Eva Mendes Shares Her Fashion Mishap
Dave Allocca/Startraks

Eva Mendes is a pro at glamming it up on the red carpet, but admits to PEOPLE that despite her ability to turn heads, she’s had a few fashion mishaps over the years. “I did this big movie about four years ago. It’s with Nicolas Cage and we had our New York premiere and it was kind of a crazy long day, and by the time the premiere came it was snowing in N.Y.C. and I just threw this dress on,” she explains. “My team and I just got me ready and threw me out the door. Needless to say, it just did not work.” And when it comes to what, specifically, made the look (left) so disastrous, the star says everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. “It was a total disaster. It was a pink strapless dress with this weird braid hairstyle,” she recalls. “At least I was ahead of the curve with the braid. [But] none of it worked.” It wasn’t the first time the star says she’d been the victim of a fashion crime — this one just happened to leave a mark. “I’ve had a few [fashion disasters] but this look has haunted me just because I should have known better.” Tell us: What’s been your biggest fashion blunder? –Kim Peiffer, with reporting by Pamela Edwards-Christiani
