“Machete” LA Premiere – Jessica Alba In Balmain

Absolutely gorgeous.

Jessica Alba became one of the front runners for BDOTW yesterday night at the LA Premiere for “Machete”.

With shoulders that sharp this look is of course by Balmain.

I know many of you are o.v.e.r this type of bold shouldered look, but I love Jessica’s black and gold sequined zigzag patterned mini dress.

Her show-stopping figure-hugging dress was paired with Christian Louboutin Tinazata 120 cut-out boots.

She kept accessories minimal with a few bangles and her hair was styled in loose sexy waves.

Do you agree that Jess is a BDOTW contender?

    I would’ve liked to see her in one of the beautiful brocade pantsuits from the fall collection, I could see her looking amazingly good in one of those. This, while looking good, just isn’t particularly interesting of her, as we’ve all seen it before on so many different people.

      No it wasn’t a runway dress

  3. maria August 27, 2010 at 13:41 #

    YES! I have never seen her look this AMAZING, everything works- the style, the colours, the make-up. Wow!

    Oh my God, this dress is awesome! Love the way she wore it. Also, her hair is really beautiful.

    Definite BDOTW.

    SHe looks so nice… and so effortlessly chic.

    I somehow dont like it.. i really like the dress n the shoes but not on Jessica.. i think she lacks the attitude this dress needs…

  10. N August 27, 2010 at 02:41 #

    I love when J. Alba does edgy!

  11. Linda August 27, 2010 at 02:16 #

    YES – she looks great and amazingly makes this dress look fresh. The colours are perfect for her.

  12. KateS August 27, 2010 at 01:31 #

    I don’t like her, and I don’t like this balmain collection (tacky!), but I have to admit that she looks great. Perfectly styled, and she’s even smiling.

    I love the dress, the shoes, and the styling. However, I don’t like it on Jessica. She’s too cutesy in my opinion for this type of dress.

  14. alex August 26, 2010 at 23:22 #

    PERFECT, BDOTW for sure!

  15. amber August 26, 2010 at 22:22 #

    love it!

  16. Lou August 26, 2010 at 18:15 #

    I may be outdated, but I am so not o.v.e.r. these shoulders yet. Besides she just looks perfect and classy so surely a BDOTW contender.

  17. manja August 26, 2010 at 17:01 #

    gorgeus,def BDOTW

  18. Victoria August 26, 2010 at 16:59 #

    Amazing!! 😀 Definitely BDOTW!

  19. moja31 August 26, 2010 at 16:31 #

    i’m quickly growing tired of the padded/pointy shoulder looks, but she does look fabulous.

  20. OZALES August 26, 2010 at 15:59 #

    She always looks great but I have to agree I’m sooo over this look

  21. Hisadora August 26, 2010 at 15:55 #

    wonderful!!!! I love this dress on her and sorry, she’s GORGEOUS. BDOTW for me.

  22. pipsqueak August 26, 2010 at 15:49 #

    GORGEOUS! Jessica is one of the rare who can look sexy in Balmain w/o implying vulgarity. So perfect! I’ve been defending Balmain all along. I think its reputation is being tarnished by trashy celebrities, while the truly stylish ones stay away from this risky choice.

  23. Thaysa August 26, 2010 at 15:44 #

    i’m tired of this look, but she looks so amazing!!! I loved!!!

  24. dee August 26, 2010 at 15:25 #

    I’m tired of this look. The bold shoulders, sparkly mini-dress and booties has been done to death. She looks good but we’ve seen this look too many times on other celebs.

    • Carolina August 27, 2010 at 12:05 #

      I don’t like this look. Never liked it. People go crazy over Balmain, but I just don’t get it, and I also don’t get the frenzy over Jessica,

  25. Charlotte August 26, 2010 at 14:46 #

    Even though balmain is so over worn, I definitely still love this outfit on her. Especially seeing as she is a mother! :O some girls have all the luck..

  26. Priscila August 26, 2010 at 14:23 #

    Great look.

  27. Amelia August 26, 2010 at 14:22 #

    sorry. I am completely over Balmain and this sort of dress, so it’s not BDOTW in my opinion, not at all.

  28. Gaber August 26, 2010 at 14:15 #

    From a technical point of view – there is nothing I can fault about this look. The hair and make-up work, the dress fits superbly, the shoes are nice, she didn’t over-accessorize … it just works.
    Too bad she is so bland. She has this perfect face but there is nothing interesting about it.

    Nonetheless, as I said, the look works and she’s is most likely going to be my pick for BDotW.

    • Marvel August 26, 2010 at 22:42 #

      I know exactly what you mean. Everything is perfect from her hair to her heels but she just lacks that personalty and that appeal.
      Her co-star Kate Hudson has plenty of that and thats evident when she is on the red carpet

  29. Elaine August 26, 2010 at 14:15 #

    absolute perfection. I can make an exception for being O.V.E.R. Balmain when she looks this good. defo for BDOTW!

  30. ben August 26, 2010 at 14:13 #

    totally! she is most definately a BDOTW contender!
