Petite Eva Longoria Pulls Off a Height-Illusion Trick With a High Slit Gown + Nude Stilettos From Her Own Brand

Clocking in at just 5-foot-2, Eva Longoria pulled off an easy styling trick that makes her look catwalk-ready.

The “Desperate Housewives” alumna paired a blush pink flowing one-shouldered gown finished with a steep high-leg slit; the cut out reveals her legs and draws attention to her strappy heels. The pose — a leaning slant — elongates the body greater than a vertical stance.

Additionally, by choosing neutral-colored heels over a pop of color, the actress created a body-lengthening illusion as if her legs blended right into the towering height of her stilettos. The nude cross-front sandals come from Longoria’s eponymous footwear line that released in March in collaboration with European online retail sites Eobuwie and Modivo.
