Style Rx: Eva Mendes's Jumpsuit Suffers From a Fatal Accessories Overdose

Who: Eva Mendes

Where: Visiting N.Y.C.’s Museum of Modern Art

Diagnosis: Major accessories OD. When done right, a jumpsuit can be fun and sexy. When bogged down with a wide belt, shiny booties and a quilted clutch — all in clashing shades — the look is D.O.A. If someone as gorgeous as Eva Mendes can’t resuscitate this ensemble, it’s clear that it desperately needs a style surgeon.

Prognosis: Keep the jumpsuit but excise all the accessories. Because the jumpsuit is busy enough on its own, pull hair into a ponytail to eliminate visual clutter. Add barely-there strappy sandals (like this $99 Guess pair), a slim but interesting belt (we love this studded Gorjana style) and streamline that clutch (maybe a simple gold number, like this $100 Kate Spade New York?) for a look that’s turning heads for the right reasons.

Eva Mendes's Worst Red Carpet Look Was 'Princess Jasmine Gone Wrong'

Eva Mendes is one of the most reliably stylish stars on the red carpet these days, but she admits even she would like to burn certain outfits from her past.

“I really am the first one to laugh at myself and point out what a horrible fashion choice I made or point out an unflattering photo,” she says in an interview, noting in particular the 2007 Ghostrider premiere.

“I had my dress on but I had to finish my hair and makeup in the back of an SUV,” she continues. “It was a beautiful dress, but the way I put everything together, it was a Princess Jasmine gone wrong. The strapless, purple dress with necklaces and a hair in a really high braid. It’s not a good look.”

Nowadays, she rarely gets it wrong — which is why she’s the face of New York & Company (for which she’s also designing) and Vogue Eyewear. But that still doesn’t mean she feels pressure to look all done up every time she leaves the house.

“That’s a pressure I would never put on myself because I wouldn’t want other women to feel that pressure,” she says. “We all have our good days and our bad days … Usually when you see my hair up in [a] scarf it’s really not going for a look, it’s going for function because I didn’t have time to wash my hair.”

What Sofia Vergara Has to Say About J. Lo's Style

Jan/12/2013 at 04:00 PM ET

This Sunday we’ll be busy making our own best-dressed list for the Golden Globes, but recently, we turned the tables and asked celebs to tell us which stars they think are the most fashionable in Hollywood.

We started with Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara and she said that she’s currently style crushing on Jennifer Lopez. Watch the video to find out which other stars made Vergara’s list (one of them might really surprise you!).

While it was Charlize Theron and Eva Mendes whom Vergara named, fashionista Rachel Bilson had very different picks. As you heard in the video, she’s all about the envelope-pushing trendsetters. “Ashley Olsen, I love her style,” Bilson said, adding, “Alexa Chung — very cool. Sienna Miller.”
