Good Taste

Like her di­verse roles, the ac­tress is just as com­fort­able in a pair of kicks as de­signer stilet­tos.

Eva Lon­go­ria talks act­ing high­lights, makeup musts and sell­ing fash­ion with HSN.

Ac­tress, en­tre­pre­neur and ac­tivist Eva Lon­go­ria is adding to her list of screen cred­its. This time, she’s pro­mot­ing an epony­mous ap­parel col­lec­tion on HSN. Lon­go­ria, who’s been sewing since she was 7, ex­plained, “I’m ob­sessed with the con­struc­tion of a gar­ment, from seams to fab­rics, all the way to mar­ket­ing. I’m in­volved in ev­ery as­pect. It’s very nat­u­ral and or­ganic.” Lon­go­ria also ap­pre­ci­ates the work of other de­sign­ers, among them Vic­to­ria Beck­ham, whose gowns she has worn on the red car­pet, paired with shoe styles by Brian At­wood, Gian­vito Rossi, Pe­dro Gar­cia, Chris­tian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blah­nik. “For ca­su­al­wear, I love Vince. And James Perse has some great ca­sual shoes,” she said. “I also love Vans. They’re like an el­e­vated sneaker that’s a lit­tle more fash­ion-for­ward. And I wear a lot of Adi­das and Nike. In just black shoes alone, I have 50 pairs.” Sum­ming up her style as clas­sic-com­fort, Lon­go­ria said, “I love dress­ing up and be­ing able to be many things. Women can be more than one thing at one time. We can wear dif­fer­ent hats and dif­fer­ent out­fits — that’s my style. I’m to­tally at the mercy of what I’m do­ing and where I’m go­ing.”
