Eva Mendes In Vintage Luis Estévez - 2013 Vanidades Icons Of Style Gala

Following a big push of her fashion collection with New York & Company earlier this week, Eva Mendes was smouldering when she took to the red carpet for the 2013 Vanidades Icons of Style Awards held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, where she was honoured with the Mujer Vanidades Award yesterday evening.

The actress wore a sexy black vintage Luis Estévez black frock with fringe details falling from the halter neckline and an open back.

There was a time when she was no longer playing the sexy temptress role on the red carpet, so I’m delighted to see her back on form here.

She styled the look with Jennifer Meyer hoop earrings, a gold Reece Hudson ‘Stendhal’ minaudière and Jean- Michel Cazabat ‘Emma’ pointy toed patent leather pumps.

Luis Estévez was a favourite designer of Hollywood royalty. His most iconic dress was the one he designed for Grace Kelly. She wore his dress for her first royal portrait after marrying Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956.

    I think she looks amazing-the best I’ve seen her in awhile. I love the dress, and that she honored an Hispanic designer at this event, even if it is–omg–black! 🙂

    Amazing except for the shoes. Some simple sandals were needed.
