A lot of celebrities these days are using their Whole Foods shopping trips as a fashion pass—oversized shades, baseball cap, puffy jacket, you know the drill. Clearly Cuban-American bombshell Eva Mendes is not one of those celebs. Popping out for supplies at the West Hollywood outpost of the organic mothership, Ryan Gosling's equally-stunning-half looked every bit the superstar, and, might we add, ready for her Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights close-up.

The Shades
: A subtle cateye shape, Mendes' wide-rimmed specs have a retro flair for the dramatic, like she might burst into "When You're a Jet" at any moment.

The Shirt: Nobody puts Eva in the corner: The knotted short-sleeve button-down ups the fifties ante, and the high ponytail swings things in a Grease direction. The look is playful and summery without getting too themey.

The Skirt:The high-waist fit and flare plays to Mendes' curves and is also picnic-friendly, while the flowery pattern is perfectly suited to meeting mama Gosling.
