Jessica Alba in Bethesda for The Front Row fashion show

Bethesda’s The Front Row fashion show had a high-profile celebrity guest this year – Jessica Alba. The actress attended the event on Friday as part of her world tour for her first book, “The Honest Life”.

"I grew the child inside of me for 9 /12 months so we had time to bond,” said Alba. “All of a sudden you're responsible for yourself and more than your own existence."

Alba’s book is all about putting family first and how to create a safe, healthy environment for children. On Friday, she spent time signing autographs and copies of her book.
