Standing at just 5ft 2, Eva Longoria is known for her delicate, slim figure.
But arriving on red carpet at the closing ceremony of the Monte Carlo Television Festival, her tiny frame was swamped by an origami-style gown.
The actress, 37, was representing her former show Desperate Housewives solo without her co-stars, as the series was named Best TV Comedy at the glamorous Monaco bash.
