Eva Mendes In Honor – ‘Girl in Progress’ LA Screening

Eva Mendes attended the screening for ‘Girl in Progress’ held at The DGA Theater in LA last night.

The actress opted for a pretty Honor Spring 2012 dress.

Her check-print halter dress with a leather neckline and patent belt was teamed with Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals and stunning Bulgari jewels.

As much as I love Eva, this dress is a tad twee for the sultry actress.

This was a charity event, I’m not expecting her to go all-out sexy, but save this dress for the Zooey Deschanels or Elle Fannings of this world.

Eva Mendes In Antonio Berardi – ‘Girl In Progress’ Charity Screening

It’s been a long while since we saw Eva Mendes on the red carpet, but she made a stunning return on Saturday whilst attending the charity screening for ‘Girl In Progress’ at the AMC Universal Citywalk Stadium in LA.

The actress wore a summery look, despite this ensemble hailing from the Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 collection.

A cream lace macramé sleeveless top was teamed with an orange pleated skirt with a sculptural hem.

You may remember that Emma Stone wore the same skirt in blush pink to the 2012 Nickelodeon Annual Kids’ Choice Awards.

It’s a shame we can’t see the shoes, but I’m hoping she wore the same Giuseppe Zanotti toe-cap heels Jessica Alba wore in the previous post or some neutral-coloured sandals.

Who Wore Gucci Better? Eva Mendes or Karen Elson

Eva Mendes chose to wear this beautiful Gucci silk chiffon dress from the Fall 2011 collection whilst out promoting her movie “Last Night” at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival back in April.

Her scarlet red 70s-inspired chiffon dress features long blouson sleeves and a matching belt to cinch in the waist.

Eva paired the dress with strappy nude Jimmy Choo heels and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels, including gold earrings and two diamond rings.

She wore her hair in flowing waves to complement the vibe of the dress and added a sexy coral lipstick to her look.

Karen Elson wore the same dress to the launch of “Tonight We Tanqueray” in New York recently.

The stunning red-head looked striking in the dress, which she only accessorized with a pair of embellished strappy heels.

Karen also opted for matching red lipstick, which turned the heat up on her look several notches.

Whilst Eva looks amazing in red, I feel the dress is a little too conservative and covered up for sexy, curvy figure.

I love how the dress pops beautifully against Karen’s skin tone and hair colour so my vote is going to her.

You can buy Eva and Karen’s dress from Net-A-Porter.com.

Sidewalk Style: Eva Mendes In Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012

Eva Mendes must have really enjoyed the Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 presentation on Tuesday.

She was spotted leaving her hotel in downtown Manhattan with designer Rachel Roy last night wearing look from the collection.

Her blue mini version of the dark blue runway look was the perfect choice for the Latin star.

Ocean blue illuminates her caramel glow.

The halter dress with a diamond encrusted detail on the neckline was paired with Ferragamo grey satin peep-toes and a dark grey clutch.

On this occasion she opted to wear her hair up and but she kept her same jewels from the presentation earlier in the day.

Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 Presentation

Most Resort collections are only showcased via Look Books on Style.com, but Salvatore Ferragamo presented their Resort 2012 collection in some style in New York City yesterday.

The presentation took place at the James B. Duke Mansion, which is the former home of glamorous American heiress, Doris Duke.

Their front row was just as glamorous as the Fifth Avenue location, as Eva Mendes, Freida Pinto, Ashley Greene and Teresa Palmer took their seats wearing head-to-toe Ferragamo.

Eva Mendes: The Latin beauty wore a two-tone Ferragamo front twist dress. She really went to town by adding a lot of jewels to her look which include an oversized ring, bangles and gorgeous earrings.

Freida Pinto: The Indian actress was radiant wearing a summer chic Ferragamo look which included printed halter top with a white pencil skirt. I wasn’t surprised to see Freida at this event as she wears Ferragamo heels as often as Angelina Jolie on the red carpet. She usually opts for pumps, but she wore Ferragamo brown wedges on this occasion.

Ashley Greene: The Twilight star looked very sophisticated wearing an ivory belted Ferragamo wrap front dress. I love her for having fun with her accessories on this occasion. Bold red cap toe pumps and a houndstooth Ferragamo clutch from the Fall 2011 collection completed her look.

Teresa Palmer: The Australian actress went one step further, by wearing a Ferragamo houndstooth dress from the Fall 2011 collection which has a deep plunging neckline. Classic Ferragamo black pumps and a silver clutch completed her look.

They all look equally fabulous. I couldn’t pick a favourite. If you twisted my arm I could only narrow it down to Freida, Ashley and Teresa.

Massimiliano Giornetti presented a classic 30s inspired collection on a cool, fresh calming colour palette of white, navy, ocean blue and black.

Floppy oversized hats and sailor hats were paired fringed ensembles, nautical looks, tailored suits, tuxedo dresses and sexy separates.

Who Wore Prada Better? Eva Mendes or Elle Macpherson

Back in November, Eva Mendes was in Madrid to promote her movie “The Other Guys.” She did so wearing an eye-catching Prada number from the label’s brightly-coloured Spring 2011 collection.

The eclectic strapless dress features green and black stripes, bold baroque prints in lime green and orange and a ruffled hem.

Eva accessorized with only a pair of black Prada peep-toe shoes, letting the bright prints of the dress make the biggest statement.

She wore her hair down and kept her makeup fresh and glowing.

Elle MacPherson wore the same dress last week whilst attend a screening to launch party for “Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model” at the Soho Hotel in London.

The supermodel added a row of gold bracelets to her look, including a gorgeous snake bangle and a pair of sheer, peep-toe ankle booties.

Elle opted to style her hair in loose waves and added smoky eyeshadow and light pink lipstick to her look.

Both women look absolutely stunning in this dress, but their shoe choices leave a lot to be desired for.

Eva’s are uninspiring whilst Elle’s feel too dressy for this type of look.

Overall though, I think Eva looks the best as the dress hugs her curves in all the right places so she wins for me.
