Eva Mendes may be one of the world’s most beautiful people, but that doesn’t mean she’s a diva when it comes to her fashion choices. The star, who is showing off her bouncy locks as the new face of Pantene, says she loves to incorporate comfort into her daily look. “I’m all about little house dresses,” she tells PEOPLE of the most comfortable outfit in her wardrobe. “I have so many. If I run out to grab a coffee or something I’m usually in … some kind of little dress,” which she says she loves because it reminds her of what her mom used to wear. “I [even] have a couple that were my mother’s.” But when it comes to what truly makes Mendes feel sexy, less is more. “I feel most beautiful when I start the day,” she tells PEOPLE. “I feel most beautiful in bed, in the morning, tousled hair and a blanket.” Read more from Mendes in this week’s PEOPLE, on newsstands tomorrow! –Kim Peiffer, with reporting by Pamela Edwards-Christiani
