Eva Longoria Admits: 'I Wear Braces'

It’s true: Desperate Housewives’ gorgeous star Eva Longoria has a fashion flaw. Well, temporarily. “I wear braces,” she confesses in the July issue of InStyle. Pulling out a photo from her upcoming film Cristiada, she says, “Look how crooked my bottom teeth were, and I never even knew.” Despite her imperfect teeth, Longoria always manages to turn heads when out with famous friends like Jessica Alba and Victoria Beckham. But she wasn’t always called a stunner; in fact, she was once considered the homely one in her family because her three older sisters were blonde. “I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup when I was young,” she adds. “I would melt crayons and try to put them on my lips, and I would use watercolor for eye shadow.” Now a pro at glamming up — “I can even put them on in the car,” she boasts of her false-lash application skills — she enjoys using bronzing powder and a few key basics. “Mascara is very important. If I were on a desert island, I would have to have mascara and lip balm,” she shares. Also important to the petite star? “High heels,” she states. “I love designer shoes. There’s this pair in my closet by Versace, and they must be 8 inches — crazy tall!” She even keeps some for decoration. “They’re not to wear; they’re just to look really pretty in the closet,” she says. “They are art!” For more with Longoria, pick up the latest issue of InStyle, on newsstands Friday.

Yes, I am glad she has braces, they definitely do wonders for the people that can use the cosmetic adjustments. One less mouse head to look at in Hollywood, maybe a few Jennifers should look up her orthodonist, got any carrots wascally wabbit?

I love EVA…..she is soooo beautiful, whether she is all glammed up or just out for lunch, in a pony and shade’s, with very little make-up. She is and alway’s will be one of my very favorite actress’s. Yes, Tony was a fool, an idiot for messing up the best thing to ever happen in his life. Oh, well, his loss and someone else’s gain.
