Eva Mendes eyes fashion opportunities

(Continued)

AP: What's the clothing line you're working on?

Mendes: It's with New York & Company. I'm working on it right now for the fall line and working with vintage-inspired prints and cuts but not making it retro in any way. I come from a family where the women are more voluptuous so I like to cater to that.

AP: Is this something you always wanted to do?

Mendes: Not really. It crept up on me slowly. Then I realized this is where my passion lies. I think one of the great things about being an actress nowadays is we can wear so many hats. If you're creative in one area it usually seeps into another, like my home. I feel like my home is a set in a way — a lived-in set. I love to production design my own home.

AP: Does the look of your home change based on what's going on in your life?

Mendes: All the time. It's so fun. I love listening to music, rearranging my furniture, playing with materials. Flower arrangements. I make flower arrangements for every room in the house. That's really peaceful for me.
