Celebrities Reviewed: Eva Longoria-Parker ( Desperate Housewives) and Sandra Oh ( Greys Anatomy)
Sandra Oh
Color: Black is a great choice for her deep colouring.
Body Shape:
The shape of her dress with the sachet in the waist gives her a tiny waist. However the neckline of the dress doesn’t work in her favour. it is cut too high for her proportions and it makes her upper body look very long (too long). Her neck is not short and wide, but her face is very long so she needs to follow virtually the same rules as those having a short, wide neck. Her neckline needs to wider and deeper to balance both her face and body.
Style: All the layers in her skirt line work for her bodyshape without shortening her height or proportions. The sleeveless dress gives her a shoulder line the balance with the skirt hem line. Yet this dress is not an ideal choice for her very long arms.Choosing accessories like strong bracelets, and a chunky clutch handbag would visually have created dimension and shortened her long arms.
Big plus is that additional accessories would have provided an upbeat, contemporary style for her. Though her look is “youthful” with a pony tail and waves in her hair, her entire look is missing a bit of an edge and quirky style that reflects her personal style and personality. . She looks “nice”– meaning looking too ordinary. The entire look does not have the “Sandra Oh” personal touch and feel- her unique DNA so to speak.
Overall Rating: 4**** Four stars

Eva Longoria
Style: First I want to say I adore her, but I had to look twice since I thought at first it was Victoria Beckham. She not only managed to copy Posh’s look completely, but managed to overdo it. It is all too much! She is beautiful and successful in her own right, so why would she copy someone elses look?
Her hairstyle, her pose, length of dress and style of shoes all shout VB/POSH!
It is a cardinal sin to copy so much that you are mistaken for someone else!! The only reason why someone could tell them apart is that Posh wears her hair shorter now,- moving on to a new style. Eva is stuck with VB’s old look and image. What happened to her make up (especially her blush on her cheeks) combined with this hairstyle? It makes her look like a burlesque queen from a “Las Vegas or Moulin Rouge “show: very degrading since she is typically a shining star.
Color: The white colour is too light and bright for her and just shouts “too much” .
Body Shape:
The bow on her bosom is not a bad idea, but is far too big for her petite scale. She looks like a “walking present”. The rumours is she might be pregnant (or If the statement attributed to Felicity Huffman is true that Longoria-Parker has gained weight) . Either way, this “walking present” look is just very cheesy!
The length of the dress is great- it elongates her leg line. The stiletto shoes are great for her scale. It’s smar to keep the shoes and the dress in the same colour which makes her look taller.

Overall Rating: 1*(for being a copy cat & overdoing the look)
One Star.
