(USA TODAY) Jessica Alba is one of those rare stars who always seems to look stylish and chic. Whether she's snapped by paparazzi at theplayground with her kids, striking a pose on ared carpet, on an awards show stage orfrolicking in a bikini, she's got it all together.

And she looks dreamy/sexy in her Daisy Dukes in a newNet-a-Porterphoto spread.

The interview covers her love of acting, her reconnecting with hubby Cash Warren on a recent vacation and her healthy living bookThe Honest Life.

The mom of two daughters - Honor, who'll be 5 in June, and Haven, who turns 2 in August - also casually reveals what she did to get her body back after having her last baby.

The secret, it turns out, was simple, but tough.

"It was brutal; it's not for everyone," Alba admits. "I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was sweaty, but worth it."
