In or Out: Eva Longoria in Alberta Ferretti
Eva’s one of those celebrities that come across as a total non-entity to us. In many ways, she’s the perfect television actress because she’s pretty in an approachable sort of way and isn’t cursed with a surplus of charisma. We say this not to be mean, but because every time we come across pictures of her, we almost always default to NOT featuring them on the site. We actually took several days to talk ourselves into featuring these pics.

We like this dress. It’s a great color and it’s got some interest provided by the seaming and multiple splits in the hem. But to be accurate, we only like this dress. We’re not quite in love with it. For one, it was designed with sheer side panels and that’ll never not seem a little tacky to us. For another, the version that Eva’s wearing isn’t nearly as impeccable-looking as the runway version. She’s super-tiny, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this was altered for her, but we’re not sure if that explains why practically every seam is puckering. And is it the way she’s standing or is that neckline totally uneven? Essentially, this looks like a decent dress – and one that suits her to T – was altered in a way that pretty much ruined it. It’s too shiny and too puckery, and the side panels, which appear to be lined now, look too thick.
But go ahead. Tell us we’re wrong. Remember to show your work.
IN! WRONG! I will now explain why!
OUT! Purple & puckery! Enough said!
