PETA 30th Anniversary Gala – Eva Mendes In Lanvin

The gorgeous Eva Mendes showed her support for PETA when she attended their 30th Anniversary Gala at the Hollywood Palladium in LA recently.

Her simple yet beautiful Lanvin cranberry silk gown with grosgrain waistband is a delightful colour against her caramel skin.

This proves to Eva that not dressing sexy doesn’t have to equal boring.

She accessorized with a black clutch and black Casadei peep-toe pumps.

    I love Eva, i love the colour but i don’t like the dress…I couldn’t even imagine it is Lanvin.

      Well, it IS a highly unflattering red carpet look so based on that, it’s not that hard to imagine that it could be a Lanvin.

        Clever, you’re so right

        I am bored out of my mind. Even though it is flowy, it looks a bit large around the hips.

        Ha! So true.

        The colour IS beautiful, now if she just changed her accessories and it had a bit more shape to it… “Not sexy” doesn’t have to automatically equal “unflattering”.

    Are guests allowed to wear leather shoes there?

    Sorry, but this is incredibly boring to me.

    • Marvel September 29, 2010 at 20:36 #

      Ditto despite being Lanvin

    • Ev September 30, 2010 at 06:52 #

      Agree. It is boring, unflattering and poorly accessorized.

    It is really gorgeous on her, but what went wrong with the shoes? They are hideous!

    I love Eva, but the shoes are just way too heavy. Strappy sandals in gold would have much preferred.
    Also, the clutch doesn’t rock my world, it’s big nd distracting. A smaller clutch in gold or black would have made this outfit a lot better.

    This doesn’t even look like a ball gown. It looks more like a lounging dress for the house.
    I guess that silkworms are treated ethically since Eva wore silk to the gala.

    The colour is gorgeous on her but the shape doesn’t do her any favours at all. Makes her look a lot bigger than she is.

    the only thing i’d change is the heavy platform shoe. a dress that’s basically a simple fabric column, is begging for a strappy sandal.
