EVA ON NUDITY: Eva Mendes showed up to the Calvin Klein show on Thursday wearing more clothing than she does in the brand’s sexy new fragrance ads. “I knew that in good old Calvin Klein fashion there’d be a little controversy,” said the actress, who appears completely naked in the commercial. “But I’m actually a little surprised at how far the attention has gone. I’ve never been banned before. It’s very rock ’n’ roll; I kind of like it.” Mendes bears no regrets about participating. “I want to do more. I want keep pushing the envelope,” she said.

It’s not the first time the brunette has bared all publicly — she went nude opposite Denzel Washington in 2001’s “Training Day” and with Joaquin Phoenix in 2007’s “We Own the Night.” “Those are not only amazing actors but they’ve won Oscars and been up for Oscars so that’s a big deal,” she explained. “It’s not something I take lightly. But when it makes sense, I absolutely go for it.”

TAR-GET’S NEW LOOK: A crowd descended on the Target Bullseye Bodega on West 57th Street Wednesday evening to celebrate the pop-up shop’s launch today along with three other Bullseye Bodegas in Manhattan. Many of the 600 guests that passed through the store spent time cooling their heels in a line that wound to Sixth Avenue. Among the most popular items were the Anya Hindmarch clutches, John Derian melamine trays and Sonia Kashuk cosmetic bags. Of course, speaking to Target’s design partners was like speaking to the converted, including Jonathan Saunders, Dean Harris and makeup artist Napoleon Perdis. Many of the 22 designers whose products were for sale at the bodega were in attendance, including Michael Graves, Miranda Morrison and Kari Reeves, Liz Lange, Thomas O’Brien and Kashuk. Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld, Emmy Rossum, Vanessa Minnillo, Emma Roberts, Michelle Trachtenberg, Perry Reeves and Sanaa Lathan also dropped by. “I’m a Target fan,” said Debbie Mazar. “I’m a mother. I shop for the kids and I buy diapers. I buy shorts for myself. I’ve actually worn some [T-shirts] on the red carpet. I love that in this economy you can go to a store and not feel ripped off.”
