A few days ago it was announced that Eva Longoria and her husband José Bastón would be moving to Spain temporarily. Now the “Desperate Housewives” star shone in Cannes. On Saturday, the 49-year-old appeared at the premiere of “Emilia Perez” in a breathtaking mint green dress. The shimmering dress by Elie Saab Couture caused a stir with daring necklines. Longoria wore silver platform stilettos.

She has been a regular on the Cannes red carpet for many years. She spoke to “Vogue France” two years ago about her fashion secrets and the magic of the festival. The extravagant clothing gives her self-confidence, the appearance and the person then match. “I think with my body when my clothes fit well. Then I feel very comfortable in my skin. I feel like I could conquer the world.”

The actress revealed that everything had already happened to her in Cannes. “I fell on the red carpet, I accidentally wore a dress backwards on the red carpet, my clothes didn’t show up and my luggage got lost in Cannes, it rained in Cannes, everything.” She even lost her jewelry on the red carpet. “Luckily someone found him.”

The actress remembers one anecdote in particular: “We used to do all the press work on the roof, and once during the lunch break it was so windy that the salad blew off my plate. Just completely wrong. I ate and it was gone and I thought, ‘What’s going on now?'”

At that time, she called for more initiatives and programs to support female filmmakers. Longoria is a Hollywood heavyweight because she’s not just a star who performs. She directed and produced countless series and films. The best known are the series “Grand Hotel” and “Devious Maids – Dirty Secrets”. In the globally successful series about murder and maids, she delivered “the whole package” – idea, direction, production and leading role. Only a few actors can achieve this in an A production.

Her mother never emphasized her beauty. “She always said: ‘You are so smart, you are so strong, you are so independent.'” If it had been up to her mother, Eva Longoria would have become a lawyer. And that is also what “Emilia Perez” is about – here Zoe Saldana plays a lawyer in Mexico who is supposed to help a cartel boss disappear forever – at whose premiere the 49-year-old appeared on the red carpet in Cannes. Longoria’s brilliant appearance draws attention to this film – an act of feminine solidarity.
