Jessica Alba has had a busy summer promoting Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and we have gotten used to seeing her casual and sweet red carpet looks. So when the star turned up for a Madrid photocall in a funky Versace minidress, sheer Waldrof leggings and chunky Versace patent leather dominatrix-platforms we did a double take. Not that Jessica doesn’t look amazing, but this look seems a bit out-of-character from her classic style. Tell us: Would you wear Jessica Alba’s platforms? Do you like this edgy new look on her?

It really couldn’t matter less what she’s wearing. I bet she’d look gorgeous with her hair in a ponytail, t-shirt and sweats. I think the shirt is soooo cute! but black flip-flops would’ve been much better than those funky platforms. But again, she’s 100% beautiful no matter what.

Love the look, she finally looks her age!!! But I hate the shoes they look like they belong on the set of a porno movie, sorry Jessica.

A mall rat is a person, most likely a teenager or a young adult who spends a lot of time in a mall. I don’t think that Jessica Alba is one, I love her dress!!!

Mall rats are people whose social life revolves around hanging out at the mall. They dress up just to be seen at the mall. I have no respect for them.

Back on subject, I think the shoes are pretty cute. I would wear them. Jessica Alba looks really cute in this pic. For some reason she looks a little different though. At first I did not believe that was her.

I love the outfit!! And her hair looks amazing!! But I HATE those shoes!!

I love it! Yes, I would wear the platforms- they look funky without being too over-the-top or ugly. It’s good to see Jessica mixing it up a little as she probably gets bored dressing so “proper” all the time.

Besides, Jessica could wear a potato sack and look hot!

She looks adorable except for the shoes…sorry Jessica…

At least she has her act together…which is more than I can say for most of young Hollywood. If she wants to walk on the “wild side” with one pair of shoes (oh my gosh I am talking about it) than let her!


LOVE the shoes.
The rest of the outfit is so-so.. kind of looks like she grabbed it off some rack at the mall.

Jess on

She looks fine. Just mixing it up.
