Jessica Alba exudes old-style Hollywood sexuality in a new photoshoot for East-West magazine.

Jessica Alba looks like she stepped right out of a Raymond Chandler film noir murder mystery, circa 1948, in a new photo shoot for East-West magazine. She looks like a cross between Hedy Lamarr and Ava Gardner with a touch of Chita Rivera.

Alba, 32, possesses remarkable natural beauty, but she’s one of Hollywood’s most reluctant sex kittens.

She insists on a strict no-nudity clause in every one of her movie contracts. When a part called for her to be nude in the 2010 film “Machete,” she faked it.

“I don’t do nudity. I just don’t. Maybe that makes me a bad actress. Maybe I won’t get hired in some things. But I have too much anxiety,” she tells the magazine.

The married mother of two talks in the magazine about balancing her life and her career, which often means compromise. “I try to live my life the best I can and I sometimes have to compromise on one thing or another,’ she acknowledges.

“Ultimately, my children’s health and happiness is my priority, so as long as they’re great everything else just sort of works out,” she says.

In the photo shoot, Jessica wears a black George Chakra cocktail dress with a sheer top and compliments it with earings by Lorie Rodkin and Guiseppe Zinotti pumps.

She also wears an off-the-shoulder Zuhair Murad black dress, a two-piece burgundy gown by Krizia, with stunning matching heels by Tania Spinelli and another flowing black Krizia gown, with a revealing back and thigh-high split.

She also wears a stunning off-the-shoulder Versace cocktail dress with plunging neckline and a vintage dress by J. Mendel. Other designers include Lanvin, Michael Kors and Gasoline Glamour.
