Eva Longoria’s star power crosses not only television & film but into modeling, becoming a spokeswoman, an activist and more.
The Texas bombshell with the quick wit and easygoing personality is capable of any type of transition. Whether it be the two years she played Isabella Braña on The Young & The Restless or the show-stealing turn as Gabrielle Solis on Desperate Housewives, Longoria is an already made woman, with even more goals and passions set on her plate.
The Golden Globe & Screen Actors Guild nominated actress made a slight pivot away from wearing highly sought after fashion wears on television and film to launch her own line. In collaboration with The Limited, Longoria describes her line as “Empowering women to feel their very best.” That empowerment led to a large meet and greet session at The Galleria where fans, media members and the like were able to catch a glimpse of some of the pieces from Longoria’s collection.
The diehard San Antonio Spurs fan made it a mission that her line is meant for both work and play. Calling it the “Work to Wine” collection, Longoria not only posed for photos and gave fans close access to her thoughts on design, she even took more than a few questions from us in regards to her favorite wears, deciding when it was right to jump into fashion design and more.
“I’ve done the bedding line,” Longoria said about her early entry into creating something for herself.” The opportunity came up and I knew I didn’t want to just put my name on a label, I wanted to be involved in the creative process.”
As far as something she’s kept a secret from most fans, Longoria can admit one thing: she’s a seamstress on the low. “I’ve sewed my whole life,” she said with a laugh. “Yes I sew dresses, jeans, shirts, blouses. The bow, the buttons, when it comes to the designs I’m involved with everything.”
Longoria is a Texas woman who loves a decent pair of pants and plenty of comfort. “I’m a big denim girl,” she acknowledges. “I live in jeans so I know how they can feel. My jeans are called “Power Sculpt” because they kind of suck you in, without being painful at the end of the day.”
