Eva Longoria Parker Cracks The Whip
I wouldn’t say I dislike Eva Longoria Parker; there’s just something about her that doesn’t sit right with me. I’m sure she’s a very nice person (insert additional false flattery here)—but I find her frequent editorials, in which she is predictably styled with a perky, almost too-perfect aesthetic, irksome. It’s similar to how I feel about her show Desperate Housewives, which comes across equally…off-putting, to euphemize a bit. Her recent cover shoot for the fall issue of Citizen K, however, in which she is nearly unrecognizable in a cropped black bob, big black cat-eyes, a dark lip, and black nail polish, completely redeems her in my book. There’s something about Longoria Parker the dominatrix-vamp that blows Longoria Parker the petite glamour queen out of the water and shows a certain depth that makes her instantly likable. But maybe that’s just me.
