I actually don’t mind this dress — it might even be kind of cute.

But on someone else. Something about it just looks off to me on Eva Mendes (and not just the fact that it’s poofing out in the back like she has an actual tuffet sewn under there for any spontaneous curds-and-whey snacking she might want to do) . Like a bad game of dress-up — say, how little brothers feel when their older sisters treat them like human dolls. Which is not to say I think Eva Mendes looks like somebody’s little brother; just that… I don’t know.  I guess I’ve never seen her image as being quite this Mad Men/retro before, so I feel like I’m looking at a paper doll, and in a second someone will fold back the tabs at her neck and waist and lift that off and replace it with something that suits her a bit better — even, nay especially, if it is insane — and then maybe unhook her shoes and pick ones that don’t make her feet look like skis, and then we’ll all be on our way without disruption of the Earth’s axial spin.
