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?

I love that look and i think it looks great on her! I would weat it in a minute!

Sure would and I have. Though I tend to keep it monochromatic…black on black usually.

Perhaps a different color conbination would have worked better. Because she is wearing black on top your eyes go straight to the taupe socks and the straps of the shoes around the ankles.

I would’ve never thought of doing that but now that I see it I think it works! I might try it out up here because winter is so darned cold up here! How else am I supposed to look cute & stay warm?

cute! cute! cute! I think it’s a nice fall/winter twist on boring black tights.

i personally do not like jessica’s style!
because i just love bold colours!!
…and she just wears all grey, brown, and black!

NOT…maybe on a 3 yr old….however, she has the looks & money so she can wear anything she wants whether it looks good or not.

Wow…now here is something which is a total no no regardless who is wearing it and so many of you guys think it’s cool…I wonder what if halle or beyonce was wearing it, would the opinion be different…goes to show you…goes to show you…
