Runway To The Stage – Eva Longoria At The 2009 ALMA Awards

The ALMA Awards aired last night, and here are the stunning gowns Eva Longoria wore.

Last year she changed 8 times during the night.  This time only 7 changes.

You’ll recognise the first gown because Emily Deschanel wore the strapless version of this stunning tulle Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 gown at the 2009 Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony.

The main difference is that Eva’s gown has been modified to become a one-shouldered gown with a contrast eggplant sash.

I adore this gown from the colour to the tiered skirt, and I’ve been in love with it from the very second I saw it in Cadile’s showroom.

Her second gown was also by Gustavo Cadile. This time she picked a luscious green gown from his Resort 2010 collection.

This gown also has a one-shoulder detail with a fan over her shoulder for added dramatic effect to the volume of the piece.

I don’t ever remember Eva wearing green before, but the colour is vibrant and really pops against her skin.

Eva’s next look was an Angel Sanchez Bridal Spring 2009 gown.

Thankfully this one-shoulder gown doesn’t have a sickly sweet bridal feel to it, as its quite simple with just bow detail on the bodice.

She gives this look an old Hollywood feel with her retro 50s hairstyle.

I’m really disappointed I couldn’t find a full-length version of Eva’s Carlos Miele Fall 2009 gown, as I think it would have looked spectacular on her with the dual prints and the chiffon flowing train.

Those hooped earrings are huge.

I would go as far as to say this Caroline Herrera Fall 2009 gown was my least favourite of the Fall 2009 season, and I dislike it even more on Eva.

It does nothing for her.

The other gowns brings colour, texture and vitality – this is just grey, dull, and unflattering for Eva.

Oscar de la Renta gowns were the 2 final looks for Eva on the night.

I love the blush gown with the sequin overlay. This kind of colour I really allows Eva to glow.

The black and white floral gown feels like it is swamping Eva with the 2 layers. This would be my second least favourite after the Herrera horror.

2009 Creative Arts Emmy Awards

Selena Gomez looked elegant on the red carpet wearing a stone Marchesa Resort 2010 strapless gown, with an embellished bodice.

I love the gown, but I would have loved to see her wear something more colourful.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler looks radiant wearing a coral J. Mendel Resort 2009 gown.

I love the textured ruffles on the bodice of the dress, and her gold clutch.

Lisa Edelstein embroidered halter neckline is the most stunning feature of her teal Carlos Miele Fall 2009 gown.

It’s been a while since we last saw her on the red carpet, but she always look fantastic.

Mary Lynn Rajskub was one of my favourites at this event.

I love the colour of her strapless gown, the thigh-high split and her silver strappy sandals.

Ashley Tisdale was more MTV Awards than Creative Emmy Awards, but this aqua blue strapless dress works for her.

She’s young and having fun with her look.

A studded black belt and YSL Trib Two’s complete the look.

Emily Osment opted for a satin midnight blue cowl neck BCBG Max Azria gown, embellished on the straps to add some sparkle to her look.

Runway To "Rally For Kids With Cancer" – Eva Longoria In Carlos Miele


Tony Parker and Eva Longoria Parker both supported The Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup this weekend.

Eva got dressed up for the occasion, whereas Tony was more comfortable in jeans and a black top.

Eva wore a gorgeous black strapless Carlos Miele Fall 2009 dress. The black linen dress had a white silk charmouse detail on the folds of the bust, and hemline.

The interesting feature of this dress, is the asymmetrical hemline, which may have been modified off the runway, as Eva’s dress appears to have a fish-tail.

Despite those Trib Two’s making their 1,000,000th appearance on the red carpet, I do like Eva’s look, but I do wish her hair had been pulled back completely off her face.

Carlos Miele Fall 2009



Carlos Miele’s Spring 2009 collection saw me seated behind Suzy Menkes of the International Herald Tribune, and directly opposite French Vogue editor, Carine Roitfeld.

With such high profile fashion figures in the room, I anticipated a great show, and I wasn’t let down.

The show started with Max Decastro, playing guitar on the runway. At many points during the show, I was worried he might collide with the models, but this didn’t happen.

With the tunes playing in the background, the show was very energetic and upbeat.

There was lots of colour and sleek silhouettes. Reds, taupes, blacks and lime greens were presented. Prints also featured heavily, which added another dimension to the collection.

Boleros were featured with gowns, in knit, fur, and pleated chiffon.

I loved the gowns, but I was equally blown away with the cocktail dresses. My favourite was a ruched taupe mini dress with on long sleeve, and on that shoulder was a gorgeous sparkly cluster of embellishments.

The collection had amazing workmanship, and I can see many of the gowns presented ending up on the red carpet. I particularly loved the black gown, with the embellished detail on the hip.


Here are some of my better pictures.


Katharine McPhee seemed to be very interested in the collection. She arrived at the show wearing a nude high-collared corduroy dress, under a black blazer and a black belt to nip in her waist.

I like the shoes and the blazer. The Spring 2009 dress? not so much on her. It looked better on the runway.
