Eva Longoria In Balmain – L’Oreal’s 20th Birthday Gala

Eva Longoria attended L’Oreal’s 20th birthday gala on Wednesday (May 24) during Cannes Film Festival.

Do you know what’s the worst thing about Eva in this Balmain dress?

That I’ll never be able to unsee it.

Emily Ratajkowski has a contender for WDOTY.

Eva was joined at the event by a host of models who were all decked out in Balmain including Neelam Gill, Maria Borges, Alexina Graham, Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou, Lara Stone, Bianca Balti, Doutzen Kroes, Irina Shayk, and Cindy Bruna.

I can’t say I’m a fan of any of these looks excluding Cindy.

    to be honest I don’t think the dress is that bad. it’s not good either. It looks like a project Runway task. Eva has been on a bad roll.

    She should never ever have agreed to be photographed in the middle of these tall models – it just makes that unfortunate dress choice look ten times worse. Sack the stylist love.

    Tragic.

    Oi. I feel kinda bad for her here.
    The dress is sad and so are the way those earrings sit. make her look really strange.

    I remember loving some of her Cannes looks a few seasons ago but recently I’ve found the majority of her looks to be really unflattering. It’s really sad – hope she can recapture the magic eventually!

    I feel inexplicably sad for you FC, it’s like watching one of your idols fall. I’ve never rated her style, but this is painful!

    • Catherine Kallon May 25, 2017 at 19:57 #

      very painful

  7. EmmaWoodhouse May 25, 2017 at 18:53 #

    It’s like the dreadful, tacky funeral version of the Maria Lucia Hohan dresses.

    • charlotte May 26, 2017 at 01:50 #

      OMG,Emma, you are back!!!
      It’s been quite a while

      • EmmaWoodhouse May 27, 2017 at 02:02 #

        Aww thank you for noticing! It’s lovely being amidst the old community! I have been silent for a while because life has been overwhelming but I check religiously every day and enjoy reading everyone’s thoughts as always. 🙂

    WDOTY contender.

    This is atrocious. Bless her heart, she’s a beautiful woman but she has forgotten how to dress to show off her beauty. SO unflattering.

    I do disagree about some of the other looks, though. Doutzen looks incredibly hot in that Balmain dress. Hair and makeup and sex appeal serving me some early-90s Kim Basinger smoulder. Love it!

    When I see an outfit that looks this bad, I have to believe that it must look better in real life and is just not photgraphing well. Otherwise, I have to believe that the wearer does not have access to a mirror or anyone who will tell her the truth and that is a sad place to be.

  11. TeaAtTwo May 25, 2017 at 14:40 #

    Tragic, I don’t know why l’oreal still have her as spoke person. Balmain is tacky season after season

  12. meme May 25, 2017 at 14:19 #

    This is beyond bad. And she looks ridiculous standing in front of all those Amazonian models all of whom look 1000 times better than her. Why is she even there?

  13. Lee Ann May 25, 2017 at 14:06 #

    The trouble is she never dressed for her height – I think she thinks she is 178 cams- but now she does not dress for her frame. She as put on a few pounds but doesn’t dress for them.

    • kelly May 25, 2017 at 17:39 #

      google says she is 1.57 m which makes a lot more sense to me than 1.78. some of those models are 1.78 and she is a head shorter than them.

      • Mahima May 25, 2017 at 23:07 #

        i think you read the comment wrong. OP said Eva thinks she’s that tall

  14. Giada May 25, 2017 at 14:03 #

    She has an apple shaped body with a less defined waist. The last thing you want to do is to emphasize that with straight panels on the torso which only make the upper body appear more straight.

    The cut, the tackiness, the fin-like earrings, the makeup that’s too light for her complexion and the bloody awful zipper… I just can’t.

    Pierre Balmain is rolling in his grave.

    Come on girl, you can do better.

  15. Saudin May 25, 2017 at 12:42 #

    This is soo bad it’s good…

  16. M May 25, 2017 at 12:08 #

    Eva does have a tendency to wear height inappropriate gowns but here the dress is horrid and you can see the ‘invisible’ zip, her makeup is a shade or two too light and the earrings….

  17. Alex May 25, 2017 at 12:01 #

    Catherine, year after year, she wears unflattering looks at Cannes. Why?!?!?

    • Catherine Kallon May 25, 2017 at 13:49 #

      I wish I knew. I used to really look forward to her Cannes looks

  18. Schoolbea May 25, 2017 at 11:16 #

    Oh my goodness. This is tragic. That dress, those earrings and those false lashes should never have seen the light of day.

  19. dedel May 25, 2017 at 10:58 #

    WTH ???

  20. Leandra May 25, 2017 at 10:52 #

    Hahaha…. Wait until you see her Philipp Plein Sadomaso Flamenco Dancer dress. She lost her mind.

    • Chris May 25, 2017 at 12:45 #

      oh boy, I just saw that one! It’s at least as bad as this one.

      • Leandra May 25, 2017 at 13:10 #

        I know she is getting handsomely paid but stil….

      • LeeAnn May 25, 2017 at 17:22 #

        Nah, think it’s worse which says a lot !

  21. Christine May 25, 2017 at 10:45 #

    So cheap that it hurts.

  22. Lancel May 25, 2017 at 09:44 #

    Why???? Eva you can do better than that!

  23. yumey May 25, 2017 at 09:05 #

    What is happening to her? Why? Why? Why? ?

  24. Marie May 25, 2017 at 08:25 #

    Like, you don’t need a stylist to know this is bad? It’s common sense? If I stood before the mirror on my way out and looked like this I’d be like – guys, I’m not going outside. There must be an alternative even if it is someone driving down to Primark and getting me the first dress you see.
    Where is the common sense in this? Where? Humanity must be in a bad place if someone like Eva shows up on the rc like this…

  25. Nat39 May 25, 2017 at 07:46 #

    Her stylist lost it, poor Eva.

  26. ARJUN May 25, 2017 at 07:44 #

    JUST WANT TO TAKE HER BY SHOULDERS OR ARMS AND SHACKLE AND SCREAM?WHY EVA WHY I NEED A ANSWER WHY WHY

  27. Ramsay May 25, 2017 at 07:40 #

    She really has not been doing well red carpet wise
    This is again quite bad – she used to be good on the red carpet

  28. Alina May 25, 2017 at 07:34 #

    WTF is happening here?!

    • Alina May 25, 2017 at 14:01 #

      OMG, this entire group… Balmain has become a mess. A tacky one.

  29. jessmara May 25, 2017 at 07:16 #

    OMG You’re so right, I just can’t unsee this. The wrong coloured nude lining, the invisible zip that is not even close to being invisible and the clashing gold and white gold accessories are just horrendous, I cant believe that someone with access to such wonderful dresses and stylists would walk outside the door wearing this.

  30. Ana May 25, 2017 at 07:09 #

    Oh dear! Honestly took me a while to even get to the dress because it looks like there’s water pouring out of her ears.

    • charlotte May 25, 2017 at 07:24 #

      hahaha,I totally missed that at first glance,now you mentioned it. I Can’t unseen it.
      I’m getting a Diva Plavalaguna(the Alien soprano in fifth element) vibe from her earings.

    • Angela Melanie Rego May 25, 2017 at 07:32 #

      I couldn’t find the words to describe what her ears look like but this is it ?

  31. charlotte May 25, 2017 at 07:05 #

    her close-up photo cracked me up,she looked so shocked.
    No more comments on the dress and this brand,it gose straight to my WDOTY list.

  32. Amanda May 25, 2017 at 06:48 #

    Seriously this is so bad. OMG -why???
