Jessica Alba attended an intimate evening of music and culture hosted by Spotify during held at Cannes Lions 2024 on Monday in Cannes, France. During the event, musician John Legend graced the crowd with a performance.

In a summery move, the “Sin City” star sported a pair of platform espadrilles. The breezy style featured thick black crisscrossing straps, open toes, thick platform soles and block heels standing at around 3 to 4 inches in height. The sandal style was lofty, offering Alba a substantial boost in height. Platform styles are a go-to for the thespian, given they elongate her silhouette.

Espadrilles are also a favorite of many celebrities, Alba included. Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Jill Biden and Paris Hilton are just a handful of stars who have opted for espadrilles recently, sporting them with dresses in a similar fashion to Alba’s. The summer-ready style is usually comprised of woven rope-like soles, setting it apart from other sandal styles.

The “Honey” actress paired her platform footwear with a black maxi dress, also in a summer-centric style. The garment featured decorative thin straps, a fitted structural bodice akin to a corset and a flouncy maxi-length skirt that stopped just above Alba’s ankles. The Honest makeup mogul also toted a black leather mini bag from Dolce & Gabbana featuring a gilded heart-shaped clasp and coordinating gold hardware.
