About six months ago, I made a somewhat ill-advised purchase of an expensive pair of wedge sneakers. I wore them a couple times and then they’ve been sitting in my closet ever since, even as wedge sneakers have become more ubiquitous. I just didn’t quite know how to wear them in a way that was casual and yet feminine. Seeing how Jessica Alba is wearing hers — with a menswear-inspired double-breasted coat, skinny jeans, and lots of cream — I think I finally get it. Check out how to get the look yourself, after the jump! Best of all, these sneaks are less than $40! Keep reading »
Jessica Alba does casual so well. Here she is, running from a breakfast date at Urth Cafe in Los Angeles, to the hospital (no idea why she’s going to the hospital) looking cool as ever. You can’t see it here, but the back of her leather jacket features a giant studded cross. We didn’t grab that exact one — I think it’s Balmain and a zillion dollars — but we did find another similarly studded jacket, along with all the other elements you’ll need to pull off this look. Check out our recommendations after the jump! Keep reading »
Jessica Alba braved the frantic crowds at Target to do some last minute holiday shopping, and she looked fabulous (as usual!) in a studded leather jacket, star print jeans, a lime green bag, and a royal blue manicure that I want to copy, like, now. The best part about this outfit? Those sharp spikes on her shoulders aren’t just a trendy fashion statement–they’re an effective defense against the crazy shoppers who are prepared to knock you over for the last Cinderella Barbie. If you’re headed to the mall this weekend, take a cue from Jess and wear studs. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
I am forever envious of Jessica Alba‘s uncanny ability to always look like she’s being professionally backlit (is she?). The woman just glows! Of course, I think her makeup might have a little something to do with it, too: pearly peach-brown shadow paired with a berry lip stain is a fresh look that’s a few steps above “neutral,” which is a welcome change from winter’s matte smoky eyes and dark wine lipsticks. If you, too, want to look like you’re perpetually illuminated by candlelight this holiday season, and I know you do, let’s break it down after the jump … Keep reading »
When loafers and smoking slippers started showing up in women’s shoe sections, I was skeptical. Was this Hugh Hefner-inspired footwear really going to catch on?

The beauty of an all-black outfit is that, no matter the pieces or the way you choose to wear them, you just can’t go wrong. It’s an easy way to look instantly pulled together without much thought or effort. Needless to say, I love a good monochromatic look, especially with just a touch of shine or color, and this hip version on Jessica Alba is right up my alley. Asymmetrical hems make simple layers more interesting, and a faux-shearling vest is the epitome of luxe (and warmth!). Snag Jess’s style, after the jump… Keep reading »
Microsoft officially unveiled Windows Phone 8 yesterday, and it did so with a special celebrity guest: Jessica Alba. Microsoft invited the actress to tout the phone’s “Kid’s Corner” feature, which allows parents to control what apps kids have access to, touting her as a “great example of the kind of people who we think Windows Phone will appeal to,” as a mom and entrepreneur. “This is the best tech crowd I’ve ever been in front of,” Alba said, according to CNET.

Katie Couric revealed last week that she struggled with bulimia in her early 20s—and sadly, she’s far from the only celebrity to have battled an eating disorder. The Huffington Post rounds up a dozen:
- Jessica Alba: She once said that she had trouble adjusting to “a woman’s body with natural fat in places.” “I freaked out,” she said, and her obsession turned into an eating disorder.
- Katharine McPhee: The American Idol and Smash star revealed that she struggled with bulimia for five years—and that it almost destroyed her vocal chords. Read more…
