Much like her fiery and always fashionable onscreen Desperate Housewives character, Gabrielle Solis, Eva Longoria Parker is also promising to stir things up, at least stylistically speaking, as the host of the upcoming MTV Europe Music Awards on Nov. 7. “Music awards are always pushing the limits of fashion, so anything goes,” she tells MTV in a promotional interview. “There is kind of a double license to wear what you want. Normal rules don’t apply. So, I’m going to try and see if I can pull off some ‘way out’ outfits.” And while Eva is looking forward to testing the fashion waters at the upcoming event in Madrid, she also fesses up to some outrageous ensembles from the not-so-distant past. “I wore a skimpy pink swimsuit at the MTV VMAs in Miami in 2005. That was pretty daring but I think I carried it off,” she says. And her ultimate fashion cringe-worthy moment? “I wore a leather outfit to the premiere of Tomb Raider. That was a real fashion faux pas!” Although Eva has had just a few red-carpet ‘what was she thinking?’ moments, one designer that she’s definitely going to don for the show never disappoints. “One thing is for sure, I will be wearing one of Victoria Beckham‘s dresses. She’s a good friend of mine,” she says. See the fashionista get into the music groove in her rap video below and tune in to MTV2 on Nov. 7 at 9 p.m. ET to watch Eva in her many outfits at the EMAs! –Jessie Goldberg
