There were so many rumors going around about Eva being pregnant, that even her mom called to ask her.
In a recent interview with E! News, Eva was asked about her recent honeymoon and the pregnancy rumors that came with that trip. And it turns out…the rumors are NOT true – she was just bloated from eating cheese, which happens to all of us tbh. That’s what vacations are for after all, right?
So next time someone in your family falsely thinks you’re pregnant, just follow Eva’s example and give them the honest truth…pregnant? Nah, just eating good food.
Fashion Week represents so much for up-and-coming designers, celebs, models, and editors. For many people in the fashion industry, being present at Paris Fashion Week is perhaps the climax of their career.
Fashion is known for being on the cutting edge of everything. But the one thing the industry is still severely behind on is diversity. For Latinos, the chances of being part of the Parisian event are pretty small as they navigate the nepotism and politics of the fashion industry. To be honest, fashion’s history with embracing Latinos (except for Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta, of course) is mediocre at best. This is why we can’t help but get excited when we see Latinos making headlines in the chicest of fashion weeks.
Latino talent represented at Paris Fashion Week thanks to a small group of special ladies and gentlemen.
Latino talent is rising through the ranks. A group of people, in particular, made the week a total success; Camila Cabello Walked the runway alongside Eva Mendez, Rick Owens showcased a Mexican inspired collection, nine Dominican beauties made history on the catwalk, and Cardi B slayed street style in a wild outfit. Here are the biggest Latino moments from 2019’s Paris Fashion Week this September.
Rick Owens: The California born designer took on immigration, the border wall and his own Mexican heritage during his show.
Born in California, Rick Owens is known for always giving his audience something to talk about. His Spring-Summer 2020 collection was an homage to a big influence in his life: his 87-year old Mexican immigrant mother. Owens was raised in the U.S., lives in France, and manufactures his clothes in Italy. “That all wouldn’t work without open borders,” he told Vogue alluding to the infamous wall that has caused so much tension between the U.S. and Mexico.
As is often the case with designers, Owens’ inspiration didn’t just come from one reference. His collection draws references from Bauhaus and Mexican architecture, art and theater —and of course has his own spin on it. The result was a magical collection of pyramid-shaped floor-length gowns, tunics and regal shoulders. On their heads, models wore Aztec inspired crowns.
Tinged by rich hues of yellow and brick red, the collection was a glimpse into a futuristic world seen through the eyes of someone whose roots lie on both sides of the much-discussed wall.
Cardi B slayed the paparazzi in a face-covering, head-to-toe outfit.
The rapper set off a paparazzi firestorm on the streets of Paris this Saturday. Clad in a head-to-toe floral ensemble that covered every inch of her body —yes, face included, the rapper was serving a look.
The green and blue outfit designed by British fashion designer Richard Quinn disguised her face, making it difficult to guess who was hiding under the surreal ensemble. That was until she spoke, and her familiar tone was heard by everyone around.
“I heard you bitches were missing me at Fashion Week New York. I’m here to serve it to you mother-f–kers, and serve it to you cold,” she said in an Instagram video where she also confirmed that she couldn’t see a thing. Instructing her bodyguard and photographers to get out of her way, the pop star joked, “a bitch can’t see.”
Camila Cabello and Eva Longoria walked the runway.
Camila Cabello and Eva Longoria is the dynamic duo we didn’t know we needed in our lives. The two Latinx powerhouse celebs walked the runway for L’Oreal Paris’ show on Saturday alongside other celebs including Helen Mirren and Andie Macdowell. The show, which intended to celebrate womanhood by featuring ladies of all ages and different backgrounds, brought together an all-star cast for models.
The “Señorita” singer wore a black blazer with matching pants and chunky heels. Her long luscious dark hair was her only accessory of the night. Eva Longoria looked stunning in a black mock turtle neck and a navy leather skirt. The “Desperate Housewives” star brought out her adorable 15-month-old baby, Santiago with her on the runway.
Nine Dominicans make history walking the Valentino show.
Latino representation is still abysmally behind in this industry. This week, however, we had a small victory on the runway at Valentino’s Spring-Summer 2020 show in Paris.
The highlight of the night was that 9 Dominican models owned the runway. Sculy Mejía, Lineisy Montero, Hiandra Martinez, Jenniffer Concepcion, Melanie Perez, Kimberly Gilbert, Martha Almanzar, Yorgelis Marte, and Licett Morillo all made history that night. The fashion show, which was the first to ever feature nine Latinas, had a total cast of 80 models from around the world —other than the Dominican squad of nine, most models were European.
Earlier this year, a major college admission scandal was exposed and at the center of it was actress Felicity Huffman. Huffman was found guilty of mail fraud for paying $15,000 to increase her daughter’s SAT scores. As of now, she awaits sentencing but is expected to be given at least a month in prison for her crime.
However, before the judge announces her sentence, celebrity friends and loved ones have sent in letters of support for Huffman, asking for leniency.
Among the letters was a testimonial from her “Desperate Housewives” co-star, Eva Longoria, and it revealed some major onset drama.

In the letter, Longoria called Huffman her “good friend” and recalled how welcoming the actress was to the Latina, who was new to Hollywood at the time. She also recalled her first table read where Huffman offered support to her co-star after seeing her “alone, scared, and unsure of where to go and what to do.”
Additionally, Longoria revealed that she was bullied on set by another actress. Though she didn’t divulge who the bully was, “Desperate Housewives” was plagued by drama and tension between the cast and had rumors of a feud between Teri Hatcher and the rest of the actors.
Longoria wrote, “I dreaded the days I had to go to work with that person because it was pure torture.”
In the letter, Longoria revealed that the bullying didn’t stop until Huffman intervened.
“Felicity could feel that I was riddled with anxiety even though I never complained or mentioned the abuse to anyone,” the actress said in the letter.
The letter also revealed other ways that Huffman supported Longoria during their time at “Desperate Housewives.”

It was also revealed that Longoria was being paid less than her co-stars. According to the letter, it was Huffman’s idea to pursue renegotiations as a group so they could reach a fair conclusion.
“That did not go over too well with the others,” Longoria explained. “But Felicity stood up for me, saying it was fair because the success of the show depended on all of us, not one of us. The fight lasted weeks, but Felicity held strong and convinced everyone this was the right thing to do.”
The letter also revealed that Huffman was the only co-star that supported Longoria’s charities and special projects.
“[The other women] were all usually too busy to help, except Felicity,” she wrote. “I can’t tell you how many times she was the only one who would physically show up to help me with kids with cancer, or children with special needs.”
Though Longoria’s letter comes from a place of friendship, not everyone appreciated the actress’ support of Huffman.

Some Twitter users pointed out that Longoria’s letter shouldn’t circumvent the justice system and that Huffman’s punishment shouldn’t be lessened just because of the words of her friends and family.
Other’s mentioned the injustice that was perpetrated against a deserving student because of Huffman’s actions.

In order to get her daughter into college, Huffman took a position from a deserving student who didn’t have the privilege of a parent who would buy their acceptance. Character witnesses from Huffman’s friends and family don’t negate the wrong she did to this student.
Overall, we don’t know if Longoria’s letter will help with leniency, but a lot of us still appreciate that “Desperate Housewives” tea she spilled.
