Jessica Alba x Diane von Furstenberg x China x A GANG Of Twitpics

Wow. Um. So I know this is definitely filed under the Dewey Decimal System under, “Uh DOY” but Jessica Alba is really pretty. Like, seriously, who but she can take heaps and heaps of photos of themselves in challenging lighting on a smartphone and still look so consistently angelic. Plus, she does stuff like make adorable fugfaces that are SO charming that they’re winsome, too. She really should consider acting in movies and being in magazines or something… Anyway, to celebrate Diane von Furstenberg’s hosting of The Red Ball in Beijing, as a part of her ongoing Journey of a Dress (an exhibition that celebrates the esteemed designer’s more than 40 years in the business), Jessica Alba cataloged the entire journey on Twitter. From delicious meals, to shopping, to partying, to hobnobbing with other exceedingly gorgefaced actress types, to goofing around on random Sino-rickrack, all the goodness can be seen on the DVF site but check out our sneak peek below. Man, we <3 the immediacy of the interweb. *HUGS*
