Eva Longoria has revealed how she turns to Victoria Beckham for fashion advice.

The former Desperate Housewives star has a stylist, who she uses regularly, but she prefers to get red carpet tips from her fashion designer friend Victoria.

“I send her pictures and ask what I should wear. I love how Victoria is a minimalist, she wears minimal jewellery, everything is clean lines,” Eva told Vogue Australia.

“I really admire that because if it were up to me, I’d be a Christmas tree. I’m like, diamonds, necklaces, bracelets, sparkly! And she’s like…’No’.”

The pair – who forged a firm friendship after the Beckhams moved to Los Angeles in 2007, when Victoria’s husband David joined US football team LA Galaxy – also discuss challenges in the industry.

“It is easy to talk to people who understand the pressures that you’re under,” Eva continued. “As frivolous as some may seem and as serious as others are, there are things that you face in our industry. Nobody wants to hear a celebrity complain because there are way more pros than cons!”
