Depressing Style: Did Eva Mendes Miss The “Hey, It’s Spring!!” Memo?
Normally leading ladies of films which are set to release in a couple days spice things up a little from a fashion standpoint, but it appears Eva Mendes is moving in the opposite direction. Her most recent outings in NYC seem as if Eva’s schedule is jam packed with back-to-back funerals—not a woman who’s promoting her latest film, the anxious awaited “The Place Beyond the Pines,” which stars Ryan Gosling & Bradley Cooper. What’s up, Eva? Why not show the film’s producers some love & unleash your inner sexy beast & save those recent purchases from the Anthropologie store for later in the summer. Bust out some short & tight dresses and let your fans have a Cuban feast, for God’s sake.
Since it’s Eva & we love her, we gotta give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she’s saving the best for the red carpet premiere, presumably later tonight in NYC. At the end of the day, I have a feeling this film will ultimately sell itself from the standpoint of quality storytelling as opposed to its leading lady making love to flashing cameras & kissing asses of annoying talk show hosts.
On the topic of annoying talking show hosts, here’s a compilation of Eva’s recent press events for “The Place Beyond the Pines”:
