Jessica Alba wears scarves to “cover up puke stains.” We love her more.


Kick-ass Hollywood star and mother of two, Jessica Alba, recently revealed to lilsugar that the real reason she’s spotted in scarves so often is to disguise child-induced stains on her clothing.

I wear scarves, mostly, because they’re an accessory that can dress up an outfit, so you’re not just wearing jeans, a t-shirt, and sneakers.” she said.

But it’s also because if my baby has an accident — and I’m holding the baby — I can cover that accident up! So I’m not walking around with a big puke stain or poo stain on my shirt!”

Jessica continued “Knowing that I don’t have time to go home and change, and really, I don’t have the space, time, or capacity to pick out five different changes of outfits for my car — it’s enough to remember my baby’s change of clothes.”


And so today we pay homage to Jess, and her mummy-dance of 1000 scarves, in this style gallery (simply hover and click):
