Latina Eva Longoria transcended beauty this week at the Latino Inaugural in Washington D.C in a chic and sophisticated floor-length gown by Vivienne Westwood. The petite actress, star of Desperate Housewives, illuminated the red carpet in the gentle blush hue, which lit up her olive complexion. The gentle ruching on the dress drew attention to her tiny waist and gave the impression of a curvier figure for the size zero starlet. She wore minimal accessories, keeping her look simple and romantic and finished with a classic nude shoe and diamond stud earrings. Elliot Claire is the epitome of elegance when it comes to special occasion maxi dresses. This fabulous floor-sweeping strapless dress that Team LBD have picked out is romantic and decadent, as well is being on-trend with its red floral appliqué detailing and figure flattering ruching. It could well be love!
