Eva Longoria is set to walk down the aisle in a big Mexico wedding with fiance Jose Antonio Baston this weekend. The Hollywood actress’ nuptials will be made even more special with a fashionable wedding dress designed by Longoria’s good friend Victoria Beckham.
The “Desperate Housewives” alum will be saying “I Do” to Mexican businessman Baston in a big wedding to be held in Acapulco this weekend, People magazine reported. The couple has been dating since 2013. Baston and Longoria got engaged in December 2015 when the Latin media brand Televisa head asked the big question during the couple’s Dubai vacation.
Some of the guests expected to attend Longoria and Baston’s nuptials include the couple’s family and friends, as well as a few celebrities. A source told People magazine that the couple is “expecting half of Hollywood” to attend the wedding. The former “Spice Girls” singer and husband David are included in the guest list, as well as singer Ricky Martin, Katy Perry, Penelope Cruz and “Jane the Virgin” star Jamie Camil. Mario Lopez is also expected to attend Longoria and Baston’s wedding, as well as Amaury Nolasco.
For Longoria’s wedding dress, the “Telenovela” actress will be wearing a specially designed gown by Beckham. Longoria was said to have asked Beckham to design a one-of-a-kind wedding dress that will showcase that actress’ “famous curves,” according to The Sun. The Beckham designed dress will also feature “romantic” and “sexy” elements.
A source shared with The Sun that Beckham will be giving the wedding dress to Longoria for free. “She won’t charge ... Eva’s a friend — and it’s not like she needs the money,” the source stated. It appears that the former singer turned fashion designer is also hoping Longoria’s wedding dress will spark interest for Beckham’s wedding dress line.
The source mentioned that Beckham has been “keen to expand the wedding dress side of the business.” Longoria and Baston’s wedding will be a good chance to market the fashionista’s wedding gown collection. The source even described the actress’ upcoming nuptials as a “perfect publicity” for Beckham’s fashion line.
Meanwhile, Longoria’s upcoming wedding to Baston will mark the actress’ third marriage. The “Desperate Housewives” alum was previously married to NBA player Tony Parker and actor Tyler Christopher.
