Eva Mendes is looking flawless on the August 2010 cover of Allure.
The 36-year-old works it in her Dolce & Gabbana outfits as she poses for photographer Michael Thompson.
And in the accompanying article, Mendes opens up about her thoughts on her sexy image, saying:
"I'm definitely responsible for the image that I put out there. But it does become frustrating, because I don't want 'sexy' to be my defining characteristic.
I'd love for my ambition and will and intellect and sense of humor to define me as well.
I'm not going to be like, 'No, it's not sexy [during the shoot]. There are moments…but then your knee slips and your elbow goes into him, and you laugh and the moment is completely broken."
What do U think of Eva's sexy shoot?
