Jessica Alba's little red dress is destined for big, big things! The Mechanic: Resurrection star dazzled onlookers in New York on Thursday when she stepped out in a sleek burgundy leather dress for her upcoming appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Alba's plunging paneled gown paired the formal silhouette of an office-ready look with the rich, evening-appropriate tone of red leather and the actress completed the sultry-yet-edgy look with a pair of beige pumps and a cream purse.

The actress, businesswoman, and mother of two nailed her formal-but-still-flirty ensemble by keeping accessories at a minimum with just silver drop earrings. Alba matched her makeup to the simplicity of her outfit and combined a perfectly bronze complexion, subtle cat-eye, and shimmery pink lip with a tumble of loose waves that dusted her shoulder.

The Honey star's polished look is nothing less than expected from the style icon.

Catch her appearance on the Tonight Show Friday at 11:35 p.m. ET.
