The real beauty of Eva Mendes

Today was a total whirlwind of a day … at day one of Lucky Magazine‘s LuckyFABB Conference, we were given a real treat: a one-on-one conversation between Lucky EIC Eva Chen and the beautiful, so-totally-down-to-Earth-it-will-blow-your-mind, just plain REAL Eva Mendes.

She laughs. Loudly. And often at herself.
She talks with her hands.
And she will literally stop, mid-answer, to show the audience how she transforms a scarf into a chic head wrap when she travels (she literally just borrowed a scarf from an audience member and did a live demonstration!).

She was wearing affordable items from her line with New York & Company, too … I love that she has a passion for making beautiful, feminine and classic clothes accessible to every woman. 
And that’s why we love her.
