Side gig: Home Decor Designer
Eva Mendes has done her fair share of modeling and acting over the years. But in 2008, the Cuban-American beauty boldly ventured into brand-new territory: designing her own home-decor line. With the launch of "Vida," a bedding and dinnerware line sold exclusively at Macy's, Mendes was able to bring her secret passion for design to life.
"Vida is all about easy luxury — the colors, fabrics and textures that I live and love, brought to life in a stylish, comfortable and affordable way," the actress said at the time.
Her collection includes lush five-piece bedding sets and stylish dinnerware, each inspired by some of her favorite locales, including Catalina Island and the Amalfi Coast.
