Zoe Saldana in baby blue lace at the Eva Longoria Foundation benefit: awful or cute?

It’s Friday and I’m still kind of shell shocked from losses to Democrats in my district and our neighboring district. I know that we took the house and that we have more women, and women of color, in Congress than any time in history. It still feels underwhelming to me but admittedly my expectations were too high. Maybe we’ll get some indictments for Christmas though.

That’s what came to mind when I saw Eva Longoria with her friends at a benefit for her foundation. (She started the Eva Longoria Foundation six years ago. They’re focused on “bettering the lives of Latinas through education and entrepreneurship.” Here’s their website.) Eva, Zoe Saldana, Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera and Gina Rodriguez campaigned together for Andrew Gillum, who would probably be governor of Florida if it wasn’t for massive voter suppression and fraud. I just wonder how they’re feeling about that and the election results in general. Zoe and Eva did an interview with ET from the event where they focused on the positive though. Eva said that it was so much fun to campaign together that “we forgot it was work.” She also said that Zoe gives her baby advice, which is cute.

I hope Zoe is not giving Eva fashion advice though because this dress she wore was pretty bad. It’s a bad color, there are too many tiny buttons, and it has dippy see through lace and puffy sleeves. Duchess Kate is wondering where she can buy it.


Rosario Dawson just wore a nondescript navy blue lace skirt paired with a long sleeve black top. This isn’t bad, she’s just trying to dress for the occasion.

Eva was in a crimson wrap dress that looks professional and comfortable. I have a dress similar to this and so I love it.


Gina Rodriguez is so pretty but this dress is bizarre. It’s a lovely deep green velvet and if it could make up its mind whether it had sleeves or not it would be fine. Gina received the “Latina Leadership Award.”

Look at how in love Gina is with her fiance, Joe LoCicero. They are adorable.

Bonus Terry Crews and his wife, Rebecca King-Crews! My god he looks sharp.


Can I get this feeling back please?

    Zoe’s dress is ugly but her face looks beautiful, therefore she looks beautiful???

    Them working together makes me love all of them more. I don’t usually like Rosario Dawson (though hats off to her long-standing activism) or Zoe but I am feeling a ton of affection for them all here. I like how they represent a spectrum of countries in Latin America and have included Afrolatinas in their collective. They are super-positive and it makes me feel better about the election results and how they, through their presence and positivity, are pushing back against Trump’s racism and anti-Latinx rhetoric.

    So awful

    The wonky buttonwork make the dress even worse.

    Love them all for their hard work and effort, they all walk the talk and have for years. I once read that Rosario Dawson has been so active for over a decade as an advocate, enough that progressive wonks and politico types would see her so often trying to raise awareness for Latino issues that they would sniff at her as a C list actress and not glam enough for their time. That’s putting in the time and not caring what people think.

    Compare that to everyone’s ‘nice guy’s guy’ Hugh Jackman who loves Murdoch and Kushner’s and doesn’t seem to care about racism or POC issues. I’m going to spend more time and money on Rosario, America, Eva etc’s projects because they inspire upwards!!
