Eva Mendes in Prada

Posted on March 29, 2013

We don’t understand Miss Eva sometimes. She can hit the streets or a red carpet looking sexy, beautiful, confident and fabulously stylish one minute, and the next…

 

Eva Mendes attends the ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ New York Premiere in a Prada dress and shoes paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

… She’s the quintessential mother of the bride.

Oh god, this is awful. It’s possible the dress could be saved with some good styling, because the shape is flattering as hell. But that color is more than a little problematic, and even if we switched out the shoes for something less horrifying, and got rid of the craft-project belt that looks like it was hand-made by a bunch of hyperactive bridesmaids, we’d still be stuck with those matronly-as-hell sleeves. There ain’t no styling in the world that’s going to make sheer, bracelet-length peach sleeves look like anything but an old lady’s dress, no matter how hot the young lady wearing it. And when we say “old lady,” we mean, like, “Queen of England” old lady, not Helen Mirren old lady.

There’s such a massive disconnect between the fabulously sexy head on top, and the septuagenarian dress on the bottom. It wounds us, darlings. If you looked like her, is this something you’d wear for a film premiere?
