Eva Mendes shows spring is here at 'Place Beyond the Pines' premiere

Apr 01, 2013

When the cast of a movie is as stunning as the actors backing up the film, "The Place Beyond the Pines," it's no wonder the red carpet is sizzling hot. While Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling looked handsome as usual, Eva Mendes stole the show in a vibrant orange Prada dress and metallic shoes, complemented by dazzling spring pendants pinned at her waist. Mendes always knows how to accessorize, and on top of these fashion-forward pendants, she added tasteful crystal earrings and a bright turquoise ring to her look, reminding everyone at the New York premiere of the film that spring is officially here.

Although the Latina actress is publicly dating her costar Ryan Gosling, the pair kept their distance at the red carpet event, arriving separately and never really spending enough time beside each other for a photo opportunity. They did, however, sit together when they went inside the theater, surrounded by family and friends, Yahoo reports. 

"They knew all eyes were on them and wanted to keep the night about celebrating the movie, not their relationship," one source told the news outlet. 

While you may not be able to land Ryan Gosling as your boyfriend, you can emulate Mendes' style with a few simple additions to your style wardrobe. 

First, her trendy take on the traditional brooch is certainly going to make waves in the current style scene. These old-fashioned pieces that probably fill your grandmother's jewelry boxes are a great way to add sparkle or character to a basic outfit. Whether you pin one to your sweater, a headband, your waistline like Mendes or a jacket, you'll certainly get compliments for your innovative styling. 

If you're ready to take this classic look to the modern day, try the Crystal Goldtone Metal Enamel-Finish Multi-Color Dragonfly Pin or the Flower-Shaped Genuine Coral Leaf-Shaped Genuine Jade Goldtone Metal Ribbon Bouquet Pin, which would both add some springtime fun to any outfit.
