Fashion Flashback - Jessica Alba Then & Now


Jessica Alba (Getty, Bauer Griffin)Jessica Alba has been through more than her share of transformations—the above photo serving as a healthy reminder of her blond Marilyn Monroe phase. (Sidenote: Regrets happen when you stray too far from your hair's natural color and texture!).

The actress, however, continues to take risks and is a true trend chameleon. In fact, her street style can be used as a compass to guide us on what's in right now. And that's precisely what makes her one of our favorite stars. But this adventurous streak comes with a roller coaster apparel past. Did you know Jessica used to sport jeans to almost every red carpet event? With lots of blouse-y tunics? And even a newsboy cap or two? You wouldn't know it by the cutout dresses, mermaid gowns, and sexy leather she wears today.

Here are Ms. Alba's most drastic before and after photos. Prepare to be amused and inspired.
