Bella’s Anatomy: Electric Eclectic Jessica AlbaHOME
As Mother's Day is one of the most important dates in May, there's no better person to feature in this month's Bella's Anatomy than beautiful actress and yummy mummy, Jessica Alba! Not only is Jess naturally stunning, she also has an fabulous sense of style and always manage to look perfect, whether she's posing on the red carpet or out and about with her kids. Let's go ahead and check out some amazing beauty products and fashion pieces which will help you emulate her eclectically fashionable style.
Jessica Alba is considered to be one of the most beautiful women in the world, and with those gorgeous eyes, full lips and rocking bod, it's not difficult to see why! Her acting career really kicked off when she appeared as the lead actress in the TV series 'Dark Angel' in 2000, and since then she's appeared in numerous Hollywood films, including 'Honey', 'Sin City' and 'Fantastic Four'.
Jess married film producer Cash Warren in 2008 and had her first child, Honor Marie Warren, in the same year. She then had her second baby, a boy named Haven Garner Warren, in 2011. Since then, she has only appeared in a handful of movies, putting her role of a mother above all others. In early 2012, Jess and her business partner Chris Gavigan launched 'The Honest Company', a collection of toxin-free household goods, diapers and body care products. She is also planning to launch a book in 2013 called 'The Honest Life', which is based on her experiences in creating a natural, non-toxic life for her family.
Since hiring Rachel Zoe’s ex protégé Brad Goreski as her stylist, Jess has taken a few more fashion risks that have definitely paid off. The perfect example is this fashionably eclectic look that she wore for an appearance on "Live! With Kelly" - featuring natural makeup and a combination of bright colours and prints.
Even though Jess looks flawless in front of the camera, she actually has oily skin. As someone who is keen about being green, the Pangea Organics Discovery Kit for Oily to Blemish-Prone Skin would be the perfect skincare kit for her. This system offers the ideal amount of moisture without added surface oil. Carefully selected bio-available ingredients provide weightless hydration plus sebum-control while also helping to calm surface inflammation and revitalise damaged skin.
A Californian Native with a gorgeous Hispanic heritage, Jess has beautiful olive skin that looks healthy and glowing. Enhance your natural radiance with MeMeMe Beat the Blues Illuminator in 'Sunbeam' - simply dab this on the inner corners of your eyes and the tops of your cheeks to accentuate and highlight.
Jess' pretty brown eyes are always framed with long, curly lashes. Find your own Goddess lashes with Napoleon Perdis Mesmer-Eyes Mascara, which offers exceptional volume, superb length and you-go-girl bounce.
To compliment her natural makeup look, Jess is wearing a peach lipgloss, like the Savoir Faire Lipgloss in 'Lolita' (it even has a peaches and cream scent - yum!)
To have hair that is healthy and shiny, Jess definitely uses a quality hair oil. We recommend the Nak Aroma Oil, a leave-in treatment that adds shine and vibrancy while providing thermal and colour protection.
We love her bright ombre green coat - a great alternative to the dark or neautral tones so often found in winter cover ups. For a cheaper alternative to Jessica’s coat by Doo.Ri, try the BA&SH Belted Collarless Coat from Asos
Jessica chose a cute top in a starkly contrasting colour to wear underneath the green. For a vibrant top in a similar orange colour to Jess' tryCountry Road's Seamed Top
Jess' pants really add to the eclectic look of her ensemble. A floral printed pant is great when clashed with juxtaposing colours, or simply when worn with a plain white tee and heels! Our pick for pants similar to Jessica's are the Citizens of Humanity Mandy Floral Roll Up Jeans
We LOVE the colour of Jess' shoes, which complete the whole look. For similar aqua green kicks, we suggest Wittner's Zachary heel. They are sure to put a spring into your step!
Lastly, this Pieces Ohela Leather Satchel at ASOS is the perfect bag to complete Jess' look. It features a fold-over flap with twin pin buckle strap design and a grab handle on the top. Perfect for stashing all the bits and piece we are sure she needs to lug around to look after her little ones... as well as leaving some room for beauty products of her own!
And there you have it bellas! What do you think of Jess' cute look? Which piece would you love to get your hands on most? Let us know! - Lucy and Lauren
