Jessica Alba covers Marie Claire June 2012

Jessica Alba is the June 2012 cover girl for Marie Claire, marking her 3rd cover for the magazine (previously in August 2005 and March 2008). High quality scans will be added as soon as I get my hands on the magazine. In the meantime check out the interview highlights, outtakes and behind the scenes footage below.

When it comes to really famous people, the ones we identify in our brains as belonging to a special breed of superhumans—glossy, glam, and perpetually camera-ready—it’s easy to forget that, to those in their inner orbit, they’re actually just normal, regular people. Somebody somewhere sees George Clooney’s number pop up on the caller ID and says, “Him again?” Or, as is the case today, when a visitor arrives at a small, modern Los Angeles building in an industrial part of town for a meeting with Jessica Alba, the guy she shares an office with shrugs indifferently and mumbles, “I think she’s upstairs?” before returning to his feverish typing.

These nondescript offices are the headquarters of The Honest Company, a kind of Amazon for nontoxic, environmentally friendly baby products and household supplies that Alba launched earlier this year. Alba loves coming to work here, a paparazzi-free zone where she’s absolved of having to preen and pose. It’s obvious as she bounds down the stairs to meet me that she savors the regular-ness of having an office, replete with coffeemaker and a fridge filled with yesterday’s lunches. To the cubicle jockeys who inhabit the space, she’s “just Jessica,” another clock-puncher who parks her SUV (outfitted with two car seats for daughters Honor, 4, and Haven, 9 months) alongside everyone else’s, and who shares mommy war stories without feeling exposed or judged—like the time she and her husband, film producer Cash Warren, found Honor lying in her crib eating particles of her diaper, which had fallen apart. The event crystallized Alba’s interest in safe, sustainable products, including disposable diapers, which The Honest Company delivers monthly to subscribers for upwards of $80 per month.

“I started working on this three and a half years ago,” Alba tells me. “I took a year off from acting when I had Honor, and I was home with her, diapering her, cleaning up after her, and I had a real frustration that I couldn’t find healthy, nontoxic, and affordable products that actually worked. So I decided I needed to do something about it while my family and friends have young children.”Yet despite Alba’s best efforts to come across as just another mom, she is—let’s face it—anything but. As she leads me to a conference room, I can’t help but stare at her enviable form and wonder: Is that what jet-black J Brand skinny jeans are supposed to look like on a human body? Would those Margiela for Opening Ceremony black boots make my legs look that long? If I ran out and bought an identical rose-gold channel-set diamond ring that spans two fingers, would that technically make me a stalker or just an admirer?

 

Though Alba clearly relishes being a businesswoman, her latest role is as a fashion darling, a woman whose every ensemble, whether for a movie premiere or sandbox play-date, is photographed and quickly dispatched to celebrity magazines and blogs that feverishly monitor her unique sartorial choices. Despite what the tabloids suggest about the symbiotic relationship between celebrities and the fashion world, actresses like Alba—true trendsetters—are rare. It could be argued that the fashion flock are harder to impress than the Hollywood machine. But thanks to her infallible Cali-cool style and fluid transition from streetwear to couture, honed from years of red-carpet swanning, Alba is a favorite among the most rarefied of designers—Alber, Donatella, Narciso, to name just a few—who decide whom they dress (and not the other way around). She’s managed to totally remake her image, trading her postpubescent-boy fan base for fashion’s überchic style arbiters and the legions who follow them. “She is an extraordinary beauty,” says Narciso Rodriguez. “Her style is her own, and it has made her someone to watch.”

“She has a perfect body, sexy with curves,” effuses Donatella Versace. “She is true to herself. She always looks fresh, never vulgar.”

Alba, 31, has come a long way. Early in her career, she was often showcased in Maxim-ready looks, from jeans and halter tops to body-hugging dresses, that played up her lean yet impossibly curvy 5’7″ frame to eye-popping effect. “I had a show [Fox’s Dark Angel] that premiered when I was 19,” Alba explains. “And right away, everyone formed a strong opinion about me because of the way I was marketed. I was supposed to be sexy, this tough action girl. That’s what people expected.”

Even when she dressed demurely, her killer body always took center stage. “I felt like I was being objectified, and it made me uncomfortable,” she concedes. “I wanted to be chic and elegant!”

In recent years, owing to marriage, motherhood, and the maturity that comes from more than a decade in Hollywood, Alba has grown more assured of herself and how to work her figure in her own way. “Now that I’m older, I’ve learned how to own it, but I’m still not very overt,” she says. “There are some women who dress for men. I dress for myself. It took me some time to get here. Being a mom and feeling grown-up have helped. Now if I’m going to wear something short, it has to have a high neck or a little sci-fi toughness to it, an edge.”

Jessica Alba at the First West Coast FABB Fashion and Beauty Blog Conference

Jessica Alba, attended the First West Coast FABB Fashion and Beauty Blog Conference, hosted by Lucky Magazine in Santa Monica on April 30, 2012 to talk about the Honest Company.  Click on the previews above to view more photos.

Jessica Alba might be known best as a Hollywood A-lister, but the actress spends a ton of time these days sourcing good-for-the-earth/good-for-your-baby products to go in her online shop, The Honest Company. Today at FABB, Alba and her business partner, Christopher Gavigan, sat down with Lucky EIC Brandon Holley to discuss everything from eco aesthetics to…well…poop:

  • On the need for nice-looking, earth-friendly products: “Why do the organic things have to be brown or beige or oatmeal? Why can’t it be cute?”
  • On the importance of petroleum-free diapers (besides the obvious ones): “If your baby is like mine and decides to eat her diaper, our diapers won’t hurt her.”
  • On the power of bloggers: “People who used to want to invest in wall street now want to invest in people like you. Investing in good ideas and investing in women is important today.”
  • On balancing work and family: “I had two hours of sleep last night. Thank god for makeup. I wish there were 48 hours in a day and two of me. I always feel like I compromise.”

Alba is wearing an Alice & Olivia sweater (buy a similar top here), Topshop trousers (buy a similar pair here) and Giuseppe Zanotti heels (shop ’em here).

Jessica Alba out in Seoul, South Korea – April 23

Jessica Alba was photographed arriving at a hotel in southern Seoul on Monday afternoon (April 23). Below is an interesting article from thejakartapost.com who are speculating that Alba is overseas for business. #getmoney

Rumors are spreading about U.S. actress Jessica Alba signing business deals with Korean companies during her unexpected Seoul trip. Alba was spotted at Kolon’s fashion unit in Gangnam on Monday and also at a celebrity party hosted by CJ E&M vice chairwoman Lee Mi-kyung later in the evening, according to reports.

Kolon is one of the country’s leading textile and fashion companies and creates products for fashion and accessories brands like Couronne, Qua and Elord. CJ E&M is the entertainment and media arm of CJ Group, which owns several cable channels and movie and online game production companies.

The 30-year-old celebrity had an interview with the country’s renowned emcee Baek Ji-yeon on the same day at CJ E&M’s head office in Sangam-dong. CJ officials confirmed that the taping of “Baek Ji-yeon’s People Inside,” took place on Monday afternoon, but did not reveal when the show will air.

Korean emcee Baek, known to be a friend of Alba’s, requested the interview with the American celebrity on a visit to her hotel in Gangnam. The celebrity okayed her request without hesitation, according to reports.

A CJ official said Alba and the CJ vice chairwoman know each other and that Alba attended the party at the invitation of the chairwoman.

“We have no idea how they became friends,” the official added.

Alba, who is currently in Korea on holiday with her family, surprised her fans here by visiting a club and a bar with her husband Cash Warren in southern Seoul over the weekend.

The Hollywood star’s surprise visit to Seoul was exposed online shortly after on Twitter along with pictures taken by people at the club in Nonhyeon-dong and the Apgujeong-dong bar.

Jessica Alba Attends Opening of Tommy Hilfiger’s flagship Store in Tokyo

To celebrate the opening of Asia’s largest Tommy Hilfiger store,  Jessica Alba joined the designer in Tokyo for a special guest appearance.
Helping to opening the new flagship Tommy Hilfiger store in Tokyo, Alba posed for pictures with Tommy Hilfiger himself. As the face behind one of the world’s most successful fashion brands, Hilfiger, 61, wore a pair of fire engine-red pants emblazoned with a slew of thick black racing stripes on the bottom along with a suit jacket, tie and a pair of glossy burgundy loafers.

Alba’s husband, Cash Warren, and Hilfiger’s wife Dee were also in attendance and posed for photos at the opening. The 11,000-square-foot store is located at the intersection of two of the city’s busiest streets and features antique canoes, an authentic New York fire escape, vintage metal signs and leather wrestling benches.

Hilfiger said, “We’ve been in this marketplace for 25 years and we’ve been known to be a casual sportswear company. Now we’re bringing the entire lifestyle to Japan.” He also noted that he admires the Japanese people’s way of building an identity out of experimenting with fashionable trends.

“I think the Japanese people are more daring because they’re not afraid to wear pattern with pattern. They’re not afraid of color so that’s exciting to us,” he said.

Variations on traditional Tommy Hilfiger varsity jackets, cricket sweaters and polo shirts will all be unveiled in store. A special “retro range” has also been created for the growing Japanese market. Click on the previews above to view more photos
