Eva-va-va-VOOM!


I just can't get me enough of Ms. Mendes.

Not sure if it's her always glimmered to the hilt nut-brown skin, her sultry you-want-this-don't-you? photog face, those tremendous runner's calves (she claims to run 4 miles a day even on vacation) or her reliably ASJINE-approved sense of asset-flaunting, sky-high-heel-complementing, ladylike style, but whatever it is she's got, I not only want a piece but a wing, a drumstick and a nice juicy breast to go with it.

Perhaps it's that she has so many nice features from which to choose - legs, shoulders, skin, face, hair, arms, back - and so very few flaws - under-the-radar longtime boyfriend, having starred in a Will Smith movie - that I'm simply, utterly and completely in awe. I mean, only Eva could rock a demure, loose-fitting gold sheath, oversized black clutch and neutral slingback platform peep toes, an ensemble that on most women would look ho-hum, and knock it so far out of the park at this past weekend's Valentino-athon in Rome that women like Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway and even the usually sublime Sienna Miller (though here, um, well, uh...I'm at a loss) in their much more amped-up gowns, were forced to lower their heads in we're-not-worthy defeat.

"Eva Mendes boyfriend?" Yuck. For many years my goal has been to never be identified in "People Magazine" as "XXX boyfriend." How demeaning. I feel for the guy. (I've been successful by not dating anyone famous enough.)

she's tremendous. I agree 100% on this girl-crush.

Dave-

You'd honestly forego dating a woman like Eva simply because of the whole pride issue? Come now, I don't believe you...

brown rowergirl-

She's no Monica, but she's climbing the charts with that moisturized skin. She's almost in *my* league with that Summer glow :-)

I think you like her body so much because it looks strikingly similar to your own...

you freakin' narcissist.

hugs and kisses!

I'd be Mr. Eva Mendes ANY day of the week.

when did Anne get so thick? she's still gorgeous but didn't she used to be a bit thinner? I only ask because I just watched "The Devil Wears Prada" and compared to the pics you link to, she looks a good 20 heavier.

Oh whatever.

Johanna,

I can't tell you how many times I've had to tell Eva I wasn't interested. I had to change my phone number to get rid of the woman!... Nah, I'm not going to reject someone because they might become famous. I wouldn't avoid being seen in public with her either. But the whole "Eva Mendes boyfriend" thing has been something that annoyed me for years. And reading it there kinda set me off. He isn't "Eva Mendes boyfriend." He's his own man and he may be more interesting to hang out with than Eva. Not that Eva doesn't have certain other... qualities.

and you're forgetting she played denzel's wife not once but twice.

Loving the last black dress, I'm glad she's working with stylists now.
