Jessica Alba in Ralph Lauren at the Met Gala: sweet or messy?

Pregnant Jessica Alba wore a perfectly cute strapless Ralph Lauren Collection silver lame gown with a tulle overlay. I love how happy and sweet she looks. She doesn’t have her pose face on and in these shots there’s something genuinely likable about Jessica. It’s a change for her, and it looks like her second pregnancy has helped her take it down a notch.

So I won’t nitpick her look too much, which was a little messy for me in some photos in that the fabric looked very wrinkled, but that’s how this type of fabric always looks. Overall she’s so pretty here. I love the beaded headband in her hair, which JustJared reports is actually a vintage 1920s necklace from Ralph Lauren.

Her hair is lovely hanging loose in the front and pulled up in back. Her makeup looks understated and yet perfectly done with light peach lips, silver eyeshadow and some pale pink blush.

It looks like Jessica will have some time off to care for her baby. According to IMDB she has just one movie coming up, Spy Kids 4, and it’s already finished filming.

    The best I think I have ever seen her (facial expressions, hair, make-up and formal gown included).

  2. Lindy says:

    I think she looks absolutely fantastic here–I love this look in general (slightly rumpled, vintage-y) and in spring it is pitch-perfect. She is pulling it off very well. Maybe being preggo makes her happy and content?

  3. your mama says:

    sweeeeet (I think I was 1st too). ;-)

  4. Emily says:

    She looks gorgeous. Of the looks we’ve seen so far, she’s definitely my favourite. And it’s nice to see her smiling for once!

  5. brin says:

    She looks beautiful and radiant.

  6. mln76 says:

    She is a gorgeous woman and pregnant so I’ll be nice but I have to ask why everyone chose to wear this color last night? She has a leg up on Goopy etc because the color really only works on darker skin but this color should be banned on blondes.

    “under the sea” prom-y.

    ladies if youre over 13 please do not wear headbands like tiaras, unless it is in fact a tiara and then im going to need to see papers.

  8. NoFrank says:

    I love it. She’s beautiful, she’s glowing, the dress is gorgeous.

  9. Vivi says:

    I think she looks crap. Horrible, budget, wrapping-paper fabric, tacky ass detailing on the front, and some sort of cheap tiara on her head? In what world is this good? I’ll concede that her make-up looks very nice, but the dress is god awful. It’s the sort of thing you’d wear at a trailer park beauty pagent. Maybe people are getting confused with ‘nice dress’ because she’s not got her BitchFace on for once…

    She’s not getting a free pass just because she’s pregs.

  10. marge says:

    i personally dont like the dress, but she does look beautiful and nice for a change

  11. Kelly says:

    Jessicas hair and makeup look fine, but her dress reminds me of Bill Gates shower curtain.

  12. Pix says:

    She looks like a Disney Princess and Beautiful. I love the dress and overall glow.

  13. escapee says:

    She looks very pretty. Quick question though about the necklace hairpiece. How can it be a vintage 1920 from Ralph Lauren when RL is not that old? Does that mean RL did not design it but does own it and loaned it or did Just Jared get some info wrong?

  14. embertine says:

    Initially thought NOOO on the fabric, but the later photos make it look interesting rather than tacky. She herself looks amazing, soft hair, lovely skin, beautiful pregnancy curviness.

  15. dorothy says:

    Love it! She’s glowing.

  16. Rasputina says:

    Cute dress, hate the headpiece, hate the hair.

  17. kayla says:

    that looks like some crap you could buy at David’s Bridal.

  18. courtney says:

    I think Jessica looks beautiful for once and events like this there’s only a few excusses for not smiling on the red carpet death & divorce the two most obvious

  19. Cheyenne says:

    The dress is lovely and she looks great in it.

  20. Mairead says:


    The flash photography makes it look shinier than it is in reality. It reminds me a bit too much of that ‘futuristic’ shimmer fabric that was popular in the mid-90s.

  21. BeBe says:

    She looks decent. Her star has risen and fallen, now she is only in the press for being pregnant. So the question is, how many kids is she going to have??

  22. kazoo says:

    love the hair, headband, and make up. the dress looks so barbie to me.

  23. lrm says:

    wow trailer park fashion show dress?
    I think she looks gorgeous and relaxed. both a 1920′s and a sort of baby doll/pure look with the headband.
    I like it. alot. best of the links i’ve read so far.
    Now, if she were not pregnant, it would have been slightly creepy like she is trying to look like a little girl.
    but she is doing the fertile goddess look and it totally works here.
    archetypal, man….lol

    her makeup always looks good, too. she is truly a natural beauty. i dont know how ppl could say she isn’t.
    and I am not a fan one way or the other of her-but she is gorgeous.

  24. Alix says:

    Stunning! She’s a sparkly baby fairy.

  25. buguiii says:

    The dress doesnt convince me 100%
    But she shines…. it’s amazing


  26. Hanh says:

    I love her dress, makeup, and hair. I wish I could have something that awesome to wear while pregnant.

  27. Me says:

    Why does Hollywood hide the bump? They all wear huge bag like dresses. Jessica does look stunning but her bump isnt big enough to warrant that amount of “tent/tarp”

  28. Maritza says:

    She glows, absolutely gorgeous! I bet she is having a boy.

  29. Amanda G says:

    I didn’t even know she was pregnant. Beautiful.

  30. Nanea says:

    This is the first time since… forever that JA doesn’t seem to yell Look at me.

    Like her dress and make-up.

  31. Aries_Mira says:

    Love it! She looks gorgeous!

  32. lease says:

    she could shave her head and wear a burlap sack..



  33. ladybert62 says:

    That dress looks like a shiny shower curtain to me! I seem to be in the minority here but I dont like the dress or the tiara! Grrrrr

  34. Camille says:

    @ladybert62: You are not alone. I hate this look too, awful!

  35. Newbie says:

    She’s beautiful. I forgot that she was pregnant, so I won’t be too harsh on the dress. After all, you gotta do and wear what you gotta do and wear when you’re pregnant. But the style/fit/fabric scream 1990′s highschool prom to me. I will say that she looks radiant, however.

  36. it’s the best pregnant dress I saw, you have not the most beautiful pictures, Just Jared has better ones, she looks swell in those

  37. Nikki says:

    Gown is sort of pretty, but sort of cheap looking at the same time. HATE the hair, looks so outdated, and hate the hairpiece.

  38. janna says:

    wow. in that first pic jessica looks like jennifer lopez -after lopez had all that tweaking to her face done, was photographed and then touched up to look this good!!

  39. mamalo says:

    She is very beautiful…shes deff blessed in the looks department.
