Considering the fact that Jessica Alba seems to be a master multi-tasker, one would expect her to host an over-the-top bash. To celebrate her 36th birthday, the actress (movies such as Fantastic Four and Sin City; television’s Dark Angel), entrepreneur (co-founder of The Honest Company and Honest Beauty), mom (to daughters Honor and Haven), and bona fide fashion plate threw a party celebrating two of music late, greatest icons. An homage or insensitive? You be the judge. Touted as a “Prince vs. Michael Jackson” theme party, the brunette encouraged guests to pick favorites and dress the part.
Kicking her birthday off with a demure dancing video, shared to Instagram, Alba’s evening evolved into a hot night on the town at exclusive West Hollywood spot The Peppermint Club, surrounded by her A-list friends.
Alba, a longtime Prince fan, also channeled two of his muses, Apollonia and Vanity 6, with makeup by Kira Nasrat and hair by Chad Wood.
Shay Mitchell and Jaime King pulled out their best ‘80s looks.
While guests like hairstylist Jen Atkin, with photographer husband Mike Rosenthal, went for the Apollonia and Michael Jackson look:
The birthday girl was honored with an oversize cake, but if this video of Alba performing a striptease is any indication, she was probably more interested in tearing up the dancefloor.
