Fiesty and fearless are two words that immediately come to mind when we think of Eva Longoria. The Texas-born beauty, who sharpened those character traits on daytime soap operas like "The Young And The Restless" and the dramedy "Desperate Housewives," has always had the red carpet style to match.
From the midriff-baring tops that defined her early years to the minidresses that marked her rise in Hollywood, Longoria's wardrobe is a true reflection of her career. And how could we forget those stunning floor-length gowns she wore as Mrs. Tony Parker?
With all of her cleavage and thigh-baring outfits, you'd think that the TV and film star had no problems tapping into her inner sexy. But she admits that it took decades. "I just came into my own sexuality at thirty. I don't think it's something you can deeply experience at 18 or any time before that," said Longoria.
Well, she sure does wear it well!
