Guest Editor: Jessica Alba
It’s almost silly how easy it is to love Jessica Alba. She is irrefutably gorgeous and routinely captivates us with her diverse on-screen roles, plus her innate personal style is a breath of fresh air on the Hollywood scene. Whether she steps out in a festive, nipped-waist frock for a red-carpet event, or is spotted running around town in perfectly pulled together off-duty looks, the silver-screen star embodies the sort of effortless polish that we love to showcase. Yet, Alba’s superb taste is not just relegated to her well-assessed wardrobe; as Revlon’s Brand Ambassador for nearly five years, the top-tier actress is also a bonafide beauty aficionado too! It’s no wonder then that we’d choose to make this yummy mummy our illustrious December Guest Editor—and just in time to coincide with her latest role in Little Fockers which hits theaters this month.
While Alba’s nonstop career has allowed her to portray a wide variety of personalities—everything from a hip-hop dancer with a heart of gold (how can you not love Honey?!) to an ingénue to a superhero to a tough-as-nails immigration officer in the recent thriller Machete—in the third installment of the hilarity-inducing Meet the Parents franchise, she flexes her acting muscles once again as an in-your-face pharmaceutical rep falling for Ben Stiller’s character. Yet, while Alba’s on-screen shenanigans may have us rolling on the floor, her sartorial picks are no laughing matter! This starlet is serious about style this season, starting with Narciso Rodriguez’s Resort 11 collection, which caught her eye with its ’90s-inspired flair. In light of the holidays, she’s also in the market for some party-perfect pieces like Preen’s Bridget Dress ($2032), which was another one of her stellar selections! As for the rest of what our enigmatic Guest Editor adores this festive month, well, you’re just going to have to read on to find out!
