Trying to be wholesome at Whole Foods! Jessica Alba suffered a wardrobe malfunction on Wednesday, Aug. 13, while heading into a Whole Foods location in NYC.

The Honest Company co-founder had stepped onto a subway grate when her flouncy skirt suddenly flew up from the air down below. Alba, wearing a polished black blazer, attempted to keep her skirt from exposing her underwear in front of photographers. Still, the star handled the incident like a pro and later smiled for the cameras.

Alba is no stranger to wardrobe malfunctions. In May 2013, the Sin City: A Dame to Kill For actress accidentally flashed her nipple while adjusting her top.

While Alba didn't want to reveal too much on Wednesday, the star expressed during a Sin City 2 press conference earlier this month that she is considerably more comfortable with her body at age 33, than she was at 22.

"I was so young and I wasn't really comfortable in my own skin," she told reporters of shooting the original Sin City in 2005. "I was terrified and didn't want to make a misstep. I knew how incredible this world was and I didn't want to disappoint them or myself." On her changes, she noted: "In this [sequel], I feel more confident. I feel comfortable in my own skin… If I'm going to be blessed with this career and to be able to do movies, I might as well go 150 percent and really push it, and be fearless."

While speaking to Us as part of the 2014 Hot Bodies issue, the actress explained how she maintains her enviable abs and toned legs. "I'm kind of crazy about Hot Power Sculpt Yoga right now," she said of her workout routine.

She added: "After I turned 30, I felt like I had turned a corner. I definitely started to feel more connected to myself and my body and all of that as a person after I became a mom… I really feel the best now that I ever have, and I feel like it gets better and better every year."
