Eva Mendes must have had checkers on the mind when getting dressed on Wednesday because she was rocking them like they were going out of style!
The Place Beyond The Pines actress exited her chauffeured car in New York City wearing a very retro black and blue checkered dress, which she covered up later with a black and white checkered coat.
Eva completed her look with the usual suspects: her favorite Thierry Lasry shades and Prada boots along with a Carolina Herrera handbag.
It's just too bad she wasn't holding on to our favorite accessory of hers: Ryan Gosling!
Maybe next time.

You can make her change dresses, but you can't take those brown Prada booties and Thierry Lasry sunglasses away!
Eva Mendes continued her one-woman takedown of New York City on Thursday, running errands before having to show up for the premiere of her film The Place Beyond The Pines.
The actress looked quite well put-together in a dotted brown dress cinched at the waist with a leather belt and paired with the textured brown tights she's been wearing ALL THE TIME lately!
They must be super comfy and warm.
Where's Ryan Gosling, though?!?!
He's in this movie, too! Why can't HE be running around Manhattan
shirtless in different outfits?!
Life can be so cruel sometimes.

Even though Ryan Gosling is taking a break from acting, at least we get to see him appear at red carpet events for a while!!
The handsome hunk showed up to the The Place Beyond the Pines New York premiere where he looked like an absolute stud even whilst wearing a black velvet Gucci suit.
We weren't too crazy on the suit, but honestly, he could he wear a velvet bag and we'd still be drooling.
What's even more interesting is he arrived separately from his girlfriend, and co-star, Eva Mendes, who was also seen walking the carpet solo.
The two made sure to stay away from each other, only posing for a pic or two with their other co-star, Bradley Cooper.
Mmm, can you imagine being in the middle of that delicious sandwich??

Now this is more like it!
After leaving a lot to be desired in the fashion department during previous outings, Eva Mendes finally brought the glam to the premiere of The Place Beyond the Pines in NYC on Thursday night.
A belted orange Prada dress and strappy heels accented with Lorraine Schwartz jewels made for quite the ladylike outfit.
And the actress's voluptuous wavy 'do and smoldering smokey eyes raised the temperature considerably!
Eva tends to go for the very seksi looks, but she delivers in this more demure silhouette as well.

Three outfits in one day is child's play for any actress worth her salt.
Eva Mendes gave us a demo of how it's done in NYC on Wednesday while promoting new flick The Place Beyond The Pines.
The actress began her press tour in a chic ivory dress with bateau neckline and delicate peach floral embroidery throughout for a private screening of the film at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
A few hours later she changed into a much more daring look — a belted leopard print Chloe jumpsuit styled with dark brown booties.
Her final look of the day for an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart was a vintage lace dress that looked like a Victorian nightie and the same brown Prada booties from earlier.
Our verdict? First outfit is perfection. Second outfit is inneresting. Third outfit is kind of bipolar.
A dainty lace number and those leather booties just don't mesh well together, as Cher Horowitz would say.

We're usually in looooOOOooOooove with Eva Mendes' style, and she's definitely got the credibility now that she's working on her new clothing line with New York & Co..
But, the stylista hasn't always been a hit on the red carpet. In fact, there's one look Eva wishes she could completely forget about.
When she was recently asked about a red carpet moment that she wish she could change, Eva revealed:
Close and yet so far!
Eva Mendes is insanely gorgeous, so when she falters in the fashion department it's doubly disappointing.
Yesterday the actress paused for a photo op on her way to The Late Show with David Letterman to give us an eyeful of her leopard print Dolce & Gabbana dress.
Love the dress, but HATE those boots! What a way to ruin a perfectly good frock!
And even though she's holding her tweed coat and not wearing it, the print still clashes with her outfit.
Couldn't she have had one of her minions hold it for her while she posed???
On the bright side, that silky, flowy mane is flawless!
