We loved Eva Mendes before we pinned her down for an adorable interview about her just-launched New York & Company collaboration. But after speaking candidly with the star about her dream job (It may involve Mickey Mouse), what it was like working with Nick Cage (It may have involved ligers), and her beauty insecurity (We don't think she has one), we're even more in love. Plus, her pieces are totally wearable (and affordable!) for any 9 to 5...even if our day-to-day may not involve QT with one beloved blonde whose name rhymes with cryin' flossling.
