Eva Mendes took to the red carpet for the 2012 Met Gala, which was held on Monday night in New York City.

The actress wore a Prada strapless gown.

Her tangerine silk strapless and peplum gown with plexi and resin stone embellishments on the bodice was teamed with a Prada two-tone clutch.

Fred Leighton jewels, Prada heels and large wavy locks completed her look.

I love this look as the colour complements her skin tone and the colours of the clutch stand out against her dress.
