Following her Zuhair Murad red carpet look at the 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards, Eva Longoria commenced her co-hosting gig with Mario Lopez, where she proved she was the ultimate quick-change artist—and a fashionable one at that. The glam chameleon showed off not one, not two, but a lucky seven looks, some of which even managed to venture outside her standard style box.
Elie Saab: Shining brightly in an Elie Saab Fall 2013 coral, cap-sleeve gown?, Eva dazzled in this beaded, embellished design that was radiating an Art Deco vibe. The only accessories needed for this dress, which sparkled from a mile away, were diamond stud earrings and a casually cool, wavy ponytail.
Randi Rahm: She also swept onto the stage in a flowing halter dress by Randi Rahm in the most engaging shade of emerald, which she attempted to match to her sandals. The rich, jewel-tone hue really captured my attention here.
Etro: Strutting out a look that was more her traditional style, Eva stunned in black, off-the-shoulder column dress from Etro’s Fall 2013 collection. The sharp, architectural structure of the plunging, V-neck bodice—and the fact that she didn’t clutter the design with unnecessary jewels—really made this look one of my favourites.
Paula Ka: She also lit up the proceedings in a hot-magenta column dress from Paule Ka’s Spring 2013 Black Carpet Collection, matched with a bubble-gum pink lip. The fluid silhouette of the sleeveless, one-shoulder design was a refreshing change for Eva, even if her nude peep-toe pumps seemed a mere afterthought.
Max Mara: Taking on a Max Mara Spring 2014 look, Eva wore a pink strapless gown that may have been lacking shape, but it did receive an extra dose of romance with her long brunette waves.
Monique Lhuillier: Not content to leave the stage without a bit of bold sparkle, Eva donned a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2012 black, scoop-neck gown, awash in glittering, head-to-toe sequins. She topped off the look with side-swept waves and a nude lip.
Romona Keveza: Taking a more darkly, dramatic turn, the co-host became a vampy mermaid with her Romona Keveza Fall 2013 black, burnt-out velvet gown, accessorized with a long fishtail side braid. The dress’s long sleeves and long train were juxtaposed with a skin-baring, backless detail.
Which of these seven looks had the most sizzle, in your opinion?
