On November 11, the Pacific Design Center in Hollywood radiated with glamour and grace, setting the stage for the 13th annual gala hosted by the Baby2Baby organization in collaboration with the esteemed haircare brand Paul Mitchell.
This star-studded event, attended by luminaries like Kim Kardashian, Hailey Bieber, and Chrissy Teigen, had a dual purpose — to raise funds for impoverished children and to celebrate the achievements of the non-profit organization, established in 2011 with an unwavering commitment to ensuring every child receives the fundamental necessities they deserve.
One of the distinguished board members of Baby2Baby, Jessica Alba, captivated onlookers with her dazzling presence at the gala.
The 42-year-old American actress adorned herself in a strapless, silver Tamara Ralph couture gown, a stunning piece from the Australian-British fashion designer’s Fall 2023 collection, making her a standout figure amidst the star-studded gathering.

Alba’s shimmering ensemble, adorned with all-over sequins, showcased silver brilliance and featured eye-catching gold stripes, resulting in a captivating blend of sophistication and allure.
Complementing this dazzling outfit were metallic gold Aquazzura platform sandals with stacked soles and tall heels, infusing an element of drama to her red-carpet appearance.

Choosing to keep accessories to a minimum, the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer star allowed her gown and radiant presence to take center stage.
Dainty hoop earrings, a skinny bangle bracelet, and a few delicate rings were the only embellishments she adorned, while a matching golden Dolce & Gabbana clutch held the night’s essentials.
To complete her look, Alba opted for a glossy, chocolate brown pout coupled with a shimmering, monochromatic makeup look. Pink eyeshadow and blush added a healthy, radiant flush, showcasing her ageless beauty.
For her hair, the Idle Hands actress let down her brunette tresses in a pin-straight, silky style.
