There is a very short list of celebrities that I would really consider myself a fan. Jessica Alba, actress and owner of The Honest Company is pretty much at the top of that list.

She’s a talented actress, sure. But it’s her grit and dedication that earn my respect, like when she first became a parent to her daughter Honor, and discovered that there weren’t really that many good natural products out there that won’t cause reactions to harmful chemicals. So she just decided to make them. And she didn’t just throw her name on the label of some natural company. She did the heavy lifting herself, and was a part of the research, testing, branding, outreach…all of it. She’s passionate, and it shows. And that’s what draws me to people! Their passion and love for what they are doing.

For their latest cover, France’s Madame Figaro Magazine shot and interviewed Alba, who opened up about her acting career, her company, and her family history as migrants to the land of opportunity. As a small startup, The Honest Company quickly gained a dedicated following, showing a strong market for people looking for trusted products for babies, beauty, even household cleaning. And the company actually made it to unicorn status – a term used for startups that gain worth over $1B.

And of course, Alba looked fantastic in the shoot. They dressed her in laid back power clothes by Ralph Lauren – nothing overtly sensual, feminine, or formal. She wore a couple of denim looks, crisp blazers over wide leg pants, a military jacket over white shorts, a trench coat over a swimsuit, a leather jacket over a button down…all looks to complement a practical working mama on the move. But definitely not polished or disheveled. Oh no, this is mom game status level 10.
