Jessica Alba for Marie Claire US June 2012

Jessica Alba is Marie Claire's cover star for the June 2012 issue, wearing Versus. Scroll down for more.

On being showcased in Maxim-ready looks early in her career: “I had a show [Dark Angel] that premiered when I was 19. And right away, everyone formed a strong opinion about me because of the way I was marketed. I was supposed to be sexy, this tough action girl. That’s what people expected…I felt like I was being objectified, and it made me uncomfortable. I wanted to be chic and elegant!”

On how she has grown more assured of herself: “Now that I’m older, I’ve learned how to own it, but I’m still not very overt. There are some women who dress for men. I dress for myself. It took me some time to get here. Being a mom and feeling grown-up have helped. Now if I’m going to wear something short, it has to have a high neck or a little sci-fi toughness to it, an edge.”

On her former, sexier self: “I like to get positive attention. But if I have a choice between someone noticing in a negative way what I’m wearing and going, What was she thinking? or someone not noticing what I’m wearing, I would rather not make a statement at all and just have a good conversation instead.”

On fashion:  "I'm all about the fantasy aspect of fashion. Some days I feel more tomboy, some days I feel more feminine, some days like a warrior."
