Jessica Alba graces the cover of Marie Claire’s June 2012 issue wearing a lace-up Versus dress. Inside, Jessica discusses being sexy and how being a mom and growing older has changed her outlook.
On being sexy: “I like to get positive attention. But if I have a choice between someone noticing in a negative way what I’m wearing and going, What was she thinking? or someone not noticing what I’m wearing, I would rather not make a statement at all and just have a good conversation instead.”
On her changed outlook: “Now that I’m older, I’ve learned how to own it, but I’m still not very overt. There are some women who dress for men. I dress for myself. It took me some time to get here. Being a mom and feeling grown-up have helped. Now if I’m going to wear something short, it has to have a high neck or a little sci-fi toughness to it, an edge.”
