Get The Look: Jessica Alba’s MTV Movie Awards Bouncy Curls

2014 MTV Movie Awards - ArrivalsJessica Alba looked like the epitome of spring with her big, bouncy curls and crop top ensemble. The mastermind behind her luxurious locks? Celebrity hair stylist Davey Newkirk.

Davey started by spritzing the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray all throughout Jessica’s damp hair.

Using a large round brush, he blew out her hair while giving her tons of volume and shine.

After her hair was dry, he worked in 2-inch sections and used a large 1 ½ curling iron to give her big, voluminous waves.

To allow the curl to set, he secured each section with a duckbill clip. When her hair was cool, he removed the clips and brushed through the waves with a flat brush.

Using a dollop of John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème, he worked this through her hair for shine and smoothness.

He gave her a deep side part and, to keep her strands in place, added a bit of John Frieda Frizz Ease Clearly Defined Gel and locked everything in with the John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray.

Jessica Alba In Piece d’Anarchive & Kenzo – MTV Movie Awards 2014

Jessica Alba In Piece d'Anarchive &  Kenzo - MTV Movie Awards 2014

Jessica Alba presented the ‘Best Shirtless prize’ to Zac Efron at the MTV Movie Awards 2014 on Sunday (April 13) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Working playful, springtime garb, the actress teamed her sunny, lemon-yellow Kenzo high-waist skirt with a white Piece d’Anarchive tube top and geometric printed Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps.

This flirty look was all about proportions, what with the mix of her teeny crop top and voluminous full skirt, not to mention her oversized, black Narciso Rodriguez for Bottletop Collaboration ‘Jessica’ leather crochet clutch, crafted from environmentally friendly, aluminum soda-bottle tops.

Jewels including earrings by Graziela gems, Dana Rebecca & Rona Pfeiffer and rings courtesy of Rona Pfeiffer, Melissa Kaye and Jamie Wolff + Derek Lam for NYC ballet completed her look.

Was the handbag a bit large? Perhaps. But it somehow worked here, and how could she not carry the eco tote that was named in her honour.

Jessica Alba In Cartonnier & J Brand – ‘A Denim Story’ By Emily Current, Meritt Elliott and Hilary Walsh

Jessica Alba In Cartonnier & J Brand -  ‘A Denim Story’ By Emily Current, Meritt Elliott and Hilary Walsh

Jessica Alba joined Mandy Moore in supporting their stylists for the event hosted by Anthropologie to celebrate ‘A Denim Story’ by Emily Current, Meritt Elliott and Hilary Walsh at the PaliHotel on Tuesday (March 11) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress also kept it simple and chic, wearing a blue-and-white leopard-print Cartonnier ‘Limpopo’ blazer and a simple white pocketed tank top with a pair of slim-fit super-skinny J Brand high-rise-waist ‘Photo Ready Maria’ jeans.

Gold jewels, a Bvlgari watch, yellow clutch and a pair of Casadei blue suede pumps accessorized her look, with a simple bun and neutral makeup – with a hot flash of blue on her upper eyelids complementing the blue elements of her casual look – providing the finishing touches.

The only thing not working for me here are the dark-denim jeans. I think I would’ve opted for a lighter-blue or grey denim.

Jessica Alba Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Jessica Alba Paris Fashion WeekJessica Alba has been recently making the rounds during Paris Fashion Week in France, attending a range of Fall 2014 runway shows while showing off her own collection of unique looks.

H&M: Putting a not-so-innocent spin on her girly lace frock, the actress wore her white with black tights and platform shoe-boots at the H&M show. A dramatic oxblood lip, red nails and slightly mussed-up, centre-parted ’do outfitted the dress with more edge.

Nina Ricci: She really kicked her chic streak into gear with this ultra-sophisticated Nina Ricci ensemble, although the dove-grey, ribbed sweater, matching overcoat and dark navy pencil skirt wouldn’t have been half as exciting without those hot, bubblegum-pink Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ pumps. The cool-girl, corresponding pink lip was the icing on the cake.

Kenzo: Rocking another incredible lip hue, Jessica flaunted a matte red pout at the Kenzo show, which only added another layer of bright intensity to her structured, yellow coat. Not only was the lemony colour a traffic-stopper, the geometric print of her black-and-white dress underneath was plenty eye-catching, too. Black, lace-up boots and a graphic clutch completed the bold statement.

Jessica Alba In Chloé - Out In New York City

Jessica Alba stopped by a local ATM to get cash with husband Cash Warren before shopping at Organic Avenue in New York City on Tuesday (March 4).

The actress returned to the more colourful side of her closet, wearing a Chloé Pre-Fall 2014 striped cream-mint-and-black coat, which she styled with complementary mint-coloured jeans, black booties, a black beanie and quirky Miu Miu shades.

Her look was topped off with Chloé’s ‘Baylee’ tote. The beige perforated-leather two-way top-zip bag with contrast rolled top handles is a contemporary classic.

I love that the straps are designed to partly cover the hardware for a clean, elegant finish.
