Eva Longoria pink lace dress

It came from the Frederick’s of Hollywood’s formal wear section, and it showed Eva Longoria no mercy. It looks just like this pink lace doily I would use as an ornamental rug in my Barbie Doll Dream House whenever I wanted to designate that room “the ballroom.” Because pink and lace are fancy, you see. My seven-year-old self would think this was the prettiest dress she’d ever seen.

WHY THIS DOESN’T WORK:

1. The color. Hot pink is just not a good color for lace. I’m sure under the right circumstances and with perfect tailoring and just as an accent, you could make hot pink lace work, but 99.99% of the time, it’s an outfit death sentence. Those aren’t odds aren’t in your favor.

2. Sheer overkill (closeup of the dress here). With the sheer/cutout trend, the trick is finding just the right balance between what you expose and what you don’t. Too much flesh just looks cheap.

3. Ruffles. You can do ruffles and lace, but less is generally more. Lace has enough texture on its own — it doesn’t need the added volume of ruffles. It’s too much frippery.

The problem with sideswept hair is that you have to tilt your head forward (exhibit A) and slightly down (exhibit B) in order to turn your head without disrupting the sidesweptedness (real word) of the hair. That’s not the most flattering stance. It’s the same head tilt walkers take right before they stick out their arms and assume zombie form.

Good news — the Great Foundation Drought of 2012 is over! Turns out was just Eva Longoria.

FOUR WAYS TO DO FOUNDATION BETTER:

  1. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation enhances without masking and improves skin brightness, radiance, and texture. ($44)
  2. Stila Illuminating Foundation has a silky semi-matte finish that evens out flaws while letting your skin’s natural luminescence shine through. ($38)
  3. Guerlain Parure De Lumière Light-Diffusing Foundation is enriched with a marine spring water and multireflective Prisma Light Pigments that diffuse light at 360° for instant radiance. ($59)
  4. Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation contains 60% water and 10% mineral pigments encapsulated in a highly filtered botanical oil of 30%, a golden ratio that keeps the skin positively dewy. ($62)

I think this might be the best Eva Longoria’s ever looked. The color, the fit, the of-the-moment sheer panels — her dress is fantastic. AND it would look great at a St. Patty’s Day parade. It’s just too bad she’s wearing it at a cat food launch. That’s only slightly less lame than wearing it at a Boggle tournament or a neck brace convention.

Eva Longoria wore a hideous Cushnie et Ochat cutout dress and Fran Fine’s signature face at the Grand Opening of SHe by Morton’s in Las Vegas Sunday night. I think the look on the lady’s face behind her says it all. Sharp points and side boob only work if you’re a Mortal Kombat villainess.
