She gave fans a daring glimpse of her perfectly toned rear end in a floor length black and sheer dress at last week's Alma Awards.
But Eva Longoria has gone one better and stripped off completely for a new arty coffee-table book Asleep at the Chteau.
The 37-year-old actress is shown lying down with a white bed sheet casually covering her legs while her bare back and rear end face the camera.

Her eyes are closed in a 'sleeping' pose and her dark hair strewn around the pillow.
The star is one of several stars including Orlando Bloom, Justin Theroux and Usher snapped by fashion and beauty photographer Jork Weismann for the book, set at Los Angeles's legendary hotel The Chateau Marmont.
The stars are showed sprawled out in chairs, on couches or across the floor in various states of undress.

Despite Eva's enviable figure, the ex-Desperate Housewives star has had her own struggles with keeping in shape.
'I work out in the mornings when I get up. I have to do it then – if it's after 11am it just doesn't happen,' she once told Look magazine.
'I have to get it done while I'm still on autopilot because I hate exercising.'
Luckily, she has a gym in her house and a personal trainer to put her through her paces.
'I tried Pilates, but I couldn't deal with it,' she revealed. Dancing is also a great way to stay fit – I wish I could do that every day.'
And like many of us, Eva also reveals she has a few fast food weaknesses, although is healthy most of the time.
'I do have confidence in my self-image. It's all about food and exercise – I don't really eat a lot of carbs,' she said.
'I did two months recently without sugar too. And once you start paying attention, everything sees to contain it. It's like, “Oh my god, even this banana is sugary.”
'But I do love French fries.'
Eva, who is busy campaigning for the re-election of Barack Obama, recently revealed she is dating again after splitting with Penelope's brother Eduardo Cruz.
The actress recently told Extra host Mario Lopez she is seeing NFL star Mark Sanchez: 'Mark and I are, you know, fine. We're happy just dating.'
But a source told Access Hollywood this week that the Mexican-American New York Giants player is head over heels with the divorced star: 'He is really in love with her and serious about her,' the source said.
