Eva Longoria hosted the ALMA (American Latino Media Arts) Awards on Friday night and I can't even keep track of how many times she changed her outfit. I heard a rumor is was a total of fourteen times! Here are just a few of the changes she made. It's hard to choose, but I think my favorite is the strapless red and white mermaid style gown. Which was your favorite?
