Cover Deja Vu: Eva Mendes Works Her Favourite Pose

EvaMendes Cover Deja Vu: Eva Mendes Works Her Favourite Pose %tag

OK, so not technically the same image, or even the same bodysuit, but after seeing the July Marie Claire cover (on the left) it just made me think instantly of the American edition’s March cover, and then a number of other Eva Mendes covers over the years.

We all have our favourite pose, and it seems that Eva’s go-to move is ruffling her hair with hands on hip action, and working her sexy lips. Don’t get me wrong it is a great pose and she looks incredible on both Marie Claire covers above, but it just shows it isn’t just fashion bloggers who re-hash the same pose, I’m a great believer or changing locations not pose!!!

I am finding it quite interesting that magazines are going for the same styling looks with the bodysuits this season, no different I suppose to that famous Miu Miu dress from last year, but is it just me or are more magazines sharing imagery?

On first glance I was excited about Marie Claire UK’s July issue as I love that Prada bodysuit, maybe even more than the Dolce & Gabbana suit she wears for the American issue, but while searching for images I noticed that for the second consecutive month the mag has re-issued a cover image from a sister mag. The June issue with Angelina Jolie was from America and this month’s steamy Eva Mendes shot was used for Russia’s May issue.

I know there is a huge debate at the moment regards print vs blogs, in my opinion I would hate to see magazines die, I love flicking through the pages of fashion magazines, I think it is because of my love of mags that I am so disappointed to see this latest re-issue more than seeing Eva work her go-to pose!!!

Does anyone else feel that British magazines should be more creative than this?

Met Gala 2012: All About The Prada Beauties

PradaDiane Met Gala 2012: All About The Prada Beauties %tag

When I found out that this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition would feature Prada I was excited to see who Miuccia Prada would dress for the Met Gala and she really didn’t disappoint. In her party, to celebrate the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, was the gorgeous Diane Kruger, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Biel, Amber Valetta, Anna Wintour, Carey Mulligan, Eva Mendes, Kate Bosworth, Linda Evangelista, Mia Wasikowska, Grace Coddington, Milla Jovovich, and model Anne V.

It was hard to choose between Diane, Gwyneth, and Carey for my best dressed Prada beauty, but my obsession with Diane meant that she came out on top, closey followed by a very foxy Gwyneth.

Diane was once again flawless in her loose-fitted purple layered crepe silk chiffon Prada gown, which was finished off with a gorgeous ostrich feathered hemline. I loved that she paired her look with a Barbie pink embellished clutch, maybe an ode to Schiaparelli who loved to use shocking pink in her collections.

The best thing about Diane is you never know what she is going to wear as she really can work it all *yes I love her a little too much!!!*.

Just for her paillette-embroidered patch pockets, Gwyneth nearly took top spot in the Prada beauties, as she worked a gorgeous short steel blue halter neck dress, showing off her amazing legs. Finishing off her look were embellished Prada peep-toe heels, hooped earrings, and an exquisite centre-parted bun.

Ever since Gwyneth wore Tom Ford to the Oscars I have been super excited to see what she will wear next and last night she rocked this sexy Prada gown to the max. I am loving her confidence lately. Simply gorgeous.

It’s a tough list when this incredible two-tone gold and silver halter made of shiny paillettes that co-chairwoman Carey Mulligan wore only makes third spot, but this is testament to the exquisite designs from Prada, each one completely different and each one as fabulous as the next.

This is the best I have ever seen Carey, married life obviously agrees with her as she was glowing last night on the red carpet.

Coming in fourth and five, respectively, are Eva Mendes and Mia Wasikowska. Eva’s tangerine orange gown complements her skintone brilliantly, and I love the peplum detailing as well as the embellishments to the bodice, she really is stunning.

Mia gets in my top five ahead of Kate Bosworth in that amazing ostrich feathered mini-dress mainly because I loved the embellished collar and waist detailing of Mia’s Prada dress, as well as the rich raspberry colour.

What do you think of my top five Prada beauties? Should I have included Kate Bosworth, Anna Wintour, Milla Jovovich, Jessica Biel, or Linda Evangelista??? Leave me a comment below.

Who: Eva Mendes

Where: At an Academy Tribute to Sophia Loren at the AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills

Wearing: An apple green silk faille Oscar de la Renta embroidered dress, which falls just below-the-knee from the autumn/winter 2011 collection

Verdict: You don’t see this colour on the red carpet often and as soon as I saw it I actually swooned. The neon colour mixed with the graphic print is just gorgeous, and this is the kind of reaction I was expecting from Eva’s Met Gala outfit, she can always work stand-out more than safe!

Who: Eva Mendes

Where: At the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

Wearing: An electric blue silk one-sleeve pleated Stella McCartney gown with a gold belt

Verdict: The colour, the pleats and the silhouette of this gown is gorgeous, however on Eva it just looks a little safe, elegant but still safe. I only say that because I always feel that Eva can pull of anything, she is still beautiful but I am going to have to list this as, was expecting more.

Who: Actress Eva Mendes

Where: At the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar party in West Hollywood, California

Wearing: A custom Donna Karan full-skirted tulle dress with beading detail, teamed with black heels and clutch

Verdict: Yeah finally someone wore Donna Karan, I was beginning to wonder what celebrity stylists were thinking this award season, as there have been some amazing DK gowns that have deserved flash bulbs.

Well enough about what hasn’t happened, lets just go with how pleased that I am that it was someone like Eva who wore this amazing gown. This little black dress has the cute vibe with the tulle skirt, and the sex-appeal with the beaded detailing, and is a perfect combination for the sultry Eva.

Spirit Awards: Eva Mendes Beautiful in Chanel

evaspirit Spirit Awards: Eva Mendes Beautiful in Chanel %tag

Who: Actress Eva Mendes

Where: At the 26th Film Independent Spirit Awards hosted by Jameson Irish Whiskey at Santa Monica Beach

Wearing: A gorgeous multi-coloured chiffon Chanel dress from the spring/summer 2011 collection, teamed with sky blue Pierre Hardy heels with peep-toe and ankle-strap detailing and a statement Le Vian ring

Verdict: Everything about the SS11 Chanel collection was gorgeous, and I absoultely love this colourful gown on Eva, perfect fit and perfect choice for these awards. I love that it nips in slightly at the waist, and that she kept her hair down as it really softens the look, but for me it’s those shoes that caught my eye first – they are fierce!!

Critics Choice: Eva Mendes Wears Valentino Couture

Who: Actress Eva Mendes

Where: At the 16th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A lace-overlay black Valentino Couture mini with a super-sized bow detailing on one-shoulder teamed with Brian Atwood nude heels

Verdict: It seems we had to wait for Eva to get the wow moment on the red carpet at the Critics’ Choice, and what a wow moment it is.

This dress from Valentino Couture is gorgeous, and surprisingly the bow does not over-whelm her tiny frame, she is working it!! I love the way the nude sheer peeks through the lace overlay, adds to the sexiness of this dress.

Eva definitely walks around with the best dressed crown!!
