Along with acting and being a new mom, Eva Mendes is also a fashion designer, and in an interview with Violet Grey she talked about her design aesthetics. On discussing her holiday collection for New York & Company, Mendes said she loves creating dresses that make “women feel beautiful.”
The photo shoot for the Violet Grey article took place at the Hollywood’s TCL Chinese Theater (previously known as Mann’s Chinese Theater), with Mendes wearing designs from her own collection.
“When I am designing with my partners I try to think about the woman I’m designing for, where she’s going, what her life is like,” said Mendes during the interview. “that’s why I don’t design jeans or many pants. I think the easiest way to make a woman look beautiful is to put her in a dress that fits her properly.”
The Coral Clusters Maria Dress worn by Eva Mendes is available for purchase and online the first week of December for $99.95. To check out the Eva Mendes Collection for New York & Company, please go to their official site.
