When the news first broke that Eva Mendes is pregnant with Ryan Gosling's baby, the sound of women’s hearts shattering was heard across the world. We’ve slooowly come to accept that the likelihood of becoming Mrs Gosling is somewhat unlikely so rather than planning our wedding to the actor, let's celebrate the beauty that launched a thousand envious faces.
Born to Cuban parents, Eva’s olive skin, thick hair and pouty lips have won her many a 'hottest woman ever' accolade. What's more, her hispanic gorgeousness is the perfect compliment to Ryan’s bright blue eyes and boyish charm. That is going to be one staggeringly good-looking kid.

So in honour of the happy news, we've taken a trip through Eva’s best ever hair and beauty looks and it's clear to see she’s not one to shy away from experimentation. From blue liner to smokey cat-eyes, rosy blusher to bronze glows and a countless number of different hairstyles, you’d expect at least one of these looks to turn out as a huge beauty faux pas, but La Mendes can do it all, even a blonde bob.
