Jessica Alba In Tory Burch – Glamour’s 2011 Women Of The Year Awards

Glamour’s 2011 Women of the Year Awards was a star-studded event in New York City last night.

Jessica Alba was there as a presenter to celebrate the women honoured at the event.

The mother of two wore a Tory Burch black and white sequin dress.

Whilst the actress is usually sensational, this time it was a miss considering the company she was keeping at this event.

The first thing that sprang to mind was a librarian at a Christmas party.

I wish her black tights and Jimmy Choo pumps didn’t blend into one.

Her half-up, half-down look made her resemble an elementary school student.

Neil Lane jewels completed her look.

    Librarians can be quite stylish – please don’t help perpetuate this dowdy stereotype, especially when we are struggling to keep our jobs and libraries open!

    I like her in the colors – they really work for me, but you’re right that it doesn’t really seem appropriate. It IS very retro, however.

    Librarian at a christmas party is a pretty cool look to have. I like it, but a tight bun might have made it even better.

    This is a very cute look, but she was definitely underdressed compared to the other guests

    I have to disagree, she look gorgeous, the hair, the clothes, make up, everything…

    Feels so underdressed when compared to the other guest.

    Looks like she didn’t get the memo. She is always adorable, but this is a miss.

    Sheer black hose, a classic pair of Manolo’s and taking away the trailer park part would’ve brought this look up a few notches.

    Prepare for more of this until she loses the baby weight.

    this is really a miss for her. I hate everything about it, especially the hair. It’s funny how something so sparkly can be so dowdy.

    She is underdressed for the event but I like her look. I am not keen on the hairstyle. the middle part is not flattering on her.

    I wondered what was off for me. The dress isn’t the problem. The way she styled it is. She looks like she just got a role in Sister Act on Broadway. Just not right.

    OK, it’s official : her maternity style is better.

      lol ikr
      My first thought was “oh I wish she’d get pregnant again”.

      • CreoleLady November 8, 2011 at 23:13 #

        Me too, lol.

    The first thing that came to my mind when I saw her was Alexa Chung..
    It’s so her style..
    anyway.. she looks amazing. Love it!

    This is awful, and confusing – she manages to look girly/childish (neck up) and matronly (neck down) at the same time – this is really bad.

    I think the dress could have worked for the event but the tights + shoes make it a miss for me as well. I really really wish she would do something with her hair to punch up the color – darker or lighter, but this in between takes away from her.

    It’s such a rumpy mumsy look. There is nothing glamorous or even remotely attractive abotu this. I know she doesn’t really do glamour, but I so wish that one day we will get another moment like her in Versace at the 78th academy awards.

  17. Cute but underdressed in comparison.

  18. Jess2 November 8, 2011 at 23:07 #

    Its such a shame, everyone looked so beautiful and glamourous and this is just a big miss. She has so much potential

    It’s not a bad look, but compared to the rest of the attendees, she looks slightly underdressed. The other celebrities opted for glamorous gowns, while Jessica’s outfit here could be more appropriate for a press conference or something like that.

    Its looks like a glittered pilgram outfit she looks like shes coming off of the may flower for real. However, bravo on trying something new her hair and make up looked pretty!

    She’s so cute but she’s had so many red carpet fails of late. It’s like she’s not even trying. This look is anything but glamorous…very disappointing. I’m sorry but this is a fail for me :(

    I saw her wearing Max Mara coat in NY. What sunglasses is she wearing?
