Jessica Alba in black and white during Paris Fashion Week

March 06, 2013|By Jenn Harris

Actress Jessica Alba made the rounds at Paris Fashion Week sitting front row at Stella McCartney, Shiatzy Chen and Valentino. For the most part, Alba wore variations of black and white pieces with a plain white top and black slacks at Valentino, a black suit and white oxford shirt at McCartney and a coat so darkly gray it looked black at Chen. 

Alba's black and white color scheme was representative of a bigger trend fashion critic Booth Moore noticed while viewing the shows in Paris this week. The Alexander Wang for Balenciaga runway and the entire Viktor and Rolf collection were almost exclusively black and white.
