Eva Mendes's Love of Leopard Print: Sexy or Snooze-y?

Lately, we’ve been having deja vu when we see Eva Mendes on the red carpet — everything looks so familiar! And then we realized that it’s Eva’s love of leopard print that’s doing it. The actress has worn the animal print to no less than three events in the past month: a D&G gown at the N.Y.C. premiere of Live, Anna Molinari tent dress at the photocall for We Own The Night in Cannes, and a flowy gown for the Dolce & Gabbana party in Cannes. Eva’s always working a retro sex-kitten look, so the leopard print makes sense. But for the sake of telling her outfits apart, we wish she’d venture out of the animal kingdom a little more often. Tell us: Do you think leopard print is a good signature for Eva or should she try a new look?

Canadian, eh? on

I’m cringing just looking at these pics!

I must say I Heart Leopard Print as well.
I have a leopard skirt, bag, belt, shoes, should i go on?
A full leopard dress… that could be a bit much, i never took it that far. I like it in small doses.

But NO, I don’t wear them all at the same time or all the time. Leopard gives instinct edge and funkiness! It shows comfidence. She looks great in all pics to me!

The print looks good on her, but give me a break. You would think she would be getting bored with this, and the last one, there’s enough fabric there for 4 more dresses!

i love the first dress. she looks great.

that last one, though, reminds me of the scene in The Little Mermaid where Ariel covers up in the ship’s sail with a rope tied around her waist.

She is beautiful, but these dresses are too much of a good thing. Smaller doses of leopard print look great, this is way way too much.

Allison on

Some of the dresses look fab on her but others just look like a tent. She has a good figure but some of those dresses DO NOT compliment her shape.

Boringggg, this look can only last for so long. Although she looks beautiful in the left and middle outfits, she needs something new.
