Arriving in style: Jessica Alba at the premiere of her new movie Machete last night at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles


Lindsay Lohan may well have been released from rehab, but she left the promotional duties of her new film Machete to her co-stars last night.

Step forward Jessica Alba, who made sure all eyes were on her in an stand out, short metallic black and gold zigzag dress.

The 29-year-old star, who plays a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent in the action film, arrived in style to the world premiere in Los Angeles last night in a low rider.

Mother of one Jessica, who is married to Cash Warren, looked delighted to be centre of attention as she posed for photographs and signed autographs for fans at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown LA.

Lohan, who was released for rehab on Tuesday night, plays April Benz, an avenging socialite with a penchant for guns in the ultra violent movie.

Yesterday her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, said Lohan would not attend the screening of Machete.


Wow: The 29-year-old star was the centre of attention in a metallic black and gold zigzag dress, teamed with bondage-style heels. Her co-star Lohan was a no show


Cast call: With her co-star Danny Trejo and Michelle Rodriguez, who dressed down in jeans and a skull print T-shirt


But she said Lohan's treatment schedule - including psychotherapy and addiction counselling sessions - will permit the actress to resume working.

In one scene in the controversial film, directed by Robert Rodriguez, Lohan goes topless while swimming in a waterfall with Alicia Rachel Marek, who plays her mother.

The film centers on Machete, an ex-Federale, played by Danny Trejo, who launches a brutal rampage of revenge against his boss after being betrayed by the organization who hired him.

It also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal, Robert DeNiro, Rose McGowan and Don Johnson.

Machete has already fallen foul of controversy after a trailer that was released with a special 'Cinco De Mayo' message inviting viewers into a violent on-screen race war caused outcries of racism.

Rodriguez has a history when it comes to making violent movies, past projects have included the gory vampire movie, From Dusk Till Dawn and the 2007 hit Grindhouse.
