Jessica Alba Overcame 'Bikini Girl' Misconceptions to Create Successful Honest Company

Jessica Alba Overcame 'Bikini Girl' Misconceptions to Create Successful Honest Company

Jessica Alba is gorgeous in grey while attending the 2015 Forbes Women’s Summit: Transforming The Rules Of Engagement held at Pier 60 on Wednesday (June 10) in New York City.

The 34-year-old actress was joined on the red carpet by Colbie Caillat and Ivanka Trump.

During the summit, Jessica chatted about overcoming people’s misconceptions about her before bringing success to The Honest Company.

“People just saw me as this girl in a bikini in movies kicking butt — maybe not the brightest bulb. It took three and a half years of condescending nods and pats on the back of ‘good luck’, or ‘go back to endorsing things or go do a perfume,’” Jessica shared.

Later in the day, Jessica donned a black dress while picking up some snacks in the Big Apple.

FYI: Jessica is wearing a Narciso Rodriguez dress and Casadei shoes at the summit.
