Flamin’ Hot tells the rags-to-riches story of Mexican American immigrant and former Frito-Lay Janitor Richard Montañez, who claims to be the brains behind the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
The movie received mixed reviews from critics, with Hollywood Reporter’s Frank Scheck praising Eva Longoria’s “superb” direction.
Martin Tsai of AV Club added: “Eva Longoria makes an assured big-screen directorial debut.” On the other hand, Chicago Sun-Times’ Richard Roeper said, “The film treatment definitely doesn’t satisfy.”
From sultry to cool boss lady vibes, below are Eva Longoria’s 5 most striking looks from her Flamin’ Hot press tour in NYC.
1. Eva Longoria in Roberto Cavalli
Channeling Marilyn Monroe, the dress featured an accordion pleat skirt that resembled the iconic white dress worn by the 1950s blonde bombshell in the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch.

It originally featured a front tie bow, but Eva tied it around her back instead to draw attention to her tiny waist.
The cleavage-baring plunging neckline nearly reached her belly button while the modest midi length and long bishop sleeves balanced out the daring cutout.
Stylist Maeve Reilly selected the fabulous dress, currently on sale for $3,129 (from $3,895) on Farfetch.

Eva left her neck bare and instead accessorized with long earrings that dangled just below her jawline, which was enough to elongate her neck.
In addition, she wore a few statement rings and rounded out the ensemble with Christian Louboutin’s beige satin open-toe sandals that showcased her red pedicure.
Keeping the look feminine, Eva stunned with a sleek blowout care of hairdresser Ken Pavés. Elan Bongiorno enhanced her Latina features with smokey eyeshadow, mascara, fluttery lashes, and nude lipstick.

2. Eva Longoria in Ena Pelly Leather LBD
She’s 48, but she continues to prove she still has it as she flaunted her amazing hourglass curves in a little black dress by Melbourne fashion label Ena Pelly outside the Watch What Happens Live studio the previous day.
Looking every inch the bombshell, the Casa Del Sol co-founder made the most of her assets as she put on a busty and leggy display in the party-ready buttery soft leather minidress that featured a flattering low scoop neck and a thigh-skimming hem.
The “Maria” dress is currently on sale for $133.33 (from $398) at Saks Fifth Avenue.

She paired the exquisite frock with the high-heeled “Eva” black pumps by Le Silla and added some glitz to the sultry ensemble with chunky gold hoop earrings and several gold rings.

Her glam team finished her flirty look with her signature smokey eye-makeup and nude lipstick. They also gave her a half-up half-down ponytail and allowed her tresses to fall in loose curls down her chest.

3. Eva Longoria in a Pink Suit
Earlier in the day, Eva channeled her inner girl boss as she dropped by The View in a pale pink suit set.

Elevating the business-chic ensemble, Tony Parker’s ex accessorized with layered jewels. She wore two gold necklaces around her neck, two shiny gold bangles, a selection of rings, and a pair of large pink hoop earrings to match.
Her long dark tresses were parted in the middle and styled in tousled waves flowing over her shoulders, while her gorgeous features were accentuated with pink blush, lipstick, and her signature eye makeup.

Eva Longoria kicked off her week by heading to the Good Morning America studios to promote her latest project, Flamin’ Hot.

Sporting the same layered accessories, the Dora and the Lost City of Gold actress completed her look with a sultry loose waves hairstyle and subtle neutral makeup.
5. Eva Longoria in Roberto Cavalli Dress
Taking her press tour looks to scorching new heights, Eva attended the Los Angeles special screening of Flamin’ Hot at Hollywood Post 43 in a black naked dress from Robert Cavalli’s Fall 2023 collection.
All eyes were on the Desperate Housewives star as she put on a smoldering display in the figure-hugging lacy number adorned with an array of bead embellishments all over.
The elegant silhouette had a modest high neck, long sleeves, a sexy open back, and a seductive form-fitting skirt that flared out into a floor-sweeping train at the hem.

Leaning on her go-to stylist Maeve Reilly, Eva accessorized with Chopard jewelry consisting of a huge pair of drop earrings and a statement flame ring, a clear nod to her directorial debut film.
Eva looked glamorous as ever with her dark tresses pulled up into a high ponytail by Ken Paves. Meanwhile, Elan Bongiorno drew attention to her eyes by applying smeared smokey eye makeup with fluttery eyelashes.
Her stunning beauty look was finished with matte nude lipstick and matching blush.
