You’re gorgeous, Eva. Now pick up those cherries.
Eva Mendes covers the May 2014 issue of FLARE magazine in Chanel photographed by Guy Aroch and styled by Hayley Atkin.
ON HOW SHE HATES SKINNY-JEANS: “I’m always in dresses, in skirt—I think they’re so easy. People are always saying, ‘I love jeans, they’re so casual and easy,’ but I think jeans aren’t easy. They’re my worst nightmare.”
ON THE REVEALING OUTFITS SHE REGRETS: “It’s not that I’m against body-conscious clothes: I have worn them on the red carpet or out, but when I’m photographed in them, I always regret it. For me, it’s always been the easy way out. When I wear something a little more reveal- ing, I think, Oh, gosh, I should have been more creative.”
ON HER LOVE OF HEAD-WRAPS: “They’re an easy way for me to feel pulled together, even when I’m not. Some kind of scarf or a mini-turban situation. That finishes a not-so-great outfit and polishes up the look a bit.”
Love her sense of style; especially her head wraps, which are known to routinely give us LIFE. And she looks really great in these shots; beautiful and well styled. But man, editorials can get into some silly shit every now and then.
Gosh, how many times has a lady in a strapless cocktail dress asked to use your kitchen sink to wash the gunk out of her toes? If we had a nickel for every time…
Maybe she stepped on the cherries or something? Just trying to work this one out.
Still: She looks beautiful. Can’t take that away.
