Eva Mendes In Vivienne Westwood, Christian Dior & Oscar de la Renta

It’s been a very busy week for Eva Mendes but her impeccable style never faltered.

She started off at the “The Other Guys” Press Conference during Comic-Con which is held in San Diego.

Her shimmering gold Vivienne Westwood strapless dress is instantly recognisable as this is very much Dame Westwood’s signature style of dress.

The actress paired her dress with matching gold Casadei pumps.

Next up was Maxim’s celebratory party for “The Other Guys” movie in San Diego.

Eva glows wearing a Christian Dior pinky/peachy chiffon dress with bow detail.

Her look was perfectly colour co-ordinated with a matching pink clutch and blush Brian Atwood ‘Contessa’ suede pumps.

On Wednesday night Eva made an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”.

With her hair down she breezed into the studio wearing an Oscar de la Renta canary yellow strapless dress paired with black Sergio Rossi heels.

It was hard picking my favourite from her Dior and Oscar dress, but the Dior dress got the nod as it’s perfect for her colouring.

Which was your favourite look?

    I love the Oscar dress. I adore the summery colour and I like its shape the best. I would like it up for BDOTW! :)

    Also, so glad you are back and blogging again! But it is weird, at the bottom of the page, it doesn’t let you go onto page 2,3,4 etc on your site!

      Sorry about that, trying to figure out what went wrong there.

      Agree!!! the love the Oscar dress!!!

    I’m glad you’re back with a lot of uploads and I hope you had great holidays!
    I’m so releived to see Eva back at her best and I agree with you, the pink dress is unbelievable on her colouring :)

    However, I’m not sure about the choice of shoes (back!!!) with her stunning Oscar de la Renta dress…

    Have a great day :)

    I’m into pink & peach right now, so I’ll go with the Christian Dior look :-)

  4. Raquel July 31, 2010 at 14:39 #

    You back! Hope the vacations were nice!

    I like the Oscar dress the most. Don’t like the bangles with the Dior dress adn Westwood is TOO much for Comic Con…

    I think I love her in the Oscar. I feel like a traitor coz Viv is my fav of all time, but it’s nice to see Eva in something that doesnt match her skin tone, and green is THE colour for this season and next!
    Hope you’re holiday was good, glad you booked it!! x

    • Fashion Critic July 31, 2010 at 16:07 #

      Yes you were my motivation

      Your team talk worked :)

  6. Judy July 31, 2010 at 15:50 #

    The only thing that seems to work is her confidence. I’m always puzzled as to why she wears colors that are completely wrong for her skin tone.

  7. Anna July 31, 2010 at 16:00 #

    The Dior for me too – though I think the Vivienne Westwood’s cut is ideal for her shape – but it’s just not quite as good as the Dior!

  8. Taylor July 31, 2010 at 16:03 #

    wow she looks great!!! and also, so happy your back! I almost died from withdrawal this week lol!! :)
    Doing a great job!

  9. Danielle July 31, 2010 at 16:24 #

    The Dior is my favorite. Her pose in the Westwood is throwing me off a bit.

  10. Jen July 31, 2010 at 17:00 #

    The yellow Oscar de la Renta by a longshot. It’s great against her skintone, I love her hair, and she’s not making that stupid face.

  11. Alina July 31, 2010 at 17:20 #

    I love all three looks. Hope she’ll continue the good run.

    Welcome back! I hope you had a good time.

    Don’t care for the Vivienne Westwood. It doesn’t fit, and the hemline is in the wrong place.
    The second one is okay. I love the color.
    The Oscar dress is pretty, flirty, and feminine. I really like it. However, those shoes are too heavy for it.

  13. sade July 31, 2010 at 17:36 #

    her knees are soo bony so definitely love her in longer hemlines

  14. Hannah July 31, 2010 at 17:44 #

    I agree that the Dior dress is perfect for her colouring, and i think this dress is soooo pretty!! however, i do not like her hair!! it seems her bang is covering her face and it looks like she can’t see :D i prefer her hair when she is wearing the oscar de la renta dress.

  15. nina July 31, 2010 at 17:59 #

    Love her in Oscar, she looks great!But dont like those shoes with it.
    Welcome back, I miss you, and my daily dose of fashion..hope that you have great time in vacation!!

    Hi, I love your blog! (;
    btw have you seen Blake Lively wearing a black and blue Chanel Resort 2011 mini dress? She’s lovely!
    (:

  17. Z Fashion Blog July 31, 2010 at 19:28 #

    Actually I don’t like any of the three looks.

    Maybe the yellow de la Renta dress..

  18. Laura July 31, 2010 at 20:15 #

    The Vivienne Westwood isn’t my fave. But i like the Dior and de la Renta dresses both. It would be a difficult decision to pick my fave, but the black heels kill the Oscar look for me. So Dior it is.

  19. Ev July 31, 2010 at 21:13 #

    My favourite is the Vivienne Westwood look all the way! It’s just gorgeous. And I absolutely don’t like Oscar de la Renta look – her hair and shoes are ruining it for me.

  20. Marvel July 31, 2010 at 21:59 #

    I love the DIOR look and Im not surprised she’s turned back to ‘look at my boobs boy’ look with the Westwood look.

    Black shoes with Oscar really?

    Hope you had a fab time FC. We all missed you!

    • Fashion Critic August 1, 2010 at 08:27 #

        ‘I was sitting on my hands all week trying not to blog’

        I can acually picture that ;)

  21. Rita July 31, 2010 at 22:01 #

    The Christian Dior dress is the best, the color is perfect to her!

  22. Erik July 31, 2010 at 23:53 #

    Love her and love every look!

    You’ve been missed!

    I couldn’t blog about any “Fly Looks” because I had no idea what anyone was wearing! ;)

    Did you like Jessica Biel’s red-carpet run?

    • Fashion Critic August 1, 2010 at 08:25 #

      thanks Erik.

      Yes I’m going to do a special post for Biel

  23. The Beauty Philosopher August 1, 2010 at 03:58 #

    yes yellow was made for her. I also love the first look – so stylish but natural and effortless.

  24. Hannah August 1, 2010 at 04:02 #

    SO glad you are back, I loved the Dior the most too, except the makeup and hari arent as nice as usual……

    • Fashion Critic August 1, 2010 at 08:24 #

      thanks Hannah

  25. Fiona August 1, 2010 at 05:50 #

    I think the Westwood is the most flattering length for her legs, and the colour is good. I like the other two looks very much, but both dresses have shoes that are far too heavy for them, and they are too short for her. So glad you are back, we missed you!!!

    • Fashion Critic August 1, 2010 at 08:24 #

      thanks sweetie.

      So excited to be back blogging again

  26. mol August 1, 2010 at 06:23 #

    I like the Oscar de la Renta best cause she looks so sweet and pretty in it, love her hair in this look best

  27. Kiwi August 1, 2010 at 08:29 #

    • Fashion Critic August 1, 2010 at 08:48 #

      hey Kiwi, thanks

      I’m enjoying being back, but I did need the break

  28. Kiwi August 1, 2010 at 08:29 #

    The Dior is gorgeous. teh colour looks great on her

  29. Jen August 1, 2010 at 16:16 #

    Overall, I like the Dior look best. The Oscar was sort of a scroll down and wince… the shoes didn’t work for me, though I love the dress. I appreaciate that she changes up her look a lot with different silhouettes and differen hairdos.
