Eva Longoria Dresses Up For Serious New Projects

If you’re Desperate to look like US TV star Eva Longoria then fear not as we’ve been keeping tabs on how her sexy style is evolving into something more sophisticated.

The Desperate Housewives actress flew into the UK at the weekend to launch her new fragrance Eva for Women. The scent has been described as a classy, elegant night-time fragrance blending notes of bergamot tea, jasmine, leather musk and amber.

Forget power dressing – this is power smelling!

We know this reflects the Wisteria Lane sex siren’s new change in career path as Very can reveal she’s just filmed her first ever Spanish speaking feature length movie.

She’s a ninth-generation Mexican American, so she did not grow up speaking fluent Spanish and had to take classes for the film Days of Grace.

We’ll all be able to see how she did when the movie based around the Mexico football team is released at Christmas time. We’ll soon find out if she has brains as well as beauty!

But you can’t have power smelling and power working without power dressing and it doesn’t get much stronger than the tailored dress she wore for a night out with Victoria Beckham the day before the perfume signing at London’s Westfield shopping mall. If dresses were weights, this one would be heavy!

One of Very’s key looks for autumn is soft-tailoring, such as the ladylike and elegant Holly Willoughby Peplum pencil dress

Be a lady in red in a South Ponteroma dress

Or be angelic in white like Eva with a Ted Baker Neuva zip through dress

What’s good about a well-tailored dress is that it’s made with a subtle amount of lycra so you can go out to dinner and not have to worry about undoing any buttons afterwards!

And with so much work on right now, Eva does need to eat to keep her energy levels up and her brain in gear.
