In or Out: Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes attends the premiere of “The Other Guys”
at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City in Oscar de la Renta.
Okay, the inflatable saddlebags are a little weird, but for the most part, it just reads like a very full skirt. Either way, she certainly has the bod to pull it off. Not a lot of women could. We just wish there was some sort of color here. Even if it was just in the nails and the lips, although a shoe with a pop of color would have gone a long way too. There’s always something a little off about her in our eyes. She’s an undoubtedly beautiful woman, but she never seems to maximize that beauty. It’s like she’s always trying to play it down. To our way of thinking, she doesn’t have the looks for that clean and nude face she tends to wear. She needs color and drama on her face. Is her makeup gay a timid little thing, afraid to take some risks? Is she leaving the sultry latina persona to Penelope and Salma? Either way, someone needs to take her aside and say “Redder lip, play up the eyes, don’t be afraid of big hair and you’ll be all over the style pages, honey.” And she needs to have those brows toned down just a little bit.
Still, there’s nothing at all wrong with this look and like we said, she’s rocking a dress that’s not easy to rock. For that, we give her an IN. But we really wish she’d shake it up a bit. You’re not gonna be young and hot forever, sweetie.
