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?

it should be one or the other not both but what surprise me is without makeup she’s not as pretty as I thought she was and I wish her acting would get better, I use to adore her until I saw her latest movie I was very upset I feel like people only want her in their movies for eye candy and that’s it I think instead of trying to do alot of movies how bout doing one where it shows she can act I only hope

No, because that looks really stupid.

No, i think it looks vintage and vintage is hot right now, but i really don’t consider wearing it.Because i’m not the type of person who wears everything, I only wear what i like.

she following a very up and comin trend… however the socks over tights fail to work here because the whole upper body is black and the taupe knee socks just look ridiculous due to proportions.

Y not…thye look cute on her why not try them?

Love it love it love it. What a great way to put stress on that part of her body, and of course I am an undying fan of Mary Janes. So instead of leggings, that has been done excessively lately, or opaque black stockings, she used this. Great. It also brings some color to the rather somber outfit

Joffin on

I deff would, But I haven’t found any that I’m fond of yet. Will be looking in town after school next week.
