Eva Longoria is never without her high heels and fake eyelashes.

Actress Eva Longoria was once complimented on smelling like baked chicken on the red carpet.

The former Desperate Housewives star never misses a trick when it comes to her appearance at showbiz events and always dazzles with her choice of outfit and beauty look. Wearing a fragrance is another part of her red carpet regime, but that isn't always the smell that gets attention.

"Most of my first scent memories involve food and cooking," she told Allure. "Garlic, onion - you put olive oil and garlic in a pan and it starts to fill the entire house with a beautiful aroma.

"No, I wouldn't want a perfume made out of that. But I cook a lot. I remember being on the red carpet one time... I get ready for the red carpet while I'm cooking a meal. So I was baking a chicken, I was doing my hair and makeup, and I'd get up and check the chicken, and I was going back and forth. And then I was on the red carpet at an event and somebody goes, 'You smell so good!' and I was like, 'It's chicken! I roasted a chicken!'"

Eva was talking amid the 25th anniversary celebrations of Elizabeth Taylor's White Diamonds perfume, a product which still remains popular five years after the Hollywood icon's death. Eva herself is ever inspired by the late actress and how she became the first celebrity to create a perfume, and launch it with such success.

While Elizabeth was known for always wearing her fragrance and diamonds, Eva's must-haves are a little different: "Heels. I always have my heels, and I always have my lashes."

The brunette star hosted an event to toast Elizabeth's famous perfume on Wednesday night (06Apr16), which also served as an announcement of a new addition to the line; Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds Night.
