Jessica Alba, in a bright red Carolina Herrera dress and Giuseppe Zanotti pumps, stepped out with her husband, Cash Warren, for an event at LA's Soho House last night. Inside, she met up with fellow actresses Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington, who gathered to hear author-activist Eve Ensler discuss her V-Day foundation. V-Day is a global activist movement created by Eve to end violence against women and girls. Charlize has been a long supporter of the V-Day campaign, visiting the Democratic Republic of Congo with the organization last year for the opening of The City of Joy, a place where survivors of sexual violence can seek help. Meanwhile, Jessica's making strides to help make the world a safer place with the creation of her Honest Company. Her online business is rolling out a line of eco-friendly and affordable products for children and families.
