Jessica Alba puts the chic into Paris Fashion Week with a turbo topknot


Paris Fashion Week is well underway and no one’s nailed it quite like Jessica Alba.

The actress may have come under fashion fire for her oriental dress in cobalt blue (very next season, naturally), but there’s no question Jessica gives great topknot.

Teaming the short blue dress with black tights and heels, Jessica took her place on the FROW at Shiatzy Chen‘s autumn/winter 2013 show.

Legions of fashionistas let out a mini: Zut alors!’ before accusing Jess of forgetting to put on a skirt. But with legs like that, who can blame her?

Jessica opted for a sleek topknot, pulling strands down either side of her face to frame the look and give it a Geisha girl feel.

And her Paris Fashion Week hair secrets?

Jessica says: ‘I
wash it with Aveda Brilliant Shampoo and Conditioner [from £38.68]. I use L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil [£9.99] for flyaway frizzes and a hair wax to keep my cowlick up. I
hardly ever blow-dry.’

Mum-of-two Jessica completed the look with simple jewellery, winged black eyeliner and her PFW 2013 show essential, the black framed shoulder bag.

Très chic indeed.
