Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer actress Jessica Alba is one of those celebrities who can look great in just about anything.
She’s considered a fashion icon by many because of her incredible style — whether for a red carpet appearance, a business meeting, or a casual day out.

A sequel to the 2005 film Fantastic Four, the 2007 American superhero film Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer received mixed-to-negative reviews from critics. Alba reprised her role as the Invisible Woman (Susan “Sue” Storm Richards).
Regretting all the hair bleaching she went through for the 2005 film Fantastic Four, the actress wore a blonde wig for the sequel.
In an interview with US Elle in 2010, Alba revealed that the film’s director Tim Story almost made her want to quit acting.

“I wanted to stop acting. The director was like, ‘It looks too real. It looks too painful. Can you be prettier when you cry? Cry pretty, Jessica.’ He was like, ‘Don’t do that thing with your face. Just make it flat. We can CGI the tears in.’ And I’m like, But there’s no connection to a human being,” she revealed.
“And then it got me thinking: Am I not good enough? Are my instincts and my emotions not good enough? Do people hate them so much that they don’t want me to be a person? Am I not allowed to be a person in my work? And so I just said, ‘F–k it. I don’t care about this business anymore’,” Alba added about the sequel.
“Good actors never use the script unless it’s amazing writing. All the good actors I’ve worked with, they all say whatever they want to say,” she said about the lack of artistic freedom.

In September 2014, the then 33-year-old actress was spotted in the Big Apple wearing two different looks.

Her Roland Mouret dress flattered her curves, and its color looked great on her. This effortlessly chic and feminine look was perfect for the occasion.

Later that day, the ‘Fantastic Four’ star was seen heading back to her hotel in NYC. She swapped her lovely dress for a more relaxed ensemble, including a white top, a black skirt, and a peach jacket.
The cool and chic number was finished with a pair of flat sandals.
