Jessica Alba’s toned tummy was on full display at the meet-and-greet session of ‘Sin City 2’ at Comic-Con 2014 held in San Diego on Saturday. The actress wore a crop top by Tanya Taylor paired with a high-waist, tea-length skirt by Zimmerman that was printed to the hilt and detailed with sheer insets.

This was a perfect top-skirt combination, and Jess punctuated the mix with strappy gladiator sandals that are fierce and just as busy. Check out her Comic-Con outfit below, and then tell us if you like this look.

So, is it a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down?

We think Jessica looked very festive and edgy. Her style was a cocktail of sorts — part punk, part feminine, and part tribal. We can’t say it’s the most flattering ensemble, but if the actress’ goal was to turn heads, then she should give herself a pat on the back for accomplishing the mission with flying colors. Seriously, who can turn away from those sandals?

Below is a closer look at the strappy footwear from Kotur. Yes, that brand that makes gorgeous box clutches. The shoes, dubbed as “Guzel,” are reportedly inspired by Turkish footwear. They’re made of a mix of genuine snakeskin, suede, and vachetta leather. Fancy accouterments, such as mirror discs, embroidery, whipstitch details, and tassels, decorate the sandals for that look-at-me factor, while the 4.25-inch-tall heels offer the perfect lift.
