Eva Mendes at New York & Company Clothing Line Launch

Posted on September 19, 2013

Eva Mendes is very excited to be starting her job at Ewing Oil today.

 

Eva Mendes attends the launch of her new clothing line at New York & Company in New York City in a white draped bodysuit, black brocade pencil skirt and necklace from her New York and Company line.

She hopes that rogue J.R. can keep his hands to himself. She’s heard things.

This is not the image we have of Eva in our heads. We like to picture her in funky head scarves and kickass boots, walking down a NYC street with a Gosling on her arm. This sort of ’80s night-time soap opera realness feels a little jarring. But we can’t say it doesn’t work like gangbusters. We suppose she could have popped some color into this look, but she clearly wanted something stark and business-like for her image-sell here. We like the idea of using some big, obnoxious jewelry to bring it just a little out of office-wear and into the land of glamour and celebrity, but we don’t actually think that necklace goes at all. We can see her in some crazy-ass big ol’ thing around her neck, but not this one.

Other than that, it all works, although we have to admit, the hair and makeup are looking not-so-fresh.
