Jessica Alba opted for a monochrome ensemble as she attended another day of fashion shows in Paris.

The actress wowed in a white high necked top, black tailored trousers, black pointed court shoes and a black clutch bag.

This is the second day in a row that Jessica has rocked a take on the black and white trend.

The day before she made an equally stylish appearance at the Stella McCartney Paris show dressed in a white shirt and black trouser suit combination.

Jessica styled her hair into a deep side parting and kept the lengths long and loose. She also added a slick of berry coloured lipstick to her fashionable look for the occasion.

Showing she isn't afraid to take fashion risks, Jessica also sported a glitzy and glamorous oriental inspired outfit to the Shiatzy Chen show yesterday. Jessica wowed in the striking blue ensemble that had a kimono-feel. She pulled her hair into a messed-up topknot for a more relaxed look.

Other stars gracing the front row at the Valentino showcase included American chart topper Frank Ocean. The singer went for a laidback look, opting for a white slogan T-shirt that read 'Psychedelic'.

Nicole Richie was also there to witness the white collars and sublime colours of 'The Girl with the Pearl Earring' inspired ready-to-wear collection. Nicole wore a ladylike knee length coral number, black court shoes and a black coat with ruffled detailing on the neck line.

Joining the line-up of big names on the bill yesterday was Chanel, who had an all-star front row attendance.

French actress-and-singer Vanessa Paradis described Karl Lagerfeld's show as "impressive".

Actress Jessica Chastain gushed “It looks wonderful,” while model-and-actress Milla Jovovich echoed the praise for the collection.

"It's romantic. I loved the coats," Milla said from the front row. "It's early 20th-century Coco, but he's made it uber-modern."

Milla also wore a black and white ensemble to the front row Chanel showcase. She admitted the look felt like a strange style for her.

“I felt like I’ve never really worn a suit to Chanel, I’ve always been more girly, so I thought it would be nice to change it up a bit,” Milla explained.
