Eva Mendes spent the weekend in Abu Dhabi after flying in to attend the closing ceremony of the Middle Eastern Film Festival.

It was the first time the actress had visited the region, and she would have left a lasting good impression walking the red carpet looking radiant wearing a white J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2009 gown.

The white one shoulder asymmetrical gown with a front draping and jeweled waist clasp, was interestingly paired with a maroon beaded necklace and matching bracelet.

The actress is definitely a contender for BDOTW.
