Who Wore Gustavo Cadile Better? Emily Deschanel or Eva Longoria

Posted by Catherine Kallon

In February I tried on this Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 gown on in the designers showroom. It was so beautiful I didn’t want to take it off.

I was so happy when Emily Deschanel wore the stunning tulle gown to the “49th Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony” at the Grimaldi Forum in Monte-Carlo.

She looked breath-taking even though she opted for a black belt, rather than the runway bejeweled belt.

Eva Longoria wore the same dress when she hosted the 2009 ALMA Awards in Los Angeles last month.

Her dress was modified into a one-shouldered dress, as she swept her hair over her other shoulder.

As much as I love both versions, this gown worked better for me as it was intended as a strapless gown so Emily wins for me.

    I think the problem is that Eva lives for the drama dresses, the ones with majoeva-va-voom impact, which I love because it proves that she understands what the red carpet is about and what stars should do, but she doesn’t have the frame for it.

    She is almost always perfect – makeup, hair, the right amount of bling – but she is so tiny that the dresses she loves just engulfs her.

    Eva’s so tiny; the dress can swallow her. Emily wins for me.

    Emily looks like she has a bare foot poking out from under her dress – but she still looks great, and so do you, F.C. – oh for such a long lean body! Which is why Eva can’t pull this off, she is too short and tiny and drowning in this.

    Hands down FC has this one! I was so jealous when you first posted that picture! You looked incredible!

    Eee! Agreed. I remember thinking, “Oh wow, she is stunning.” 🙂

    • Stuti November 10, 2009 at 4:34 pm #

      I meant for you,FC.
      Silly of me to not mention. 😀

        I got it 😀

    I don’t understand why Eva covered up the neckline. That is one of the prettiest parts of the dress! And you did look great in it, FC :).

      thanks Ally.

      you are too sweet

      • Regina Abbah January 20, 2010 at 2:12 pm #

        Eva, you are a beautiful woman you need to look at for what fit you not just buying what is in vogue.

    Why are you so modest? I alreday made the poll picture, that’s how it should be!
    Guys, tell her something, she DOES look best in this dress!

    • Fashion Critic November 10, 2009 at 10:15 am #


      I’m getting all bashful over here.

    • Jasmine November 10, 2009 at 4:59 pm #

      Ha Ha – and Eva copied your hair!

      • Fashion Critic November 10, 2009 at 5:13 pm #

        Oh so she did…very cute 😉

    That dress is totally wearing Eva, she’s drowning in it!

    I like the colour of the belt Eva wore her version with but the dress does look that bit better strapless so my vote goes to Emily. Although maybe you FC wore it better when you tried it on?

    • Fashion Critic November 10, 2009 at 9:41 am #


      You remembered.. How cute.

  11. Danielle November 10, 2009 at 8:40 am #

    I’d say Emily Deschanel.

    Eva is a small woman and I feel like she’s drowning in this dress. Too much fabric for her.

    emily wins this for me, the strapless version is better plus eva looks like she is wearing a prom dress and not a designer dress.
