers off rather than continues to climb like Cate Blanchett’s or Kate Winslet’s? That’s another conversation for another day. The point is that since directing most of her energy to GOOP and her cookbooks Gwyneth has put herself out there to be compared to other celebrity moms doing the same thing. But in this business you’ve got to stand out. You’ve got to differentiate yourself to capture that perfect market and that’s exactly what Jessica Alba’s hustle is all about.
While out promoting her new book, Jessica Alba told “Good Morning America“ that she feels she’s more relateable than other celebrity moms who have more extreme lifestyles. “Alicia Silverstone is a vegan, so she’s the extreme side of it. Gwyneth Paltrow probably lives a very similar lifestyle, but I didn’t grow up with a bunch of money, so my tips are much more grounded: Repurposing things and making things at home.” Read more…
I used to get so excited when my mom would take me to the tiny JC Penney store in the next town over so I could get a new pair of Arizona Jean Company elastic waist denim shorts. Sometimes we would even stop for a Dairy Queen Blizzard on the way home. Best day ever. Jessica Alba took her daughter Honor on a very different version of a mother-daughter shopping trip this weekend, browsing a number of designer boutiques in Paris while wearing adorable coordinating coats, hats, and leather booties. So freakin’ cute. I wonder if Honor got a new pair of elastic waist denim shorts. Probably not. But I can dream. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
It’s not that we really want to cover Jessica Alba is Style Stealer nearly every damn week — but absolutely everything she walks out of the house wearing is damn near flawless. She wear a lot of basics but they always have a fresh spin. This coat, for example, has such cool details on the pockets and sleeves (alas, I imagine it’s designer and costs a pretty penny, so I got as close as possible), while her conservative satchel is taken up a notch or 10 with its bright red color. Find out how to steal the look for yourself, after the jump!
