Lifestyle Style Real Style of the 'Desperate Housewives' How do their offscreen looks compare with the women of Wisteria Lane? See how Eva, Teri and the rest of the ladies dress up – and down By People Staff Published on September 20, 2006 02:00 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Trending Videos 01 of 05 EVA LONGORIA Andrew Shawaf/Pacific Coast News; Fernando Allende/NY Post/Splash News The Texan beauty plays up her petite frame with strapless dresses in bold colors and prints, whether on her way to lunch in L.A. (left) or at a gala in Nanette Lepore polka dots. And unlike Gabrielle, she doesn’t have to worry about mowing the lawn in any of them. 02 of 05 TERI HATCHER MATRIX/BAUER-GRIFFIN; Jason Kirk/DailyCeleb She may be a single mom like her character Susan, but in real life, Hatcher is more of a free spirit, moving from well-cut jeans and a beribboned top in London (left) to relaxed elegance in black and white on the red carpet in L.A. 03 of 05 FELICITY HUFFMAN Michael Bezjian/WireImage; Gilbert Flores/Celebrity Photo All those triathlons are paying off! Unlike business-suit-friendly mom Lynette, Huffman shows off her toned arms and back in neutral colored dresses (left, in white eyelet at an L.A. event, and in a sexy stunner at the Emmys). 04 of 05 NICOLLETTE SHERIDAN Lenny Abbot/INF; Dave M. Benett/Getty Taking a cue from maneater Edie, Sheridan vamps it up on and off the red carpet, favoring figure-hugging shapes and super-high heels, whether on the streets of New York (left) or an event in London. 05 of 05 MARCIA CROSS Tammie Arroyo/AFF; ANDREA RENAULT/GLOBE Is playing buttoned-up Bree making her blue, or is she just playing up her ivory skin and signature fiery hair? Besides bold hues, the actress sticks to simple, body-skimming shapes (left, at in L.A., and promoting her show in New York).
