FLARE’s May 2014 cover star is… Eva Mendes! Herewith, she shares a concise style manifesto.
ON HOW SHE HATES SKINNY-JEANS:
“I’m always in dresses, in skirt—I think they’re so easy. People are always saying, ‘I love jeans, they’re so casual and easy,’ but I think jeans aren’t easy. They’re my worst nightmare.”
ON HER MOTHER’S IDEAS ABOUT HER STYLE:
“My mother always says she wants to see me in more fitted things! She’s always saying, ‘Show off your body, it’s not always going to be like this!’”
ON CHOOSING WHAT TO WEAR:
“It’s an important part of my day, what I choose to wear and put out there in the world. I also have to remember that I probably will be photographed at the gas pump.”
