Eva Mendes may not indulge us with awesome stories about Ryan Gosling, but at least she takes really pretty pictures for us to look at! It's kind of the same thing!
Okay, not really. But the actress does look brutally hot in the "Saints & Sinners" issue of Net-A-Porter's The Edit this week, and we can't not show some appreciation for that.
In keeping with the theme, the peeps at The Edit dress Eva in the seksiest black and white dresses they could find, like a black lace number from Dolce & Gabbana and a delicate white floral lace Anna Sui frock.
Additional lacy outfits are provided by Valentino and Alessandra Rich, though our fave may be the ruffled collar coat by Moschino. It makes her look like a seksi pirate!
The 39-year-old also talks about her new fashion line with New York & Co., saying:
"I’m particular about who I lend my name to. [But] everybody was like, ‘This is amazing!’ It’s directly inspired by my closet."
The actress does admit that she still shops at Goodwill sometimes. She said:
"I think it comes back to not having the means to buy what you wanted. I’ve never grown out of being that girl."
Finally, she dishes on her rules for red carpet dressing. She explained:
"If you go short, no cleavage or anything super-fitted; if you’re covered from head to toe, you can go as fitted as you like."
Sounds about right, but we wouldn't mind if she broke that rule once in a while!
