Fresh from her front-row showing at Paris Couture Fashion Week, Jessica Alba jumped across the Atlantic to Park City, Utah for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival to premiere her movie, ‘A.C.O.D.,’ at the Eccles Center Theatre.
The actress must have still been having Christian Dior dreams after watching designer Raf Simons’ runway in the French capital, as she donned head-to-toe Dior for Sundance. The black-and-white silk crepe dress was accessorized with a large box clutch and Dior fine jewelry, all of which translated chicly if not monotonously.
It all became a bit boxy and shapeless for me, though, especially when the skirt faded directly into matte black tights and a questionable grey-toned shoe.
Maybe I’m still jaded from staring at the confections strutted out during the couture shows, but I wish this look had a bit more lift and excitement.
However, with Jessica’s sleek updo and understated glamour, I can’t help but appreciate her willingness to take a more dressed-up approach for the film fest, which is known for its casual, anything-goes red carpets.
Do you think this ‘A.C.O.D.’ look was A-plus?
