Jessica Alba puts together detailed mood boards for each of her press tour looks.

The actress/entrepreneur always pulls out all of the stops when stepping out on the red carpet, and has most recently been appearing on the circuit to promote her TV show L.A.’s Finest, in which she stars opposite Gabrielle Union.

Even though doing interviews and press conferences can mean very long days, Jessica has now shared that she puts a lot of effort into her outfits for such events.

“Frankly, doing the 14, 16, and 18 hours days and the 12 hours of press is not very glamorous, but when I go on press tours, for me, it’s a time to dress up and (experience) the fantasy, glamorous side of entertainment,” she told Elle.com. “I’ll put together a Pinterest board of movie stars who inspire me. I’ll put together muses and fashions of that time and then hair and make-up and then I’ll collaborate with the make-up artists and the hairdresser to bring it to life.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Jessica reflected on some of her looks for big events, and noted that she did her own styling and make-up during the early days of her career.

The mother-of-three pinpointed a lack of eyebrow pencil and the use of lime green eyeshadow in the late 1990s and early 2000s as key errors, while she explained that her Marilyn Monroe-inspired bright blonde makeover in the mid-2000s was due to hair damage.

“I could have done better! You know what happened is my hair was so blonde, and it was so broken that I cut it all off to start all over. I should’ve just had my tape-ins. I felt like with the blonde it looked better long than short on me-especially with that baby face,” the 38-year-old smiled.

Jessica Alba has honoured her three children with a set of constellation tattoos.

The actress/entrepreneur and her husband Cash Warren are parents to daughters Honor, 10, and Haven, seven, as well as 14-month-old son Hayes.

Jessica often shares updates about her family with fans on social media, and on Tuesday (12Mar19) she took to Instagram to upload a photo of the new body art she has had added to her left arm.

“Honor – Gemini, Haven – Leo, Hayes – Capricorn #hideawayatsuitex,” she captioned the snap, in which she posed alongside celebrity tattooist Dr. Woo, real name Brian Woo.

Jessica also posted a close-up image of her tattoos, with the Gemini, Leo, and Capricorn constellations of the zodiac rendered in very fine ink.

The L.A.’s Finest star is no stranger to tattoos, as she has the word Padma inked in Sanskrit on her right wrist and once had a flower design on the back of her neck – though she has since had that removed. In an interview on The Late Late Show with James Corden in October 2015, she also revealed that she had an image of a bow on her back, but deeply regretted getting the particular tattoo as she wasn’t thrilled with the design and because it evoked difficult memories. “Yes, I have a tramp stamp,” the 37-year-old sighed, and added: “You know what, I was going through a break-up… it’s really bad.”

Meanwhile, in an interview with Allure magazine in 2016, Jessica urged her fans, and especially teenagers, to “think twice” before getting a tattoo.

“You’re never going to be in the same place emotionally and mentally at 18 that you are at 20 or 25 or 30. Something that’s meaningful to you when you’re younger is not going to be meaningful to you five years later. Understand that tattoos are forever. I have a few tattoos. I’m not into them now the way that I was,” she commented.
