What in the world is Jessica Alba wearing?


I don’t even know where to start with Jessica Alba’s latest outfit. At first I thought this was a cropped jacket with some kind of fur miniskirt, but the whole thing is one coat! I was going to give a weak defense of her, claiming that she just wore this fur monstrosity as she was walking around the Sundance Film Festival, minding her own business. But she also wore it to a premiere! Ugh. Remember when the only thing really going for Jessica Alba was that she wore really great clothes? I think that’s over. Now what does she have? A husband that gets it on with Lindsay Lohan, not much of a career, and bad clothes. No wonder she always looks miserable.

With freezing temperatures reaching as low as -13C at the Sundance Film Festival yesterday, you can’t blame Jessica Alba for wanting to keep warm. But wrapping herself in an unattractive two-tone fur coat will do little to endear herself to animal lovers or fashion followers.

The actress at least managed a smile for photographers as she soaked up the atmosphere in freezing Park City, Utah. As well as the coat, Alba’s was kitted out in woollen leggings, black biker boots and a green beanie hat.

The 28-year-old is at the festival to promote The Killer Inside Me, but has also been checking out the competition after she was spotted at a screening of Blue Valentine.

Alba is hoping for a hit with her new movie – directed by acclaimed British filmmaker Michael Winterbottom after her last few films failed to perform as well as expected. Alba received two nominations for Razzie Worst Actress for her performances in The Eye and Love Guru two years ago.

The Killer Inside Me stars Casey Affleck as police deputy in a small Texas town who lives a double life as a serial killer. Alba plays a prostitute named Joyce, alongside Kate Hudson as his schoolteacher girlfriend Amy.

As well as The Killer Inside Me, Alba also has three more movies out this year, including Machete, Valentine’s Day and An Invisible Sign Of My Own.

I can’t believe Michael Winterbottom hired her! What the hell? He’s a really good director, and he should know better. And speaking of directors who should no better, Robert Rodriguez (who directed Machete) might be in big trouble – word is that Machete sucks big time. I’m fully prepared to blame Alba. And Lindsay Lohan. Oh yes, they’re both in it!

    That coat is all kinds of fug.

  2. snowball says:

    That thing looks like it might have been made by the guy from Project Runway that used human hair to trim his stuff.

  3. Black Cat says:

    her husband prob. can’t stand her sourpuss face either.

  4. vale says:

    wait, are the flannel sleeves part of the coat?

  5. qkqb;b says:

    I hope it’s faux fur!!!!But she’s such a bitch I wouldnt’ be surprised she wears real fur.

  6. Kat says:

    has anyone considered that maybe she looks like a “sourpuss” because she’s basically being stalked by paparazzi? for *bleep*’s sake…..

  7. GatsbyGal says:

    Well, she does look super warm, I’ll give her that.

  8. snapdragon says:

    perhaps she’s auditioning for “grey gardens?”

  9. axb says:

    for a moment i couldn’t see her hands! kind of looks like a hanger…love her face tho…

  10. Kathie says:

    Perhaps her clothing for the first time is “facial expression appropriate” I am not saying her face is in a perpetual snarl but some people just don’t look very happy when their face is in repose and she is one of them God bless her.

  11. Cat says:

    Meh. Even if I was being stalked by paps, I’d still smile once in a while. I don’t recall seeing her smile even on the red carpet recently. She sure has changed, hope she’s ok.

  12. princess pea says:

    I actually think this is the coolest she’s ever dressed.

  13. surely would says:

    She smiles on the red carpet, she’s smiling aplenty in all the pics from last night’s screening. Check out gossip center if you’re doubting it. I know, it’s a lot to think of looking beyond your established storylines! She’s even smiling in this set of pictures, though I get this site can never seem to afford the rights when it comes to pictures of Alba smiling, which are pretty plentiful on the internet. It’s funny how you guys believe the Enquirer ALL THE TIME but can’t be bothered to note that the Enquirer and nearly everyone else thinks the story about Lohan and Alba’s husband was completely fabricated (note: the Enquirer blames Lohan for making it up, you’d think be all over that since you could make fun of her some more!) and etc etc, it’s your usual never see anything but the absolute negative even if you have to believe the sky is green and willfully ignore the evidence and pictures right in front of you when it comes to actresses you dislike.

  14. Ana says:

    What is she wearing???? Something that will get her attention.

  15. kelbear says:

    Wow….The flannel makes the outfit. Interesting, very interesting.

  16. Alexis says:

    I like it…but she seems like a super cool art student right now, not an A list actress…which is like, glass half full or half empty.

  17. rundee says:

    …totally agree with princess pea:
    Her outfit is really cool, not boring at all. Love it all together!
    Maybe it´s because I´m european though, I know the U.S.citizens prefer their women tamed 😉

  18. canadianchick says:

    Fugly-oh honey no!

  19. Laura says:

    Nothing like supporting cruelty to animals, Jessica…. leather, fur, and wool. Seriously, by choosing to wear what you did, you funded the cruel and inhumane torture and death of numerous animals. And for what??? ….your own vanity and over-inflated ego. Shame on you!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Allison West says:

    Jessica, do you have ANY idea how many animals died a slow, horribly painful death for this coat? Animals in traps many times chew their legs off due to the excruciating pain, while others may starve until the trappers come to retrieve them and then brutally kill them, and others are literally skinned alive – sometimes living for 5 minutes or more during this unspeakable pain. Looking chic, if that is even the case, at another living creatures pain and suffering is never, ever cool.

  21. Moore says:

    is anyone even sure its real fur?

  22. princess pea says:

    @ Laura – I’m not trying to start a fight, but WOOL? Really? I had always heard that shearing doesn’t hurt and actually makes the sheep more comfortable. It’s not so much an example of “cruel and inhumane torture” is it?

    Also, it’s FAKE fur. It’s by a company called Opening Ceremony.

  23. TG says:

    Princess Pea, I know for a fact that shearing a sheep for wool can hurt. Those people who shear sheep do it in record time and I have seen many times where the sheep get injured because they get cut. I know from personal experience that if you don’t have the blade lined up properly with the skin and if there is even one wrinkle in the skin it can cause serious damage to the sheep. That being said I am not opposed to wool if done properly and if the sheep is not harmed when he/she is no longer useful. That is the problem also. It is a business with these animals and they all have a shelflife. I can’t be a hypocrite though because I have leather shoes. I do love animals but it is hard to always walk the line where no animal is hurt when choosing what to wear, drive, eat, etc.

  24. Camille says:

    Sure the outfit is kooky, but I’m more bothered by her face, what is up with her lips, they look weird/deflated, has she lapsed on the lip injections?? Her nose looks weird too, not sure why though.

  25. Larissa says:

    proportions not good, just too much going on…just plain yuck!

  26. mouth.like.a.sailor says:

    isn’t that from the Where the Wild Things Are line of clothes that came out for adults… i’m totally not being sarcastic, i saw them for sale on Urban Outfitters when the movie first came out, it was some pretty crazy stuff and it was pretty expensive. i’m gonna go look.

  27. mouth.like.a.sailor says:

    yeah, i was right, it’s the Where the Wild Things Are line of stuff it’s totally FAUX fur, for those of you who are totally blowing your freakin lid that jessica alba was wearing a fur coat. i dont remember reading crazy freaked out messages when the pictures of kate hudson and goldy hawn on vacation in aspen both wearing fur. jaaaaaasus people.

    anyway, here’s the link to the clothing line. it was pretty limited edition so i doubt you can really get it anymore, it did have some pretty neat pieces though, and some really super cool jewelry!


  28. Trillion says:

    It doesn’t suit her. If I saw a girl wearing this walking down the street I’d think she had hot style, but on Jessica Alba it’s more like she’s trying to play the part of a boho arty girl with a trust fund.

  29. gg says:

    I somehow doubt shearing a sheep (causing serious injury?? are you sure a nick on the skin is the same as death?) is not quite the same thing as killing mink and lynx for their skins.

  30. Laura says:

    @ Princess Pea – It’s not the shearing that’s the problem, it a practice that all sheep farmers follow called mulesing, whereby they hack a huge chunk of flesh off the backsides of all the sheep with no anesthesia, no pain meds, nothing.

    Also, many times the sheep are shipped from overseas to be “processed” elsewhere. They are crammed in the hulls of ships with no food or water for days on end, many of them dying in transport.

    So, to answer your question, unless you’re the one raising the sheep and doing the shearing, yes, cruelty is inherent in wool. Check it out… you’ll see.

  31. The animals who died so she could wear that monstrosity are spinning in their graves. Ugghh!

  32. Mouse says:

    Ya know, it’s nice to know that she can relax a little about her looks, but when you make your living being stared at by the public, you really shouldn’t leave the house looking like that. She’s washed up.

  33. crazydaisy says:

    I like it! wouldn’t ever WEAR it, personally, but i think it’s a cute & funky look. Especially the hat.

    Coat is hopefully, and no doubt, fake fur.

  34. Dhavy says:

    Did I read correctly? A-list actress? really? I didn’t know the Fantastic Four was ever an award movie of any kind

  35. sneezy says:

    rundee, what is wrong with you? Take ownership of the fact that you think her outfit is attractive. Don’t make random, meaningless generalizations about people based on which continent or country they come from.

    I think she looks totally insane.

  36. eva hoerler says:

    Ew,it’s ugly whatever it is.I shure hope that it’s fake.The animals shouldn’t have to suffer too! Ouch!

  37. Alexa says:

    I think she looks really good. Just looking at her from the neck up is really causing my jealousy to flare – BIGTIME! I’m not a fan of the California tan beach barbie look, but now I see that when working a true winter look – she is stunningly beautiful. (I’m very jealous unfortunately.)

  38. Erin says:

    wow, she must have decided that not eating and inflating her lips is the only way she’ll get any roles. sorry honey, you’re just a shitty actress.

  39. daisy says:

    jessica is gorgeous…her fashion sense is questionable.I never realized she was a bad actress…….I guess because Im so blinded by her beauty.Alexa..I have trouble watching a movie she is in with my husband.Thats how jealous I am of her:-]
