Remember back in February, it was announced that Eva Mendes is launching a fashion line? Yes, tis true. We haven't heard a peep about it since - until now. In the latest editon of The Edit, the actress reveals she's been working on the collection of dresses and accessories, called Eva by Eva Mendes, and is due to launch it at New York & Company later this year. It's inspired by her own personal, retro-chic wardrobe and Eva confesses she consulted her mother and sisters before lending her name to it. 'Everybody was like, ‘This is amazing!’'
The interview is accompanied by a dreamy shoot that sees her trussed up in new-season pieces by Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Valentino. 'If you go short, no cleavage or anything super-fitted; if you’re covered from head to toe, you can go as fitted as you like,' she says of her eveningwear rules. Smart girl!
But that's not all; Eva also dishes on her much-coveted boyfriend, Ryan Gosling (squeal). As you know, the couple met while filming The Place Beyond the Pines and have just finished working on the actor’s directional debut How to Catch a Monster. 'I’m such a weirdo,' says the 39-year-old when the topic of her swoonsome boyfriend comes up. 'I literally lose my ability to speak… I live in a very protective kind of bubble that I’ve created for myself.' We need more than you're giving, Eva.
