Lately I’ve been wishing for Jessica Alba to return to the interesting and varied style she showcased during her pregnancy.

We got a glimpse of that during the ‘Rendez Vous with Alber Elbaz’ fete at the Carondelet House in LA on Friday.

The actress (sans tights) wore a Lanvin Resort 2012 strapless multi-colour banded cocktail dress.

This is much more like it; fun and flirty with interesting accessories.

She showcased a stunning amber-and-crystal stone cuff and opted for tan leather platform sandals.

I’m loving Alba in Lanvin.

This is the best she’s looked in a while, proving that she can be a yummy mummy.
