Eva Mendes sticks to a strict style diet of old school Hollywood glamour on the red carpet, working structured, elegant, floor-length gowns and cocktail dresses, punctuated with statement bows, interesting necklines or asymmetric sleeves. When it comes to daytime dressing, the chic 70s are her comfort zone, with maxi dresses elongating her shape, and platforms and wedges raising her in up in the style stakes. A recent trip to Paris with boyfriend Ryan Gosling showed how comfortable she is in a classic camel coat, easy separates and feminine floral dresses. Mendes could often pass for one of us, rather than an A-list leading lady. There is no edgy experimentation going on here, just refreshingly predictable and classic style.More
