Jessica Alba, in Paris for Thursday’s Miu Miu show, acted like a local and tooled around town on a Vélib’, a bicycle you can rent for a song and return wherever you like.

“We went through eight lanes of traffic, and through Saint Germain where there are no bike lanes. It was the most fun I’ve ever had,” she said, noting she did dress down for the occasion. “It’s hard to ride a bike in heels. I wore flats.”

Next up for Alba is a starring role opposite Kate Hudson and Casey Affleck in “The Killer Inside Me,” in which she plays a prostitute in western Texas, circa 1957. “It’s all Fifties lingerie,” she said of her costumes. Also at the show was Eva Mendes, whose next film role is in Werner Herzog’s “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans.”
