Accessorize Like Eva Longoria, Courtside


Professional athletes ask their devoted celebrity wives to attend a wide range of events, from morning press conferences to midday games and evening championship celebrations. Eva Longoria – despite all odds – always manages to look glamorous, sexy and still appropriate for every occasion. How does she do it? Jewelry.

Eva Longoria

Married to: Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs

Eva embraces earthy tones that complement her olive skin tone and brunette locks. Her jewelry is full of jade, citrine, chalcedony and diamond stones. These glistening, green, yellow and clear gems are appropriate at any occasion and can be piled on in petite gemstone clusters or worn as large, stand-alone pendants. Eva was recently seen wearing a multi-layer gold chain necklace with a large green quartz gemstone. As a single focus piece, the necklace was a tribute to her signature style and a gorgeous accessory all in one.

Jewelry is the secret weapon of every female celebrity, whether she’s strolling the red carpet or stepping out to the corner store for another box of ginger tea. Eva consistently dons fun dangly earrings, rich with gemstones and strong metals that add a particularly personal touch to her outfit. Chandelier earrings compliment her oval-shaped face and strong chin line when her hair is up, while shorter dangles bring attention to her eyes when her hair is down.

Take a look at your own shape and hairstyle and figure out what works best for you – long faces tend to benefit from linear cascade earring designs; Round faces look best with short, drop or cluster earrings. Heart shape faces allow longer, bigger hoops and chandeliers to fill in the space below the chin. Over time, every woman’s individual accessory style becomes part of her signature look, so it’s important to figure out what works and stick with it. Look for customizable jewelry shops, where you can choose the length of your earrings.

Unlike clothing, the most beautiful jewelry is timeless, so it can be worn again and again, with almost any outfit. However, just like clothing, jewelry colors must be tailored to the individual wearer to complement her natural features best. When choosing earrings, look for gemstone colors that match or are slightly darker than your eyes. This will enhance your natural sparkle and draw more attention to those baby blues (or browns, or greens…). With necklaces, be sure to keep in mind how strong your tan is – a blue necklace balances out pink or blotchy skin. Green gemstones look great on slightly olive tones. Pink or red tones warm up pale skin and black is a universal color that looks good on everyone.

While you consider Eva’s look, keep in mind that accessories are your opportunity to make your ensemble specifically yours and to develop your very own personal style. Add flare to an every day outfit, a wedding day ensemble or weekend night glam with jewelry that is perfectly and precisely you – your colors, your favorite metal, your shape and size. That way, there will always be a little glimpse of your true self in the office, at the altar or on the dance floor.
