Jessica Alba is in the elite league now! The Sin City actress is now a hugely successful businesswoman who get featured in Forbes cover for its issue about "America's Richest Self-Made Women."

The star is heralded for her Honest Company and business sense in the spread, which also makes reference to the company's massive valuation.

The mag estimates her personal net worth to be at $200 million, which is more than that of top stars Jennifer Lawrence, Katy Perry and Rihanna.

She founded the company in 2012 and Forbes reported that it counted $10 million in its first year with the total skyrocketing to a $250 mil for 2015. The overall valuation is at $1 billion.

"If we really want to make a difference in the world and people’s health, it’s billions and billions of dollars, not just one," Alba told Forbes of her pet project. The health-focused company started with a focus on baby products and diapers that are produced with limited harmful chemicals, and are "unquestionably safe, eco-friendly, beautiful, convenient, and affordable."

"I felt like my needs weren’t being met as a modern person," Alba, who is the mom to daughters Honor, 6, and Haven, 3, told Forbes of finding health-focused, nontoxic baby products. "I want beautiful design like everybody else. But it shouldn’t be premium-priced, and it should, of course, be safe... I kind of want them to be cute, and the natural diapers: Why do they have to look like your baby’s wearing a brown bag?"
