A scorching hot Eva Mendes is posing for the cover of the January 2009 issue of Allure Magazine.

The Cuban-American bombshell is no stranger to sexy photo shoots. Mendes had a Calvin Klein perfume ad banned a few months ago because the adverts were considered to be too racy and risque; the video and the prints featured a nude Mendes sensuously and suggestively rolling around in bed.

Meanwhile, Allure went with a very different look on this cover than the ones we usually expect to see on the glossy. In the shoot, Eva is dressed in a very casual sheer tee shirt accompanied by a pair of beige baggy shorts.

The photos were shot by Michael Thomson.
