Alba's Late Night Club Cover-Up

8/6/2007 10:19 AM PDT
Jessica Alba's got some fantastic friends, who went to great lengths to keep her from being photographed on Sunset Blvd. last night.

With Alba's reported ex Cash Warren nowhere to be seen, Jess and a few of her Euro-trashed buddies made a pilgrimage from Hyde to nearby Chateau Marmont -- with TMZ's camera snapping the long walk.

Not ready to give up a shot of their famous friend without a fight, her entourage desperately tried to block the shot by forming a wall with their jackets and shining lights of their own at our lens. A few friends even managed to get their hands on a still camera and started flashing TMZ's camera, with the generally sullen Alba finally cracking a smile at her friend's antics.
