Eva Mendes has teamed up with New York & Company to launch her first fashion line, Eva by Eva Mendes.
The 39-year-old actress looked gorgeous in a fitted black pencil skirt as she launched her debut collection in New York, teamed with a sheer white blouse and statement necklace.
A firm favourite on the red carpet, Eva has the style pack eagerly awaiting her first designs. Talking about the project with The Huffington Post, she said, “I take this very seriously. There isn’t a piece in my collection that I won’t wear.”
She also admitted, “The challenging part of this process was knowing that I had women, especially my sisters, counting on me to make them look good.”
Despite New York & Co’s reputation for workwear-focused designs, the first look pieces suggest floaty frocks and floral prints will feature heavily in Eva’s namesake collection.
