Jessica Alba graces the cover of InStyle's February 2013 Issue wearing a sleeveless black top and lovely floral printed skirt both by Christian Dior. For her accompanying editorial she is featured wearing fabulous designer pieces from Derek Lam, Carolina Herrera, Fendi and Marni. Inside the 31-year-old actress talks about motherhood, her personal style and how she knew husband, Cash Warren was "the one".
Jessica on husband, Cash Warren: “I just knew when I met him that I was going to know him forever. It was weird; he instantly felt like family. It was so easy. I’d never felt like that with anyone. I was usually pretty self-conscious, minding my p’s and q’s, very aware of every time my fork hit the plate when I was having dinner on a date. With him, there was none of that. We got each other. We’re kindred spirits.”
Jessica on what motherhood has taught her: “Before I had kids, I was very responsible and serious. I used to be all about controlling my environment; everything had to be just so. Now my idea of perfection is different. You can label bins and have a place for stuff, but when the kids go into the playroom, you’re not going to say, ‘We can’t paint, because how are we going to clean it up?’”
Jessica on her personal style: “My style is more adventurous since I became a mom. In the past, I was into my uniform of leggings and a sweater. Now I’m willing to try bold prints, bright colors, and different cuts. Never say never, but I probably won’t ever wear booty shorts. I feel pretty confident about that.”
What do you think of Jessica's cover? Will you be picking up a copy when it hits newsstands January 11th?
