Eva Mendes's Love of Leopard Print: Sexy or Snooze-y?

Lately, we’ve been having deja vu when we see Eva Mendes on the red carpet — everything looks so familiar! And then we realized that it’s Eva’s love of leopard print that’s doing it. The actress has worn the animal print to no less than three events in the past month: a D&G gown at the N.Y.C. premiere of Live, Anna Molinari tent dress at the photocall for We Own The Night in Cannes, and a flowy gown for the Dolce & Gabbana party in Cannes. Eva’s always working a retro sex-kitten look, so the leopard print makes sense. But for the sake of telling her outfits apart, we wish she’d venture out of the animal kingdom a little more often. Tell us: Do you think leopard print is a good signature for Eva or should she try a new look?

Of course she looks good, she is beautiful but this look is definatley getting BORING! I am not really into the animal prints especially overpowering like this. I like a little print here and there but I think she needs a different look for sure!

The middle and right dresses are both overwelming her. They look too big or something.

The three dresses are ok and she looks sophisticated , but
sometimes it might be overwhelming,Years ago animal prints
were related to Autumn, because of the colors of different
tones of browns and black.
Still if you like the print go ahead. Yvonne

She needs to try something different. Being stuck on leaprord prints, or any print, make you look like a boring person.

Eva is gorgeous and she can pull any look off. She’s got beautiful skin for this leopard print too. I love the first dress. The dress is very sexy and compliments her sexiness. The middle dress is very fun and sexy and fits her perfectly. Love the shoes too. However, I’m not too crazy over the last dress. It’s not so much the pattern, it has to do more with the style of the dress. Like someone already stated Eva looks like she’s wearing drapes. The dress reminds me something Barbara Streisand would wear, LOL. The dress would look better if the puff sleeves were gone. Regardless, she’s gorgeous and she makes the dress that much better. Eva has class and sophistication which in returns radiates her sexiness. She’s absolutely gorgeous. She definitely can pull off the leopard print perfectly.

Her olive skin color goes well with this type of print, she’s a winner! i have a skirt with the same print and i always feel sexy wearing it!! Go Eva and her sexy self!!

zzzzzz . . . . I’m snoozing. (Once, maybe; twice, not so good; but three different outfits in the same boring print—Eva desperately needs to branch out!)
