The actress admitted earlier this year she had piled on the pounds for her role in TV series 'Desperate Housewives' but has recently been sporting a slimmer physique.

However, pictures from a recent party thrown in her honour by Allure magazine - to celebrate her appearance on their cover - revealed the actress was wearing smoothing garments Spanx.

At the Allure party - held at Eva's Los Angeles restaurant Beso - her 'Desperate Housewives' co-star Felicity Huffman joked she would be keeping her friend away from alcohol.

Felicity laughed: "When Eva's not drunk, she is so good and talented. And I'm just hoping tonight we can keep her off the sauce.

"She's the most joyful, generous, industrious, down-to-earth person that I know, so if she invites me to the opening of a letter, I'll go."

Other guests at the party included Victoria Beckham, who took supermodel Heidi Klum as her 'date' so their husbands could spend time together.

Victoria said: "She lives just down the road from me. David and Seal are friends and the kids play together."
