Eva Longoria was the host of the 2012 ALMA Awards which were held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California, on Sunday evening.

The actress’ first look of the night was a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2012 gown.

Her jet-black gown with a chiffon beaded neckline, cap sleeves and a central slit is stunning, but I don’t understand why she had to do a Blake Lively all the way down the red carpet.

You may remember the time when Blake Lively wore a Lanvin gown, held to one side to ensure her shapely pins were on display as she walked down the red carpet.

Tom Ford sandals, a chic updo, coral lips and diamond stud earrings completed her look.
