Eva Longoria: VB stops me going OTT
Eva Longoria loves Victoria Beckham's minimalist style.
The fashion designer and the American actress have been close pals for years now and always support each other's work.
Eva relies on Victoria for style advice, as she doesn't trust herself to create a classy and demure look.
“I send her pictures and ask what I should wear. I love how Victoria is a minimalist, she wears minimal jewellery, everything is clean lines," Eva told vogue.com.au. "I really admire that because if it were up to me, I’d be a Christmas tree. I’m like, diamonds, necklaces, bracelets, sparkly! And she’s like, ‘No.’”
The reason Eva identifies with Victoria so much is because both women understand the pressure they're under to look good in the spotlight.
Eva also relies on her "amazing" stylist, who follows the trends and picks outfits accordingly. This comes in handy for red-carpet appearances and the brunette beauty follows an intense schedule in the lead-up to an event.
“I have a team, it’s not like you walk out and it’s effortless. There’s hair, make-up, publicists, assistants," she listed. "I always do a manicure the night before so I’m not imprisoned in my chair because I don’t want to nick my nail. I do a facial a week before. There’s a calendar.”
Although she enjoys attending star-studded bashes in the US, Eva admits Cannes Film Festival provides more opportunities to take risks when choosing what to wear.
This year she pulled out all the stops by dazzling in an array of outfits, such as a revealing Gabriela Cadena gown with sheer panels going all the way down the sides.
