Fugs and Fabs: The Premiere of That Movie Where Ryan Gosling Met Eva Mendes


Eva Mendes always somehow looks like she’s annoyed. It’s exhausting.

    I think Eva’s dress aims for vintage-y flare, misses and lands in mother of the bride territory. Also, that’s a whole lotta orange.

      Agreed. It’s very Frumpy McDowdy on her.

        I think that compared to the jumpsuit she wore yesterday, this is GREAT!

          I never realized Eva was so well-endowed until I saw her in this dress.

            I think I’ve seen her boobs in “We Own The Night” & “Training Day” and she IS well endowed!

      Agreed. And it reminds people that she’s older than him, since he often dresses like a college kid.

        Oops, the “Agreed” was meant to be to the “mother-of-the-bride looking” comment, not the “well-endowed” comment.

    Methinks Bradley Cooper got restylane in his cheeks.

      I don’t think he has a filler in there – he’s still got his sort of trademark slightly chubby cheeks with a bit of an indent under the eyes… but something looks different. He looks fresher, younger.

      Skin resurfacing, maybe?

        Something has been done for sure. He looks like Ralph Fiennes in the closeup!

    The dress is precisely the wrong color for Eva. Don’t get me wrong – it’s less hideous than the garish Easter Peep dress she wore last time I saw her here, but why so Ladies Who Lunch?

    Ryan needs to stop dressing ironically, it makes me tired.

      Also, the sleeves don’t fit. If it isn’t vintage, there’s no excuse for that. Actually, even if it is. Get it tailored to a bracelet sleeve. Or don’t. Because, as noted, she should never wear that color.

      Yes. It is a TERRIBLE color on her. That was my reaction as well. I can’t tell where the dress ends and the Eva begins. She’s got gorgeous skin, but the dress’s hue is too close to her own coppery undertones. The end result is: PUMPKIN.

    Two thoughts:

    1) I love the make-under Eva Mendes got for the movie, at least from what I’ve seen.She really is gorgeous, so I’ll excuse the fact that she’s dating Ryan Gosling instead of him with Rachel McAdams (tear).

    2) Patricia Clarkson is the sassiest broad around. I want to BE her.

      Maybe the reason she always looks slightly irritated is that the ghost of Rachel-past has always been lurking in the shadows and is now officially back on the market. Knowing that most people would rather have my boyfriend hook up with his ex would make me pretty stabby too!

    I dont even care if I get flamed for this or if you revoke my GFY membership card…I really want to be in a Ryan/Bradly sandwich. I think it would be a really REALLY good time.

    (Really, tho, please dont kick me out of gfy!)

    • Sajorina

      That might be my favorite kind of sandwich (me between those two), after chicken parmesan and meatball sub!

      Sorry; open faced tartine Gosling all the way. Cooper DOES look like a waxwork and wax don’t belong in a sandwich.

      That said, what is UP with Gosling and the velvet? He’s starting to remind me of George Costanza, if only in sartorial proclivities.

      And yeah, apricot is usually heinous on olive Latina skin. As are those fancy shoes. Also, the only thing I remember Mendes being in is that horrible remake of The Women. As her predecessors in the role of “cheesy but feisty other woman” were Joan Crawford and Joan Collins, I was aghast at her involvement , but no more so than for the rest of the cast, actually. It was terrible.

    The only movie with Eva Mendes that I’ve enjoyed is “The Other Guys”, in which she was soooo freaking funny! And I would love this dress without the sleeves because it’s a nice color, it fits her beautifully and I love the shoes! Plus her hair & makeup are nice!

    My answer to Ryan Gosling’s question is “YES, I want a jolt!” And Patricia Clarkson ROCKS!

      I agree . She’s pretty great in ‘The Other Guys.’ She surprised me and showed that she doesn’t take herself too seriously. Similar to Jennifer Aniston in ‘Horrible Bosses’ or Olivia Wilde in ‘Butter.’

        It is perhaps lowbrow of me — but I liked her in Hitch and Stuck on You. Bad dress — it happens.

    I think they are all so talented and they look great. Eva’s dress is a bit mother of the bride but at least she never looks like a trollop. She is lovely. Patricia is awesome and what is restylane that Bradley might have in his cheeks?

    Hate, hate, hate, hate the dress. It looks like she’s about to dance on the Lawrence Welk show.

    • Kristin

      Ah yes, the fabled Lawrence Welk costumes. My family used to enjoy fugging that show when it ran on Saturday nights in the 1970s. The effect of all that bright chiffon was heightened when the men wore matching suits, so Gosling needs a pumpkin polyester jacket. It would amp up his hipster irony SO nicely.

    I do not hate the dress, but agree it would be better on a young starlet – then it might look sweet. Sweet is not good for Mendes. Also, so much yes to everyone who said it isn’t a good color for her.

    Cooper IMO is very dapper here overall, and I like the workboot detail, but those gimmicky lapels are annoying me.

      Sweet mother of Milan, I hadn’t noticed the lapels.

        I really need a “laugh” emoticon for “Sweet mother of Milan”! That was inspired.

        And they ARE totally crackballs, aren’t they? Like… Vegas magician lapels. Yet the rest of the suit is really very tasteful.

    BC is currently filming a movie with Amy Adams that’s set in the 70s and requires him to have a perm. I think that explains the hair.

    • Helen

      Oh yeah. I forgot, somewhere on the interwebs I saw a picture of him with the perm rollers in. And you know, men have been getting curly perms since that era, yet… still always funny!

    The dress is matronly, “mother of the bride” and does nothing for her. I never remember what she’s in either. Same with Jessica Biel, she seems to be everywhere, but why.

    Whatareyoutalkingabout, Bradley don’t cut your hair like, EVER! Same went for Ben Affleck and his Argo look, SIGH.

    I like Eva in this dress. She is very Loren like in this.

    I actually like Eva’s outfit, it’s vintage but not dowdy… it’s not too sexy, which is a relief, but it’s borderline “goody-two-shoes.” She could be a dash sexier and still look nice. I think she is a gorgeous woman, but I also can’t really name anything she’s been in off the top of my head, even though I know I’ve seen her in something… she’s just not a particularly interesting actress to me. I just read somewhere that she thinks she’s going to marry Ryan Gosling… sorry but IT’S NOT GONNA LAST, GIRL

    Apricot is NOT her color. She is gorgeous, and has a very curvaceous figure which is never best served with a high round neck or anything too flowy. Sometimes I would love to give lots of celebs a night of ‘What not to wear’ but then where would that leave GFY if everyone dressed with grace and taste?! It’s one of the small joys in my day. Thanks ladies

    Tammy 1 looks amazing in maybe just a coat. Bradley Cooper DOES look a bit like a wax figure, but I am enjoying his suit. I think Eva looks good in that color, I just think the dress is cut weird under her boobs. I don’t really get it. And….sorry to everyone who disagrees, but I just don’t find Ryan Gosling to be good looking. Now, that doesn’t mean he’s not sometimes HOT. His personality in both movies and real life comes off as SUPER sexy. Just, when he’s standing there for a pic, and he’s still wearing a shirt, doesn’t he look kind of (really) dorky?

      I’m glad someone said it first… I also don’t see anything at all attractive about Ryan Gosling – to the point that I find him kind of Forrest Gump-ish.

    Long time reader; had to finally comment because I have to know where to get a rose brooch like that! I’d also take Eva’s dress, though in a different color because it wouldn’t look good on me, either. I’ll happily take her arm candy, too!
