For me, the greatest, most fulfilling thing about running a magazine is collaboration: that moment when you have a mad idea and people trust you enough to go along with it. Of course, ideas come from inspiration, and Jessica Alba certainly provides that. Not only is Jessica supremely successful both in Hollywood and with The Honest Company, but she’s also traditionally a best-selling magazine “cover girl.” So I thought, Why don’t we take the market-research tropes of a “successful” women’s magazine cover—smile, hand on hip, shiny jewelry, “accessibility”—and mess with them a little?

This month we wanted to play with the idea of what goes into creating the “perfect” cover. You know the one: It has a gorgeous star showing off her pearly whites without a care in the world. And who better to pull off this cheeky concept than one of InStyle readers’ favorite cover girls, Jessica Alba? The universally adored actress, Honest Company founder, and mom of three was ever the professional as she spent her 37th birthday wearing ’80s-inspired pieces and revealing what really goes into nailing a cover-worthy look.
