11 years earlier, she portrayed the Marvel Comics character Invisible Woman in the 2005 American superhero film Fantastic Four.

Starring opposite Ioan Gruffudd, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis, Julian McMahon, and Kerry Washington, her performance earned her nominations for Best Hero (she lost to Christian Bale for Batman Begins) and Best On-Screen Team (lost to Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson for Wedding Crashers) at the 2006 MTV Movie Awards.

A box office success, Alba reprised her role as Susan Storm / Invisible Woman in the 2007 sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. While she dyed her hair blonde for the first movie, Jessica opted to wear a wig in the 2007 sequel.

Meeting her future husband on the set of the film, Alba suffered a kidney infection during the shooting. She nearly fainted when she was with Julian McMahon as Victor Von Doom / Dr. Doom in the space station scene.

Filming started in August 2004 and wrapped in January 2005 when Alba was 23 years old. Born on April 28, 1981, in Pomona, California, she turned 24 on April 28, 2005.

Some additional scenes were filmed in May 2005. The movie was released in the United States on July 8, 2005, when Alba was 24 years old.

For the 2016 Saint Laurent at the Palladium event, Jessica, of course, wore a head-to-toe ensemble from the fashion house.

The Honey actress wore a slinky floor-length slip dress from the luxury fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection.

Her shimmering gold number featured spaghetti straps, a cleavage-baring plunging neckline, and a thigh-high center slit that put her toned, tanned legs on display.

She teamed the sexy frock with a black leather jacket that lent a hint of biker chic flair to the rather sultry look.

The Dark Angel actress completed her look with several edgy accessories, including a chain-strapped black clutch, a selection of rings and earrings, and a pair of black sandals.
