Eva Mendes In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Holy Motors’ AFI Fest Screening

Eva Mendes took over the promo tour duty for ‘Holy Motors’ from Kylie Minogue on Saturday night, as Eva attended the 2012 AFI Fest screening held at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Possibly taking a cue from the Australian actress, Eva wore a Dolce & Gabbana lace dress.

Her u-neck lace dress with three-quarter length sleeves may not be something we haven’t seen before, but you have to admit Eva is smouldering hot in this dress.

The focus point of this look is her stand-out Sergio Rossi black satin ‘Compact’ clutch with a gold trim.

Black Brian Atwood pumps, emerald-green jewels and barely there makeup completed her look.

Was this va-va-voom or blah-blah-meh for you?

    It’s definitely va-va-voom, but I also have a strange feeling it also ages her. I’m confused.

      Agreed! I’m thinking it might be the “just rolled out of bed ” hair. I wish she’ d kept her usual polished styling. It is quite a lot of black for Eva as well. There’s just something not quite right with this look.

    this dress was made for her, she looks hot! she looks very ‘italian’, very DG.

      Yes, D&G dresses are made for her

    I love the dress, the accessories, the hair and the makeup but it looks as if she’s trouble breathing

    the clutch is beautiful but the dress uggh boring.

    Eva looks smouldering like you said FC, i hate black but she can totally pull it off wow

    Her hair is very post-bedroom session but hey, who am I to judge?
    I am more attracted to the accessories than the dress but it is a nice look.

    She looks smoking hot.

    When it comes to Eva Mendes its always VaVaVoom to me ! love her!

      I agree… she can do no wrong in my book. Halle Berry can sometimes be va-va-blah-blah, but never Eva!

    Does anyone else find this look ageing ?

    I like everything but her hair. It looks a little dry.

  11. Rebecca Z November 5, 2012 at 14:25 #

    Yum. It works for me.

  12. Moxie November 5, 2012 at 15:29 #

    Sexy, but a little boring. There’s nothing memorable about the look.

  13. TeaAtTwo November 5, 2012 at 18:23 #

    The outfit itself isn’t exciting but her simmering sexiness makes it purr.

    • CreoleLady November 5, 2012 at 19:20 #

      +1. The funny thing is, she’s not even trying. In fact I think she has attempted to downplay her sex appeal in the past. Sorry, Eva, you just ooze seduction, might as well own it, lol.

      • Fashion Critic November 5, 2012 at 19:20 #

        Totally agree.

        Own it…run with it

    Not necessarily commenting on the dress (I feel like I keep repeating myself about lace dresses… there are just so many of them and this certainly is one of the less spectacular ones), but I have to say her posture puts me off a bit. With the clutch in front of her body… dunno, if it weren’t Eva Mendes, I’d almost say it makes me think of ‘insecurity’ maybe? She doesn’t look very relaxed or comfortable to me here. That profile shot though… a bit of a different and slightly better story.

    The earings are lovely, but all in all the complete picture doesn’t quite work for me.

    • kane November 6, 2012 at 11:48 #

      Earrings, sorry.

  17. Jess2 November 6, 2012 at 12:13 #

    The dress is to die for, as is Eva in this dress. She looks phenomenal! I love everything about this look and really really love her earrings and clutch!

  18. FISTFULOFPOWER November 6, 2012 at 12:25 #

    I wanna see something new from her, she should stay away from D&G, its tried & true but BORING!

  19. EmmaWoodhouse November 6, 2012 at 13:19 #

    Her attitude is making it blah. I do like the lace sleeves but she is doing nothing to make me like the rest of it–plus I’m not a fan of the corset style D & G top.

    Love this lace black dress!
