Eva Mendes' mother offers outfit verdicts

Eva Mendes always has her very own style consultant at hand - her mother emails her with verdicts on the actress' red carpet outfits.

The Hitch star regularly makes the fashion pages of magazines with her glitzy gowns, but Mendes' mum chimes in first with her thoughts on the clothes her daughter has picked.

Mendes says, "Normally I do something on the red carpet and wherever I am in the world she sends me a full email within minutes with everything she thought of my outfit.

"It's really super cute. It's not like crazy. It is never negative, it is always constructive. It's like, 'Eva, I don't know about that lipstick but that dress was gorgeous!' And then it will say, 'Hmm, your shoes? But your hair was lovely!'"
