Do Eva Longoria and Victoria Beckham have the same makeup artist? Looking at the London Global Gift Gala red carpet, it's a serious possibility. The duo wore smoky eye makeup so similar, it had to be a coordinated effort. The shadow was dark black with shimmer, and the waterline was accented with inky eyeliner. The lashes were also given extra oomph with loads of mascara. From there, the makeup palettes veered a bit, but each lady stuck to neutral tones and blush. Eva wore warm peach on her cheeks and lips, while Victoria stuck with a rosy blush and matte taupe lipstick. Who wears this inky smoky eye better?
Eva Longoria and Victoria Beckham just arrived at the Global Gift Gala happening across the pond. Both stars opted for elegant black gowns. While Victoria stepped out in a long-sleeved two-piece look and a bold cocktail ring, Eva showed a little skin (and a hint of her lacy underthings) in a cutaway black gown from her designer friend — but, if you were following along, you probably remember Eva's look from last night, in which we got a glimpse of Victoria working on Eva's gown. Want to see the scene before the glamorous red carpet results?
If you're Victoria Beckham, there's no sense in messing with a good thing. The designer struck a familiar pose (with one leg jutting forward, her body slightly turned, and her hair tucked to one side) when she attended a book launch party for friend Kelly Hoppen's new tome, Design Masterclass, in London on Monday alongside her hairdresser Ken Paves. Being a veteran of having her photo taken, Victoria has stuck to this pose when she steps out at special events, including at the 2013 Bambi Awards last week and at Harper's Bazaar's Women of the Year Awards earlier this month.
Victoria's other famous photograph standby, a stern, un-smiling, look, has gained a lot of attention over the years. However, Victoria revealed why she never smiles earlier this year, saying that people "can look daft" when they are always smiling in paparazzi photos. However, she did admit that she smiles in family photos. One thing that might have Victoria smiling this week is that Eva Longoria will be wearing one of her designs at the Global Gift Gala later tonight. Victoria even shared a behind-the-scenes snap of her and Eva getting to work.

Versace, Karl Lagerfeld, Maison Martin Margiela, Lanvin and as of tomorrow Isabel Marant have all done it — so who's next? Now that the latest H&M collaboration is hitting stores we're already hungry for another designer series to be announced.
And as we wait, we can certainly dream! While some of our fantasies are as big as they come (Tom Ford, after all, has touched on the topic of working with H&M and closed the book on the idea . . . for now) others feel like meant-to-be partnerships, like Prada whose quirky sensibility would make for a distinctive and playful pairing. And since we're so enamored with the Olsens' and Victoria Beckham's style, wouldn't their minimalist, tailored aesthetics make a perfect fit with the retailer? Of course, if H&M wanted to take a more dramatic route, they could pursue the romantic stylings of Valentino or dare to walk on the edge with Riccardo Tisci (H&M Bambi sweatshirts, anyone?). Cast your vote for your dream H&M collaboration, or tell us who else you'd like to see in the comments!
Victoria Beckham struck a pose on Friday at the MyTheresa store in Munich, where she presented her Spring/Summer 2014 Collection, including a line of handbags made exclusively for the retailer. She traveled to Germany yesterday and already stopped in Berlin for the Bambi Awards. Victoria was honored in the fashion category and received her statue from designer Karl Lagerfeld. She later took to Twitter to share her excitement writing, "Thank u Karl Lagerfeld for your beautiful words. This award means so much to me." While Victoria's current designs garnered her recent accolades, one of her fashion statements from the past is also in the spotlight. The diamond and gold tiara Victoria wore during her 1999 wedding to David Beckham is going up for auction. The piece, which is valued around $40,000, will be up for grabs on Dec. 5 at Bonhams in London. Happy bidding!
Miley Cyrus channeled her inner Taylor Swift when she squealed in surprise upping seeing her adorable new award during the 2013 Bambi Awards in Berlin on Thursday. Miley was honored in the international pop category and performed for the audience after changing out of a demure Jean Paul Gaultier black dress and into a neon ensemble. Victoria Beckham was also honored at the event under the fashion category and got presented with her award by legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld. The pair exchanged air kisses on the stage and later posed for photos together with Victoria's award on the red carpet. Other honorees include Robbie Williams and Bill and Melinda Gates.
Miley has been causing quite the stir in Europe over the past week. On Sunday, she made headlines when she lit up a joint while accepting an award at the MTV EMAs in Amsterdam. The singer's hectic schedule may be taking a toll on her, as she tweeted right before the award show that she is starting to feel sick. "All this traveling is finally taking its toll on me," Miley wrote.
After what seems like eons of baring her midriff and getting dangerously close to exposing herself to the world's media, Miley Cyrus is looking a lot more covered up.
The singer, who as we all know has some definite opinions about fashion, showed up to the Bambi Awards in Berlin dressed in an ultraconservative black dress — floor-length, long-sleeved, the whole nine yards — and a gold necklace accentuated with gigantic pearls with red lips. Cyrus was so covered up that she showed even less skin than Victoria Beckham, who also walked the carpet and whose own designs tend to be, well, covered up.

At the 2013 Bambi Awards in Germany, both Miley Cyrus and Victoria Beckham slipped into LBDs, but they opted for very different makeup looks. Miley lined her eyes in kohl and swept on a blood red lipstick, while Victoria opted for something to play up her eyes. She paired a nude lipstick hue with high-on-sparkle eye shadow. Both looks were beautiful, and both showed off the versatility of the LBD, but whose did you prefer?
