Mendes: I've had my style disasters

Eva Mendes said she ended up looking like a Disney princess at one red carpet event

Eva Mendes admits she has made style mistakes in the past, and says she doesn't need to "glam up" every time she goes out in public.

The stunning actress said that even though she often ends up in the fashion "do" column, and is even working on her own clothing line, she does not always get it right.

Eva, promoting her latest film The Place Beyond The Pines, recalled one memorable dress disaster as "Princess Jasmine gone wrong".

The 38-year-old actress 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 make-up 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."

Eva said she doesn't feel the pressure to look "done up" every time she leaves the house.

She said: "No, that's a pressure I would never put on myself because I wouldn't want other women to feel that pressure.

"We all have our good days and our bad days. We all have our days when we feel great and want to look great, and then we have our days where we just want to be in our sweats or our jeans or our sweats equivalent and throw our hair up in a bun or a cap."
