Babies, right? They are always so baby-like! Each baby shines as an individual beautiful creation of [insert one or several of many divine sources you believe in here]. With their gurgling, spit-ups, laughing, burping, farting, teething, and whatever else they do, babies surely do work hard trying to make sense of this messed up and/or beautiful world we live in.
At an event literally called the Celebration Of Babies, held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, people and actress-slash-businesswoman Jessica Alba got glammed up to celebrate babies, whatever that involves. Maybe they looked at babies in play pens and observed their behavior from a distance, maybe they Instagrammed babies sans filter, or maybe they pretended to be babies as a form of therapy in order to get more in touch with their childish side. Regardless, Alba certainly did not dress like a baby, wearing a blue and black floral strapless dress with silver embossing. Jessica Alba is not a baby.
