“What, THIS old thing?”
Fugger: Eva Mendes
I was going to put this to a poll, but it turns out that the more I look at it, the more I love it:
It’s all STRIPED and NAUTICAL — two of my favorite adjectives, along with “twee,” “burly,” and “pantywaisted,” which I am fairly sure I made up one night. The difference being, of course, that you might LIKE looking nautical in your sassy 70s stripes, and hardly anyone appreciates being told they look like a twee, burly pantywaist.
Little does Eva Mendes know, there is a woman standing behind her who is thinking, “How odd, last week for her silver anniversary I gave Margo a bottle of merlot in a bag that looked JUST like this.”
Our photo service noted that this photo of Eva Mendes featured “a romper dress,” which seems like a contradiction. It’s either a romper, or a dress. That’s like saying someone is having a burrito salad:
Whatever it is…I am concerned that it’s not the best idea Eva’s had recently. Let’s just leave it at that, shall we?
That is so pretty. It fits her flawlessly, and the colors make me think of my favorite time of year: autumn. I love the temperatures, the foliage, the pumpkin and the promise of Christmas and all those PRESENTS, and then football, my GOD, FOOTBALL, holy God I have to organize my fantasy draft, who the HELL am I going to pick this year now that half the league is hot for tandem backfields, and I still don’t support white football pants, and do we think the Steelers are going to sling the rock downfield much this year with Byron Leftwich under center or will it be a dump-off passing game to the tight end and the tailbacks, and HOLD THE PHONE, the first pre-season game is on Sunday and it’s going to involve Ocho Cinco and Terrell Owens against the Cowboys. JEEBUS LOVES US ALL.
Sigh. Thank you, Eva. I needed that.

Not sure I think the shift on its own is all that flattering, either, but what I really want to know is where she’s stashing the bustle — because that’s exactly how she wore her hair to the premiere, so she must’ve been headed that way… Where IS it? Was it one of the curtains in the limo? Was her boyfriend wearing it, and he gave it to her to tie around her waist as a sign that they’re going steady? And does it make you like or dislike the original dress more knowing that thing was detachable? Personally, I will only sign off on it if I find out she flung it over a puddle so that Will Ferrell didn’t have to wet his shoes.
