Jessica Alba narrowly avoids a Marilyn Monroe-esque wardrobe malfunction in NYC
In New York City on Wednesday, Jessica Alba almost avoided a wardrobe malfunction. On Wednesday, the 33-year-old model was spotted in New York City, where she almost experienced a wardrobe emergency while running errands at Whole Foods.
In a burgundy skirt, black bustier top, and black jacket, the actress looked magnificent. Her hair was worn down in loose curls, and she accessorised with strappy black shoes and an eccentric large purse.
Her search for green merchandise, however, almost came to a disastrous end as she crossed a subway grate, her plum-colored skirt conjuring the iconic image of Marilyn Monroe’s white dress doing the same thing in 1955, billowing up in the wind.
The Best of Luck Chuck celebrity was dangerously close to showing the photographers her underwear, but she was able to keep her skirt up. Marilyn found the whole wind thing funny, but Jessica didn’t seem to. The star of “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” appeared to be in good spirits after missing a “Tonight Show” appearance on Tuesday due to illness.
This isn’t the first time Alba has experienced a wardrobe malfunction. She had a slip-up in New York City’s streets in May 2013, when her slouchy black tank top unintentionally revealed her see-through bra.
Jessica has claimed to be passionate about fashion and to frequently experiment with different looks. She stated in a conversation with Elle magazine that “Fashion is such a significant part of my existence.”
She established Honest, a business committed to using natural products and living sustainably. She said, “I think you can love fashion and love shopping and still be committed to your principles of eco-friendly living.
