Eva Longoria In Alberta Ferretti – 2012 Cannes Film Festival Opening Night Dinner

Eva Longoria made her second Cannes Film Festival appearance of the day at the opening night dinner, which took place on Wednesday evening.

Following her breathtaking Marchesa gown at the opening ceremony, Eva wore an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2012 gown.

With a body-conscious nude slip, tulle overlay and lace piping, this is a much more gothic look to the tons of tulle gown we saw earlier in the day.

I’m glad to see Eva is keeping us on our toes, and not just sticking to one look.

A sleek updo, black pumps and white clutch complete the look.

What can I say? Cannes agrees with her.

    I don’t think I’ll ever see a black gown this pretty. Love it on Eva.

    she looks great, she sould wear victoria beckham-esque gowns more often. it’s a very sexy and chic look without showing legs/boobs/back.

    To me, this is the best she´s looked in a loooong while. Amazing dress.

    love it! myuch improved than the runway version. The ligther nude linning add to the effect of that perfect silhouette!

    This is so much better than her red carpet look. She looks good here.

    Oh I much prefer this look from her Marchesa look. I think is proof that you need to dress for your height. I love the dress and very much like the different feel/vibe of this look. Cannes does wonder for Eva and am glad she is venturing away from her usual style.

    I agree with the others, this is very different for Eva and I like it.
    I would love it if the nude slip was closer to her complexion and if the clutch wasn’t white, but gold.

      I so agree with you about the nude slip being somebody else’s nude. Nude underlayments are always too white and make the black look grey. Other than that, I love the gown and the way it looks on Eva.

    What happens to her when she’s in Cannes? She becomes such a refined woman, does she hire another stylist when she’s in Europe? 🙂

    I actually like this a lot better than the Marchesa- it’s more restrained, elegant, and fits her figure better. Kudos to Eva!

    We’re getting spoiled again with all these amazing looks!

    Eva, can you start giving us this style the rest of the year? Pretty please?
    I love this look. It’s gothic yet glam, striking the right balance of edginess and classic chic. My only caveat is the white clutch. It’s a bit of an eyesore.

    Rose gold sandals and pink crystal earring would’ve been amazing. I don’t like the pumps, but other than that she looks great. I like how the gown is better on her than the runway.

    Cannes clearly agrees with her. Another stunning look. I love it… I just wish she keeps this standard whenevr she hits the red carpet.

  15. Linda May 17, 2012 at 02:02 #

    She looks gorgeous. I prefer this to the Marchesa.

  16. Mol May 17, 2012 at 02:02 #

    I love this – Eva looks interesting to me here, usually I skip over her and her Marchesa from earlier made me cringe, just way too too much…..but this, it rates a very big yes!

  17. Vidhya May 17, 2012 at 00:55 #

    An unexpectedly amazing look from Eva. Way to go!

    • DivaDebbi May 17, 2012 at 05:18 #

      +1. This may be the sleekest and chicest I have ever seen Eva look. Well done!

  18. Jessica May 17, 2012 at 00:35 #

    She looks amazing. The dress is gorgeous. It looks much better on her than the runway!

    • Yeliz May 17, 2012 at 08:31 #

      I agree.

  19. CreoleLady May 17, 2012 at 00:27 #

    Prefer this to her earlier gown. This one gives her a waist and she looks taller. Plus this one is far less deja vu.

    • manja May 17, 2012 at 09:59 #

      my thoughts exactly,the previous one was total deja vu,but this is beautiful,except for the white clutch,doesn’t go with the gown at all,any otrher colore wdl’ve worked much better

    • Alina May 17, 2012 at 16:17 #


  20. Jones19 May 17, 2012 at 00:22 #

    She looks 10 feet tall in this gown. Love it on her, Cannes does seem to do wonders for her.

  21. JGH May 17, 2012 at 00:19 #

    FC, am I wrong in asserting that Longoria is striking the patented Victoria Beckham leg-thrust pose? It seems she’s been taking notes…

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 00:51 #

      ha…very right

  22. Ramsay May 17, 2012 at 00:06 #

    I have to say this dress looks sooooo much better on Eva than on the runway

  23. CTgirl May 17, 2012 at 00:03 #

    Great look. This is real glamour.

  24. Leska May 17, 2012 at 00:01 #

    One of the best pairs of recent times Eva and Cannes.

    • Christine May 17, 2012 at 03:43 #

      Couldn’t agree more. For some reason she knocks it out the park ONLY at cannes.
