Jessica Alba Shows Everyone How To Do Evening Wear This Summer

Jessica Alba mastered the art of the bare shoulders trend in a stunning strapless Vivienne Westwood dress for the 2014 New York Women in Film and Television Awards on Wednesday night.

The 33-year-old actress was all smiles as she worked the red carpet looking like a total knock out in this satin orange ensemble, which she teamed with metallic Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a boxy Kotur clutch.

Gorgeous, glowing and perfectly accessorised. Jess, we salute your style.

Jessica was joined by Rose Byrne at last night's Designing Women Awards and the 34-year-old Australian actress also looked pretty killer in a black Giambattista Valli dress and metallic Casadei heels.

The matchy metallic waist-belt and embellished Marni clutch kept her look sleek and the structured sleeves transported this LBD to high Hollywood glamour stakes.


Glitzy, gorgeous cocktail dress season is in full swing and both Jessica and Rose - who presented awards at the ceremony celebrating women in the entertainment industry - got their looks just right.

Colour blocking and dreamy hand-helds are essentials this summer. And the glossy straight down 'do styled out by both actresses is another hot trend - it just says sharp, sophisticated red carpet confidence.

Whatever you do, make sure you get yourself an incredible blow dry a la these stylish ladies ahead of any sparkly soiree in your diary.
