Eva Mendes attends the Eva Mendes for New York & Company Spring Launch Event held at the Los Cerritos Mall on Wednesday (March 19) in Cerritos, Calif.
The 40-year-old actress recently chatted with her People about designing her own prom dress back in high school and the inspiration for it was super cool!
“It actually wasn’t that bad! Considering it was early ’90s and I styled it after the red dress that [Julia Roberts] wears in Pretty Woman,” Eva said. “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!”
FYI: Eva is wearing an Eva Mendes for New York & Company dress and carrying an M2Malletier clutch.
