Eva Longoria always asks Victoria Beckham for her fashion advice.

The 40-year-old actress has revealed she ''admires'' her close friend's ''minimal'' style, and always sends the 41-year-old former Spice Girl pictures of her outfits before events, in order to help her choose the right one.

Eva said: ''I send her pictures and ask what I should wear. I love how Victoria is a minimalist, she wears minimal jewelry, everything is clean lines. I really admire that because if it were up to me, I'd be a Christmas tree. I'm like, diamonds, necklaces, bracelets, sparkly! And she's like... 'No!' ''

The former 'Desperate Housewives' star went on to admit she prefers sharing her problems with her celebrity friends, rather than ones who aren't in the industry, because they ''understand'' each other better, as they're going through the same ''pressures''.

Speaking to Australian Vogue magazine, Eva said: ''It is easy to talk to people who understand the pressures that you're under. As frivolous as some may seem and as serious as others are, there are things that you face in our industry.

''I felt that way with 'Desperate Housewives', the other women. Only we were going through what we were going through so we could only complain to each other. Nobody wants to hear a celebrity complain because there are way more pros than cons!''
