Eva Mendes's First Post-Baby Project: A Line of Bridesmaids Dresses!

Nov/07/2014 at 12:00 PM ET

Eva Mendes may have laid low throughout her pregnancy, but now it’s clear the new mom was definitely keeping busy while keeping out of sight. She designed a collection of bridesmaids dresses and accessories for her eponymous line with New York & Company — check it out below.

And yes, while we love looking at pretty dresses, we’re probably thinking what you’re thinking: Does designing for weddings mean she’s planning on walking down the aisle herself (and, ahem, dressing her maids in the looks à la Lauren Conrad)? It’s unclear, though right after Ryan Gosling and Mendes welcomed daughter Esmeralda in September, a friend of Mendes’s told PEOPLE that while the actress had said in the past she wasn’t planning to get married or have children, “with Ryan things are different … she’s very independent but she’s content with her partner. She finally found the person she really wants to be with.” In 2012, though, she told Marie Claire that she’d prefer not answering questions about marriage and babies, explaining, “Those are such boring topics to me… I am not that girl. I don’t like talking about things that I want in the future because I feel by verbalizing such things, they won’t come true.”

But even though wedding bells don’t seem to be ringing yet, Mendes has a definite appreciation for the bride’s big day.  “An important day needs a special dress,” said Mendes in a press release for the collection. “I love this collection for weddings and other special events. Feel great and dance the night away!”

The line consists of eight different dress styles, with a few structured A-line cuts (center), some longer draped jersey maxis and delicate chiffon gowns. They’ll all be available online and in stores in the last week of January 2015. The dresses range from $79 to $119 (a steal for bridesmaids looks!) and accessories (like jeweled hair pieces, statement necklaces and faux-flower corsages) will run you $22 to $42 for accessories.

Cannes 2014 Style Awards: The Beauty and Fashion Looks That Stood Out Above the Rest

May/23/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

While the official mission statement for the Cannes Film Festival describes it as an occasion to raise awareness of films that contribute to the development of cinema, we believe that it should be rewritten to, “An event where Hollywood’s finest take fashion risks in plunging gowns, bold lips and noteworthy hairstyles.” (But that’s just our opinion.)

Over the past week we have seen some looks that have left us absolutely envious (Seriously, have you seen Blake Lively lately?) and others that we would be way too timid to try. Take a look below to see which of your favorite celebs earned nods in our beauty and fashion awards for rocking some seriously striking trends.

Boldest Lip: The first award in our beauty category goes to supermodel Coco Rocha (left). While everyone else stuck with a basic red, nude or pink, she opted for a gothic-inspired deep purple to contrast her white Gabriela Cadena column gown. (Take that, Naomi Campbell!)

Biggest Braid: When Blake Lively stepped on the scene on day one of the festival, we didn’t think her enormous plait could be rivaled (see it from all sides here) — but Eva Longoria (center) proved us wrong. The actress showed up to the Foxcatcher premiere with a voluminous fishtail that mirrored her revealing cutout.

Most Enviable Waves ( … and dresses, and husband … ): But Lively did emerge victorious in another hair category. Though tons of Cannes attendees brought the glamour, we ultimately decided that her thick, luxurious waves from the Mr. Turner premiere were the perfect topper for her Chanel Couture iridescent dress.

Highest Slit: After a while, we started to lose track of the number of thigh-high slits we saw on the red carpet this week. Though every celeb seemed to want to show off their stems, we noticed one supermodel that ultimately deserved the prize. Adriana Lima’s Alexandre Vauthier Couture bustier dress (left) took the trend to new heights with an opening that rivals Angelina Jolie’s 2012 Oscars dress.

Maximum Number of Embellishments: We were mesmerized not only by the many colors on Marion Cotillard’s Maison Martin Margiela Couture mini (center), but also by the sheer number of beads, gems and other bric-a-brac it took to make this piece (we’re not going to start counting, but we can guess the total is well into the thousands).

Biggest “YAAAAS” Moment: The second one editor saw Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s look (right), she sent it to the rest of the team with the subject line, “Dead.” All eyes were on the model as she walked down the red carpet in her strapless Gucci Première gown with perfect free-flowing tresses and flawless makeup.

Did you see any other noteworthy looks on the Cannes red carpet that deserve a style award? Let us know in the comments section and tell us who was your favorite!

Eva Longoria Gets Bangs

New love, new look? Eva Longoria kicked off her Valentine’s Day celebrations over the weekend with brand-new bangs — and if that photo we linked to is any indication, boyfriend Jose Antonio Baston is loving the new do.

Longoria has been known for her long, caramel-highlighted locks since her breakout role in Desperate Housewives, the biggest change we can remember Longoria making is deciding to wear it up instead of down. So her new fringe is a fun surprise, and gives the star a sort of youthful, bohemian vibe that’s an interesting contrast to the red carpet glamour queen she’s known for being.
