We’re just going to come out and say it – that Eva Mendes is one fine, fine lady. Take last night’s display as evidence, if you will.

Sauntering along the New York streets, Audrey Hepburn style, the actress made her way to the premiere of 'The Other Guys' wearing a sleek champagne coloured shift with super-sweet retro shades and Sergio Rossi slingbacks. How dreamy, you think. But then, WOW! When it came to facing the red carpet shutter bugs, she’s only gone and thrown on an enormously poofy overskirt! Tied with a statement bow, the easy-peasy addition instantly transforms the Oscar de la Renta Resort frock into prom-dress proportions, with enough drama to match this season’s mega fifties silhouette. What talent this girl has! But wait, there’s more...

Because before supping on cocktails at the after party, Eva nipped to the loos for another quick costume change. This time, the actress slipped her famous curves into this gloriously vibrant print dress, which once again makes the most of her ickle waist and toned calves, enhanced by a pair of blush suede heels. And could that be her stylist we spy behind her, looking incredibly smug with such an accomplishment? Oh, to have such skills...

From a dab hand to a fashwan up-and-comer, we present Ms Lea Michele. Our favourite Gleekster arrived at the Fox All Star party last night looking terribly slender in a mossy Giambattista Valli maxi-dress, pulled in by a subtle black sash. No major bling, no VB-esque pout, no leg-flashing or knee-high socks – Lea, is that really you?

We finish today’s selection with this, er, interesting offering from Bjork. The Icelandic songstress was taking her daughter, *deep breath* Isadora Bjarkadottir, to the film premiere of 'Moomins and the Comet Chase' in Helsinki (we HAVE to see this film!). And when catching sight of it this morning, honestly, Grazia Daily could hardly breathe with amazement. Because 1) her child is very normally dressed and 2) her frock is actually not THAT bonkers, despite looking like inflatable green puff pastry. In fact, it’s what’s doing on down south that really has us befuddled. Has she dip-dyed her legs? Is she wearing tie dye tights? Are there even such things as tie dye tights and where can we buy a pair? Or is it those bizarre blue shoe-boots that are staining her ankles? Either way, we need answers. Please!
