Forget Sons of Anarchy…. Alba’s a real biker babe who’ll get any man’s heart racing in this racy strapless leather dress – complete with strategically placed embellishments to highlight her bodacious bod. The Dark Angel star wore to Paris Fashion Week last summer.
She’s Got Game
Alba proved she’s got plenty of game last December when she attended the Spike TV Video Game Awards in a form fitting black dress with a leather bustier. It’s no surprise the largely male audience gave her a rousing reception, to which she responded enthusiastically: “I wanna see you guys every night!”
Good Golly Miss Molly!
It may be described as a horror comedy, but there was nothing scary about Alba’s character Molly in this skin-revealing scene from 1999’s Idle Hands.
For her starring role as Honey Daniels, a bartender and dance teacher with dreams of becoming a backup dancer in music videos in the 2003 film Honey, Alba showed off her toned torso in several skin-revealing outfits like the one she donned for the movie poster.
Back in the Spotlight
One look at this photo of Alba in a dangerously low-cut back dress and you can see why she made onto AskMen.com’s Top 99 Most Desirable Women List in 2009. Alba is en fuego!
In 2008’s The Love Guru, Alba portrayed the owner of a professional hockey team on a mission to help de-stress her star player. But in this scene from the comedy from Mike Myers, she more like a supermodel in one of the sexiest LBDs we’ve ever seen.

Modern Day Carmen Miranda!
Portraying one of the popular mean girls in Never Been Kissed, Alba channeled Brazilian samba singer Carmen Miranda in this “Tropical Barbie” get-up. Despite the over-the-top costume, she still managed to make men’s’ hearts go all aflutter with that blonde wig and belly jewelry.
Its no wonder Playboy used this promotional image from Alba’s 2005 underwater action flick Into the Blue for the cover of its March 2006 “The Sex and Music Issue.” She… looks… hot. Playboy even named her the “sex star of the year.” The image, which was sold to Playboy by the film’s production company, led to Alba suing the publisher for using the photo without her consent, saying it made it seems that she was featured inside in a “nude pictorial.” Alba later dropped the lawsuit after Hugh Hefner apologized to Alba and agreed to make donations to two of the charities she supports.
Come On In!
Here’s another inviting image from Alba’s sizzling Campari calendar in 2009, with the Fantastic Four actress giving her best come hither look!
Talk about kickin’ off your Hollywood career with a bang(ing body)!

But it was her super sexy uniform that made the biggest impression on the show’s male viewers.
The cover line on the December 2008 issue of Australia’s Cleo magazine says it all… Everybody loves Jessica! But this cover of Alba pushes up her sexpot quotient, thanks to the gorgeous upright dress.
Ice Cream for Jessica
In this scene from Alba’s 2007 rom-com Good Luck Chuck, the smoldering hot actress enjoys an ice-cold snack…
Take a Plunge
It’s hard not to “take a close look at Jessica Alba,” as directed on the cover line of Alba’s June 2007 GQ cover. In that white swimsuit with navy piping and a plunging neckline, the Into the Blue actress forces the magazine’s gentlemen to take a plunge – into a cold shower!
Let It Rip!
It may be hard to notice Alba’s mad dance skillz in her 2003 film Honey when she’s wearing a ripped midriff-exposing top, short-shorts and a fishnet stockings. Total distraction that men didn’t mind one bit!
Come to Bed
Not sure any red-blooded male would be willing to send Jessica Alba to bed, even when she’s wearing a kitty-emblazoned tank top, boy shorts and robe like in this scene from 1999’s horror comedy Idle Hands.
Sure, Alba committed no denim-on-denim crime on the GQ Mexico’s February 2008 issue. But the Sin City starlet may have caused a few heart attacks with her “loosen up my buttons” pose.
The Little Mermaid
It may be difficult to p ay attention to your surroundings when snorkeling with Alba when she’s looking as fine as she did in this underwater scene from 2005’s Into the Blue.
One look at the cover of Maxim Germany’s November 2005 issue and you’ll see why she earned the top spot on Maxim’s Hot 100 list in 2001… Even in a dowdy cardigan, Alba is F-I-N-E-FINE.
Cosmopolitan declared Alba “One. Sexy. Mama” on its February 2009 cover. After all, Alba sizzles while showing off her rockin’ bod on the magazine’s cover about six months after giving birth to daughter Honor Marie Warren.

Pretty Women Like It Hot?
For the cover of FHM Australia’s June 2008 issue, Alba channeled Julia Roberts and Marilyn Monroe in a sexy-and-I-know-it photo shoot. She wore knee-high leather boots similar to the ones worn by Roberts in Pretty Woman and a white dress similar to the one Monroe wore in The Seven Year Itch.
Look at That Girl with the Daisy Dukes On
Just look at Alba on the cover of Rolling Stone’s June/July 2005 issue and it becomes pointedly clear that the wrong Jessica was cast in the film adaptation of the hit television series The Dukes of Hazzard. Sorry Jessica Simpson, but the Honey star fills out those Daisy Dukes a lot better!
Elle U.K. calls her “Hollywood’s Sweetest Sexpot”… And the magazine’s editors aren’t lying. On the November 2006 cover of the United Kingdom’s edition of the fashion magazine, Alba looks like a siren next door.
She may be wearing a girly pink dress on the cover of Elle’s December 2010 issue, but Alba’s perfect pose gives off a steamy vibe.
Big, bold Barbarella hair. Dramatic eye makeup. An “I see you looking at me” pose. Individually they’d make for a steamy cover. But combined together, as they are on the cover of the Czech edition of Esquire, and you’ve got Alba lookin’ sexier than ever. Simply sizzling!
Boys Don’t Make Passes?
They say boys don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses… But that can’t be true when the girl looks as smokin’ hot as Alba did wearing eyewear in the superhero flick Fantastic Four.

She’s been heralded throughout the world for her multi-ethnic beauty… And, Alba proved just how internationally hot she is in 2008’s The Love Guru when she donned typical Bollywood garb in this scene. Sundara laṛakī! That’s “beautiful girl” in Hindi.
Much like Jennifer Beals did in Flashdance, Alba looks stunning in a one-shoulder ensemb and tousled hair in this scene from her dancetastic film Honey.
Don’t Be Saree
Alba absolutely sizzles in an orange and gold saree in this Bollywood dance sequence from her 2008 film The Love Guru.
Alba could stop time and traffic in the black superhero costume that she fills out quite nicely in her 2011 action film Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World. Bad guys beware!
Alba looked absolutely stunning in this supportive cream dress on the March 2010 cover of the U.K.’s Scarlet magazine, which has the tagline “the magazine that turns women on.” And, there’s no denying Alba has that power as well!
It’s no surprise that Entertainment Weekly selected Alba’s skin-tight Fantastic Four get-up as one of its “10 Sexiest Superhero Movie Costumes” for women. "I have to hold my stomach in... It's really not forgiving at all and if it's that time of month, whatever, it shows everything," said Alba of her iconic outfit.
She’s starred in dozens of films, but Alba was at her sexiest in 2005’s crime thriller Sin City from Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez. As exotic dancer Nancy Callahan, Alba set tongues wagging in her very first scene in the comic-based film, as she danced on the stage at Kadie’s Club in a sexy cowgirl get-up with a lasso in hand. The scene Alba’s performance earned her an MTV Movie Award for Sexiest Performance.
Crazy, Sexy, Cool
Alba brought some serious sex appeal to 2010’s Ben Stiller-starrer Little Fockers, as the loca, loca, loca Andi Garcia, who ends up half naked at the bottom of an unfinished backyard swimming pool. "It was just fun and pretty liberating to play someone who was just so open and so free and totally crazy," said Alba of the role.
Slippery When Wet!
In this photo from Alba’s 2009 Campari calendar, the head-turning beauty manages to make a long sleeve black shirt look caliente. One look at her searing-hotness and you forget you’re supposed be looking at the Campari bottle.
It may not the most hygienic thing to do… But we’re sure most men would be willing to overlook Alba playing with her bubble gum on the August 2007 cover of GQ Italy, especially when she’s got that sexy pout and her taut midriff exposed.
Kiss Me Jess!
Drew Barrymore may have been the star of 1999’s Never Been Kissed, but Alba was the scene-stealer as one of the film’s mean girls. But can you really blame men for being drawn to her when she looks this hot as a human Barbie doll?
Talk about a “come hither smile”… Alba looks absolutely inviting in this scene from her 2007 romantic comedy with Dane Cook Good Luck Chuck.
For her cover shoot for Elle’s March 2009 issue, Alba rocks some serious bangs. But it’s her puppy-dog eyes that really steam up the cover.
