‘Desperate Housewives‘ star Eva Longoria fronts the alternative cover of the July ‘Women Of The Year’ issue of UK Glamour magazine — Checkout the other cover featuring Kylie Minogue here.
Eva tells the magazine how she feels about ‘Desperate Housewives’ coming to an end.
“It’s very emotional and melancholy – it’s definitely surreal [to have come to the end], but it’s so exciting to see what the next chapter in my life is going to be. Through the eight years, I’ve had to stay in LA for 10 months of the year, so I could never really do anything else. I was always busy filming”, Eva shares with Glamour.
The 44-year-old ‘Holy Motors’ actress is all smiles as she strikes a seductive pose in a turquoise Dolce & Gabbana crochet longsleeve dress with applique flower on the colourful cover.

Jennifer Lopez’s beauty is undeniably a precious gem. So it was very fitting when it was announced last month that the Latina singer will take over from Kylie Minogue as the new spokesmodel for Tous Jewelry’s 2011 Spring Collection line.
The photos for JLo’s new Ad campaign for the 90-year old Spanish company were recently revealed. The photos are sizzling hot, with JLo’s conventional beauty almost stealing the spotlight away from the jewelry pieces she’s modeling. But the unique jewelry pieces manage to hold their own.
The shot is oriental themed and was lensed by Ellen Von Unwerth. JLo channels a sexy Geisha for the shot, posing with Asian props in most of the photos. She also dons a lot of silk and bright-coloured outfits for the shot, resembling the Geisha’s kimono.
In the 80s, male artists such as David Bowie, Boy George and Prince kept us enthralled with their androgyny. More so, no male iconic idol personified androgyny better than Michael Jackson, with his falsetto vocals and effeminate demeanor. In recent years, female singers such as Beyonce (If I Were a Boy) and Rihanna (Rude boy) have also embraced androgyny. But perhaps consistent female androgynous acts have been Lady Gaga, Grace Jones and Ciara.
Now a new female act that embodies sheer androgyny has entered the fray in the form of Jessie J. Her tough, masculine and strong traits on her debut single “Do it Like A Dude” oozes complete sex appeal.
Her aggressively stunning performance in the music video for the song makes it quite easy to mistake her for one of the boys. What makes Jessie’s take on sexual ambiguity even sexier is that she does it with confidence. Why wouldn’t she? After all the British songstress is openly bisexual.
But don’t be fooled into thinking that Jessie’s recently found stardom is just a result of an overexposure rouse. This Essex born singer has worked her way to the top. For starters she studied music at the celebrated BRIT School, with alumni such as fellow established UK singers Adela and Amy Winehouse.
Jessie was also the supporting act for Cyndi Lauper during her 2008 UK tour. Earlier this year she won the prestigious Critics’ Choice award at the BRIT Awards, joining past winners Adele and Florence and the Machine.
Above all, throughout the years Jessie has managed to make a name for herself as an established songwriter, penning lyrics for Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys and Rihanna. The most successful song she ever co-wrote being Miley Cyrus’ 2009 hit “Party in the USA”.
You cannot help but fall in love with Jessie’s powerful strong voice, which is similar to that of Lily Allen. Her voice convey three emotions – sexy, sassy and sultry.
The 22-year old caused a huge frenzy with the release of her first single “Do it Like A Dude” last year November, which she originally wrote for Rihanna after hearing “Rude Boy”. The song managed to peak at No.2 on the British Singles chart.
Her second single “Price Tag” featuring rapper B.o.B demanded just as much success. The up-tempo reggae influenced song is Jessie’s successful record to date, after it debuted atop the British Singles chart. The song also managed to accomplisg the important feat of preventing Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” from debuting at No.1 in the UK.
Jessie’s freshman album “Who You Are” was scheduled for a late March release, but due to demand, she pushed forward the release date to 25 February in the UK.
With artists such as Justin Timberlake, Kylie Minogue and JLS proclaiming themselves as fans, there is no doubt that Jessie J should be on everyone’s 2011 “Artists-To-watch” list.
