Jessica Alba brought bohemian flair to Stella McCartney’s fall 2023 fashion show this morning during Paris Fashion Week.
Alba arrived to take in the designer’s latest collection at the Manège de l’École Militaire on Monday, wearing a reptilian outfit. The Honest Beauty founder’s ensemble featured a brown and beige snake-printed trench coat, accented with glossy black buttons and cinched with an attached waist sash. For a monochrome spin, the coat was layered atop a matching printed pussy-bow blouse.
Alba’s ensemble was accented by a layered gold crystal beaded bracelet, white bangle and Cartier’s $7,500 gold Just un Clou bracelet. She also carried McCartney’s latest handbag addition: the $1,830 padded S-Wave shoulder bag, crafted from smooth black vegan leather.
When it came to footwear, Alba laced into a pair of McCartney’s spring 2023 heeled mesh pumps to complete her outfit. The “Honey” star’s brown style featured vegan leather soles with thin stiletto heels, finished by rounded toes. The pair’s uppers gained a slick twist from clear toe and slingback straps beneath mesh front panels, connected to thin net-like uppers that created a cutout effect. The sleek set added a daring finish to Alba’s ensemble and simultaneously continued her snake storyline with reptilian embossments.
Stella McCartney’s fall 2023 show emphasized her love for horses, as well as the connections between mothers, daughters and sisters for both humans and animals. The line was presented at the Manège de l’École Militaire — France’s oldest riding school — and included live ponies from horse whisperer Jean-Francois Pignon.
