It pays to be best friends with a designer. Just ask Eva Longoria, who had her dress altered for the Global Gift Gala in London Tuesday by Victoria Beckham herself!

Posh ditched her ever-present high heels and got down on her hands and knees to make last-minute tweaks to the long black sheer-paneled design from her collection. Hours later Longoria rocked it on the red carpet (and you agree — she currently has an 87 percent “Love It” rating from PEOPLE readers).

Beckham totally transformed the dress for Longoria, switching it up from the midi that originally hit the catwalk at her Spring 2013 show last year into an elegant full-length stunner.

The designer also supported her friend on the red carpet, wearing yet another floor-skimming black look from her own archives, consisting of a silk plunging blouse and matching skirt (which is also a hit with readers!).

Are you a fan of the looks? Whose is your favorite? Share your thoughts below.

Eva looked fantastic and I think it’s great that Victoria seems to care about all aspects of fashion, including the “dirty work.”

I love Victoria!

Proof that Eva is a long way from Corpus Christi Texas. :-)

Armenian superstition: It is not good to sew on the person while the person’s wearing the clothes.

Why is Eva’s make up and hair the same if the fitting was for the next night? Do these actresses really go all out like that to make sure they look flawless on the night of whatever event?

The picture of Eva during the fitting looks like a Madame Tussaud’s wax figure….not being hateful, just strikes me as an odd photo.

I hate Eva’s dress. Did she not know the flash bulbs would make it look so ugly?

zealforliza, she is not sewing, that is a superstition in Turkey too, but she is just fitting, so that should be OK.

Love Victoria Beckham!!!

Nice to see Victoria doing some dirty work. To the posters who are writing about the superstition of “sewing on a live person”, I know that too. And I am Guyanese! That is so interesting.
