18 AUGUST 2008

It's among the most high-profile events on the Latino calendar, so it was only fitting that someone as glamorous as Eva Longoria was host of the 2008 ALMA Awards this weekend. And the Desperate Housewives star certainly didn't disappoint – delighting the star-studded crowd in a series of different outfits and hairdos.

The fun-loving actress clearly enjoyed her role as host, too - taking to the stage to dance along to a performance by the Black Eyed Peas.

Other famous Latinas making an impact on the night included Ugly Betty star America Ferrera and Hips Don't Lie songstress Shakira. America scooped the coveted entertainer of the year gong for her role in the hit comedy, while Colombian chanteuse Shakira was honoured for her humanitarian efforts.

Meanwhile, showing off her enviable post-baby figure in an eye-catching pink gown, was Fantastic Four star Jessica Alba, who revealed her new role as mum to two-month-old Honor suits her down to the ground. "I'd like to have as many children as my body will allow - and I'd adopt if I still want more children after that!" she said.
