Eva Mendes was a vision of retro sexiness in her black lace Dolce & Gabbana dress at the 2012 AFI Fest red carpet in LA. We can't stop staring at her entire ensemble, especially her sheer lace sleeves and sweetheart neckline. We also love the demure knee-length hemline of her little black dress, as well as her choice of accessories: black Brian Atwood pumps, an embellished black Sergio Rossi clutch, a cuff bracelet, and oversize drop earrings. To get Eva's nighttime ladylike look, shop one of our favorite black lace dresses below. Remember to pick something fitted, preferably with a longer hemline, to show off your figure and really nail that retro vibe. Also check out other stars in black lace dresses, perfect for the upcoming holiday party season.
