You know all those people out there (and by people we mean celebrities) who claim to feel most “themselves” in jeans and a tee? Eva Mendes is not one of those stars. In fact, she tries to avoid denim whenever possible.

“I’m always in dresses, in skirts — I think they’re so easy,” the actress says in the May issue of FLARE magazine. “People are always saying, ‘I love jeans, they’re so casual and easy,’ but I think jeans aren’t easy. They’re my worst nightmare.” Read More

Eva Mendes has only been designing her collection for New York & Company for a few seasons now, but her design experience goes way back: She created her own prom gown. But unlike many girls who went to prom in the ’90s, she has no regrets about the dress — thanks to a little inspiration from Julia Roberts.

“It actually wasn’t that bad! Considering it was early ’90s and I styled it after the red dress that [Roberts] wears in Pretty Woman,” she tells PEOPLE at an L.A. event for her latest New York & Company collection. “I saw it when I was in ninth grade, and I held on to the image of her in that red dress … in the four years I didn’t deviate from my love of that dress. I just made a short — and what I thought was a cooler — version of that. Looking back, I could have done a lot worse!” (See the photo, below!)

She may not be wearing rom-com-inspired ballgowns anymore, but her style is still super-girlie. “I’m definitely not a ‘jeans’ girl. I’m a dress and skirt girl, and I think that I gravitate towards things that are very feminine,” she says. “I think the way the ladies in the ’50s and ’60s did it, they knew what they were doing back then.”

As an actress, Eva Mendes knows pressure. But she’s never felt it quite like she has in her latest venture: Designing a line of clothing for New York & Company, which hits stores today.

“The challenging part of this process was knowing that I had women, especially my sisters, counting on me to make them look good,” Mendes tells the Huffington Post. “I take this very seriously … I can’t wait to get feedback from women about what works for them and what doesn’t.
