Spotted: Eva Mendez in a Canadian Tuxedo


The always stunning Eva Mendez was see walking her pup last week in Los Angeles rocking a chic Canadian Tuxedo. Leave it to her to step things up a bit with those sexy boots and pink overcoat. Now, when exactly is it going to be cold enough during the day in LA to wear our wool winter jackets?
