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.

@ E, love it! HA!!!!

Eva is gorgeous! If you’re going to complain about an article, here’s an idea… DONT CLICK ON THE LINK TO READ IT! Also – last time i checked, People was an entertainment website not every day news from across the world… Just saying….

Well Ellen, this is people.com. You know, the celebrity magazine. Perhaps you are looking for news in the wrong place. Sorry it’s confusing for you dear.

Of course she HAS to wear high heels, she is as short as a midget!!! The woman is just lucky. I have seen pictures of her without make up and she is very ordinary looking.

Tara on

She totally needs more make up in that pic … ewww.

Kat on

She is not one of my favorites but crooked teeth or not I think she has the most beautiful eyes in Hollywood.

Stella on

Her teeth were crooked and she didn’t know it. What? Doesn’t she look at herself in the mirror while she’s brushing her teeth? Well, either way, the woman is gorgeous and appears to be really nice.

So where is the pic of her with the new braces?? This reminds me of yesterday’s “Style News” that People Mag talking about Lily Allen’s wedding shoes but not actually putting up a pic of the shoes or a link to it.

I would never wear 8 inch heels or any real high heels, but I agree—I also look at beautiful leather shoes and bags as art. I always have said that, I got a kick out of her saying it, but she can actually afford to buy them and look at them. I would hope even if I had the money I wouldn’t do that. I saw Chloe K. walking in 6 in heels on the beach, acting like she never went to the beach before and never took the stipid shoes off.

Since when are braces a fashion-flaw?
She’s probably wearing Invisalign, which are clear plastic-like braces that snap on your teeth or the new braces that go in behind your teeth instead of in front.
