Dress just like Jess! Jessica Alba is cleaning out her closet for a good cause. The Honest Beauty cofounder, 35, teamed up with luxury retail site Vestiaire Collective to sell her own designer dresses and shoes, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Baby2Baby on Tuesday, November 15.
“I got involved in Baby2Baby basically when I became a mother. I looked around, and not only did I start a company that gives back and makes responsible, ethical products, but I also really wanted that giveback to be tangible,” the mom of two tells Stylish. “What I love about the work that Baby2Baby does is it provides everyday essentials for families in underserved communities.”
To keep the nonprofit afloat, the Mechanic: Resurrection actress chose 27 pieces with pricy labels like Prada, Versace and Nicholas Kirkwood for fans and fashion lovers to grab for between $125 and $995. She even sold off her black leather laser cut Tory Burch dress from the 2013 Met Gala.
“I also think it's important to not be too attached to those more trendy items and switch them out,” she continues. “And that's why I think Vestiaire [Collective] is such a great place because it allows you to have fun, indulge in those more fun trend-oriented pieces and then you can, you know, move on and shop more. That way you kind of stay on trend for the season but you also have a consistent wardrobe that you can rely on.”
Alba’s curated collection included items perfect for work and play. A $395 black-and-white-printed Versace Mid-Length dress can be layered underneath a sleek black blazer or a duster cardigan, while an emerald green Joyra Maxi Dress would steal the show at any holiday party.
