Jessica Alba went for a polished look at the Balmain runway show on Wednesday in Paris, wearing a black wraparound minidress with a plunging neckline, puffed shoulders and a long attachment on the skirt.
She paired her soft look with matching gloves, tights, pointed-toe heels with a shimmering diamond-patterned embellishment and a black embossed top-handle bag. Alba attended the show among a slew of other A-list stars, including Jourdan Dunn, Camille Razat and Ashley Graham.
Alba, who is known for her roles in the 2003 movie “Honey” and starring as Susan Storm in the 2005 film “Fantastic Four,” has been making her mark in the business industry.
The entrepreneur — named one of WWD, FN and Beauty Inc’s 50 Women in Power for 2022 — cofounded the brand “The Honest Company” in 2012 and has since taken the company public. The brand offers clean baby products, makeup, skin care and wellness supplements.
In 2022, to the Golden Heart Awards, Alba received The Michael Kors Award for Outstanding Philanthropy. To the event, she dazzled in a black gown held together with an oversize pin. She accessorized the toga-inspired ensemble with a bracelet cuff and a standout gold clutch. From 2019 to 2020, Alba starred alongside Gabrielle Union in “L.A.’s Finest,” as Nancy McKenna, a working mom and detective. The series, which ran for two seasons, was a spin-off of the “Bad Boy” franchise.
