Los Angeles: Actress Eva Mendes likes to wear clothes that have an emotional connect while dressing up for an occasion.

The 39-year-old talked about her preference on a TV chat show after seeing some of her old pictures, reports contactmusic.com.

"I love a turban, I know I`m like 50 years too late. And they`re actually my grandmother`s earrings that I wore that night, (who) I never met," said Mendes after going through the pictures.

"It was very emotional for me. I always think it`s important to wear something which is emotional to you," she added.

Even though people are ready to lend her a lot of things to wear, Mendes prefers something of her own.

"Everybody always wants to lend you things for these events and stuff and it`s all wonderful and you give it back at the end of the night, but I like to have a little emotional piece with me," she said.
