Cuff Luck: Jessica Alba in David Webb

Add a sleek touch to any ensemble by stealing a starlet’s vintage style

Jessica Alba

At the Dec. 15 New York City premiere of Little Fockers, the weather outside was frightful, but Alba’s ensemble was beyond delightful: a feathery strapless Valentino mini and two highly coveted bracelets designed by society jeweler David Webb. You may not be able to get your hands on those—of the 50,000 designs he sketched before his death in 1975, only about 10,000 have been produced—but we rounded up five other red-carpet–worthy gold bangles.
