Jessica Alba’s Holiday Sparkle
Jessica Alba is in New York this week promoting her new movie Little Fockers—and what better time to debut a new haircut! “Renato cut it,” she told us yesterday at an intimate gathering at the Trump Soho hotel to introduce Revlon’s latest product line. Renato, of course, is Renato Campora, Frédéric Fekkai celebrity stylist and the man responsible for Alba’s new blunt-cut bob. Being part of the cast for the third installment of the Meet the Parents franchise starring Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro was a dream come true for the actress. “I’ve always wanted to do comedy,” she told us, explaining that comedians like Lucille Ball and Peter Sellers are why she got into the business in the first place. “I really felt like I needed to bring my A game,” she added, referring to her co-star Ben Stiller as a “comic genius.”
While we can’t attest to Alba’s performance, we can say that she hit a home run with her makeup at the Ziegfeld Theatre last night. “Young and fresh with a holiday sparkle” is how face painter Lauren Andersen described the look she crafted to complement Alba’s strapless white Valentino dress. Starting with Revlon ColorStay foundation as a base, Andersen added its Fluid Sheer in gold to the star’s cheeks for luminescence, topping it off with Mineral Blush in Petal, a light pink. Andersen wanted the focal point to be Alba’s eyes, so she dusted them with Dior 5-Color Palette in Incognito and MAC Pro Glitter in Reflects Gold. A precise swipe of Hourglass Liquid Eyeliner in Black and Kevin Aucoin’s Brow Pencils in Blonde (to fill) and Brunette (to shape) completed the look. On her lips: Revlon’s ColorBurst Lip Gloss in Bronze Shimmer.
As for her post-premiere plans, all Alba wants for the holidays is a vacation, a neck massage, and maybe some jewelry. “I love vintage jewelry,” she told us. “And anything Eddie Borgo. It’s just art—so pretty!”
