Eva Longoria was hard to ignore in her vivid red dress as she graced the red carpet at the 2023 National Hispanic Media Coalition Impact Awards held at Vibiana in Los Angeles on Friday.

The Desperate Housewives star was a ravishing sight in a stunning red dress by Dundas, a high-end clothing brand founded by Norwegian designer Peter Dundas, renowned for his glitzy and glamorous creations.

Eva’s Fall 2023 slinky evening dress proved the designer’s opulent design. It featured a modest high neck, long sleeves, and silver studs on one shoulder.

Adding a provocative element to the look was the daring hip-high slit, held together by silver studs, allowing the actress to showcase her toned legs. In addition, the dress had an open back and a long tie from its high neck, trailing down her back.

With various designers incorporating the vibrant hue in their Fall/Winter 2023 designs, red has been named one of the official colors of the fall season. And it seems the brilliant shade is here to stay, as it was also featured on various Spring/Summer 2024 runways.

The Devious Maids producer worked with stylist Maeve Reilly for her evening look, which was low-key styled with just a pair of diamond stud earrings. Reilly’s clients include Megan Fox, Adriana Lima, Winnie Harlow, and Leni Klum.

A pair of nude platform sandals by Lebanese shoe designer Andrea Wazen rounded out her exquisite ensemble.

Currently on sale for $372 (from $620) at Saks Fifth Avenue, the “Antigone” features a PVC and leather upper, striking platforms, and towering 6-inch heels, giving Eva’s 5’2” height some boost.

Dimitris Giannetos styled the actress’ dark brown tresses in a sleek center-parted updo, while Elan Bongiorno gave her heavy smokey eyeshadow, nude blush, and matching lip color.

The Casa Del Sol owner was given the Icon Impact Award at the event for her media and philanthropic achievements for the Latinx community.

Early this month, the Latina director celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month with the opening of the Flamin’ Hot exhibit held at the Hollywood Museum.

The exhibit features several photos and props from the Flamin’ Hot set, including Eva’s director’s chair and a convertible car filled with packs of Flamin Hot Cheetos.

Eva opted for a casual outfit for the event, pairing a fitted black tee with black sweatpants and a matching jacket.

She finished her look with white sneakers, thin large hoop earrings, and wavy tresses flowing around her shoulders.

Flamin’ Hot is Longoria’s directorial debut film. It tells the rags-to-riches story of Richard Montañez, the man who invented the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos while working as a janitor for Frito-Lay.
