Jessica Alba appears on the June 2012 cover of Marie Claire magazine, featuring in a darkly sexy shoot and talking about her personal style evolution, as well as her preference for positive attention.

On being showcased in Maxim-ready looks early in her career:
“I had a show [Fox’s Dark Angel] that premiered when I was 19. And right away, everyone formed a strong opinion about me because of the way I was marketed. I was supposed to be sexy, this tough action girl. That’s what people expected…I felt like I was being objectified, and it made me uncomfortable. I wanted to be chic and elegant!”

On how she has grown more assured of herself in recent years:
“Now that I’m older, I’ve learned how to own it, but I’m still not very overt. There are some women who dress for men. I dress for myself. It took me some time to get here. Being a mom and feeling grown-up have helped. Now if I’m going to wear something short, it has to have a high neck or a little sci-fi toughness to it, an edge.

On her former, sexier self:
“I like to get positive attention. But if I have a choice between someone noticing in a negative way what I’m wearing and going, What was she thinking? or someone not noticing what I’m wearing, I would rather not make a statement at all and just have a good conversation instead.”

The mother of two and Honest Company business owner showcases a selection of beautiful looks from Oscar de la Renta and Salvatore Ferragamo in the shoot by Tesh; the June issue hits the stands on Tuesday, May 22.
