How Would YOU Wear It? Jessica Alba

Why must girls go and ruin a perfectly pretty outfit with leggings? Case in point: Jessica Alba at the Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer photocall in Madrid. Let's start from the top and work our way down shall we?

Her hair looks romantic; her face is flawless; arms are toned; color block mini dress is unique...and then all of a sudden, HALT! Leggings?

I would have ditched the leggings and let my stems breathe. Although her platforms are very Ashley Olsen, they don't quite go with the ensemble. Instead, I would have worn a pair of feminine peep-toe Mary Janes.

How would YOU Wear it?

although leggings are the epitome of trendiness, trends are indeed a definate part of jess's style. i think yes, she could have ditched them, but she still looks fabulous just the same

What's wrong with the leggings? Let's just ditch the shoes for those YSL platform peep-toe Mary Janes. Same idea but less S&M. I think she looks fabulous otherwise.

Everything is ok minus the shoes.

I'd toss the leggings, lose the platform shoes, and slip on some peep-toe Christian Louboutins.

why does she seem she's always trying to look "cool" these days... she should just stick to her elegant styles, she looks more put together that way :P i i had this dress, i would just loose the tights and maybe add some accessories with the same style as the shoes so it ties the outfir together... :)

I'd keep the leggings, add a t-shirt and a pair of sneaks and go to the gym.

I saw this on Pop and thought oh that would be perfect for a Fab 'How Would You Wear It?'!

PS: if i was a celeb, i would wear leggings under everything - simply to steer clear of the pap's obsession with crotch shots (unless i had an adorable hubby like Becks covering me up!!!)

when leggings first came back into style, i hate them. now that i've gotten used to them - i love them! however, i think most of the time they make an outfit look more youthful, so they work here for me.

Lose the leggings (a trend that I just can't get with) and the shoes. Add some flat gladiator gold/bronze sandals or a nice peep toe pump in a bronze color and some nice bracelets.

I think it works EXCEPT for the leggings. I like the shoes with this dress.

I have NEVER and WILL NEVER wear leggings. Period. There is no excuse to wear them, ABSOLUTELY NONE. They look terribly with almost everything and turn most women into sausages. They're hideous, IMHO. Then again, I don't like Ms. Alba either. I'm all about being really happy to be from whatever culture you're from and Jessica has had a lot of statements where she not only denies having a latin heritage, but where she says that she HATES being considered a latina actress. Yuck, inside and out! -JR

the shoes are a little too much. how do celebs wear shoes like that all the time without their feet looking hideous and deformed?

Leggins are okay..would be better without them though. Shoes are hideous!

I like the leggings but I'll opt for a neutral peep-toe wedge and add on some gold bangles...

there is a catch in wearing mini dress. You will end up always thinking are you showing your underpants or something else... tights help to make the dress less provocative and to make you feel that you can move and sit any way you want, without showing your intimate parts...

I love the look but not the colours, i would have kept the dress the same but the leggings brown and changed the shoes to brown peep toes like Sugarls sweeter 01 suggested
