Jessica Alba at Australia Week 2008 black tie gala

Jessica Alba disappointed us at the G'Day USA: Australia Week 2008 black tie gala at Waldorf Astoria hotel, New York City, Saturday, January 26. Wearing black is always safe but you can still go wrong Jessica managed to prove with a maternity variation that can be succinctly defined as silly.

Her floor length single shoulder black dress was bereft of form and feminity. It featured a chunky jeweled buckle at the shoulder strap, a bold variation that did nothing more than rob the dress of its residual elegance from its fabric and fall.

Alba wore a yellow gold bracelet on her right hand. Her hair was tied up at the nape in a loose chignon.

When you are as beautiful as Jessica Alba and pregnant to boot you can easily brush aside a sartorial misstep. The 26-year-old actress still managed to look radiant and confident.

The Australia Day Black Tie Gala, attended by 1,000 prominent Australian and American arts, philanthropic, government and business executives, marked the close of G'Day USA program for 2008.

The event commenced with a red carpet arrival, followed by a unique dinner experience incorporating fashion and three time winner of the Australian MTV Video Music Awards Best Male Performer Shannon Noll, alongside award winning Indigenous performer, Christine Anu and the Qantas Choir who flew from Australia to perform at the special event. The focus of the 2008 Gala was to profile the exceptional work undertaken by Australia’s Royal Flying Doctors Service.

The G'DAY USA Program is a short term Cultural Exchange which offers High School students and staff the opportunity to travel, as a group, to the USA during the school holidays.
