Eva Mendes took off her actress hat to play spokesmodel for a Saturday appearance at Nordstrom Aventura.
The 41-year-old, the new face of Estee Lauder’s New Dimension skincare line, looked absolutely stunning in a scarlet Halston Heritage draping, mid-calf dress.
Mendes is happy for the new gig but was missing 10-month-old daughter Esmeralda (dad is Ryan Gosling).
“Part of me is conflicted when it comes to work,” Mendes told CBS-4’s Lisa Petrillo. “I think that’s something most mothers can relate to.”
Never miss a local story.
The Place Beyond the Pines star signed bottles of the products for attendees and talked about — what else? — cosmetics.
“I was born at the beauty counter!” said Mendes, who was actually born in Miami but moved as a baby.
