Mendes will be doing the red-carpet circuit again with her new film ìThe Place Beyond the Pines,î co-starring Ryan Gosling, coming out later this month. But while she lands more often than not in the fashion 'do' column, Mendes says she knows she's made a few mistakes along the way, including one look she calls ìPrincess Jasmine gone wrong.î (AP Photo/Rick Maiman, file)

In an interview with the AP published Tuesday, Eva Mendes reevaluates this red carpet look with a healthy dose of self-deprecation.

The actress pokes fun at her previous fashion offenses, including the memorable lilac gown she wore to the premier of Ghost Rider in 2007. Here's what she said:

I really am the first one to laugh at myself and point out what a horrible fashion choice I made or point out an unflattering photo. About six years ago I went to the `Ghostrider' premiere in New York City and it was cold and snowing , I don't know why I'm sharing that, I think I'm trying to justify , and I had my dress on but I had to finish my hair and makeup in the back of an SUV.

It was a beautiful dress, but the way I put everything together, it was a Princess Jasmine gone wrong. The strapless, purple dress with necklaces and a hair in a really high braid. It's not a good look.
