Eva Longoria picked the perfect comeback outfit for a very special outing on Sunday, walking the red carpet for the first time since welcoming her baby boy Santiago Enrique. The actress was smoldering in a revealing white blazer mini-dress as she attended the premiere of her film Dog Days in L.A.'s Century City neighborhood. Eva turned to celebrity stylist Charlene E. Roxborough Konsker for the back to work look and she was flanked by her glam co-stars Nina Dobrev and Vanessa Hudgens on her first high profile night out since becoming a mom on June 19.

The previous day the 43-year-old star had joined Nina and Vanessa and their fellow co-stars Adam Pally and Tone Bell, as well as the movie’s director Ken Marino in a round of interviews at the Four Seasons Hotel to promote the movie. Rocking that new mom glow, Eva donned a form-fitting black dress and had expert guidance from her trusted glam squad.
“Beautiful working mom @evalongoria working it,” celebrity hairdresser Ken Paves, who also works with stars like Jennifer Lopez, wrote on Instagram along with a gorgeous picture of the actress voguing. He imbued Eva’s hair with sandy highlights, giving his client an Ombré look for her outing. Ken was also sure to give credit to his glam-partner-in-crime.

Elan Bongiorno is Eva’s chosen makeup artist, having even done up the beauty for our magazine covers in the past. On this special occasion she kept Eva’s makeup warm, painting her on a smoky eyed-look (which she called “Elan eyes”) and chic light lipstick. “The always radiant @evalongoria,” she proudly wrote on her own Instagram.

Eva shared a series of highlights from the press conference to her Instagram story, showing her seated at a table with her castmates, entertaining media questions. When asked how she became involved with the film, she joked: “Well, I called him and was like if you don’t put me in this movie, I will tweet those photos.” As the room filled with laughter, Eva was clearly in her element, hitting the joke home: “So I blackmailed him. He had to put me in the movie.”
Getting more serious, Eva admitted: “It’s so great to have an actor-director, because they speak your language.” She went on to say that Ken is her “kind of funny.” Little Santiago’s mom seemed refreshed at the event, most likely because she was off the heels of an undisclosed summer beach vacation with friends and family. Dog Days hits theaters on August 8.
