After extending her time in Europe following Cannes Film Festival, Eva Longoria was back stateside yesterday.

The actress attended the ‘For Greater Glory’ LA premiere held at the AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California, wearing a Marchesa Fall 2012 dress.

Whilst I do love this laser-cut funnel-neck flared dress with intricate shoulder detail, it was one of the few edgier dresses from Marchesa which I had pictured on someone like Rihanna, Elizabeth Banks, Leighton Meester or even Taylor Momsen who attended this presentation.

The drop-waist dress doesn’t excite on Eva. I wish she’d picked one of the prim ladylike cocktail dresses from this collection which are more suited to her style.

Her girlie ponytail and those darn Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps don’t work with this look either.

So between the styling and the wrong choice of dress, this is a no from me.
