Eva Longoria Used To Wear Own Creations On The Red Carpet


Eva Longoria

The actress, producer, activist and businesswoman is set to launch her eponymous clothing line, which will debut at The Limited stores throughout the United States this August (16).

While The Limited is her first apparel venture, it is certainly not her first experience in creating clothes. The 41-year-old learned to sew as a child, honing her skills on curtains, pillows and duvets. And as a teenager she experimented with creating maxi-dresses that "had an elastic back that I would make for everyone."

Eva had a sewing machine in her trailer when she was starring on hit series Desperate Housewives and picked up tips from the show’s costume designer, Cate Adair. The brunette beauty also claims she has worn her own creations to Hollywood events.

Eva Longoria Lives In Mexico 'Part-time' To Be Closer To Fiance


Eva Longoria Victoria Beckham

The Telenovela actress became engaged to Jose 'Pepe' Baston last December (15), when the television executive proposed to the 41-year-old star while they were holidaying together in Dubai after two years of dating.

Now, Eva admits that because her beau is based in Mexico, she is spending a lot more time in the Latin American nation. She also shared with Britain's Hello! magazine that she was focusing on becoming a fluent Spanish speaker and feels it is important to be able to speak the language as "it ties in so much with my heritage".

The star was born in Texas to ninth-generation Mexican-American parents, and has recently shown a keen interest in Mexican workers' rights in the U.S. as well as immigration laws.

Eva Longoria's Chicken Scent


Eva Longoria Elizabeth Taylor

The former Desperate Housewives star never misses a trick when it comes to her appearance at showbiz events and always dazzles with her choice of outfit and beauty look. Wearing a fragrance is another part of her red carpet regime, but that isn't always the smell that gets attention.

"Most of my first scent memories involve food and cooking," she told Allure. "Garlic, onion - you put olive oil and garlic in a pan and it starts to fill the entire house with a beautiful aroma.

"No, I wouldn't want a perfume made out of that. But I cook a lot. I remember being on the red carpet one time... I get ready for the red carpet while I'm cooking a meal. So I was baking a chicken, I was doing my hair and makeup, and I'd get up and check the chicken, and I was going back and forth. And then I was on the red carpet at an event and somebody goes, 'You smell so good!' and I was like, 'It's chicken! I roasted a chicken!'"

The former Desperate Housewives star struggled with substance abuse after shooting to fame as Eva Longoria's boytoy lover on the hit drama series, and he ended up checking into rehab in 2007.

He admits he found comfort in prayer during his darkest days and he credits religion with helping him to eventually turn his life around.

"(Faith is) really important to me," Jesse told Fox 411. "I really discovered a connection with a higher power and with God as I understand him probably five years ago when I got sober through the 12 steps of Alcoholic Anonymous."

Eva Longoria: 'I Won’T Be Dictated To About Ethnicity'


Eva Longoria Julia Roberts Queen Latifah The New York Times Steven Soderbergh

The Latina actress is among a host of stars featured in The New York Times article ‘What It’s Really Like to Work in Hollywood* (*If you’re not a straight white male)’.

In the article, Eva, as well as Julia Roberts, Queen Latifah and America Ferrera, all give their thoughts on the issue of stereotyping within the film industry and dealing with issues of sexism and racism.

“Some white male casting director was dictating what it meant to be Latino,” the Telenovela star explained, recalling one incident where she was criticised for not sounding or looking ethnic enough for a role. “He decided I needed an accent. He decided I should (have) darker coloured skin.

America Ferrera Mistaken For Gina Rodriguez After Golden Globes Gag


America Ferrera Gina Rodriguez Eva Longoria

The former Ugly Betty actress joined Telenovela star Eva Longoria to present a gong at the annual prize-giving. The duo decided to use their time on stage to poke fun at the person responsible for mistaking Ferrera for Rodriguez during the nominations ceremony in December (15), and incorrectly labelling the photo on the Golden Globes' official Twitter account.

"Hi, I'm Eva Longoria, not Eva Mendes," Longoria quipped, as Ferrera added, "I'm America Ferrera, not Gina Rodriguez."

"And neither one of us are Rosario Dawson," Longoria joked, prompting her co-presenter to state, "Well said, Salma (Hayek)", as Longoria ended the brief exchange with, "Thank you, Charo (Fernandez)."

"I know Tom, he's a lovely person," the actress tells Us Weekly. "He did a very, very good job on this house because it was stunning and beautiful, and the minute we walked in I was like, 'This is a home'."
