Published Ad Review Eva Mendes

The first time I saw Eva Mendes she was naked with Denzel Washington in the movie Training Day. She's been naked for PETA, and now she's naked in the May 2008 issue of Vogue Italia. But, here's the thing...I have categorized these pictures into 3 areas.

1. Fashion/Artsy/Sexy (okay)

2. Weird, and (not okay)

3. Double Weird (not okay)

It starts getting weird. What's that on her face? (picture above). It could be many things. To be continued...
I would now like to interview you Eva... Why are you in this very uncomfortable position? Is it because of art? Is it because of fashion? Are you trying to be sexy?
.....I didn't think so either!! (Weird)

ART, FASHION, SEXY?? NO, NO, NO!! Nice Christian Louboutins though!! (Weird)
ummm....Licking a stocking... (Weird)
Double Weird!! Let's flatten Eva's breasts with a glass and take a picture. (Again, Double Weird)
Now they are just going crazy... (double weird)
This is when you can call me completely insane. I think this shot is perfect. It's that sexy, fashion, artsy weird, double weird shot with high shocking value. (color)

Same for this one (black and white).

Artsy, Sexy, Fashion, weird, double weird perfect combo.

This is only my humble opinion. I know that I wouldn't be writing about this spread if she wasn't naked and you wouldn't be looking at it or reading about it. It's all about the dollars and cents (sense). I just want to know how long it will take the public before they become immune to this kind of public display.

I think the nudity (especially the crazy photos - stocking licking?) take away from the shoot's great styling.

I saw the sucking her own toes in someone else's blog, but the rest definitely gets weirder.

You guys are a bunch of squares. These are classic fetish poses that go back to the 1940's. I love them.
