Jessica Alba's tried-and-proven recipe for dress success ensures the actress always stands out from the A-list crowd with her unique street style looks. The star's sleek, tailored fashion aesthetic mixes classic and edgy pieces to seamlessly blend together into the perfect outfit.
Thursday night was no exception, as InStyle's July cover girl brought her trademark elegance to a black-and-white ensemble while out on a dinner date in Hollywood.
