She's got chills, they're multiplying! Move over Sandy, Jessica Alba's in town. It has been a great week for Jess: on Wednesday she spent all day promoting her eco-friendly brand, The Honest Company, which creates green products for the home and in the evening, she bagged a Women Doing Good SELF awardfor creating it.

From chic to Grease

Yesterday she ditched her classy clobber, swept her hair into a ponytail and rocked a bad-ass leather jacket and shades for the Ralph Lauren show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

Electrifying

The starlet paired the leather jacket with a bright yellow flowing skirt, a black leather clutch, bejewelled stud earrings and platform sandals.

She went all out with the Grease themed get-up and her make-up was equally electrifying.

She opted for smokey eyes, natural foundation and a big pink smile.

I want that ponytail

To get Jessica's ponytail, apply gel to damp hair and brush all your hair from the back into a ponytail and gather on the top of your head. Secure with a hair band. Using your fingers twist the ponytail around your fingers to create a spiral curl. Pull out a small section and wrap it around the base of the ponytail to create a hair band effect and secure with bobby pins.

All you have to do is get a skirt like Jessica Alba's and you'll be ready to give us a perfectly stylish twirl...

Go grease lightning!
