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

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.

New York & Company And Eva Mendes Collection Launch

New York & Company And Eva Mendes Collection Launch

If you’ve been wondering where Eva Mendes has been, she’s been busy creating a fashion collection with New York & Company.

The actress has been quoted on several occasions saying how much she loves to shop in vintage-clothing stores, so it’s not a surprise that her affordable line of dresses, skirts, blouses and accessories has a vintage-inspired theme.

Like any good brand ambassador, the actress has wasted no time promoting her brand.

For the line’s launch this week she wore a white draped bodysuit, black brocade pencil skirt and necklace.

Yesterday morning she wore a polka-dot dress on ‘Good Morning America’ and a floral dress, jacket and head scarf while leaving.

Eva also wore a coral tunic dress on ‘The View’ yesterday morning. Finally, she has also been spotted wearing a coat from the line to meetings in the city this week.

Aside from the coat, all the pieces are under $100.

Many of you said it would be a cold day in hell before you purchased anything from Rihanna’s River Island collection, so how do you feel about Eva’s New York & Company collection?

Eva Mendes In Prada – ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ New York Premiere

Eva Mendes In Prada - 'The Place Beyond The Pines' New York Premiere

Actress Eva Mendes brought the smolder to the New York Premiere of her new film ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ last night.

The brunette beauty wore a belted, coral Prada gown and blush colored Prada shoes accented with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

While this color is right on trend for the season, something about this look just feels off to me. I think the combo of the ruched bodice, delicate fabric and butterfly encrusted belt is just too sweet a look for anyone, especially the typically sexy Eva. Also, the fact that the dress seems to be the exact color of her blush seems odd, too.

But despite this, her skin is flawless and her gorgeous, shiny hair leaves little question why she is a shampoo spokesperson!

Eva Mendes In Dolce & Gabbana – Late Show with David Letterman

Eva Mendes In Dolce & Gabbana - Late Show with David Letterman

Now this is more like it.

We collectively disliked Eva Mendes’ last look, which I would liken to a tiger wearing a kitten costume; however, the tigress was out to play when she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York City yesterday for a guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’.

Eva wore a sexy Dolce & Gabbana animal-print long-sleeved dress with an embroidered neckline, which was accented with a green leather belt and styled with knee-high taupe boots.

Even behind those chic Thierry Lasry sunglasses, I can still feel her smouldering eyes.

This is the Eva I know and love. One should always play to ones strengths.

Eva Mendes In Valentino – Vogue Eyewear Communications Campaign Launch

Eva Mendes In Valentino - Vogue Eyewear Communications Campaign Launch

Eva Mendes has been M.I.A. on the red carpet and snuggling up to Ryan Gosling, damn her, but she made a return yesterday to help Vogue Eyewear launch their Spring/Summer Communications Campaign, held at Simon House in Beverly Hills, California.

The beautiful actress wore a Valentino Resort 2013 dress for the occasion.

With the sun finally out here in London, this dress has me excited for spring.

Her yellow and multi-pink floral macramé-lace and tulle dress with a defined waist, short sleeves and scalloped hemline was most bizarrely paired with burgundy velvet pumps.

It was bad enough that I wanted to take scissors to the neckline to open it out and cut-out that tulle panel, so the shoes are a bitter disappointment.

A cute pair of those popular Valentino ‘Rock Stud’ pumps or Valentino sandals would’ve been much better.

Signature smoky eyes, a heavy gold embellished clutch and statement earrings completed her look which I think would better suit Kiernan Shipka or Elle Fanning.

Are you as flummoxed by the shoes as I am?
