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.
