Jessica Alba Goes for Gold

Machete Premiere held at The Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles, California on August 25th, 2010. Jessica Alba                                            Fame Pictures, Inc

The L.A premiere of the action thriller movie, Machete kicked off with a bang at the recently restored Orpheum Theatre in downtown L.A to which the stars of the film arrived in style in twenty bad-ass authentic low rider cars.

Jessica Alba led the pack with co-star Danny Trejo and looked amazing in an action-packed outfit herself, comprising of a black and gold sequined zigzag mini dress which she matched with black Christian Louboitin Tinazata cut-out booties.

But I was having a bizarre case of déjà vu once I set my eyes on her couture. Where had I seen it before? AH yes! Rihanna rocked a similar style on the July cover of Elle magazine in a purple and gold beaded silk version that put the spark in ‘sparkle’. Sharp edged broad shoulders, glittery material and bold colorful prints could only mean one brand – BALMAIN.

Every single look in the Balmain collection looks like a piece of abstract art and you can mark my words that the red carpet will see more of this style of dresses this season. But if you’re planning to steal Jessica’s look, here is what you should do to pull it off: Keep your hair and make-up casual but catchy. The hot 29 year old mom styled her hair in loose sexy waves which matched the zigzags on her dress too. She chose to tint her cheeks with a rosy brown blush and wore nude pink lip gloss giving off a natural fresh aura.

Moreover when you wear a show-stopping dress such as Alba’s, everything else should be kept simple including your bling. Of course a necklace would have looked rather garish with those bold prints so the Fantastic Four actress opted to stack a few stylish bangles from Aandra Neen to complete the gold look which comprised of a pewter and gold bracelet with pyramid studs and a number of thin pewter bangles with delicate gold detailing throughout.

Her wrist jewelry and cutout heels reminded me of Julia Roberts’s style for the New York premiere of Eat, Pray, Love and seeing both the leading ladies’ fashion approaches, four things are crystal clear:

Numero uno: Dresses with sharp edges are definitely here to stay and they give off a modern sophisticated look to your wardrobe.

No. 2: Cutout heels are all the rage and if you do not own a pair yet, then get yours now, pronto!

No. 3: Cover up with style with those long sleeves and high necklines to stay fashionable for the spotlight as well as the climate.

No. 4: Flaunt your unique pieces of jewelry one at a time such as a single bib necklace or that cocktail ring or a number of bangles stacked together like Jessica.

So there you go ladies – few of the vital trends for the fall with a little help from our Hollywood fashionistas. Keep rocking with style in the meantime and see you in the next blog post mi chicas!
