Eva Mendes' style transformation

Published

"I'm definitely a dress girl," Eva Mendes once said. "I love how feminine dresses are! With one stylish piece, you're done."

The American actress of Cuban-American heritage has certainly lived by that. In Mendes' 13-year she's very rarely been seen outside of a dress. And while, like the rest of us, the star wore a few awkward ensembles in the early noughties - a black gown with a puffy yellow shawl, for example - she's always maintained her signature look of flattering midi-dresses and 60's inspired beehive hair.

Mendes, 40, is the face of Thierry Mugler's Angel fragrance and Vogue Eyewear and has created her two fashion collections with American brand New York & Company.

And with news of her pregnancy with her and partner Ryan Gosling's first child, we're excited to see what comes next for Eva and her style evolution.
