Jessica Alba shows off perfect beach chic on holiday in St Barts

She's always perfectly groomed in real life, so it's no surprise that Jessica Alba does flawless beach chic, too.

The Sin City actress hit the shores of St Barts with friends - and her hubby Cash Warren - this week.

St Barts, or St Barthélemy, is a Caribbean overseas territory of France, and is a honeypot for the rich and famous, being known for its beaches, gourmet dining and high-end designers.

It's a volcanic island fully encircled by shallow reefs, has an area of 22.1km² (8.5mi²) and a population of 8,902. However, tourism attracts about 200,000 visitors every year.

St Barts has about 25 hotels, most of them with 15 rooms or fewer. The largest has 58 rooms.

Most accommodations are in the form of private villas, of which there are some 400 available to rent on the island.

The island's tourism industry, though expensive, attracts 70,000 visitors every year to its luxury hotels and villas and another 130,000 people arrive by luxury boats.

The height of tourism is New Year's Eve, with celebrities and the wealthy gathering in yachts up to 550ft in length for the occasion.

Back in 2011, Roman Abramovich threw a £5 million bash for a lucky select 300 guests at his £58 million holiday estate in St Barts, according to the Telegraph.

The estate, which was once owned by the Rockefellers, has a handful of swimming pools, pavilions and beach bungalows, and is the near the beautiful Gouerneur beach on the upmarket island.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers provided the entertainment, and guests, who were told the wear "island chic", were led through candlelit pathways to get to an elaborate marquee in the garden.

We're not sure if Jessica attended that, but she's obviously having a splashing time with her own friends.
