Barneys Jessica Alba Narciso Rodriguez

FLATTERED, TRULY: Jessica Alba and Narciso Rodriguez stayed close to each other at the luncheon at Fred’s hosted by Barneys New York on Thursday afternoon to celebrate the designer’s shoe collection, greeting guests together and sitting side by side for the three-course meal.

“Well, it’s an exciting moment for the company, to have our bags and our shoes happening, and here at Barneys. They’re really true to our vision — simple, modern, flattering, comfortable.…It’s been so much fun. We’ve had our muses coming through and picking out things they like,” Rodriguez said, gesturing at Alba, who was wearing a dress, bag and shoes by the designer. “Oh, it’s so flattering. We’re old friends — how long have we known each other? Eight years, I think?” Alba asked Rodriguez, who shrugged.

Rodriguez’s designs have a dedicated following, largely due to their reputation for flattering the female form. “Oh, that’s such a compliment, to hear that my clothes are flattering, that women like them,” the designer grinned. “It’s easy with Jessica. Jessica makes me look good.”

The actress protested: “Oh, but I can really, really look broke-down sometimes.…Narciso makes a difference.”
