Eva Longoria Parker dazzled at the Met's Costume Institute Gala in a white and gold metallic strapless Marchesa gown. Check out the fancy train!

Eva is one of several stars (including Seth MacFarlane, Ricky Martin, Shakira and George Lopez) who has spoken out in protest against a controversial new anti-immigration law in Arizona. The bill allows cops to question any individual who they suspect is an illegal immigrant. It also requires legal immigrants to carry their registration documents at all times.

Definitely one who stands up for what she believes in, the "Desperate Housewives" star recently asked fans to help her favorite charity win a $250,000 grant. She is a long-term spokeswoman for Padres Contra El Cancer and is eyeing a cash prize for the organization from the Pepsi Refresh Everything initiative.
