Eva Mendes In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Eva Mendes walked the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival last night with boyfriend Ryan Gosling for the premiere of their film ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’.

The actress opted for a semi-sheer Dolce & Gabbana dress from the designers’ Fall 2012 collection for the event.

This is a difficult look to pull off on the red carpet. The busy lace will always detract from the person wearing it.

She’s attempted to keep her accesories to a minimum with the simple Casadei blade pumps and clutch, and though I admire Eva’s bravery with the Prada turban, I’m not sure it works here.

What do you think?

    Who says busy lace are distracting?? Eva Mendes proves Fashion Police wrong by looking every inch the goddess in this semi sheer lace up dress by Dolce & Gabbana!! We love how she makes the dress speak for itself by wearing simple heels and the turban makes her look well polished!! Perfection!!

      I agree.

    love this look from head to toe!

    I love it too- I think she pulls it off wonderfully!

  7. Jen September 8, 2012 at 9:43 pm #

    divine, turban and all, as only Eva Mendez (or Sophia Loren) could pull off.

    I don’t like the look at all , no to the dress , double no for the turban…She looks too matron , her best accessory is her boyfriend Ryan Gosling…

    Oh, but that turban must be dealt with. Preferably with fire – so we can’t chance having it appearing again in another celebrity head.
    As for the dress… I love lace, but there’s to much of it. It needs to be shortened, or loose the sleves, or get a less severe cleavage – 2 of those 3 would be good.

    I like everything except the turban, too much “Sunset Boulevard” for my taste; not with this dress, anyway, which is very beautiful and the accessory of the last photo… great choice! 🙂

  11. Sanette September 8, 2012 at 7:52 pm #

    I think she pulled it off. It works really well imo.

  12. Alina September 8, 2012 at 6:09 pm #

    She looks sophisticated. I like it!

    After looking at the last two photos, I have to say : life is not fair!

    • Noemi September 8, 2012 at 7:58 pm #

      LOL… so true!

    Do not like this look at all (!!). The turban feels awfully awkward and out of place here. Ditch the turban, shorten the dress a little bit, get a pair of delicate sexy sandals and a pretty grey/silver minaudiere.

  14. EmmaWoodhouse September 8, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    It’s crazy and overwrought, but I almost think she’s pulling it off!
    Ryan and Bradley look fiiinnnee 😀

  15. Taylor September 8, 2012 at 5:36 pm #

    She is giving life to this look…Love everything

  16. giada September 8, 2012 at 5:05 pm #

    Turban?! no! RYAN? argh argh!

  17. Rebecca Z September 8, 2012 at 4:47 pm #

    I love the dress on her, but I really don’t like the turban.

  18. Mol September 8, 2012 at 4:44 pm #

    I think she looks exotic and fiercely fine, lucky Ryan….

  19. Kennedy September 8, 2012 at 4:39 pm #

    I don’t like this look and I HATE her facial expressions. She seems way too short for this dress although the turban looks fine. Also, I can’t wait to see this movie!! (only for Gos and the director)

  20. Anne g September 8, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    She look divine,I want everything she wears but i think i want ryan gosling more.

  21. Yeliz September 8, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

    I agree, I don’t think that the turban works here. The rest of her look is amazing.

  22. Laura September 8, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    She looks fierce!

    I love the Prada turban and LOVE her boyfriend! lol

  23. justme September 8, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    Random turban aside, I like this look. The accessories (especially the waistband) are well chosen. I also like the length of the dress and the sleeves better on Eva than the model.

    • CreoleLady September 8, 2012 at 9:37 pm #

      +1. Going back and forth on the turban. Love everything else.

  24. noo September 8, 2012 at 4:00 pm #

    I adore this look 😀

  25. Chloe September 8, 2012 at 3:49 pm #

    I do not have the words to explain to you how much i love this
    Only a handful of people could pull this of and Eva is on top of that list

    • dressaddict September 8, 2012 at 7:25 pm #

      Totally agree! When I saw this I said wow! It’s just utterly perfect!
