New Zealand goes a bit funny when famous folk come for a visit. It’s that classic Kiwi combo of pride and self-doubt. And it was no different when Eva Longoria popped in recently to spruik some of her perfume, cut the ribbon on The Shopping Channel and answer a few questions at an event put on by Woman’s Day and L’Oreal. The security was almost Obama-level, with pre-event checks and phones handed in at the door, but with a bit of baksheesh we managed to get our hands on collection of glamour shots from the night. So fill your boots. And eyes.
