Confession: our first thought was that Eva Mendes looks like our grandma's old lampshade in this funky black dress.
Then we looked again and decided it has more of a spider web feel. And finally, after a few more minutes of examining, we landed on something between a car wash and those beaded curtains from the '70s. But, long story short, we couldn't stop staring at The Place Beyond the Pines star!
The stringy halter neckline is gorgeous against the Eva's fit frame and the column cut hugs the rest of her in all the right places. Yes, the fringe may be a bit over the top in theory, but it's actually subtle on account of the all-black palette. Plus, simple black pumps and side-swept hair keep it classic outside of that bit of crazy.
We say, "gotta have it," on this one. What's your take?
