Eva Mendes made her first public appearance in over six months at the opening of the New York & Company store in Miami to debut her brand new fashion line.
The actress showed off an aqua-marine Alonza one shoulder maxi dress from her new collection while walking the red carpet and talking to the press. Eva welcomed her second daughter with partner Ryan Gosling just under a year ago, and explained to the reporters at the event: “In some ways, it’s been more challenging to get back in shape after my second daughter. Yet it’s not as hard as I thought it would be, because I’m always running around with the kids. I never sit down—I’m on the move all day.”
She also commented on some of her new healthy habits, “I don’t keep junk food at home anymore, because I’m trying to set a good example. So there are no more Krispy Kremes for me to grab.”
On the launch of her new line with New York & Company, she added: “It is such a thrill to open more stores, especially in the Miami Area. I was born in Miami, so this city has always been dear to me.”
