Eva Longoria hosted a Pre-Oscar flamenco party at her Hollywood restaurant, Beso, on Wednesday night.

Rather than wear an obvious flamenco dress, Eva wore an all black Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 look.

Wide-leg silk pants paired with a sheer lace blouse give the actress a very masculine meets feminine look.

A wide side-braid plays up the femininity of the sheer top, worn with smoky eyes and a glossy lip.

While wide-legged pants help elongate the leg, I find this look to be unflattering on the petite actress.

Kudos for switching things up on the red carpet, but better luck next time.

A side-swept plait, Ferragamo pumps and a black clutch completed her look.
