“Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans” Premiere
I’m glad this event happened on Friday after I posted my Best Dressed Of The Week poll, because my first reaction to Eva Mendes wearing this Armani Privé Fall 2009 gown was that I liked the dress, but I wasn’t sure if I liked Eva in the dress.
Then as more pictures came in and I saw more angles, I started to appreciate how difficult this gown was to pull off. Especially by someone with Eva’s beautiful curves.
But she does pull it off, and with some ease I might add.
I would’ve never thought of Eva as a Privé girl, but her black gown which appears to be made out of ribbons is exquisite. From the keyhole bodice, to the rosette jeweled detail on her hip.
I’m not a fan of hair pushed back behind her ears, but it’s a small detail when everything else looks so amazing.
Her look was paired with black satin peep-toe pumps.
“Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans” Party
After the premiere Eva headed to the marina where she partied with designer Alberta Ferretti.
It was no surprise that Eva was wearing a gown by the designer.
Eva’s teal chiffon dress with a fringed hem was from Alberta Ferretti’s Spring 2009 collection.
Love the dress, not so crazy about the pale pink heels/black clutch combo.

This navy polka dotted Christian Dior Resort 2010 sheath dress is actually my favourite look of all 4 looks on this post.
The look is so chic and so classic yet not old fashioned.
I wish she had worn the runway heels, but I’m glad she wore the collar down.
Jaeger-LeCoultre host “Bad Lieutenant Port of Call New Orleans” Dinner
Completing the quartet of stunning looks this weekend was Eva wearing a white Chloé by Hannah MacGibbon Resort 2010 dress.
The white lace dress has long sleeves with a delicate chiffon ruffled plunging neckline.
It’s relaxed, yet not too informal. It’s also summer time fresh, even though we’ll all have to wait for next summer to buy this dress.
Some girls have all the luck.
She paired her maxi dress with a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch, wedges and a Bulgari clutch.
I also spy another headband.
