How Would YOU Wear It? Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba, here on MTV's TRL, is definitely not one of the actresses you'd expect to appear on How Would YOU Wear it? because her style is rather simple and non-dramatic. The only reason I chose to feature her is because of those black leggings.

In the right situation, footless tights can really accentuate an outfit and give it edge. But in some cases, like here, they clash, and consequently, uglify (is that even a word?!) the entire ensemble. Jessica's black strapless dress with metallic detailing is so feminine and pretty. I feel like the black leggings make it less girly and take the attention away from the darling frock.

I would have ditched the leggings and patent flats. I would have worn the dress, earrings and bracelets, and a pair of dark red peep-toe pumps. How would YOU wear it?

I would wear this without the leggings. I like the dress, but the leggings make her legs look shorter

for me, i would just loose the flats and get some reeally high bronze platform shoes. i would keep the leggings to make her dress look more casual.

Girl needs to work on her posture. I feel like every time I see her she is off balance!

Get rid of the leggings! She has great legs and throw some platform wedges on!

Definitely, those leggings and flats don't look good with that dress 0.0 Said that, I like them. I think they would look awesome with something else, like a denim skirt, or shorts..? I don't know, I have a pretty quirky style ;P

I would ditch the leggings and flats and wear heels in black or a metallic colour that goes with that dress.

Ditch the leggins - they should only be worn by young girls, like teenagers

I think the outfit is nice. I wouldn't wear it myself but I'm not as genetically blessed as Jessica Alba!!!

I really like the idea of a bronze wedge with this outfit. I think the leggins really take away from the dress, and it's such a great piece. It's a shame. I had seen this picture before this post and hadn't realized how cute it was because of the distraction of the leggins.

I like it too. I think Jess looks casual and cute here. Although I think she wears leggings too much AND I'm not a fan of them in general.

The dress is way to girly to worn so rough. She should have just worn the dress by itself.

The leggings and flats are horrible with this outfit. I like the rest of the outfit though; I'd probably go for some really strappy lace-up sandals or a dark bronze wedge.

i wouldn't have worn the leggings for one.the flats i agree with (besides being 1m75, wearing heels is really rare for me). but i would have added a thick leather belt,the kind that really shows off the waist-probably a goldish bronze color.the lips i would have made a glossy pink.

I'd probably wear it any way but THIS way. haha..I don't know if I'd go for red pumps...but I'd definitely ditch the leggings and flat shoes..I'd wear the dress with some matching metallic pumps to bring out the detail..Love that dress though!
