Eva Mendes hosted an screening of “Network” last night in West Hollywood.

If you’ve read Eva’s W magazine July 2010 interview and her Allure August 2010 interview she talks about how she doesn’t want to be seen as just “sexy” – yet she totally contradicts herself by looking sexy in her photoshoots.

When did being sexy start becoming such a bad thing?

This maybe the reason why she chose to wear this Azzaro Fall 2010 dress in an attempt to play down the sex kitten.

It’s still kinda sexy, but not in the body hugging, plunging neckline way we’re used to seeing from Eva.

I love the colour on her. The aqua snake print dress really pops and the pussybow neckline is adorable.

What’s not to love from this look?

But if Eva goes the way of Jessica Biel, I’ll be devastated.
