Jessica Alba - MET Costume Institute Gala 2009

Jessica Alba hits the “Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion” Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

The 28-year-old Fantastic actress paired her Jason Wu dress with custom-made Bruno Frisoni for Jason Wu. The shoes, based on the design from Frisoni’s Fall 09 collection were revised with a new color palate specially for Wu. The 4″ heel with platform base and overlapping elastic straps is a signature of the French shoe designer.

Alba finished off her look with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels: “Cotillon” earrings with 51.08 carats of cabochon drop Zambian emeralds and diamonds, the 1967 Estate “Natte” bracelet of 44 carats of diamonds, a 1930 Estate bracelet with 8 carats of diamonds and the “Folie des Pres” ring and bracelet of diamonds and pink and mauve sapphires.

  • sarah

    WTF happened to her sense of style?

  • jill

    Is this the best she can do? lipstick is wrong, rapunzel hairstyle is boring, black tights and shoes are hideous…basically everything…she needs to go away

  • Heyacrazyy

    okay the dress will be fine if she friking loses the tights
    seriously, whats with her and tights these days

  • andamentothat

    Braided hair doesnt do anyone good.. (remember Aniston at the oscars).. The earrings are similar to Angelina’s oscar ones bit these are competing with her top.. The lipstick is too bright for a glittery dress.. and i have no idea why anyone would think black tights work with this sort of a dress?? this is a D grade at best..

  • k

    Why is she at this event? She looks AWFUL!

  • stacy

    Not loving the dance class tights or Princess Leia hair.

  • me

    Love the dress but agree with all that the tights are awful. I like her hair like that aslo.

  • voice of reason

    Totally agree with those that made comments about the tights that just does not work.

  • lostchick

    Is she a bartender at these events? You make it seem as though she’s famous or something. What is it that she does? Walk around with a surly face with the out of work husband. Who does the earning? Is it that baby doing commercials or what,

  • jill

    she’s had that hairstyle since Saturday at the Revlon walk/run event…it means she hasn’t washed her hair in days and you could tell up close…gross

  • [~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]


  • anon

    The dress would be prettier if it were a floor length dress. The top is pretty and goes well with her coloring.

  • Sara

    yuck! She looks awful.. rehire a stylist!

  • celebrityobsessed.

    Don’t like the earrings, make up, hair or tights. Dress is cute though.

  • mertz

    i like this dress. i think this dress FITS her. her personality, her style. yay jason wu. nay to the make up though.

  • terri

    I’ve lost all interest in her. blah

  • Alicia

    Again another one who should save her money and go buy some talent. That dress is god awful and she just looks like she just crawled out of a hole.

  • Naima

    Wow she has fallen off, even though she’s talentless, she used to be a lot more confident and had somewhat of a spark in her eyes. These days her facial expressions really show how miserable she is. The two close ups say it all, the fake smile and then that constant empty look she gives, the lipstick color and the dress are cute, the shoes and tights are hidious and make her look like an old woman.

  • what happen

    1. She is ugly and has no talent. All movies I have seen with her suck except the one where I fell asleep.
    2. This dress is horrible – the style and color is very cheap and poorly designed. Can do better at Macy’s.
    3. The tights and the shoes continue the ugly train.
    4. The hairstyle is from Sound of Music Von Trap family except she can’t be in this family because she is a kunnt biaotch and can’t sing.
    5. The purse does not match.

  • mimilala

    Eww…just all wrong…

  • ladyj19

    Her face is just too shiny!!! The tights are too much!!!! I thought she would look good in anything she puts on, wrong. Jessica darling, can I fashion u!!!! Now where is ur swagger??? Yes dear I saw u on J-Leno.

  • identified

    NO !!
    this was the worst dress among all ..
    what happened to u jessica??
    the elegant great sense of style .. remember ??
    even the hair and make up are a disaster ..
    oh this is so sad =(

  • mmm

    well she looks fine… i guess
    nothing special about her…. sadly!

  • http://Thedressisadorable YES!

    This is ridiculous. She doesn’t look like a movie star (and can’t act, too, so without the look, there’s nothing left.

  • http://Thedressisadorable YES!

    The hair and the entire look is awful.

    BTW, is her face turning more white? WTF?!

  • zoe

    the dress is beautiful but jessica kinda ruins it with the hair and the black tights. love the matching of the pink clutch and the lipstick. but the hair and tights have to go! jessica’s style has disappeared. compare this with her oscar appearance in the golden dress…

  • teddy

    Like alba but no to the dress.

  • Oh Dear

    Bad hair … Bad posture!

  • Mariah

    If you compare the dress she wore on 2006 with this one, she has gone to worse. I miss the old Jessica!

  • lola

    She looks hideous. She shouldn’t be there just like Bilson. These dumb girls aren’t even relevant anymore. When was the last time she was in a GOOD movie?

  • bella

    After viewing several of the pics from this event . . .was it lets see who can look the ugliest night!

  • Queenoftrashin

    LOVE the Sister Mary Elephant stockings!

  • Dee

    Not feeling it at all!…and this dress looks very familiar, i know i’ve seen it or something like it on another celebrity!

  • Angela



    Bad outfit on a big mouth bad actress!

  • mimi


  • Tdani

    Ok, with a short dress like that at least leave the hair DOWN and not in a twisted braid wrapped around the head. There’s nothing flowing or continuous about this look which makes it bad.

  • lakers fan in boston

    hating the lipstick, i think only a few ppl can pull the red lipstick off these days
    i also agree i think that would have been a much cuter outfit if not for the tights
    dont like the top part of the dress tho
    never i mean the hot pink lipstick =-p

  • cosi

    80′s leftover

  • tom

    if a celebrity is’nt supplying constant drama by getting hooked on drugs or having an eating disorder or some such public disfunction people feel the need to bitch about them, if only more of holywoods stars were as down to earth as Jessica Alba, I think she’s the perfect role model for young girls, and she would make a great first lady….not too sure on Cash for Prez though

  • a perfect nobody

    she could be the new ava peron….we may soon need of such figures of hope again.

  • a perfect nobody

    she reminds me of ava peron

  • Divia

    Guys stop saying crap things on her !! She’s the most beautiful ever !!! Jessica rocks!!!!!!

  • Vestes de Cuisine

    Jess looks good. At least there was someone who didn’t think it was Halloween.
