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.

    You can take the girl out of Wisteria Lane but you can’t take the Wisteria out of the girl I find this look over done to the point that i would assume this was the Halloween episode and Gabby’s trip to the MAC counter for her POSH spice makeup did not go well. . . but i commend the effort.
