    Net-A-Porter continues to wow us with their spot-on choices in cover stars. This week’s issue of THE EDIT nailed it yet again, with Eva Mendes looking oh-so-very La Dolce Vita in new-season standouts from Alexander McQueen, Anna Sui, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Moschino, and Valentino.

    Ms. Gosling Mendes was tight-lipped when questioned about Ryan (standard) but she did reveal an unlikely path woven to acting. Turns out, the actress entertained the idea of becoming a nun or an astronaut before hot-footing it to Hollywood. But, her latest career aspiration? Fashion designer! Yes, the The Place Beyond The Pines star is joining Katie Holmes, Gwyneth, and so many others, by launching her very own line of clothes inspired by her retro va-va-voom look. Asked about her basic style commandments, Eva offers two easy-to-follow rules: “If you go short, no cleavage or anything super-fitted; if you’re covered from head to toe, you can go as fitted as you like.” Spoken like a true pro. Thanks for the tip, Eva!
