A commitment to philanthropic endeavours proved worthy of a drink or two as Eva Longoria visited Spain’s prosperous wine country on Thursday afternoon. The Latina actress, 42, was joined by husband José Bastón for a trip to the sprawling vineyards of Basque wine Marqués De Riscal in provincial Álava. Sporting a pair of on-trend dungarees, Eva looked typically stylish as she visited the local brand’s architecturally stunning La Rioja cellar and winery.

Adding a splash of vibrancy to an otherwise muted colour scheme, the former Desperate Housewives star opted for a generous layer of deep red lipstick. Smoky touches of mascara, coupled with a rather liberal use of foundation and bronzer, served to accentuate her naturally olive skin tone.

Eva was on hand to sample some of the Basque wine on Thursday afternoon.

The visit held a special purpose to Eva, who has enjoyed a close affiliation with La Rioja wines through her charitable work with The Global Gift Foundation and its international fundraising event, the Global Gift Gala. The Spanish wine manufacturer has previously played a role in Gift Gala events staged in London, Miami and, more recently, Madrid.

Eva has been supporting the organization for years, attending its events in countries such as Spain, France, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates. Proceeds for the event benefit The Global Gift Foundation, a ‘philanthropic non-profit organisation that aims to create a positive impact on the lives of children, women and families who are in need.’  It has previously supported three bodies that provides education and entrepreneurship opportunities for women.

Her appearance also comes little more than a year after El Roioja honoured Eva with the The Prestigio Rioja Prize for her broad range of philanthropic endeavours.

Gianvito Rossi sprinkles its much-loved black leather Portofino sandals in glitter for the new season. They’re made in Italy with slender straps, a high arch and a vertiginous stiletto heel, and further distinguished by softly fringed trims. Wear them with a lustrous gown for modern contrast.

 

 

Although not exactly made for vineyard strolling, these are the kinds of heels we’d expect to see on Carrie Bradshaw and they’ve gone straight to the top of our wishlist. By Gianvito Rossi, they feature a slender stiletto and toe strap but of course it’s all about that black fringing.

The good news for us (and any other shoe obsessives out there) is these beauties are currently available to buy at MATCHESFASHION.COM, so click right to emulate Eva’s style. Or you could always feel the fringed benefits for less with our lookalike picks below:
