Eva Longoria is not an easy woman to get a hold of. The 40-year-old red carpet darling regularly splits her time as an actress, Hot & Bothered executive producer and director, and interior-design stalwart, however, there’s one thing she always clears her calendar for: helping others.
Thursday night in Los Angeles, the former Desperate Housewives star welcomed a group of stars into her very own Beso restaurant for an intimate dinner hosted by The Eva Longoria Foundation, which works to provide education and mentoring to Latina women in the United States. For the philanthropic occasion, Longoria stunned in a white sleeveless dress with matching pointed toe pumps.
Her guests also arrived in style. Mario Lopez (above, left) took a casual approach to dinner attire with grey trousers, a rolled-up Henley, and matching sneakers, while his wife Courtney Mazza (above, right) toted a chain strapped Chanel handbag and a black dress with lace detailing. Hot & Bothered star Jose Moreno Brooks (below, left) experimented with color and pieced together a handsome three-piece suit with sneakers. For actress Roselyn Sanchez, orange was the new black.
"Every year, it is inspiring to see how many people believe in my foundation’s work to empower Latinas, from global business leaders, to the entertainment community, to up-and-coming young professionals,” Longoria told InStyle. “I had a great time celebrating my foundation and the power of Latinas with my friends and supporters for the fourth year, and I look forward to continuing our work focused on education and entrepreneurship.”
