Looks like the Valentino show held in Paris on Sunday was all about ladylike silhouettes, tulle, and lace. Well, at least that’s how it seemed if I were to base my judgment on the celebrities who sat front row. Majority of them were in lace frocks and skirts, often sheer or see-through; and often with a tea-length hemline.

One famous gal who stood out was Jessica Alba. The actress and entrepreneur arrived at the event in a sheer red lace tea-length skirt and a striped blue button-up shirt tucked under. It was an unusual combination, but Jess pulled it off anyway. She complemented the pairing with wavy sideswept locks, red lips, and a studded clutch. Even more interesting was her choice of footwear. Unlike the others who opted for ladylike pumps and sandals, Jessica slipped into some buckled boots for a dose of edge.
