Finally it looks like we have Eva Longoria back.

She hasn’t really given me much cause to get excited about recently, as her looks were becoming increasingly sombre, but on this occasion she perks up wearing an ivory cocktail Gustavo Cadile Spring 2009 dress, paired with matching Christian Louboutin slingbacks.

The dress shows off her golden glow after enjoying her summer holidays with her husband in Europe.

The star attended a press conference yesterday announcing the ALMA Award Nominations in Hollywood.

Eva will host the 2009 ALMA Awards on September 18.

If previous years are anything to go by, she’ll showcase stunning gowns from top Latino designers.
