Again another new photoshoot. Or “you supply us, Mr. Karfík”: D I like this photoshoot more than Harper’s Bazaar. Photos are great, they are color and black and white. Jessica smiles at them and is so natural. Simply perfection alone. Somehow I can’t find any contradictions, so if you happen to have something, come on with it. :) I can’t speak French, but it certainly says Jessica’s business at Honest Company and her family. At least I think so, if not, then you can definitely correct me :)
Jessica appeared on the headline of the November issue of The Edit, for which she also shot a new photoshoot. Tory Burch interviewed her to help her in the beginning of her business. The article is titled “Lonely Wolf” and the title reads “Criticism of Me with * re!”, Jessica talked about the challenge of starting a business and what it is like to be a woman in company management. “People in Hollywood underestimate me. It’s hard to be taken seriously when people know you through acting. ”
Jessica Alba is on the cover of the October SELF issue . In this issue she talked about the company, exercise and so on. Something little translated from the magazine, it will be such a shortened version, miss something, edit something so that it makes at least a little sense.
There’s a lot of celebrities with lifestyle brands, and then there’s Jessica Alba. In three and a half years, Jessica has turned into a successful entrepreneur and co-owner of The Honest Company, which produces eco-friendly products for personal use. Every customer from Target stores has tried it themselves, their products are on the shelves. More than 120 kinds of products, from household cleaners, to toothpastes, vitamins and diapers, all without chemicals. Albums and co-owners earned enough. The expansion to South Korea and China also worked, so the company is worth over $ 1.7 billion. /..more you can read in the magazine whose scans are in the gallery /
Photos for the magazine were shot by a very handy photographer Gilles Bensimon, who had already shot some shoots with her before, for example for the February issue of ELLE magazine in 2008 and the November issue of ELLE in 2006 . This time it was a change, not Elle but Self, as written above. And now the photos, be sure to look at them, because Jessica looks great again. I added both scans and photoshoot.
Jessica Alba is InStyle’s February cover girl! In this issue, the 31-year-old actress talks about the many new skills she’s added to her resume over the years: mother, wife, organic baby food expert, and author among them. A year ago, she launched Honest Company with environmental specialist Christopher Gavigan, in the hopes of educating people on the benefits of healthy, organic products for children. “Creating this company was something I had to do,” Alba tells InStyle of the venture, which has already attracted $27 million from investors. “We’re completely transparent. All the goods we make are high-performance—and safe—but they’re also beautifully designed, so people will be drawn to them, too.” In March, Alba puts pen to paper in her first book, The Honest Life, a how-to handbook she co-wrote with Gavigan on filling your home with eco-friendly and safe products. Her role as activist started as her family grew: She has two children—Honor, 4, and Haven, 1—with producer husband Cash Warren, the love of her life. “I just knew when I met him that I was going to know him forever,” says Alba. “It was weird; he instantly felt like family. It was so easy. I’d never felt like that with anyone. I was usually pretty self-conscious, minding my p’s and q’s, very aware of every time my fork hit the plate when I was having dinner on a date. With him, there was none of that. We got each other. We’re kindred spirits.” For more of our exclusive interview, flip to page 194 of the February issue—or download it on your iPad, Nook, or Droid tablet—on newsstands Friday, January 11.
On Landing the cover: “It’s an honor to be asked to be a part of SELF magazine. I really love what SELF stands for and what it does for women and women’s confidence. I loved the clothes at the shoot—I thought they were really fun and colorful.”
Her Cause: Alba’s company, Honest, makes and sells eco-friendy baby, bath, body and household products. A portion of proceeds goes to children and families in need via Baby2Baby.
How you can help: Call your senator to support the Safe Chemicals Act, which would require testing of chemicals in household products. Or visit Honest.com for info on Baby2Baby, her company’s nonprofit partner.
The Spark: “I found my daughter Honor sitting in her crib, eating these tiny beads from the inside of her diaper. They were all over her face. It was a moment of terror.”
The Harsh Reality: “Thankfully, Honor was OK, but it was so crazy, and I felt guilty afterward. I worried that I’d poisoned my daughter—and these were eco-diapers! I found ones that seemed safer, but they leaked, so I had to use two at once, and they were already so expensive. The more research I did, the more irritated I got. Most parents don’t have time to do all this research—they need a company with products they can trust. I wanted to create that.”
The Hope: “If you have toxic chemicals in your dish soap, laundry detergent, lotion, mattress and food, they get into your system and add up. It’s cumulative. My philosophy is that if we can try to eliminate all those little bits along the way, everyone will have a better shot. I want people to know that they have the power to make different choices for themselves and for their family. That could save lives.”
The Advantage: “I can’t think of a better way to spend my work life than on a movie set. But with people following me when I go out and everyone wanting me to endorse things, I thought, I can either go into a cave and hide or use my access to influence something I’m passionate about. So I turned the attention into a positive by offering safe, nontoxic, affordable but high-quality products for families, all from one place.”
The Passion: “It took me 3 1/2 years to launch The Honest Company. When things didn’t go smoothly, I’d get really upset. I worried that I was wasting so much time and money! But my husband, Cash, would tell me, ‘You didn’t waste anything. Look how much you’ve learned.’ His perspective kept me going.”
