Jessica's Secret: It's All About The Leggings

08/30/2006 at 02:26 PM ET

We all know that Jessica Alba has an amazing body — just think about her bikini in Into the Blue and her sexy Versace at last year’s Oscars. But just like the rest of us, she likes a little bit of help smoothing out and sucking in all the wobbly parts, and her mysterious nude leggings (at left) give her secret away — Spanx! In fact, Jessica admits, “I wore SPANX under my Fantastic Four costume. I love them! Spanx are the only thing that smoothes out all of my lumps and bumps.” So, yesterday, she paired her delicate sundress with their nude Footless Tights, which can take an entire clothing size off the lower body! She’s also ordered the leggings in every color they come in, so expect to see a lot more of Jessica and her Spanx this fall.

i am a huge fan of the gorgeous jessica alba..

but thoose aren’t the best choice for leggings for her

i am aghast. how can she of all people possibly need those? it’s a cruel joke on the rest of us. and no, i’m definitely not buying the “aww, she’s one of us” angle! harumph!

Just awful…I thought they were knee highs when I first saw the pic. She totally ruined the look with those leggings.

That is a really cute dress but not with those leggings, what was she thinking?

Busted! I get the whole leggins trend, but NUDE? What’s the point?? She’s not wearing her Fantastic Four suit, so I hardly believes she needs to smooth out her non-exsistant “lumps and bumps”.

love the dress but the leggings and the bag ruin it..they overpower this adorable dress

erika on

those leggings are terrible and i’m REALLLL sure she needs to smooth out lumps and bumps…even so, what happened to embracing your body and what not? if she’s trying to smooth out lumps and bumps, that doesn’t really send out a good message…

Margaux, how funny, I was thinking the same thing- that she is wearing knee highs.

Norah on

HA! Like she needs to smooth out anything, she couldnt be anymore fit. Celebs say that stuff so they sound “down to earth” and “normal”. I dont know why she wears them, but I do not believe it to “smooth out her lumps and bumps”, come on its Jessica Alba, do you really believe she has “lumps and bumps” to worry about!!??

I just love Jessica Alba! She looks great in just about anything. I love the dress, and I didn’t notice the leggings at first. The outfit would’ve looked a little better without the leggings, but, didn’t look bad with them. I do not follow the “leggings” trend, but it doesn’t look too bad on other people.
