Everyone may have been talking about the number of outfits that Eva Longoria wore while hosting the NCLR ALMA awards — thirteen on stage, sixteen total for the night! — but Eva’s interest was in who made each of her fabulous gowns. The soon-to-be-married star wore only Latino designers, right down to the jewelry and the shoes. Eva tells PEOPLE that “they really show the color and flavor of our community, and I always wear them regularly anyway, so it was kind of a perfect match. It’s great because fashion is another extension of where Latinos have contributed immensely.” And while her long-time stylist Robert Verdi helped select the first round of dresses to try on, Eva had a hard time narrowing down from thirty options to twelve. “It pained me!” she says of having to turn down couture gowns. “They’re all my favorite children!”

Tune into the ALMA Awards tonight on ABC. And pick up PEOPLE on newsstands Friday for even more on Eva Longoria’s hosting duties at the ALMA Awards.

What makes her pretty is her personality (more than actual looks). She’s pretty but her nice personality puts her over more attractive actresses out there. Cool that she only wore Latino designers!

I agree, erica… I think it is her awesome personality that makes her over the top gorgeous (but it does help that her face is gorgeous too!)

Tammie on

she’s gorgeous no matter what she wears,

That dress looks like bloodied gauze…and this woman is simply not pretty. What does everyone see in her? As far as her personality, how can one tell that? Isn’t she a television star who makes believe for a living? Certainly we don’t know her personality by the public persona she give us…especially not from the charatcter she pretents to be on TV. Can we?

I used to adore Eva, I watched desperate housewives just because she was on it. My opinion has become less and less of her. I think her over night success went straight to her head. Why would you go on record to make sure the world knows that you are still having sex with your man.
Nasty!!! What happens in the bedroom, stays there.
