Jessica Alba has firmly established herself as a well-dressed star — from glam turns on the red carpet to casual chic in her off-time, the actress usually nails it. But her outfit at a Natural History Museum party this weekend (with boyfriend Cash Warren) left us more than a little confused. Her hair and makeup look great, and her Juicy Couture coat is adorable. . .but taupe knee-socks over black tights with mary-jane heels? We’re all for layering, but this seems a little off-base to us. We want to know what you think! Tell us: What do you think of Jessica’s layered hosiery? Would you ever wear kneesocks over tights?

Don’t these people own mirrors? This look is hideous!

FUN, FUN, FUN. I love it.

I’m quite open-minded about new looks, but this knee-socks over opaque tights and mary-janes is one that should die quietly.

It looks great on her, and after a while, everyone will start wearing them.

Tania on

Why not?!? and she looks great in everything.

I was thinking about it last week. I found the perfect knee socks to match a short skirt, but I wasn’t sure about wearing that, and wondered if I could put the socks over tights. I sometimes carry a dog purse or wear a hat, either of which gets noticed and that’s okay but I wish others would start wearing this trend, because I’m too shy to be the first, or one of just a few.

For warmth, maybe, but I’d make them the same color as the rest of my outfit. Why draw attention to that random section of leg?
