Eva Longoria Parker may play one on TV, but she’s no desperate housewife.  The actress is usually flawless on the red carpet, and I love the aqua blue jewel collar dress she wore to the recent Critics’ Choice Awards.

Although the jewel collar trend has been around for a few seasons, it’s still going strong and has transformed from gaudy and costume-like to a funky and sophisticated formal look.  I couldn’t find a dress in the same standout color as Eva’s, but I found a few stylish jewel collar dress options that will give every Hot Mama a Hollywood makeover.
