Eva Longoria In Alberta Ferretti – Noble Gift Gala

Eva Longoria spread some Christmas cheer across the pond as she sparkled like a very chic snowflake at the Noble Gift Gala, held at the Dorchester Hotel in London on Saturday night.

The charitable actress channels the grace and beauty of the season itself in a breathtaking gown from Alberta Ferretti’s 2012 Specials Collection.

Given the frock’s decadent dose of intricate detailing, Eva makes a smart choice by opting for fresh, timeless makeup and the bare minimum of accessories.

The champagne hue perfectly complements Eva’s natural colouring and plays to red carpet trends without appearing tired.

While some stars may find the holidays an opportunity for extreme opulence, we love that Eva kept her look luxe, yet understated.

Perhaps there may have been room to add a pop of colour with a bright bangle or clutch, but overall this is a balanced and elegant holiday party choice.

    I like this but it’s weird it looks like she has no waist. Still beautiful, though.

      Its unflattering at the waist.
      But she looks good.

      She doesn’t have a waist which she does a good job of hiding most of the time but once in a while she picks the wrong dress for her figure.

      i think the dress shouldn’t be blamed for that, i think Eva just gained a bit of weight…

      But yes, does not look good on the waist

    She never had one. Since the color of this gown is so unforgiving, it´s the reason why you guys get to see it more clearly. She always needed some dfinition around the waist to get that curvy look. Nice color though.

      +1. From the neck up, she looks good but the dress does not fit her

    I like the hair and makeup but the dress isn’t that flattering on her shape.

    Just as usual I dislike it head to toe. The dress is awfully unflattering and the makeup is too heavy and the hairstyle is a mess.

    This look is dated and a bit tacky when we know Alberta Ferretti is not either of those things.

    I don’t like this. I agree with Charlotte that it looks like she has no waist. I also think that this gown looks a bit dated.

    I don’t like the color, the plunging neckline, or how unflattering it is on her. The hair is a bit sloppy. It’s not working for me though I like the details on the skirt.

    The nude and silver colour combination wasn’t the best choice here.

    I really like it from the rib cage up–like the neckline and detail on the bodice, her hair and makeup and the lack of distracting accessories. Agree it doesn’t quite work for her around the waist.
