You Asked, We Found: Eva Mendes' Wide-leg Jeans

04/04/2007 at 04:30 PM ET

“Who makes those sexy and sassy wide-leg jeans that Eva Mendes sports in your Would You Wear It” gallery?- Danielle

Jumping on the wide-leg jean bandwagon, Eva Mendes showed up at the Grindhouse L.A. premiere in a pair of Diane von Furstenberg’s “Gavin Jeans” in indigo, $325, available at dvf.com. The “Gavin” jean is right off the runway with a high waist and super wide-legs. For the same look, but for half the price try this other celeb favorite from Seven for All Mankind. Seven’s “Ginger” jean in Daytona carries the same wide cuff, high waist and super flare for $143 at nordstroms.com — and we’ve already spotted them on Liv Tyler and Lindsay Lohan. Or really save on these wide-legs from forever21.com for only $30.

I am not at all into wide legged jeans. They look huge and they cover up your shoes!!! You’d trip over them just walking.

Yesssss, those super ugly stupid looking “skinny” jeans are finally not the only thing in style. Woohoo!

Altho, Eva’s jeans are too long and wide for me. Just too over the top. You can get wide leg jeans or boot cut jeans that look classy and not so grungy. I’m just happy they’re finally back – yay!

Eva mendes is beautiful!!!! I think those pants are really cute I would sport them!!!!1

They are fine – but I’m not sure what is going on with that hem-stitching-stuff. I find that distracting and it cuts her line a bit (but no biggie since she is a tall, slender gal). I’m too short for this look, but it can look very nice. Angie Harmon was recently shown in her’s with a sleeveless top – she looked like a million bucks.

Heather S. on

Those pants are heinous! If they make a tall, slender star look like she has stub legs, what will it do to a shorter woman? I’ll stick with my skinny jeans, which are actually quite flattering to my figure, until they come up with something else, thanks!

D on

Who are the people asking for the ugly clothes?

JH on

I’m glad that skinny jeans are on their way out, too. I think these are a little TOO wide for me, especially because I’m quite petite. However, they’ve a good look for someone willing to be daring with the trend. I just wouldn’t pair loose pants with a loose sweater like Eva did. She should have worn something more form-fitted on top.

Shauna on

While I agree it’s a good thing skinny jeans are “out”, I don’t necessarily like “big” jeans either. These are awful! Seriously, they look like a high schooler made them in home ec. class. Yikes!

KT from Cda on

They look like clown pants minus the polka dots!

Lila on

I am too petite and hour glass-shaped for such an exaggerated look. I will stick with my low rise James Cured by Seun straight legs- not too skinny and not too flare-y…just perfect! People should also stop whining about skinny jeans. If you can wear them great, if not, just shut up about them.

Elda on

yikes i’m sorry but i don’t like them but Eva still manages to look pretty!

lizz on

they are a little to wide for me- i prefer the wide leg capri’s they still have the wide leg but you can still see your shoes and legs.

kitty on

Lila, short curvy girls (excuse me, “hourglass” girls) do not look good in those skinny jeans either. They look really bad on anyone who is not tall and bone thin. Sorry. Guess that why everyone is “whining” about them. They look ugly on normal girls.

Colette on

kitty, I’m five foot three and look good in skinny jeans, so I don’t think height is the reason many people can’t wear them.

AnnieM on

Kitty, I hear you loud and clear (and agree).

Lila on

Dear Kitty,
LOL, No need to get mad. You missed the point…I didn’t say I liked really skinny, stuck to my ankle jeans ala Nicole Richie or anything. I wear straightish jeans b/c I think they’re more flattering than big flares. You can go look at the jeans I’m talking about on couturecandy.com. And there’s no need to mock my use of hour glass shaped. I’m size 6 and it just describes my shape!

rachel on

Eva Mendez knows how to dress but these jeans which I think is going to be in style (which they’re ugly) looks terrible on her.

Margaret on

I don’t like it very much.

georgie on

i don’t care what style is in. i always wear moderate flares or boot-cuts – cause they’re the only style that suits me! in anything else i look like a fat cow.

Maryse on

These pants are not my style. I think if anyone can pull this look off, more power to ya! I like wide-leg jeans, but not this wide. I also like boot-cut jeans and I still on occasion wear the skinny jeans, but not much anymore. Eva Mendes looks beautiful, and she pulls the look off quite well.

Maggie on

I think that these jeans are pretty okay…if you want to draw attention to all that material on your legs. But they are much more flattering than skinny jeans…but I really prefer something in the middle–some nice, boot cut jeans with a flare. Oh, and some really cute boots! And seriously, where did her feet go???

stella lakiotis on

WOW! These pantslook so nice on Eva Mendes. Persomally I have not any problem to wear them because they are prettiest and much more flattering than the skinny pants.I love this pants style and I am too glad wearing them any time of the day. I prefer my wide leg pants to be quite long so I don’t care if my feet are not seeming under the hem. I feel so nice and cool to wear them so I don’t care if someone will mock me when I stroll with them.I like to wear them when I stroll in the city or I go for shopping even if I go to my friends house.There also too comfortable and sometimes I wear them and at home because my fiance loves them. So girls don’t freak with them.Just relax, put them on and enjoy them.

HeatherL on

Eva’s jeans look great! I bought a pair of wide-legged Levis last week. As soon as I saw them I loved them. They’re very retro, very Lana Turner film noir. Also they’re incredibly comfortable and stylish, for those of us who run a mile from the ‘rock chick’ look!

Julia on

DO NOT LIKE!

Jenn on

Where can i find the handbag she is holding???

Kelly on

hmmm… wide legs like those are TOO MUCH. I prefer the more tailored wide legs, they look so good!!
