Eva Longoria is following in BFF Victoria Beckham's footsteps!


Eva Longoria is hot on the fashionable heels of best friend Victoria Beckham and will launch her own collection later this year! The 41-year-old will release a line through US retailer The Limited, which will be available to shop from 15 August.

Actress Eva's line will be stocked in 250 stores across America – but UK fashion bunnies shouldn't worry as you'll also be able to buy it online. According to reports she's focused mainly on denim and body-con dresses, but the range will also include casual T-shirts and leggings.

Speaking previously to WWD, Eva, the ex-Desperate Housewives star revealed she's been sewing since she was a little girl, which makes her something of an expert on the fit of clothes.

Eva explained: "I learned to sew as a kid. At first, all I could sew was straight lines – curtains, pillows, duvets. That's why I started my JCPenny home line. But if it had a sleeve or arm or leg, I was like, 'No.'

"When I was in high school, I would go to Jo-Ann fabrics and get scrap fabric and patterns on sale to practice with. That's how I learned to cut on the bias."

And Eva's sewing experience means The Limited are confident their customers will love the new designs. CEO Diane Ellis said: "Because she's a sewer, Eva is astute with aspects of fit; she knows what's complimentary to the body. We did some research on our client, who's a sophisticated professional, and we were amazed at her response to how much she saw Eva as a strong woman activist who leads in all aspects of life."


No doubt Eva has asked 42-year-old Victoria for advice, following the huge success of the former Spice Girl's eponymous fashion brand.
