Mena Suvari: Dress Held Up By Tape And A Prayer

By: Amanda Crum - June 18, 2012

Mena Suvari rocked a dress recently at a party for the Beverly Hills Hotel’s 100th anniversary that’s getting a lot of attention.

Suvari, who is newly divorced from husband of 18-months Simone Testito, says she never thought she’d be a two-time divorcee at just 33, but is embracing her new life, and that comes complete with baring some skin. The “American Pie” actress has been seen on several red carpets lately in barely-there dresses, prompting some to believe she’s sowing some wild oats now that she’s single again.

“I had never really taken time to cultivate who I was… I’ve felt drained by it,” she said after the divorce. “But I feel like I’m really, finally, content at this point in my life. I’m accepting of who I am and how diverse I am and honoring that. All of it.”

If “content” equals “booty flashing”, then she’s certainly nailed that part; at a recent screening of “American Reunion” in London, she bent over in a tight black dress and unwittingly flashed the photogs her rump, which immediately became fodder for the interwebs.

Her latest “controversial” look is a little black dress that appears to be held up with a dash of hope and some double-stick tape, although if you look closely you can see a small, invisible plastic strap along her ribcage. Sorry to ruin the illusion for you, kids. At any rate, she looks great and is flauntin’ what she’s got while the flauntin’ is good.

    I support her in her effort to cultivate who she really is and would be glad to offer any assistance in this endeavor. Yes, indeedy.

    Mena is young and she knows that sex sells, but on the other hand does one wonder why none of her marriages last? Surely men marry her for sex. Maybe one day she will grow up before it is too late and not fall for the same fate as the talented and gorgeous Brittany Murphy. Mena is a good actress with a lot of talent and promise, she needs to have good people in her corner and she needs to stay strong.

      please get a life, it is simply a pic of a particularly hot actress, that’s it. We don’t need your dime store diagnosis.

      Evidently you missed the follow up on Brittany Murphy’s cause of death-she died from mold poisoning in her house not the oft-misquoted “drug induced” death.

    her dres may be hels on by “tape and a prayer” but that isn’t the direction my prayers would be going!

  • Michelle

    If you look closely her dress my have tape holding it in place but there is sheer material on the back is what really makes the difference.
