Which Eva Mendes Do You Prefer, Sexy or Ladylike?

We believe Eva Mendes was born sexy, so I don't quite understand it when she hides her sensuality. I've noticed that the actress has been dressing ladylike, sometimes matronly, for most of her red-carpet appearances. Don't get me wrong, she's still stunning, but especially after seeing her in those steamy Calvin Klein underwear ads, I've been craving more of Eva's sexy side. I'm not saying she should dress risque, I am merely asking for more body-hugging silhouettes — less oversized florals and poufy skirts. Is that too much to ask for? Which Eva do you prefer — sexy or ladylike?

I like that she moves between both worlds but that particular dress is not to my taste(I hate giant floral prints; they remind me of the hideous dresses I wore when I was a little girl).

The sexy Latina thing is such a clique and being Hispanic myself I don't actually like the idea. I'm glad dressing "sexy" all the time doesn't seem to interest her. It gets boring and modern mainstream ideas of what sexy is can easily end up looking like the person's trying too hard.

I like that she doesn't feel the need to dress sexy all the time. She sends a positive image that it's okay to be demure - that's sexy too. (Not a fan of this particular dress, but I have seen her in others that look great.)

She looks beautiful either way so I say both. Just in this pic I don't think I am crazy about this dress for the ladylike look. She looks out of place in it.I have seen her in other ensembles where she looks a lot better.

Alternating between more demure and sweet and sexy is the best way to go. Sexy all the time gets tired real soon and leaves nothing to desire and obviously there is a fine line between sexy and tarty.

she looks better sexy, she looks frumpy in matronly dresses

i agree with most of you, she looks great sexy, but not many can pull off a "sexy" just being lady-like also! i think she looks great both ways

Should be a "neither" option. Not a fan at all.

Both! She is a great example of how you don't always have to be sexy to look beautiful but she also pulls off sexy very well! Props to her!

She's stunning either way :) And she manages to look sexy without looking tarty.
